Skin Care Clinical Trials: Everything You Need to Know

When you shop for new skin care products, many will claim various benefits. From long descriptions to buzz words, it can be nearly impossible to know if what you’re buying is effective and, more importantly, safe! That’s where clinical trials come in.

MUTHA™ recently got new clinical trial results for our No. 1 Serum. So, you may be wondering what a clinical trial is and why you should care. Read on as we pull back the curtain.

What are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials provide comprehensive data regarding product claims and efficacy. Some of the elements a skin care trial may examine include:
  • Dermal safety
  • Potency testing
  • Benefit substantiation
Clinical trials start by getting a sample of participants to use the product over a specific time period. This can vary from weeks to months. During the trial, participants document their progress with before and after pictures. In some cases, a control group of participants (a group not using the product) is directly compared against the group using the product.

Why You Should Care About Clinical Trials

Not all skin care brands will opt into clinical skin care trials due to the significant investment of time and money they represent. However, the graphic illustrations and statistical data often included in the results can shed greater light on the true benefits of skin care products.

This makes clinical skin care trials worth their weight in gold. It’s about the peace of mind they offer and the comfort of knowing that the claims you see on the product have been researched and validated.
