It all started 5 years ago when Julia Bao, a chemist from Toronto felt discouraged by the long, complicated list of ingredients that came with some of her skincare products. She set out to direct her career doing what she does best: research, experiment, and develop formulas. Julia’s motivation was to use a science-based approach to develop high-quality, Canadian-made, natural products designed to improve the skincare industry and help people across the globe to enhance their skin’s health.
BAO Laboratory has created premium skincare products using only the finest ingredients, ranging from the purest extracts of organic herbs and marine microorganisms to innovative molecular entities. BAO’s expertise is deeply connected to their strong belief that beauty originates from naturally healthy skin.
