Embody was founded by Jennifer Chung - a cosmetic and beauty industry veteran. After experiencing terrible acne throughout her entire teenage and early adult life, and trying countless topical products and procedures that didn’t help her, she was turning to the “beauty from within” movement, which eventually did the trick. Her mission is to make skin care not only effortless and enjoyable, but also tasty.

What Do I Do with My Results?

The results of your clinical trial or research study are more than just data points, they tell a story about the performance of your product. You can take the data generated by your research and turn it into marketable product claims, backed by scientific support. Your CRO can often help with this process, as they are experts in extracting meaning from extensive data.

Benefits of Clinical Research for Embody and Other Brands

Interventional studies are a great way for supplement brands to highlight the effects of consistent use of their product. Embody's clinical trial is a great example of a brand backing up their product claims with scientific evidence. Now, Embody is able to market their product through the user experiences gathered in their trial.

Study results for Embody's retinol gummy


The results of this study indicate that regular intake of a retinol gummy can provide improvement in skin tone and texture, improvements in the lightening of aging-related dark spots, and improved appearance of healthy-looking and less dull skin. Regular intake of oral retinol was found to be effective and tolerated well by the participants in the study. These findings show promise for the use of a retinol gummy as part of a healthy skincare routine.
