Ever hungry for new investment opportunities, VCs are now backing start-ups developing novel dermatology products for both medical and cosmetic conditions. These aren't your typical "derm" companies. Not content to invent new delivery vectors for existing medicines or reformulate them into more patient friendly creams, these fledgling companies are trying to develop new chemical entities based on novel skin biology.
