July 20th, 2023
We’re excited to share another piece of evidence in support of OS-01 EYE, our revolutionary treatment formulated to reverse signs of aging in the delicate skin around the eyes. Backed by extensive lab and beta testing before launch, OS-01 EYE is now also clinically validated to increase elasticity and firmness around the eyes. Join us as we share the methods behind the clinical study–and how these results confirm the extensive evidence gathered in the OneSkin lab.

What’s the difference between lab data & clinical data?

Before we dive into the results of our clinical study, here’s a quick refresher on the different kinds of studies we conduct on our products here at OneSkin.
  • Lab Data: Conducted by our in-house team of scientists on skin cells and skin samples, our lab research reveals the effects of our products on tissue health, genetic expression, and other cellular processes. This testing ensures that our products target skin health and longevity on the cellular level – increasing our confidence that our products will deliver meaningful, long-lasting results.
  • Clinical Data: It’s only once we fully understand the cellular impacts of our products that we test them in clinical studies to observe their effects on real people. In partnership with a third-party research organization, we test our finished products on volunteers for a period of at least 12 weeks, then measure their impacts on factors like hydration, firmness, and more.
We also conduct beta testing on all of our products before they go live. A chance for loyal OneSkin users to tell us how the product feels and performs, our beta testing helps us ensure the products that deliver cellular benefits are also enjoyable to use.

What were the results of OS-01 EYE’s clinical study?

After putting our eye treatment to the test for 12 weeks, our third-party research partners observed the following noticeable improvements in skin health.
  1. Better elasticity: 86% of users showed a marked improvement in under-eye skin elasticity with an average improvement of +23.58%*
  2. Firmer skin: 73% of users showed a significant improvement in skin firmness with an average improvement of +10.19%.*
  3. Improved skin appearance: 95% of users reported that the overall appearance of their under-eye skin improved with the daily use of OS-01 EYE.**

How do these results confirm lab findings?

While we were thrilled to learn that OS-01 EYE showed such a meaningful impact in clinical studies, we weren’t exactly surprised. That’s because we had already proven that OS-01 EYE promotes healthy collagen levels in our lab research. Because collagen is the main structural protein that supports both skin elasticity and firmness, our lab data predicted that OS-01 EYE would show these changes even before our clinical tests were performed.In lab studies observing the expression of key biomarkers associated with collagen production (COL1A1) and degradation (MMP1) on human eyelid skin samples, OS-01 EYE was shown to improve collagen biosynthesis and retention at the cellular level. To further confirm that these biomarker results actually reflected increased collagen protein levels in the skin, we conducted another study on ex vivo human eyelid samples from a 70-year-old donor. We found that OS-01 EYE increased collagen protein levels by up to 2.3x. This functional increase in collagen levels is likely why OS-01 EYE shows such a significant impact on firmness, elasticity, and overall skin appearance after just a few months of use.

The results are the average of testing in 3 different ex vivo eyelid skin samples grown from 42y, 59y, and 84y donors.

What long-term impacts can we expect from OS-01 EYE?

Our products work at the cellular level, so they don’t promise instant results, but rather a gradual and lasting improvement in skin. Even so, twelve weeks is a relatively rapid timeline to observe the visible effects of cellular improvements in the skin, which is why we’re all the more excited about our clinical results. Powered by the highest concentration of our OS-01 peptide, OS-01 EYE was formulated to reduce accelerated skin aging that’s especially pronounced in delicate under-eye skin. Because the OS-01 peptide has been scientifically proven to reverse biological aging 01, we believe that OS-01 EYE will continue working to slow and prevent signs of aging like wrinkles, under-eye bags and more when used consistently. Anecdotally, our user reviews already reflect this reality, with reports of diminished fine lines, smoother texture, noticeable firmness and more. You can

Key Takeaways:
  • Before launching OS-01 EYE, we conducted extensive lab testing to validate its impacts on the cellular level.
  • These tests showed that OS-01 EYE increased collagen levels in ex vivo human skin samples by 2.3x, giving us the confidence that our treatment functionally improves under-eye aging.
  • Now, we’re happy to report that OS-01 EYE has been proven in clinical studies on human participants to improve firmness, elasticity and the overall appearance of skin.
  • This data confirms what we already suspected: by increasing collagen levels in the skin01, OS-01 EYE can help the skin resist signs of aging including skin sagging & laxity.
