Is your skin getting its RDA?
Sometimes we use more chemical ingredients than our skin actually needs. That’s why Sanex Zero% contains only what your skin needs and nothing more. And with its eco pack it’s better for the environment too.
Why it matters
Consumers have become more conscious about their health and what exactly they are putting into their bodies and in what quantities. Will we see more beauty brands balancing essential ingredients for what our body needs, like recommended daily amounts that we have for vitamins and nutrients?
A few weeks ago, two American mothers, whose teen daughters are suffering from cancer, asked Mattel to produce a bald Barbie to allow their children to identify better with their favourite doll. They have collected over 150,000 “likes”on their Facebook page since they launched their online campaign.
Researchers from the University of Michigan Health System have developed an app that allows users to screen themselves for skin cancer by using their mobile phones. The app, UMSkinCheck provides a step-by-step guide asking users to take a series of 23 pictures from different parts of their body. The photos provide a baseline for future comparisons that allows users to monitor changes to a skin lesion over time.
The app also includes a risk calculator for users to input their personal data and calculate if they’re at risk of developing skin cancer.
