Epicutis, Skin Reengineered with Total Transparency

Posted By American Med Spa Association, Wednesday, December 22, 2021

Epicutis is a new medical-grade luxury skincare brand that uses non-toxic, safe, and clean ingredients that are disclosed with total transparency. The brand was created by the team of scientists at Signum Biosciences, a well-respected biopharmaceutical company led by Dr. Jeffry Stock at Princeton University. After supplying innovative ingredients to the skincare industry for several decades, the company decided to launch its own skincare line using compounds and botanical extracts it developed that are mimetics of molecules crucial to cellular regulation and signaling in the body. Signum Biosciences brought in the expertise of formulator Masanori Tamura in Japan, where skincare is at the forefront of innovation, to work with Dr. Jeffry Stock, Professor of Molecular Biology at Princeton University.
