The BioArte

Innovation Partner

The BioArte, founded in 2020 by Manuele Biazzo and Christian Duchow, has created a bridge between technology and production in the field of the microbiome. The company’s most recent breakthrough led to the creation of a technology that has allowed it to dive into an even deeper analysis of the microbiota, which led to the innovative SkinDuo product.

The BioArte began by studying the human gut microbiota and has now developed a one-of-a-kind cosmetic product and others soon to come. SkinDuo directly targets the relationship of the skin-gut axis by using living bacteria and helps restore the skin’s natural barrier.
