Whether you read it on the internet, heard it from a friend, or had it passed down from generation to generation, chances are you are clinging to at least one bad piece of skincare advice.
Because the beauty industry relies so heavily on word of mouth and recommendations (that is, a product largely succeeds if people review it positively, either IRL or online), skincare myths and false information can spread more easily than they might be able to in other industries.
Knowing the difference between myth and fact can lead to better decisions when taking care of your skin.
In this week’s podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with Ross Macdougald, Cosmetic Chemist and founder of Biologi.
Ross is calling for a change in the skincare and cosmetics industry, dedicating his time to educating consumers on the misleading and unsubstantiated claims that the industry is rife with. He wants brands to be more ethical and transparent so consumers can be fully aware of the ingredients used in products and know what they’re buying. As an experienced cosmetic chemist, Ross is dedicated to providing highly effective skincare products made out of purely natural ingredients. He is on a mission to prove through science that ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ can not only work but are better than synthetic man-made chemicals.
Wanting to change the game, Ross launched Biologi in 2017, the world’s first-ever 100% active single ingredient, organic, pure plant serum. Today Ross continues to explore the development of groundbreaking technology and game-changing ingredients, ensuring that people around the world have access to natural, superior and effective skincare.
Join us as Ross walks us through the nitty-gritty of skincare labels and formulation.
