Inspiring article! It makes me want to know more about the actual chemistry behind skincare ingredients.
Another eye opening, confirming article. “I think a lot of people hear ‘there’s research, there’s a study,’ but there’s not enough people going, ‘Yeah, but does that study really come to the conclusion that you’re saying?’” says Chao. “There’s enough of a respect for science that people want to believe in things that seem scientific, but they don’t want to evaluate the claims carefully. There’s not enough of a focus on scientific literacy.” That quote says it all.
I really love finding out the science behind things. If there’s a skincare product I like, I try to figure out what components of it are causing the effects that I like and then see if I can translate that to other products.
