From Paris to San Francisco.

"After suffering from a toxic shock syndrome at 18, my skin was left very sensitive. I’ve dedicated my career studying skin science between Paris and San Francisco to finding and understanding the missing link - the microbiome. 

We are creating a movement to help everyone feel at peace with their skin. The more intentional we are with what we use and the more we listen to our inner biology, the healthier we will be. 

Now is the time to join together to raise awareness, standards and knowledge of our skin health.”


Dr. Elsa Jungman has a Ph.D. in Skin Pharmacology and began her career working in R&D for L’Oréal in Paris.

Dr. Elsa’s passion for researching began while contributing to  peer reviewed journals at age 25 and has continued as she’s worked with renowned dermatologists and leading brands all over the world. In 2015 she moved to San Francisco where she learned about the skin microbiome and its importance for skin health.

She made it her mission to be an advocate and resource for promoting a healthy skin ecosystem. She worked towards that vision by becoming a mentor for biotech startups and STEM students as well as an expert for the Clean Beauty Council at Credo Beauty.
