Parallel Health: Paving the Way to Better Skin with Microbiome Science
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have perfect skin while others struggle with acne, eczema, rosacea, and other skin issues? Well, there is science behind it. Our microbiomes are the ecosystems of bacteria, viruses, mites, and fungi that live in and on our bodies. When they're in balance, we generally feel good. When these systems aren't balanced, problems like acne occur. One of the key ways to optimize your health is to optimize your microbiome. Parallel Health, a skin telehealth company powered by microbiome science and genomics dedicated to clean, skin health, has recently come up with effective and innovative solutions for unique skin types with its proprietary system of products.
Led by a double-certified dermatologist, a world-class microbiologist Ph.D., and a Stanford MBA, the team at Parallel Health provides precision formulations with its phage technology to balance your skin microbiome. The team's vision is to enable precision skin health using cutting-edge technology and clean, sustainable, and natural ingredients for every person, regardless of skin type. As the company's founder envisioned when she started the company, Parallel Health is changing the approach to skincare altogether, and consumers seem receptive to these cutting-edge solutions.
Currently, there are over 3,000 people on the company's waitlist, and more are still joining. The expert team at Parallel Health has been working around the clock to ensure these people get the best precision skin health solutions when they launch. Parallel Health has the most extensive data set in the world on the skin microbiome using whole genome sequencing, and the team intends to continue to be at the forefront of change. Parallel Health has received multiple awards for its efforts, including Fast Company's World Changing Idea in 2022.
The skin care industry is traditionally considered a woman's domain. However, Parallel Health intends to break that stereotype. Research conducted by the team shows that, on average, men spend over $2,900 per year on skincare products, so they need quality products just like women do. The company has already made huge strides by bringing a diverse set of investors on board and garnering support from them. Investors from biotech to consumer health have embraced Parallel Health's vision and are now working to bring it to life. With stakeholders from all parts of the industry, more consumers will soon live their best lives with blemish-free skin.
Parallel Health's CEO believes a sustainable skin care solution is long overdue, and there has never been a better time to help consumers save thousands of dollars they spend on ineffective products. The company offers more than just a product; it offers its clients exclusive access to its skincare community, clinical guidance, and personalized product and prescriptions. Parallel's mission is to empower the customer and equip them with skincare knowledge that helps them avoid trial-and-terror skin care methods. And, unlike most premium skin care products on the market today, Parallel Health's science-backed solutions are precise and effective.
As the skin care industry evolves, Parallel Health is ready to tackle existing and emergent issues. "We want to be as innovative as Tesla, as elegant as Aesop, as ethically sound as Patagonia, and as successful as Amazon, all the while having clinical efficacy," says the CEO. "Ultimately, we want to change the way people approach their skin health."
