Founded on Breakthrough mRNA Research

BEMY is a science-driven and technology-empowered cosmeceuticals company headquartered in Houston, Texas. The company, founded by PhD-level scientists and entrepreneurs with significant expertise in the design and application of cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, specializes in small molecules and messenger RNA (mRNA), as well as proprietary cosmetic base formulations. Enabled by patented technology, our scientists have engineered a new and highly innovative platform in skin rejuvenation.

What this video shows us is that cells can be transfected with much higher efficiency using mRNA.  BEMY is able to grow and treat the customer’s cells safely in a lab at a much greater ability than relying on DNA-based cell transfection.  

Data-Driven Analysis

Skin Cells (fibroblasts) manufacture the proteins tasked with keeping the skin looking young. BEMY has the ability to optimize the quality and concentration of these proteins by using our patented mRNA technology to ramp up protein production. What’s more, the specific types of proteins targeted can be individualized based on specific needs of that customer’s own skin.

Meet Our Team

By way of serendipitous events, the idea of combining proven RNA technology with personalized skin cream became a formal business venture in 2016. BEMY sought to become the first and only company in the world to use RNA reprogramming technologies for rejuvenating adult human skin cells and to use youthful growth factors from these cells for skin care. Through harmonious expertise in business and science, the founders jumped on the opportunity to address an important and unmet gap in the cosmetics industry.
