…you’re listening to a new Upgrade Spotlight series based on what you told me you wanted to hear on this podcast. On one Friday each month, these shorter episodes will feature guests who’ll get right into useful information in a Q&A style.
You’ll find out how to improve your energy and upgrade your performance. You’ll also get the latest knowledge about powerful tools and technologies that allow you to change your biology and the environment around you.
Introducing OneSkin! During this Upgrade Spotlight, you’ll learn about new products designed to target skin aging at the molecular level and promote skin and body health. You’ll also find out the science behind OneSkin’s formulas and why they are considered “daily topical supplements.” They can help you maintain functional and resilient skin as you age.
OneSkin topical supplements are powered by a proprietary peptide: OS-01, which decreases the accumulation of aged/senescent (zombie) cells in the skin. By targeting the major driver of skin aging, OS-01 has been scientifically proven to:
• Repair cellular damage, including UV damage
• Increase epidermal thickness
• Improve barrier function
• Increase the activity of genes associated with collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin production
• Reverse the biological age of skin
“So this peptide has a very interesting profile because it's small enough to penetrate and it's super safe,” explains Carolina Reis Oliveira, Ph.D., scientist, CEO and co-founder of OneSkin. “There is no toxicity, no irritation. We've done all the recommended studies by FDA for personal care products, and, has this beautiful effect of reducing the accumulation of senescent cells, and also reduces the release of inflammatory markers, and increase the production of hyaluronic acid, elastin and collagen. So, in the end, there's a molecule that has all these attributes that's very important for healthy skin, overall.”
Another exciting part of this peptide work includes MolClock, the first skin-specific molecular clock, capable of reliably and accurately determining the biological age of skin. This was created by OneSkin’s team of female PhD-level longevity scientists as part of its research and development platform.
Carolina relocated from Latin America to Silicon Valley in 2016 to co-found OneSkin and lead the development of the company’s disruptive skin rejuvenation technologies. She holds a Ph.D. in Immunology, along with degrees in biochemistry, stem cell biology and tissue engineering.
Her team of co-founders includes three other female scientists with additional expertise in skin regeneration, bioinformatics, genomics, immunology and molecular biology. Among them, they’ve invented numerous patents and have published nearly 100 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals.
This episode explores exciting new information about improving skin health at the molecular level for the long-term. When you do that, your body will be more equipped to defend itself from environmental stressors and aggressors, especially with age.
