Dr. Lingam sought the help of his friend, Brian Jegasothy, MD who was part of his inner circle (and formerly Chairman, Department of Dermatology, University of Pittsburgh, USA). A research team headed by Dr. Jegasothy was soon formed to fulfill the quest for a skin care product that was non-irritating, non-inflammatory and gentle on infant skin. This research team had a combined experience of over 200 years and consisted of accomplished dermatologists, scientists and physicians.
Dr. Lingam, Dr. Jegasothy and their team had a vision to develop an irritant free skin care line that would tap into mother nature’s own healing power to keep the skin hydrated, well nourished and radiant. This team, guided by Dr. Jegasothy’s scientific research knew something that most skin care lines did not seem to know or care about. Dr. Jegasothy had discovered the relationship between continuous inflammation, disease and aging. They found that, "Continuous inflammation, including sub-clinical inflammation was the root-cause of premature aging and was linked to development of chronic diseases and cancer."
They found that the regular and continuous use of skincare products available in the marketplace resulted in inflammation which would later show up in the form of deadly diseases. This discovery greatly alarmed Dr. Lingam and his team of scientists. The team was then inspired to form Hylunia Skin Care in 1988 to enable people of all ages and skin types to enjoy healthy and beautiful skin throughout their life without compromising their health and safety. And now, 30+ years later, Hylunia Skincare is delivering on that promise!
