This week’s episode is brought to you in partnership with Droplette.

What if the most effective skin treatment never touched your fingertips at all? In this week’s episode, we sit down with MIT-trained inventors, Madhavi Gavini and Rathi Srinivas, to learn the fascinating backstory behind the “Nespresso” of skincare devices, Droplette.

The handheld, at-home micro-infusing skincare device (picture a computer mouse!) has made the leap from medical prototype to topshelf must-have. The real jawdropper? It’s designed to deliver skincare into, not just onto, your skin, and it claims to help skincare ingredients penetrate 20x deeper than slather-on creams.

What you'll discover in this episode:

> How the company’s co-founders went from pediatric and Covid research to the world of skincare, starting in their kitchens
> How the NASA-backed device works, with tips on working it into your existing routine
> How the ground-breaking, micro-infusing technology could be used to help revolutionize medical therapeutics in future
> How Droplette differs from microneedling’s delivery approach, and why the device can even be used in conjunction with “micro-coring”
> The cleanser and sunscreen brands these women in STEM trust to round out their own routines
