frequently asked Questions
1. Where and how can I get skinmade products?
Your skinmade skin analysis and products are available from selected skin experts or beauty salons in your area. In order to be able to precisely record your biomarkers and thus your dermatological skin condition, we measure directly on your skin, i. H. you would have to visit us in one of our partner beauty salons in your area. You can find this under "Find a partner studio".
2. What are biomarkers?
Biomarkers are biological characteristics of natural and/or pathological processes in the body.
3. How does skinmade affect my skin?
Your skin is very good at regenerating and caring for itself. It does this best when it is in its natural biological balance; if their skin barrier is intact. With our skin analysis, we can determine whether your skin is in balance or how far away it is from it. Our goal is to help your skin regain its natural biological balance and keep it there with our skin analysis & biomarker measurement and the corresponding personalized system care from skinmade. So we're training your skin to take care of itself.
4. Your skin analysis
What is measured?
We first measure the two most important biomarkers of your skin, the fat (sebumetry) and the moisture content (corneometry). In addition, we can record biomarkers such as collagen, elastin, cytokines and porphyrins with our hyperspectral measurement.
Where is the measurement made?
We measure directly on your skin, in three different places: on the forehead (T-zone), the cheek (U-zone) and at the corner of the mouth. This is how we record all the different areas of your face.
How do you measure?
We measure directly on your skin with a scientifically and dermatologically validated hyperspectral measuring device. The analysis is non-invasive, which means that the hyperspectral measuring device does not penetrate your skin, but is only held lightly on your skin's surface. During the skin analysis, you will be supported by a skinmade expert. She or he will be available to answer any questions you may have.
When will measurements be taken?
Your skin's biomarkers are measured before every production of your facial care products. The condition of your skin changes as a result of using the personalized system care products and, of course, as a result of your lifestyle (e.g. sleeping habits and diet). The change of seasons and different weather conditions can also affect your skin condition. The renewed analysis ensures that your products are always optimally tailored to your changed skin condition.
How long does the analysis take?
Each biomarker is measured a total of three times on each side of the face in order to obtain a precise measurement result. Overall, the measurement takes about three to five minutes.
Can I see the measurement results?
Yes, you can see the values of your measured biomarkers and your current dermatological skin condition. In addition, your skinmade expert will show and explain to you what these values mean and how far away you are from your natural biological balance. As soon as you use skinmade products and come to a follow-up measurement, we compare the values and see how your skin condition has developed.
5. Your recipe
How is the formula of your cream calculated?
Our knowledge of highly effective, personalized formulations that can sustainably improve the individual skin condition comes from research results at the Fraunhofer Institute and at Dermatest.Our research work has shown us which personalized ingredients and concentrations we can use to positively influence a specific skin condition. The ingredients and concentrations are calculated to suit your current skin condition and are freshly produced.
What ingredients are used?
Even individual recipes are only as good as the quality of the individual ingredients. That is why we only use natural, skin-identical and certified raw materials of the highest quality for our products. This is how we ensure the high bioavailability of our ingredients. We are convinced that you should only give your skin what it really needs and not damage and burden it with unnecessary ingredients. The exact ingredients that go into a cream vary from person to person and from measurement to measurement. After your skin analysis, i.e. before the cream is even produced, you can of course see which ingredients have been calculated for you.
Can ingredients be selected by yourself?
Since the composition of the ingredients and their concentrations depend on the objective skin analysis and must correspond precisely to the recipe calculation by our artificial intelligence, these are fixed and cannot be selected individually. This is the only way to put together an effective formula that is precisely tailored to your skin condition.
What can you choose yourself?
You can decide for yourself how your cream should smell. You can also opt for a fragrance-free cream here. You can also choose how you want your cream to feel. It can either be a little more solid and rich or a little lighter and more fluid.
7. Production of your facial care
Where do you produce?
After your skin analysis, your facial care products will be freshly made in our own production facility in Stuttgart and sent to your home. After only 2 days they are there!
How long does production take?
Your facial care will be sent to you in just 2 days after your analysis. We produce freshly in Stuttgart every time according to your skin analysis. This fast production and delivery is made possible by our patented production process.
8. Application of your cream
Has the cream been tested?
Our products have been dermatologically tested by an independent research institute.
How is the cream used?
It is best to apply your face cream to your previously cleansed face in the morning and evening. Of course, you can also use the cream more frequently if necessary.
How long is the cream applied?
Apply your cream until the jar is empty. This usually takes about six to eight weeks. As soon as your cream is used up, we measure again, compare the values from the previous analysis, calculate a new recipe and produce it fresh for you again. If you don't make it to a skin analysis, you can easily reorder your current formulation by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
9. Personalized system maintenance by skinmade
What does my personalized system maintenance include?
The personalized care system from skinmade includes the following products: your personalized clean & care oil for thorough/optimal cleansing of the face, a serum (or several serums) - tailored to your specific skin problem - the sun protection oil protect & care sun oil and your personalized face cream for morning and evening.
10.What does 2-level biomarker treatment mean?
The personalized system care from skinmade is based on a 2-level treatment. Level 1 - an intact skin barrier - forms the dermatological basis for solving individual skin problems. With regular use of the individual face cream and the personalized clean & care oils, the biomarkers of moisture and fat content are regulated and brought into balance: the skin can regenerate and optimally fulfill all of its functions. The use of protect & care sun oil also protects the skin from UV rays and also nourishes, repairs and regenerates the skin cells all year round. Level 2 - cosmetic - is about solving individual skin problems with the help of specific problem-solving serums that treat the cause of the skin problems.
11. Should I use the protect & care sun oil all year round?
Our Dr. Lars Rüther says: "It is extremely important to protect yourself from UV radiation even when the sky is overcast." The protect & care sun oil from skinmade protects against UVA and UVB radiation all year round. In addition, it nourishes, regenerates and repairs the skin cells thanks to valuable antioxidants, nutrient donors and much more
12. For which skin type is the clean & care oil suitable?
The personalized clean & care oil is suitable for all skin types because it gently cleanses the skin (without surfactants) with a care effect and contains only non-comedogenic oils. It is a common misconception that cleansing oils are not suitable for blemished and oily skin. The clean & care oil consists of jojoba, castor and olive oil and removes excess sebum, dirt, deposits, make-up and other harmful substances (like dissolves like) without disturbing the natural skin barrier; instead, it is regenerated and repaired.
