“Killing the bad bacteria without harming any of the good, unrelated bacteria” that’s Phyla’s biotechnology. In part 1, Yug Varma, Founder and CEO of Phyla, a brand that is bringing unique, innovative, and powerful biotechnology to skincare.

Yug is a scientist, a microbiologist, and a bacterial geneticist. He got his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University and also a postdoc in microbiome research from UCSF. After studying the microbiome for 11 years, he saw a lack of innovation for acne problems despite being common. So, he wanted to fill that white space by bringing his technology to market.

Phyla started as a biotechnology company, heavily investing in basic R&D to develop an acne-solving product. According to him, current solutions kill bad as well as good bacteria.

In the first half, he talked about:

* Gratefulness
* Overview of the brand
* Why he started
* His background
* Approaching investors
* Shift in science

Join Ramon Vela and Yug Varma as they break down the inside story on The Story of a Brand.
