In the initial screening we look at thousands of natural ingredients.
AVEENO™ scientists search around the world for plants and botanicals that could potentially deliver significant benefits in skincare. These are called naturally active ingredients. Preclinical testing is performed on the most promising naturally active ingredients to show their activity and stability.
We then validate selected naturally active ingredients
Clinical tests are then performed to ensure the naturally active ingredients’ mildness and safety, as not all natural ingredients are suitable for use in skin care. After that stage, we document topical benefits of formulations containing naturally active ingredients.
Out of those selected, only a handful are taken to development
Formulations are then developed using the Naturally Active Ingredients. Clinical studies and in-use studies are performed to validate the safety and efficacy of the products as well as making sure they look, feel and smell great!
