Developed for women with “richer skin tones” or “women of color”, AMBI is a skin care line marketed toward women of African, Asian, Hispanic, and other descents. The main part of their product line is made up of fade creams, made to even out skin tones and rid the skin of age spots or discolorations. Otherwise, they sell facial creams and specialty bars. They are sold mostly through drug stores, but not on the official website. The AMBI skin care line uses ingredients such as salicylic acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Hydroquinone, and alpha hydroxy acid. They claim to work against sun damage, discolorations, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The AMBI skin care line uses a number of antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E to fight free radicals and sun damage, as well as renewing the skin with ingredients like salicylic acid. The company itself has also been in business since 1966, giving wary customers a sense of history.
There is no proof such as clinical trials, customer testimonials, or a money back guarantee posted on the AMBI website. Some of the ingredients used can cause negative or allergic reactions in some individuals, and the official website does not even provide prices to expect on their products.
AMBI is certainly not the first company to target their marketing toward women with darker skin tones or “women of color.” That marketing tactic has been used with shampoos and conditioners, body washes, and all sorts of other products. And like those companies, AMBI has failed to provide proof that their product can live up to its claims.
