The CIA Is Funding Skin Care Products That Collect DNA

Who knew that the CIA was so interested in skincare products? According to this report, the CIA’s venture capital arm has investment in Skincential Sciences, the company behind a non-invasive product that exposes unique biomarkers that can even be used for collecting DNA.

Beyond that, Lebovitz said he was unsure of the intent of the CIA’s use of the technology, but the fund was "specifically interested in the diagnostics, detecting DNA from normal skin." He added, "There’s no better identifier than DNA, and we know we can pull out DNA."
