Why Cutanea

Current Dermatology Landscape

Cutanea Life Sciences is changing a barren dermatology landscape.

Industry Consolidation

As dedicated corporations continue to disappear, dermatologic partners need reliable, stable, and long-term relationships.


In 2010, there were 21 companies dedicated to dermatology.[1]

In 2015, this has been drastically reduced to thirteen. [2]


Fewer Options

Medical providers should expect more topical options to treat their patients’ symptoms.

One out of ten drugs reach commercialization from the preclinical stage [3].

Out of 32 FDA-approved NDA drugs for dermatology in the past 5 years, only 9 were in a topical form [4].

Increasing Customer Requirements

The demand for dermatology services is increasing, giving pressure to more efficient dermatological practices.


The number of dermatologists is decreasing. [5]

The population and their dermatological needs are steadily increasing. [6] [7]

A tipping scale representing how there are less dermatogists as the amount of people who need dermatology grows.
Cutanea is changing the way you think about a valued dermatology partner.
We commit ourselves to dermatology by focusing on underserved patient needs.
Cutanea can help optimize available practice time through our dermatologic products and services.
