Before launching Sequential, Oliver completed his PhD in a world-leading molecular biology lab, investigating genetic and epigenetic modifications in human disease.

The cosmetic and beauty industry is on the verge of becoming completely personalised – various terms are now entering the category lexicon, from ‘cosmeceuticals’ to ‘dermagenetics’. This is good news for the majority of consumers, who for too long have found that the products they purchase either don’t work as expected or deliver substandard results. Sequential recognises this limitation and has developed the first proprietary face mask that allows a deep characterisation of how an individual's genetics and microbiome affect their skin. Sequential provides a uniquely genetic and environmental approach to personalised skincare.
