Unlocking the skin microbiome for optimal health and radiance.

A parallel world lives amongst us:
the microbial world.

There are trillions upon trillions of bacteria, fungi, mites, and other microbes that live on and all around us. The microbes that inhabit any particular part of our bodies is called a microbiome.

A healthy microbiome can protect us from pathogens and germs; it can even produce beneficial vitamins.

You're unique.
So is your skin microbiome.

At Parallel, we believe all microbiomes are important. Our focus is the skin microbiome. We help you unlock the power of your skin microbiome so that you can be empowered to make the right decisions for you, when it comes to skin and body care.

Based on your skin microbiome sequencing data, we provide personalized, targeted microbial-based skin and body care products for optimal skin health, clarity, and anti-aging benefits.

Announcing: Partnership with Illumina

Launching a company is hard. Certainly a few factors like cutting-edge technology, a special insight, funding, and a brilliant team can help. But, at the end of the day, I’ve experienced that it’s not easy; founders have to be in the trenches, getting our hands dirty and investing our heart and energy into building something special -- day by day, brick by brick. 


Your skin microbiome

You and your special combination of traits is like a snapshot of a swirling human kaleidoscope; we’re each a variation on a theme. Over time, we learn more about ourselves and our own intricate, colorful snapshot. The more information we gather, the more likely we can make good decisions, which can ultimately help us live better lives. 


Phages, your skincare superhero

The microbial world lives in parallel with us everywhere we go, and beyond. You can find microbes throughout the water cycle: from aquifers to oceans and lakes to clouds to drinking water. You can find them throughout the geological cycle: at hydrothermal vents and pools in Yosemite and Iceland, black smokers in the Atlantic Ocean, and carpeting the frozen heights of the Alps, the Rockies, and the Himalayas.
