  1. STUDY SUMMARY 

    • Number of Participants: 60

    • Age Group: 25 - 60 years old

    • Panelist Recruitment: Panelists were screened and recruited from the Good Face App to ensure they are qualified for the study. Panelists were divided into 2 groups to conduct a split test:

      • Group A tested the wand

      • Group B tested the wand with the Renew Complex Serum

    • The study did not intend to examine skin concerns in any specific race or ethnicity, therefore participants included in the subject represented any race/ethnicity. The subjects were recruited from all races/ethnicities/skin types/skin conditions to the extent possible.

    • The study made every attempt to ensure adequate representation of each minority/ethnic group.

    • Selected participants read a list of product ingredients in order to decline participation if they are allergic, or suspect that they are allergic to any of the ingredients. No allergic reactions have been reported to the Good Face Project as of the date of this report.

    • There were no severe adverse reactions reported by the participants as of the date of this report.

    • Duration of the study: 30 days

    • Online subjective assessment. Questionnaires were given to the subjects at Day 1, Day 14, and Day 30 of the study to evaluate the benefits and overall user experience of the panelists. The following were the product claims (statements) validated with participants:

  2. DISTRIBUTION OF PRODUCT:

    Group A: each panelist received a SolaWave Wand and a printed protocol; Group B: one month’s supply of the Renew Complex Serum, a SolaWave Wand and printed protocols were shipped to each panelist via The Good Face Project’s 3PL partner.

  3. STUDY PROTOCOL: The following were the protocols which panelists were required to follow during the study.

    GROUP A

    Products in your Expert Panel package:

    SolaWave Red Light Wand

    Usage:

    We recommend starting out at 5 minutes per day for the first few days. As your skin acclimates, you can sue it for longer and as frequently as desired for up to 30 minutes per day.

    To use your SolaWave Wand, start with a clean, dry face. For best results, use the SolaWave Wand on hydrated skin. To achieve hydration, pair with an activating serum or any facial mist, moisturizer, serum of your choosing. The treatment area should feel wet. Reapply if the product dries prior to completing your treatment.

    SolaWave uses smart-touch activation, so, to turn your wand on and off, simply place the head of the wand against the skin of the face to turn on, and remove it to turn off. When using the wand, glide across your face in an upward and outward movement.

    Please review the online instructional videos at https://www.solawave.co/tutorials before the first use.

    Product Warnings: The SolaWave Wand is designed for cosmetic use only and for individuals in good health. For adult use only, keep out of reach of children. Out of an abundance of caution, we do not recommend using the SolaWave Wand if you have an active or recent cancer diagnosis, have a pacemaker (or other implanted metal in your body), or are pregnant.

    Surveys:

    Surveys will be distributed by The Good Face Project via e-mail on Day 0, Day 13, and Day 29. Please answer each question by end of Day 1, Day 14, and Day 30. Any missing survey responses will be considered deviation from the study protocol and will disqualify you from further panel participation and your participation rewards will be retracted.

    Adverse Events:

    If you experience a negative reaction or adverse event to the product(s), immediately discontinue use and contact the study sponsor. Contact information on page 1.

    Cancellation:

    If you are no longer able to participate in the study, we ask that you please allow for a 24hr cancellation notice prior to study start date. If needed, contact the study sponsor. Contact information on page 1.

    GROUP B

    Products in your Expert Panel package:

    SolaWave Red Light Wand and Renew Complex Serum

    Usage:

    To use your SolaWave Wand, start with a clean, dry face. For best results, use the SolaWave Wand on hydrated skin. Apply a generous layer of the SolaWave Renew Complex Serum to the face. If at any time the serum dries out or becomes less lubricated, simply reapply the serum to the skin or apply the serum section-by-section to the face during your SolaWave session.

    SolaWave uses smart-touch activation, so, to turn your wand on and off, simply place the head of the wand against the skin of the face to turn on, and remove it to turn off. When using the wand, glide across your face in an upward and outward movement.

    We recommend starting out at 5 minutes per day for the first few days. As your skin acclimates, you can sue it for longer and as frequently as desired for up to 30 minutes per day.
