Consumers start their journey on Ori (AskOri.com) – an online service that guides them to select and order their test kit. On receiving their kit, they submit their genetic material in the form of a saliva sample that is returned to Imagene's in-house lab where their DNA is extracted and analysed. Depending on the type of test(s) selected, they receive a personalised report detailing their genetic pre-dispositions to specific traits. Imagene Labs develops tailor-made products for the individual based on their unique genetic make-up to provide health-conscious consumers in the region with personalised genomics guidance on nutrition, fitness, skin care and other wellness topics.

10 Skin Traits in 1 oriSKIN test for exclusive and customized facial serum

OriSKIN tests for 10 key traits relating to skin, including elasticity, predisposition to premature wrinkling, pigmentation and sensitivity. Users of oriSKIN can then order bespoke facial serums which are formulated with natural botanical extracts that pre-emptively address their skin's concerns such as elasticity, pigmentation and hydration. To offer consumers a complete skincare solution, Imagene Labs provides a collection of basic skincare products consisting of Revealing Cleanser Gel (150ml), Rebalancing Toner (150ml), Renewal Jel (50ml) and Reflecting UV Lotion (30ml).

Other than oriSKIN to specially customize for consumer's skincare needs, oriFIT recommendations offer personalised fitness programs with greater accuracy, as well as high performance fitness supplements, based on results of oriFIT report.  Those who take the test of oriVIT can purchase nutritional supplements of specific vitamins and minerals customised to their body's needs and pre-dispositions. The three genetics-based tests accompanied by Imagene Labs' range of customized products and programs all aim to build an all-round and perfect wellness solution from both the inside and outside.

"This is the first time a genomics company is offering a complete, end-to-end wellness solution for consumers in the region. We aim to spearhead this new approach of genomics-based, personalised health and wellness that was previously reserved for clinical and diagnostic applications to cut through wellness myths, and access truly personalised and science-based solutions that address their individual needs. We have identified strong market demand and potential for customised and pre-emptive wellness products as consumers are increasingly seeking the latest in wellness products to make them look, feel and live better." said Dr. Wong Mun Yew, Managing Director of Imagene Labs.
