Skin DNA


A simple saliva sample is taken for testing and your DNA results are used to scientifically formulate a personalised guide that allows you to advance way beyond any “one size fits all” suggestion – using the RIGHT skin care ingredients targeted to your OWN Genetic Blue Print. SkinDNA is a revolutionary DNA laboratory test that examines 16 genetic markers (unique to you) in five categories that are proven to be linked with skin aging.

Frequently asked questions:

Q:I follow advice from skin professionals, magazines and news reports. Do I really need to take a SkinDNA™ Test?

A: Yes, The skin health insights from your DNA test can point you toward the prevention measures most suited to you. Even if you followed everybody’s advice to the letter, no-one is able to accurately predict how your skin will age just by looking at you.
If you’re overwhelmed with contradicting advice about what’s best for your skin; if you need motivation to maintain the long term health and quality of your skin; or if you just find it easier and more realistic to focus on areas where your skin is genetically weaker, then the SkinDNA ™ is the answer.
SkinDNA ™ presents you with the most accurate information based on what your DNA tells us. By gaining insight into your DNA, you can determine your skin’s genetic risks and take the right preventative steps to improve your skin’s future.

Q: Why shouldn’t I just use as many products as possible to cover everything?

A: Although you could purchase and use a wide variety of skincare products, most skin care professionals would agree that this is neither economical, nor practical. By understanding your skin’s predispositions – from a DNA perspective – we are able to identify the right things you should be using an individualised skincare program specifically for you!
This targeted approach (rather than a shotgun, or one-size fits- all skincare approach) ultimately helps save you time, money and more importantly focuses your skincare regimen on key areas that are important to your individual skin’s physiology.

Q: Are the products that exist today able to tackle each of the five end points?

A: Absolutely, We’re fortunate enough today, in that the science of skincare has progressed so far we had no problems finding ingredients capable of slowing down Collagen Breakdown, Sun Damage, Oxidation, Glycation and Inflammation. It’s just a matter of knowing which ingredients are best suited for each individual’s gene type to help tackle their skin aging problems.
This is where the SkinDNA ™ Genetic Test and The Beauty Base can assist you with the right products, for example O Cosmedics.
