“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:
* Overview of the brand
