Ave + Edam celebrates individuality in all its facets with personalized skin care. They offer personalized skin care of the highest quality, because one size fits most.
Personalized skin care via online test and algorithm
In a skin test on aveandedam.com, customers answer specific questions about various aspects of the skin and lifestyle. The detailed test was developed by a team of skin care experts and renowned dermatologists, including Dr. Gregor Wahl and Dr. Belong to Timm Golüke. The result of the test is a personalized skin cream with the best personal ingredients, the ”hero ingredients”. All ingredients are determined using an algorithm. This identifies the specific needs of the person doing the skin test. Artificial intelligence is used, which is fed on the one hand from expert knowledge and on the other hand from individual information. The result is a ”co-creation” that takes into account skin condition, health, lifestyle and environmental factors. This information is summarized in a unique skin ID.
Clean, smart and vegan
The Ave + Edam laboratory is based in Berlin and produces in Germany. Only pure ingredients, clean formulations and high-quality active ingredients are used and there is no silicone, parabens, petrolate PEGs, mineral oils, microplastics, nanoparticles and of course animal testing. Each skin cream is produced within 5 to 10 days after the skin test and delivered directly to your home. Long storage is avoided and resource-saving and sustainable production is made possible.
