Cultural nuances influence many areas of society, including the products and practices we use to care for our skin. But today, many beauty companies are forgoing the use of culturally significant ingredients in favor of medical-grade components in their skin care products. So why is culture so important to skincare and the beauty industry, and should cultural beauty ingredients continue to have a place in future skincare products?
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 starts season 3 by introducing this month’s current theme – skincare and culture. Throughout history, different cultures have applied natural ingredients within their skincare practices. However, many modern beauty brands choose instead to incorporate medical-grade ingredients over organic, culturally significant elements. Dr. Sethi discusses culture’s impact on the global beauty industry, the benefits and drawbacks of utilizing natural ingredients in skincare, and how organic cultural components can be used safely alongside modern skincare advances. Finally, she shares options for medical-grade yet botanical skincare solutions that merge cultural ingredients with science-backed skin care practices.
