Introducing CosMe, your personalised skincare assistant

We are thrilled to announce the launch of CosMe, a revolutionary new app developed in collaboration with the Skin Health Institute. CosMe is set to transform the way patients and clinicians approach skincare by providing evidence-based recommendations that empower individuals to take control of their skin health. 

CosMe is the ultimate skincare companion, tailor-made by dermatologists to cater to patient’s unique needs. With CosMe, users will discover products that are free from high-risk ingredients, improving quality of life for those combating contact dermatitis, and, in some cases, saving costs by avoiding inappropriate products.  

CosMe is set to bridge the gap between clinicians and patients. Healthcare professionals will have access to a platform that assists in recommending the right products for patient needs. Patients will leave consults with invaluable knowledge to help them navigate the cosmeceutical landscape, while clinicians will experience improved clinical efficiency in the diagnosis and management of contact dermatitis.  

The Skin Health Institute, renowned for its expertise in patch testing, has joined forces with CosMe to transform contact dermatitis management. As part of our commitment to being a centre of excellence in skin health, we’re proud to promote CosMe to all future contact dermatitis patients.  

Approximately 1 in 5 Australians are affected by contact dermatitis, by leveraging CosMe’s extensive database of over 5,000 Australian products, users can easily search, filter, and find a skincare match. Ingredients are demystified, allergens are highlighted, and cross-reactions are explained. Reacting to sunscreen, makeup, or lip balm will soon be a thing of the past. 

Download the CosMe app now to see start your personalised skincare journey. As the app is still in its infancy, the creators’ welcome feedback and suggestions, so contact [email protected] with any improvements.  

CosMe is available for download on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Step into the future of skincare management with CosMe – your trusted skincare companion. 

Psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin condition, affects millions of individuals worldwide, including a significant number of Australians. This August, during Psoriasis Awareness Month, we aim to shed light on this prevalent condition, raise awareness, and emphasise the importance of empathy and support for those living with psoriasis.

In Australia, psoriasis is estimated to impact approximately 2-3% of the population, making it a relatively common dermatological concern. Despite its prevalence, psoriasis remains widely misunderstood, leading to misconceptions and stigmatisation among patients.

At the Skin Health Institute, we have committed our support to Psoriasis Awareness Month with a mission to create empathy and awareness for people with psoriasis and promote a better understanding of this condition. We recognise that beyond medical treatment, patients need compassionate support and understanding from their communities. Through various initiatives, we strive to foster an environment of compassion and knowledge, allowing patients to feel heard and supported as they learn to manage their condition.

Our dedication to enhancing dermatological care extends to providing the latest treatment options. Our Advanced Targeted Therapies Clinic offers cutting-edge therapies that specifically address psoriasis, tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Our expert dermatologists work closely with patients to develop personalised treatment plans, empowering them to manage their condition effectively and improve their quality of life.

Education is key to unlocking progress in dermatology, so through our suite of educational resources, we seek to help health professionals to stay at the forefront of their clinical practice. Our Masterclasses, GP Workshops, Advanced Therapeutics Education Portal, and Spot Diagnosis podcast episodes provide valuable insights and updates on psoriasis management and treatment options.

As part of our commitment to advancing psoriasis research, we are actively conducting clinical trials focused on nail and body psoriasis. These trials play a crucial role in uncovering innovative treatments and improving outcomes for people with psoriasis. By participating in our clinical trials, individuals not only contribute to medical advancements but also have the opportunity to access potential breakthrough therapies.

During Psoriasis Awareness Month and beyond, we stay dedicated in the pursuit of improving patient outcomes, expanding healthcare professional knowledge and advancing treatment options.
