Teleost Biopharmaceutical was incorporated in March 2014, as an Arizona C corporation. Teleost has offices in Tucson, AZ, and Boulder CO, and its fiscal year is the calendar year.

Mission Statement:

Teleost Biopharmaceuticals will help people protect themselves from sun damage by stimulating melanin production in the body by a method not triggered by the sun’s UV rays.

Company Goals:

Imagine having the protection and tanning effect of sunbathing with suntan lotion or sprays for a full month, even if you don’t go out in the sun! Our primary goal is to enable people to produce melanin from within, to manufacture their own photo-protective melanin, as prevention against skin maladies.
