One couple’s problem – Shared by many
Miiskin was founded by Jon, who needed a better way to track the moles on his partner Rikke’s back. Jon was told by the doctor that current best practice was using pen and paper. He couldn’t help thinking that photos of the moles could simplify and improve this process.
100,000 downloads and hundreds of positive messages from happy users show that this is a concern many are looking to solve.
