Are they saying that they can mix a cream that will change/supplement your DNA structure? If so, I want stock in the company.
DNA is DNA is DNA. It is what it is and "ain't" what it "ain't". No matter what they "mix" up for you, it won't change the structure of your DNA over time and it WON'T add anything to your DNA structure that will be retained--'taint possible, as my old granny would have said. If they claim that by mixing in "stuff" that your are missing in your DNA, then they are trying to supplement DNA. They would win a Noble prize for that kind of thing.
That's pretty crazy, are they saying they can tell you what type of skin you have based on your DNA sample ? I don't think we understand DNA that well yet. I don't think a scientist could even tell you if your eyes are blue, brown, or green based on a DNA sample.
So, what will your DNA tell them? Whatever it is, it won't tell them anything that will help you to "change" your skin. MAYBE they could tell you that you have oily skin (for example, but I doubt it). Well, I'm guessing if you have oily skin, you already know that.
There is NOTHING than can tell you by having your DNA that will help your skin, I promise. My brother-in-law is a molecular biologist and he laughed out loud when we talked after I sent him the link. He works with DNA every day.
I bet they take the DNA sample, toss it without doing a thing to it, and everyone gets the same exact cream. How would you know if they did or didn't formulate you a cream based on your DNA (even if it would help to have your DNA)? I had to give a DNA sample to be tested for BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, that test cost $3500 and took weeks to get the results. But, they were looking for a specific thing and knew what to look for.
It's a gimmick. It's a slick gimmick for the unsuspecting or those who easily fall prey (as I once did) to "purported" miracle creams, lotions and potions.
A good dermatologist is likely to help you more than this cream or try some of the DIY websites where you can mix up or buy ready made, fresh, potent products that will likely give you the best results of all. Your money will be much better spent, either way.
