Disco investigated their Daily Skin Supplement - "Fountain of Youth" to assess its effects on breakouts, bouts with acne, and men's overall perception of their skin's appearance. This was an open-label observational single-group clinical trial that used participant outcome methods for data collection. This means that there was one study group (the one that received the intervention); all participants received branded samples of the Disco product and had to complete baseline as well as intervention questionnaires. 

About Disco

Clean products that offers supercharged performance

Arising from a disillusionment with the lack of skin care products targeted at men and their routines, Ben, the founder of Disco, sought to create a brand that would cater to men's needs. Disco is founded on principles of transparency and accessibility, and with each of their products, they strive to promote clarity around the purpose of each ingredient in their formulas. Looking and feeling your best should be easy, and Disco creates products that accomplish just that.

 

Disco formulas are created using natural, vegan ingredients to boost your skin health -- from the inside out. Their supplements and skincare products address a gap in the market by avoiding potentially harmful materials such as aluminum and preservatives such as parabens. 

Disco has received rave reviews from its users and decided to keep up the momentum with clinical research through Citruslabs. Their goal is to deliver scientifically informed formulas to their customer base and create claims based on the product's actual performance on real people.

The product

Disco has created an all-natural daily supplement that promotes clear, vibrant skin and reduces the formation of blemishes and wrinkles. Carefully formulated with a blend of probiotics, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, these all-natural ingredients work together to fortify the gut-skin connection and give your skin a glow.

Study design

This was a single-arm observational study over twelve weeks. Each day for the duration of the study, participants took two pills of the daily supplement with water and food. Participants completed a survey at baseline, week six, and week twelve to provide information about their skin health as well as any side effects. Photos of participants' complexion were also taken at baseline and study completion. 

The participants

37 male participants, aged 18-55, completed the study. All participants were generally healthy with self-reported skin concerns such as frequent breakouts. Participants agreed to stop taking any other supplements that targeted the skin for the duration of the study.

Results: After using the product for 12 weeks,  83% of participants agreed that they would recommend the supplement to others, while 86% agreed that they enjoyed the results of the product.
