REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Solomomo, inventors of the Solomomo™ Skin Wand, which provides dermatologist-like precision and evaluation to the home skincare enthusiast, unveiled its marketing and development agreement with Biometrix, Inc., a branded CRO (Contract Research Organization) and the global leader in clinical and consumer research. The partnership between the two companies will advance Solomomo’s current version of its Skin Wand for the professional medical and home markets.
“Our partnership with Biometrix, and its market dominance in the medical and beauty communities, accelerates our ability to put a Skin Wand in every bathroom, spa, medi-spa, and dermatologist office around the world,” said co-Chief Executive Officer Eric Engstrom. “Solomomo will now have broader access into both leading-edge skincare research and the professional market.”
Biometrix can now exclusively provide its clients with a professional version of the Solomomo Skin Wand, which can be taken home by participants during new product trials and consumers for benchmarking studies. “I have always believed that longitudinal data was the future of skin care. That future has finally arrived,” said Biometrix Chief Executive Officer Dr. John Ademola, Ph.D. “With Solomomo, Biometrix can help our industry and beauty lab clients develop designer treatments that will revolutionize skin care at home and in the spa.”
