The beauty industry is a vast market, generating billions of dollars yearly from customers worldwide. The skincare industry is a large part of this, so why is it so difficult for people of color to find skincare products formulated for their skin needs? Unfortunately, the strong presence of racism, colorism, and euro-centric beauty standards in the beauty industry has led to the skin care industry’s active exclusion of people of color.
The Skin Report is a podcast created to educate listeners on methods to improve skin health for people of all ethnicities and ages. On this episode, host Dr. Sethi discusses the skincare industry: what’s wrong with it, why, and how it can be improved. While there is much demand for skin care products aimed toward people of color, not many exist on the market today. We will discuss why this is, covering topics including the lack of research on darker skin tones, the lack of diversity within the skincare industry itself, and the lack of consideration for melanated skin when developing skincare products. Tune in to this episode to learn more about the skin care industry’s problems with inclusivity and how they can improve this by formulating effective and safe products for people of color.
