Skin Actives Scientific LLC

Abstract

At Skin Actives we make topical products and ingredients for skin and hair. Unlike our competitors we use scientifically proven ingredients that effectively leverage the body's own defense and repair systems. We have developed a line of topical non-prescription products to help patients taking anti-fungal medicines for diseases like Valley Fever maintain skin and hair health during treatment. We will seek to expand our product offering to include patients being treated with other types of medications.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Patients undergoing treatments such an anti-fungal medication that negatively impact the health of their skin and hair.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

Patients undergoing treatment for diseases like Valley Fever do not have access to products made specifically to reverse damage for the medication they are taking. Patients suffer harm to their skin and hair that negatively impacts their self image and may prevent compliance with treatment.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

The market we are looking to access has strong social bonds, if we demonstrate effectiveness of the product we are confident that we can significantly reduce the investments we need to make in terms of marketing that would be the normal impediment to launching a new line of topical products.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

We are very experienced in development and manufacturing of these types of products. The products are currently undergoing trials in a partnership with the University of Arizona.
