DERMALA, Inc., a consumer dermatology company developing novel, personalized, microbiome-based solutions for a variety of skin conditions, announced today the issuance of the U.S. Patent No. 11,103,443 – COMPOSITIONS AND METHODS FOR PREVENTING, SLOWING, AND REVERSING SKIN AGING. This patent covers using the human microbiome to slow down the skin aging process.
Aging will inevitably result in changes in the skin. Wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity, skin sagging, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation are natural parts of aging. As we age, our skin and gut microbiomes change as well. Maintaining a balanced microbiome plays a critical role in achieving and retaining healthy, glowing, and radiant skin.
DERMALA’s patented technology uses novel microbiome formulations and delivery methods to restore biologically “younger” skin and gut microbiomes in older adults. This includes transplanting “younger” skin and gut microbiomes or their biosynthetic equivalents and components including prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics to older skin. The result is a rebalanced microbiome, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin hydration, increased ceramide and collagen production, reduced inflammation, improved skin barrier function and skin elasticity, and a healthier, younger-looking, radiant complexion.
Skin aging is associated with changes in skin and gut microbial communities, said Lada Rasochova, Ph.D., MBA, Founder/CEO of DERMALA and the patent inventor. Differences between younger and older microbiomes can be striking. Optimizing the microbiome composition by transplanting biologically younger microbiome components onto an aging skin to slow down aging is a novel concept that is poised to revolutionize the skincare industry.
This patent is a part of an extensive DERMALA’s intellectual property portfolio that covers using the skin and gut microbiomes and data analytics to treat various skin diseases and conditions including acne, eczema, and skin aging.
