A $17-an-ounce skin gel promising to retexture the outer layer of skin to physically turn back time has attracted some major attention from a surprising source: the Central Intelligence Agency.
In-Q-Tel, the venture capital arm of the CIA, has provided funding to Skincential Sciences and its patented skin-resurfacing technology, according to the Intercept. That technology, found in the Clearista product line, removes a thin epidermis to reveal unique biomarkers that can be used for diagnostic tests, including DNA collection.
“Our patented and clinically proven formula enables increased hydration and resurfacing upon application. You can expect a reduction in the appearance of unsightly blemishes, roughness, and unevenness to reveal smoother, younger skin,” notes the website for Clearista, which calls the product “your beauty BFF in a bottle.” It adds, “The advanced formulation of Clearista is a complete skin re-texturizing cosmetic solution, which uses advanced biotechnology to specifically target problems at the skin’s surface. Clearista enables lasting benefits with results often thought to be achievable only with lasers, dermabrasion, and chemical peels.”
