This week Tee was delighted to welcome Dr. Yug Varma, Ph.D. for an educational look at the causes of acne and how skin microbiome relates to his company's revolutionary new treatment. Dr. Varma has 10+ years of microbiome research experience including an extensive background in bio-organic chemistry, microbiology, and synthetic biology. Dr. Varma received his scientific training at several distinguished academic institutions, including Johns Hopkins University (Ph.D.) and the University of California, San Francisco. His scientific work has been published in many prestigious journals, including Nature.
Dr. Varma’s mission is to change the ways we treat chronic bacterial diseases and he is working tirelessly to achieve this goal with a microbiome-based technology platform. He is the co-founder and CEO of Phyla, the world’s most advanced probiotic acne system. He and his team discovered a probiotic that actually lives on healthy skin and specifically kills the acne-causing bacteria to balance our microbiome. They built Phyla products on this revolutionary breakthrough in skin microbiome research using bio-phages.
Current approaches to acne have not changed much over the decades and are so terribly harsh for the skin. At the same time, other skincare companies take advantage of trending probiotics with dubious products that simply contain dead yogurt bacteria, which are of no use. Phyla products are designed and manufactured with rigorous European quality standards, built on a truly natural probiotic, isolated from healthy skin for healthy skin. They are safe, non-toxic, cruelty-free, vegan, and free of phthalates, parabens, and artificial fragrances.
