The fastest growing natural cosmetics brand from Finland

3. Uute Scientific
Life without immune-mediated diseases
Urbanization has led more and more of us away from nature and its beneficial microbes. We are not getting our daily dose of microbes in urban environments – that’s why people are now more susceptible to autoimmune diseases such as asthma, allergies, and type 1 diabetes. Uute Scientific has found a solution to bring beneficial microbes to urban consumer goods.
Uute Scientific Oy’s vision:
Our vision is a life without immune-mediated diseases
Uute Scientific manufactures and sells a scientifically proven microbe extract that stimulates and supports the immune system. By adding their extract to everyday products, a healthy dose of nature can be brought into everyday life – even when it is not otherwise possible in an urban environment. In practice, diverse microbial exposure means daily contact with nature, which has well-established health benefits.
Uute Scientific Oy’s mission:
We are dedicated to life without immune-mediated diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, allergies and asthma.
Studies have shown that multiple microbial exposure protects humans and animals from autoimmune diseases and ailments. However, the prevalence of immune-mediated diseases in the population has been growing globally. Uute Scientific’s Reconnecting Nature™ microbe extract is an amazing innovation that can provide your daily dose! Read more on their website: https://www.uutescientific.com/
Right now it is available in cosmetics products for people and pets. Later also as a textile, edible, drinkable and medical device.
