Brief Summary

Demonstrate the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) and response to a topical skin care product.

Detailed Description

Cross sectional study will utilize gene-specific candidate and genome wide association analysis to identify SNP's that may be associated with response to a topical product. Investigators and patients will be blinded to the genetic test results, and participants will be blinded to the skin product applied.

Exclusion Criteria:

1. Individuals who currently or in the last month have regularly used certain topical or oral medications which, in the opinion of the Investigators, may interfere with the study or that may expose study participants to unacceptable risks. Such products include oral prescription steroids or anti-inflammatories, topical steroids, or prescription skin treatment except for mild acne, as determined by the investigators.

2. Subjects who have a history of disease or current disease or regularly use topical or oral medications which, in the opinion of the Investigator, may interfere with the study or that may expose study participants to unacceptable risks. (i.e. oral or topical steroids or anti-inflammatories, etc.).

3. Uncontrolled metabolic disease such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism, or hypothyroidism or active Hepatitis, immune deficiency, or autoimmune disease as determined by the health questionnaire.

4. Pregnancy, nursing, or planning to become pregnant during the course of the study as determined by the health questionnaire.

5. History of skin cancer within the past 6 months.

6. Use of topical prescription retinoids for anti-aging including Retin-A®, Retin-A Micro®, Renova®, Avita®, Tazorac®, or Differin® within 2 weeks prior to the start of the study.

Use of oral retinoids within 6 months of the study start.

7. Subjects must not have had mid-depth or superficial chemical peel or other anti-aging procedures on the face (laser, intense pulsed light, injectable fillers microdermabrasion, etc.) within 2 months of the study start.

8. Known allergies or sensitivities to test material ingredients or any topical skin care product (i.e., alpha hydroxyacids, retinol, sunscreens, moisturizers, cleansers, masques, toners, etc.).

9. Individuals currently participating in other clinical testing.

10. Start of hormone use (including for birth control) or changed hormones less than three months prior to the start of the study. Qualified subjects must not be taking hormones or must have been taking them for at least three months prior to the study start.
