How you feel about your skin is what really matters. We tested* a full set of our products (with the exception of #6 Retinal) on 40 people in 2016 and here's what they felt about the Ao Skincare system. First, we asked them about their overall experience with the products after 1 week and 94% of respondents either had a very positive or positive experience. For many, after 4 weeks of using the products, their experience improved even more. Note the 'very positive' shift after 4 weeks below:
Next, we asked them if they had any irritation to any of our products. In particular our Vitamin A substitute, Bakuchiol that has many of the benefits of Vitamin A, without the known side effects. This incredible ingredient is one of the 'stars' in our #5 Repair Night Treatment. 100% of respondents had no irritation to any of our products, including the product containing Bakuchiol.
Note: We did not use the Retinal cream in the study as we wanted to rule out Retinal being the cause of possible irritation.
Then we asked them how their skin felt after 1 week of use and again after 4 weeks. Most saw very positive results. Tight and firm, soft and supple, and hydrated. In fact, 92% saw a positive change to their skin. The results improved over time.
We use a number of proven anti-ageing ingredients in our products. One of these is Bakuchiol (a Vitamin A Substitute). Extracted from psoralea corylifolia seeds (commonly known as the Babchi plant), Bakuchiol has the anti-aging benefits of Retinol (Vitamin A) without the side effects of photosensitivity and skin irritation. We use Bakuchiol in #5 Repair and #6 Rewind.
Here is the summary of a controlled study conducted by Sytheon.
