New start-up HelloAva aims to make skincare more accessible and affordable for all through the employment of skincare chat bots. After discovering the harmful toxins that are loaded into basic skincare products, co-founder and CEO, Siqi Mou sought to find a solution to combat the lack of knowledge that surrounds this industry.
Due to high costs, most people are unlikely to consult with a dermatologist unless it's a medical emergency. This results in a lack of consideration to what chemicals consumers are washing their face with, and how those chemicals may affect their complexion.
HelloAva connects users with skincare chat bots, who ask a series of personalized questions, answer questions and make product recommendations based on the users' unique results. The chat bots will also direct the users to where they can purchase the natural products, better connecting the consumer with the right product in a more efficient and cost-effective manner.
