The Biggest Acne Breakthrough in 40 Years.
And We Have Proof.

We ran a randomized controlled trial to determine the benefits of topically applied phage on the acne microbiome.

Controlled Trial

We Asked Ourselves:
01. Is our approach safer than harsh acne products?
02. Do phages kill the acne bacteria?
03. Did reduced acne bacteria lead to clearer skin?
04. Did we increase microbiome diversity?

01. Are Phages safe?

The Results

Phages had no side effects. None. Zero. 

No redness, no dryness, no irritation. No birth defects*. No liver damage*. No risk of depression and suicide*.

*Yes, these are real side effects of acne medication 

What this means

Other harsh products keep damaging your skin until you can’t take it anymore. Then all you’re left with is yet another relapse, with nothing but dull lifeless skin to show for all your effort.

Phyla is designed to be used everyday for months and years. Because you have to deal with acne for months and years. 

02. Do Phages kill acne bacteria?

The Results

The phages significantly reduced acne bacteria on the skin (p < 0.05), with reduction rates up to 90%.

What does placebo meanA placebo is an inactive substance that looks like the treatment being tested. Comparing results from the two groups suggests whether changes in the test group result from the treatment or occur by chance.
What this means

The phage was gently and effectively removing the acne bacteria, without hurting the good bacteria on your skin.

This shows that the phage is getting to the root cause of acne, without causing collateral damage to the microbiome.

03. Did reduced acne bacteria lead to clear skin?

The Results

The week 8 results for the phage group showed a significant clearing of the skin (p = 0.0012) compared to the baseline.

What this means

The Phyla system led to clearer skin in just 8 weeks. This is linked to the specific reduction in acne bacteria, and shows how this breakthrough approach targets only the root cause of acne and gets effective results without damaging your skin.

04. Does Phyla improve microbiome diversity?

The Results

We found an incredible increase in microbiome diversity for almost all Phyla users. In comparison, microbiome diversity decreased for almost all placebo users.

What this means

Microbiome diversity is important for long-term skin health. Acne skin has less diversity than healthy skin, and communities with high microbiome diversity have no recorded instances of acne - ever*.

We’re showing that we can stop C. acnes overgrowth and boost diversity, to give you clear skin for life. A life without irritation, skin damage or relapses.

Microbiome diversity is key to healthy skin

Users that used The Phyla System treatment for 8-weeks, had a significant increase in their microbiome diversity.

Your microbiome is the ecosystem of bacteria on the surface of your skin. It fights to protect you from pathogens that could affect your skin, and overall health. We know that people with acne have a less diverse skin microbiome because of overgrowth of C. acnes. 

The Phyla System targets C. acnes without killing the good bacteria that helps increase the diversity of your skin microbiome. Results? Longer term healthy skin.
