A CLINICAL STUDY
OS-01 Peptide
A third-party research organization with no affiliation to OneSkin conducted a 12-week split-face double-blind clinical study to evaluate the effects of the OS-01 peptide and OS-01 FACE, which has been published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. 
The Findings
The OS-01 peptide significantly improves skin barrier function and skin texture.

Shattering industry norms (in other words, business as usual)

The study isolated the effect of the OS-01 peptide using a split-face design
Participants applied OS-01 FACE to one side of their face and an identical formulation without the peptide (termed the “vehicle” formulation) to the other. With this approach, it would be clear that any improvements between each side were a direct result of the OS-01 peptide.
Given that OS-01 FACE is packed with bioactive ingredients that have their own benefits, comparing it against an identical, peptide-free version really put OS-01 in the spotlight. This method isn’t something you see every day in the skin care industry, making our study not only rigorous, but also quite unique.

Smoother, more radiant skin with a stronger barrier—all from the OS-01 peptide
By comparing improvements between skin treated with OS-01 FACE versus the vehicle formulation, the investigators found that the OS-01 peptide:
  • Significantly improves barrier function and protects the skin from dehydration
  • Significantly improves skin texture
  • Improves skin radiance and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
The improvement in barrier function is consistent with data that our scientists have collected in the lab, showing that the OS-01 peptide increases skin’s epidermal thickness — a key factor in barrier strength and function.* Additionally, the improvement in skin texture aligns with what’s happening at the cellular level, since our scientists have determined that the OS-01 peptide increases key biomarkers associated with collagen and hyaluronic acid production, which contribute to more even skin texture.* Finally, improvements in radiance and wrinkles were likely due to the fact that the OS-01 peptide has been shown to reduce the levels of senescence in skin, a central hallmark of aging.*

The study eliminated human bias
To minimize bias, our study was double-blinded, meaning that neither the researchers nor the participants knew which side of their face received the OS-01 formula, and which got the lookalike without the peptide.
Three methods of analysis
1. Instrumental analysis:
  • Vapometer to measure skin barrier function
  • Antera 3D to measure skin texture and wrinkles
  • VISIA imaging software to measure skin radiance
2. Expert clinical grade evaluation: Blinded experts grade high resolution images of participants’ skin before and after treatment3. Self-perception questionnaire: Participants report the effects they observed before and after treatment
