2 Stanford Classmates

Bosq is the Modern Man’s skin health science company. We’re the cohort that rages against the dying of the light. We feel young and want to look young throughout our lives. We decided to usher in science and nature to help men achieve better skin health.

Bosq was founded by two Stanford University classmates who saw a big opportunity to encourage men to actively pursue a youthful, healthy appearance to reflect how they feel inside. Shirley Gines has 35 years working with Silicon Valley’s most innovative hi-tech and bio companies; Dorothy Cunningham, M.D., is a board certified dermatologist.

Shirley Gines, CEO

“I've had the great fortune to be part of the unfolding of Silicon Valley's history the last 35 years. In my PR role, I sat on a privileged perch and worked alongside brilliant, creative trailblazers. Following in the Valley’s tradition of innovation, I founded Bosq to develop pioneering, science-proven skin health products for men. I saw a very large unmet need and built a team to create effective solutions. Women are generally more knowledgeable than men when it comes to skin health. In fact, only a third of men in the U.S. have a daily skincare routine vs. 65% of women. But men's interest in skin health is growing fast! As we strive to extend our lifespan --biohackers today proclaim they want to be healthy at 150-200 years old -- don't we want to look youthful as long as we can, at any age? Aesthetics is part of the wellbeing equation. Skin is our largest organ, and the theatre of our life depends on healthy skin."

Dorothy J. Cunningham, M.D., Chief of Product Development

“During my 30+ years as a board certified dermatologist delivering evidence-based, personalized skin care, my patients and I have been disappointed by the failure of antiaging products to meet expectations. This letdown is the result of inflated promises, trendy but useless ingredients, and unappealing products --not to mention unnecessarily complicated, multi-step regimens. It is my mission to address these issues by delivering cost-effective and scientifically validated products with responsibly sourced ingredients that genuinely promote skin health. I am very proud to be a founding member of a company that introduces a combined oral and topical antioxidant-rich solution that will give you the confidence to pursue your best life.”

Our subscription-based Bosq Younger line is targeted at the smart set: men who want to adopt a results-driven, scientifically proven, and easy antiaging approach to skincare. We want to solve the problem of aging skin such as lines and wrinkles, blotches, sagging, and crow’s feet. We formulated BosqYounger with the highest levels of our science. Our unique protocol combines a topical gel and supplement to support optimal skin health and supercharge vitality, vibrancy, and youthfulness.
