Our products are designed to address the essential areas of dermatology.

We launched Cassiopea with a deliberate goal in mind: find a new way to treat acne. We are building our company on this foundation, targeting unmet needs and opportunities for Cassiopea to advance the practice of dermatology.



Acne, a chronic inflammatory skin disease, is one of the most common reasons patients visit a dermatologist. The major product classes predominantly used to treat acne have been available for nearly 40 years, and we believe that recent growth in this market has been significantly limited by a lack of innovation in new product development.

AGA is the most common cause of hair loss,4 affecting a large percentage of both men and women. The prescription treatment options are limited, yet there is a growing demand for choices as many patients choose OTC remedies.

AGA is another major contributor to confidence loss that deserves a new treatment. Many patients remain untreated and continue to suffer in silence.

Genital warts are a symptom of the highly contagious sexually transmitted disease, human papillomavirus (HPV). They are spread through direct skin-to-skin contact, often by those who do not develop genital warts and therefore do not know they are infected. Today, topical treatments are common, but many require multiple applications and can be ineffective—recurrence is frequent.

Genital warts can adversely affect sexual health and wellness. Finding effective treatment is imperative.
