When It Comes to Active Ingredients, Fewer is Better

You want your skin care products to have powerful ingredients – but not too many. That’s because any formulation with a long list of active ingredients increases the risk of unpredictable interactions. Your skin is unique, so it’s smart to minimize the chance of an unwanted side effect, such as sensitivity to UV light.

With this in mind we look very carefully at every ingredient chosen for the Ao range. Bakuchiol is just one example.

As well as its proven anti-aging benefits, this plant-derived substance has proven its value in combating acne. This multi-functional effect has been demonstrated in clinical trials.

The described study also showed that bakuchiol has broad-spectrum anti-oxidant activity and effectively quenches superoxide-, hydroxy-, peroxy-, per- oxynitrile radicals and singlet oxygen non-radicals in addition to inhibiting lipid peroxidation…

‘Fewer but better’ is a good rule of thumb when choosing products to support healthy skin. After all, you don’t want to discover you’ve cured one problem but inadvertently triggered another.
