BEMY Cosmetics Selected for MassChallenge’s 2022 Cohort

BEMY Cosmetics is one of 7 Houston startups chosen for MassChallenge’s 2022 United States cohort of early-stage startups. MassChallenge is the global network for innovators who are working to solve massive challenges.

As a selected startup, BEMY will be eligible for equity-free cash prizes of as much as $1 million. The company will also have access to MassChallenge’s new residency program, allowing the founder teams to travel between the various MassChallenge hubs.

BEMY set out to revolutionize the cosmetic industry through the advancement of rejuvenating adult human cells for mass market-oriented and personalized products. The idea came about when the founders decided to combine proven RNA technology with personalized skin cream. Between expertise and a novel idea, BEMY quickly became the first and only company in the world to use RNA reprogramming technologies for rejuvenating adult human skin cells. 

This has been no easy task, requiring years of experimentation and engineering to develop this solution. From prototypes to patents, the startup has overcome extensive uncertainties. Their technology reprograms adult human skin cells, returning them to a near embryonic elasticity, ensuring the results have all the benefits and none of the ethical risk of embryonic stem cell technologies. The process requires the collection of your own skin cells, from a small and gentle scrape along your skin, before developing a personalized extract capable of rejuvenating your skin.

Are you developing new technology for an existing application? Did you know your development work could be eligible for the R&D Tax Credit and you can receive up to 14% back on your expenses? Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify).
