Welcome to a great new world of skincare marketing where flaws are embraced, skin care treatments are entertainment, and acne-positivity has its own hashtag.

  • Lotions (inc hand and body lotion), balms, moisturisers and humectants, aftershaves lubricants and emollients
  • Rubs, poultices, embrocation liquids, ointments, unctions, unguents, pomades and salves

I believe that when skincare brands connect with their audience in this new world of self-care and care for the planet, magic can happen.

THE TOP CHALLENGES FOR SKINCARE BRANDS

  • Ingredients: Use of synthetic chemicals that are harmful to the skin and body. Unwillingness to use more expensive natural organic ingredients that are harmless for the skin. Some skincare products use synthetic chemicals also found in the auto industry. Scary!
  • Fairtrade: Using suppliers who do not pay fairly to their workers.
  • Disposal: Using packaging that cannot be recycled or upcycled. Smart packaging should be easy to use for other tasks.
  • Skin diversity in advertising. Promoting skincare with just white-skin models who do not bring all the different types and colours on the skin on brand promotions, marketing and advertising
  • Proof of Authenticity. Hard to find information about skincare ingredients’ source, history and proof of authenticity.

As you age, your skin’s cells turn over more slowly, making it look less radiant. Using a quality skincare line can help remove dead skin cells so your body will replace them with newer, more youthful cells.

Tip: A good skincare routine is only as good as the products you use. While good quality products can help your skin look better now as well as in the future, poor quality products can be ineffective and even cause harm to your skin.
