It has been an exciting few months since we first revealed our project to the public. Progress is being made with EpigenCare’s skincare test and product ingredient matching algorithm and we are continuing to refine the collection method and data analysis pipeline towards commercialization. Lately there has been significant media attention to our technology, with feature mentions in a wide array of industry and consumer publications including Cosmetics Business and Refinery29. We also won a skincare technology competition hosted by Johnson & Johnson Innovation, giving us $25,000 seed money and accelerator space at JLABS in New York City. …

We just officially launched the sale of our EPIC tokens — a security token offering that includes revenue sharing rights and, more notably, an option to convert to equity ownership.

A few days ago we revealed our project to the world through an official press release: a personalized skincare test based on epigenetics. Like 23andMe, it is a “collect-DNA-at-home-and-mail-it-in” type service. What makes the EpigenCare solution unique is that it is based on epigenetics, not genetics, which looks at active versus inactive genes to best assess the dynamic states of skin as well as environment stimuli that affects them. True personalization. In fact, the most exciting thing about our personal epigenomics test is that it generates actionable results — skincare product recommendations based on the ingredients’ effects on the epigenetic…
