Skin is our body’s largest organ, and OneSkin, a scientifically-driven wellness movement that’s rooted in tangible research, has pioneered the way we approach skincare by steering the narrative towards honesty, authenticity, and factual solutions that are supported by empirical evidence. OneSkin wants you to embrace the journey of aging with confidence. The key to sustaining healthy, natural skin relies on targeting the root cause of skin aging rather than simply masking its visible signs. The objective should be to improve your skin health, not hide it with temporary fixes out of fear. As a research-based initiative, OneSkin is able to offer long-term solutions that address aging at its core, improving overall wellness and subsequently, your skin’s appearance.
Officially launched in 2021, OneSkin was founded by a team of women who each hold PhDs in their respective fields. Co-founders Carolina Reis Oliveira, Alessandra Zonari, Mariana Boroni, and Juliana Lott were dissecting the efficacy of topical skincare through their proprietary algorithm, MolClock, when they found that most leading skincare brands were ineffective, and some actually accelerated the aging process. This keen observation acted as the catalyst for the group to begin formulating scientifically-proven products in order to revolutionize skin longevity.
The core differentiator of OneSkin’s product line is their proprietary peptide, OS-01; an ingredient that targets aged cells to improve internal and external skin health markers for long-term, visible results. Following five years of research screening over 800 different peptides, OneSkin’s founding team of scientists discovered that the OS-01 peptide not only boosted skin health, but it also reduced the skin’s biological age (shown in lab studies on ex vivo human skin models) helping to reverse the aging process. Upon verifying these discoveries, OneSkin set out on a mission to supply a comprehensive yet simple product line that targets aging at the molecular level while simultaneously inviting a new perspective on the aging process that is more honest and celebratory by design.
To the untrained eye, the depth of science that supports OneSkin’s mission can be overwhelming. In the simplest terms, the company’s proprietary peptide, OS-01, reduces the accumulation of senescent cells, or the cells that have reached the end of their cycle (shown in lab studies on in vitro skin cells). Cells become senescent when they reach the end of their lifecycle. When left to linger, senescent cells secrete harmful biochemical signals that drive aging processes. And the damage doesn’t stop there. Like rotten apples that spoil the bunch, senescent cells drive neighboring cells into senescence, triggering an acceleration of aging.
OneSkin leveraged the OS-01 peptide as its star ingredient, powering its line of Topical Supplements. This includes their flagship product, OS-01 FACE, a daily moisturizer designed for areas most exposed to damage, including the face, hands, and neck. By harnessing the molecular power of the OS-01 peptide, users will find that their skin not only looks younger, but also feels like younger skin.
By leading with science, OneSkin is correcting the narratives that surround beauty and wellness by improving skin health in all stages of life. OneSkin doesn’t use fear-based, anti-aging tactics notoriously seen throughout the beauty industry. Instead, they redefine societal perceptions around aging by helping unlock the self-confidence to embrace the journey in a healthier manner that optimizes performance, and therefore, appearance.
OneSkin is committed to transparency and scientific rigor. Where other brands may lead with fabricated allure, OneSkin bares it all with honesty and techniques that are backed by extensive data. The four leading ladies of OneSkin truly excel in the lab, where everything initially started just five years ago. Built on a foundation of trust and evidentiary support, OneSkin has a wealth of knowledge to refresh the narratives surrounding the natural beauty of the skin and the ways we can sustain that beauty at every stage of our lives.
