Science behind your formula
Extensive scientific research is what all of our products are based on. We also rely greatly on our team of dermatologists and cosmetic chemists who constantly put the science in context and come up with user-friendly textures and irritation-free solutions.

Let us tell you more about how we create our skincare.

The Test
That is the question you might have asked yourself when letting us know how many hours of sleep you get or are you a frequent tanner. In fact, yes, we do. You lifestyle and habits affect your skin (say, if you tan a lot, we might need to add more photoprotectants to your mix). Our specialists need to see the whole picture to create a solution that will be truly tailored to you — not just your skin type.
Do we need to know all that?
Scrapings and other types of invasive diagnostic methods are needed in rare cases when it comes to serious skin diseases. Our dermatologists are trained to identify features of such conditions on photos in order to immediately recommend in-person visit to a doctor before we proceed with any skincare formulations.
Why no bloodwork or skin scraping?
The Analysis
Facilitated by AI computer vision techniques and verified by a dermatologist.
Affordable
Automated AI-first analysis allows the personalization process to be cost-effective. You can get a personalized product for a price of a regular pharmacy or department store brand.
Proof checked
As we all know, algorithms can sometimes be far from optimal. That is why your results and computer vision analysis are always checked by a dermatologist. Sometimes at this stage the formula will be corrected: in that case our specialist will contact you and let you know what — and why — has been changed.
Dynamic
As your skin changes, you can always contact Openface specialists or simple take a new test altogether. You will get an updated report and new formula recipe to help you move forward in your skin journey.

How AI-compter vision techniques work?
"We use element models (acne, pigmentation marks etc.) created via ImageNet pre-training and markups made by real dermatologists. We also segment the face using a custom BiSeNet model. The predictions from both models are then combined to identify problem areas on the face. Our current acne detection results are superior in mean accuracy (mAP) to both our own earlier designs using less powerful models and other published techniques. Feedback from dermatologists and our clients allows us to constantly evaluate the accuracy of our models and find examples that help them learn faster. We are currently working on further improving the detection accuracy by applying image augmentations. The more customers use our services and provide feedback, the more accurate our algorithms become in determining skin type and recommending the right care.".

Product
blocks
We thoroughly check your questionnaire answers and pictures. Sometimes we might ask to provide more closeups of affected areas. The process is very similar to what you would expect in a derm’s office — but in the comfort of your home.
Our analysis
The first thing you get from us is in fact absolutely free. Your personal skin report contains a summary of your skin type and condition and skincare recommendations that will help you reach your skin goals. We develop our recommendations from international treatment guidelines like AAD.
Your report
You get your customised serum along with a booklet where every single ingredient is explained. Your skincare journey starts here — and we are always by your side.
