Skin Traits Reports
If you've ever wondered why certain skincare routine doesn't work for you, this is the time to find out. Analyse how your genetics influence skin characteristics, such as hydration, elasticity and antioxidant capacity, which play a key role in the skin aging process.
What You'll Discover
You will receive skin-specific insights and personalised recommendations different skin traits related to hydration, elasticity, sensitivity and more.
Eyelid sagging is one of the characteristics of skin ageing. It is a condition whereby the upper or lower eyelids appear baggy due to the loss of skin elasticity and weakening of the muscles that support the eyelids.
Cytokines are proteins produced by the body in response to infection, inflammation or injury. However, if the inflammatory response lasts for a long time, it will bring negative effects by causing inflammatory diseases.
Stretch Mark (Striae distensae)New
Stretch marks occur when the dermis of the skin is suddenly and rapidly stretched, producing long, narrow streaks of lines on the skin. Many factors can influence the development of stretch marks, one of which includes genetics.
Acne happens when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. Did you know that genetics plays a huge role in acne vulgaris?
Find out if you have high antioxidant capacity, that can help you fight free radical damage and can help maintain healthy skin.
Collagen is a type of protein which gives our skin the youthful glow and elasticity that we love. Do you have the genes that affect your rate of collagen breakdown?
Do you have risk of sensitivity towards certain ingredients such as Benzalkonium Chloride and Sodium Hydroxide?
Freckles are caused by the increase in local melanin production after sunlight exposure. Are you at higher risk of developing freckles?
The skin contains approximately 30% water, which contributes to plumpness, elasticity, and resiliency. Do you have the genes associated with high skin hydration?
Our skin changes as we age. The natural aging process normally begins in our mid-20s. Are you more susceptible towards skin aging?
Firmness of our skin is mainly linked to collagen and elastin, discover if you have the genes linked to better skin elasticity.
The proteins in skin most prone to glycation are collagen and elastin. When glycation happens, the collagens and elastins become discolored, weak, and less supple.
Ever wonder if you have high or low tanning ability? This refers to your skin's ability to protect you against ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause skin damage. If your genetics predisposed you to have lesser UV protection, you might need to take prevention steps.
Ever heard of crow's feet? It's the branching wrinkles that appear at the outer corner of our eyes. Are you at higher risk of getting wrinkles?

Genes are the bits of DNA that give our cells their marching orders. They make up who we are at our most basic cellular level, and the billions of cells we are born with play an incredibly important role in our health. Each gene is comprised of multiple combinations of four letters that make up your genetic code - Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Cytosine (C) and Guanine (G). Most genes contain the information required to make protein for your body to develop and function.
A single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is a DNA sequence variation that occurs when a single nucleotide - A, T, C, or G in the genome differs between members of a species or paired chromosomes in an individual. These variants can be potential biological markers, helping researchers to locate genes associated with certain conditions and diseases.
There are many steps that we need to take to ensure that we provide the most accurate reports from your DNA, from checking if your saliva sample contain enough DNA, to processing your DNA for SNPs. The whole process should take about 6-8 weeks once we've received the saliva sample from you.
Our reports comes with easy-to-understand explanation and recommendations, to ensure that you get the best experience and understanding out of your trait reports.
