When you think of the CIA, the last thing you’re probably thinking about is skin care. Well, the Central Intelligence Agency apparently has taken a strong liking to a particular brand in the industry and they are now investing in it!
CIA Invests In Clearista
I know it sounds so strange, but according to my sources, it’s true. The Central Intelligence Agency has a venture capital arm called In-Q-Tel. This VC invests in various ventures that are science related. The more I think about it, In-Q-Tel investing in Skincential Sciences makes complete sense.
Skincential Sciences is the company behind the Clearista product line. The company has developed and patented a skin resurfacing technology. According to sources, Clearista’s technology has the ability to reveal biomarkers after removing a thin layer of the epidermis. Which can then be used during various diagnostic testing, one of which includes the collection of DNA.
The real question here is why on earth the CIA is so interested in a product of this nature? Perhaps they want to know everything there is to know about the skin altering technology just to stay on top of the company? Or maybe they want to use it to their advantage to better hide individuals through the skin altering process?
The strange thing here is the Skincential Sciences isn’t really all that sure why the CIA is interested either. At least, that’s what I’ve read according to Yahoo Lifestyle. In fact, a statement was released by the CEO of Skincential Sciences and he stated, “If there’s something beneath the surface, that’s not part of our relationship, and I’m not directly aware. They’re interested here in something that can get easy access to biomarkers.”
I do find it rather odd that he doesn’t know why they are interested, but I certainly respect his privacy and assume it’s something that he prefers to not make the public aware of anything.
As for In-Q-Tel and their ventures, they typically spend time focusing on two sectors. Those of which are the communications technologies sector and the physical and biological technologies sector. Anything that’s genetic related, it makes sense that they would want to invest in. After all, they are the obligated to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technological advancement, right?
