Did you know that most lotions were not made with your skin in mind? At first, that may sound outlandish, but only 1% of skin research is dedicated to ethnic skin. This means that a majority of products you see on shelves today were not made for people of color.
The Problem with Skin Care
Why does this matter? There are over 100,000 differences between ethnic and non-ethnic skin. One of the key differences is that ethnic skin is harder to penetrate.
This is why standard body lotions and skin care products may not work as effectively for you. They might even damage your skin barrier and cause you to develop dry skin! Crazy, right? They definitely don't put that side effect on their labels!
To make matters worse, some lotions are formulated with petroleum jelly. This ingredient has been linked to cancer, PCOS, and infertility in both men and women. Who would have thought that skin care products could lead to a slew of other health conditions? Simply put, all moisturizers are not compatible with your skin barrier.
If this is true, then why aren’t beauty companies tailoring moisturizers according to ethnicity? The lack of representation in the beauty industry has hindered the drive towards inclusive lotions.
