Creating an inclusive beauty industry requires filling in gaps in skin health research for consumers with darker skin tones.
Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health recently released new research on sun protection and acne for consumers with darker skin tones.
JJCH Science Engagement Director for skin health Menas Kizoulis told CosmeticsDesign the company was aiming to better understand skin health issues for consumers of color and educate the general public about skin needs and solutions.
“(Our dermatological advisory boards) believe that in many cases the BIPOC consumer (is) a little misinformed, sometimes by some of the information that might exist out there,” Kizoulis said. “There's a whole host of opportunities to really better educate consumers of color on their skin and their skincare routine.”
