Our Team

Started in 2017 with funding from pitch events to raise money for a hair product to help people with trichotillomania, Biomaterix launched Prohibere in December 2017. Emily Kight has had trichotillomania since she was 8 years old. While working in the lab, she wondered if she could make something to replace the pulling sensation with a cooling sensation. So she invented Prohibere to help people. While it's not going to work for every person with trichotillomania, it has been helping people with trichotillomania to work as a replace sensation using competing response training.
