Aveeno was created in 1945 by two brothers: Sidney and Albert Musher. It all started with two entrepreneurial brothers that were driven by profound curiosity about how things work and how substances interact. They both also shared a passionate belief in century-old remedies, believed that they are the key to unlock the Pandora box of human wellness.
The brothers began experimenting with raw cereals like oats in conjunction with the Mayo Clinic Dermatology Centre in America. Oats which had been used in skincare since back then for their soothing properties was found to be a very good naturally active ingredient for the skin. Experiments conducted by the Mushers led to the development and commercialisation of a natural bath additive containing 100% colloidal (very finely milled) oatmeal, which is the main ingredient for Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment.
Since then, clinical evidence of more than 50 years has been published supported the benefits of formulations containing colloidal oatmeal for both dry and irritated skin. All Aveeno body products today are still formulated with this naturally active colloidal oatmeal and/or oat extracts. Aveeno, the pioneer in the discovery of naturally active ingredients, is still striving till this day in its unending discovery to make even better real skincare products that will benefit us all. Read on to discover the science behind Aveeno products.
For over 60 years, Aveeno scientists have been working on discovering new methods of extracting the power of Naturally Active Ingredients which are processes that require three rigorous steps.
- Identifying — Aveeno scientists will firstly identify, then perform screening and finally validate the Naturally Active Ingredients to ensure that they are maintained at their natural strength and purity.
- Screening — Aveeno scientists search globally for plants and botanicals that could potentially deliver significant benefits to the skin. Preclinical testing is then performed on the most promising naturally active ingredients to show their activity and stability.
- Validation — Aveeno scientists then validates these selected naturally active ingredients by performing clinical tests are them. Many rounds of testing are made to ensure the naturally active ingredients’ mildness and safety.
PS: during the initial screening stages, thousands of natural ingredients are looked upon. Aveeno really takes that extra mile in ensuring only the best and safest ingredients are used in its formulation of products.
Aveeno is always committed in the development of Naturally Active Ingredients as well as the delivering of effective skincare solutions that are formulated to highest quality standards.
As not all natural ingredients are suitable for skin care purposes, Aveeno scientists carries out special documentation of these topical benefits of formulations that contain naturally active ingredients and will then be thoroughly compared with other ingredients. Out of those selected, only a handful are taken to further development. Formulations are then developed using these Naturally Active Ingredients.
Clinical studies and in-house studies are also performed after product formulation to validate the safety and efficacy of the products and in ensuring the look, feel and smell of all Aveeno products.
