DNA profiling allows for tailored Skin Care
28 August 2014
Skin Care products fully tailored to your skin will be available to buy sooner than you think and its all thanks to biotech firms who have found a nifty solution to our Skin Care woes. Research and experimentation has awarded these firms the ability to fully analyse individual cells, to work out how good each persons body is at retaining collagen as they age. The more collagen present in the patients body, the fewer wrinkles they will develop. A test is currently being developed to analyse DNA on the spot by taking a sample of saliva, the DNA data will be transferred to a microchip, which will then determine the amount of collagen present. It is thought that with this information, Skin Care experts will soon be able to give advice as to specific products that are tailored to a patients DNA so what we put on our skin will be exactly what it needs.
