We believe that modern skincare must be revolutionized to achieve optimal skin health. And we believe the answer is in the wild, natural world, which includes the surface of your skin.

At Ellis Day Skin Science, we pioneer natural phage-based products that balance the microbiome by eradicating bacteria associated with skin problems and enabling good bacteria to flourish. This natural process addresses skin issues including blemishes and breakouts, redness, inflammation, and dryness.

We use cutting-edge science to leverage nature, creating products that are just as kind and conscientious as they are effective, so that all can feel empowered with balanced, clear, radiant, and resilient skin.

OUR TEAM

Our team is all-female but diverse. We are all passionate about skin-native ingredients and making products that have science-backed claims to help you have the healthiest skin in the safest, most natural way possible.

With the innovation now possible with phage research and technology, we realize the potential to change the world: phage science can save lives, literally. There are vast use cases for phage, but we chose skincare because we believe it has the potential to impact the greatest number of people and change their lives on a daily basis. Everyday we all get up in the morning and look in the mirror. And often, what we see in the mirror affects how we feel about ourselves, about the day, about the world. We thought, if we can create a product that keeps the microbiome balanced, enabling healthy, clear, and resilient skin, then we can play a part in making a person’s life easier, less stressful, and, ultimately, more joyful.

"To rebalance, I love playing with my crazy boxer dog Mabry. Or running Spartan obstacle course races; those definitely keep me grounded…literally."

Nathan Brown, PhD

VP of Science and Development

"Wilderness backpacking is my rebalancing act. One of my favorite moments was catching the sunrise on top of South Sister mountain in the Sisters Wilderness. The night before, I slept at the foot of the mountain and woke up at 1am to start climbing to get to the peak by sunrise. It was well worth it."

"I love running in the wild for a long time and sharing time with my horses... oops, my hubby."

Laura Marinelli, PhD

"Rebalancing often involves spending time with my husband and three little ones. Other times it's experimenting with a new recipe, enjoying a good book, or just taking a quiet moment to breathe deeply and find a moment of calm, which is usually about all I get before I'm needed by a tiny human!"
