Beauty Science AMA, Final Episode of Season 3!

Interview with Dr Shiva Farabi about AHA's

This week we got into the weeds about AHAs with chemist Dr Shiva Farabi. What are they, what do they do, what are the different AHAs out there and how do they differ from each other. Also explored in the episode - what are 'acids' in skincare, what's the difference between 'mechanical' and 'chemical' exfoliation, and for beginner AHA users, what's a good approach for incorporating them into your skincare routine.

"Clean" Beauty Science Panel

As promised, here's a condensed version of our #beautyscience panel on the "clean" beauty movement. In conversation with Dr Anke Ginzburg (@dr.ginza), Dr Aegean Chan (@draegeanchan) and Dr Michelle Wong (@labmuffinbeautyscience). Does clean beauty offer any benefit to consumers? It irritated cosmetic scientists to the degree that they’re showing up on social media. Fostering conversation and collaboration - That is a good thing.

Interview with Eunice Cofie about diversity in the beauty space

Consider the following: critical thinking in the misinformation age.

Featuring Ryan Armstrong, Samantha Yammine & Jonathan Jarry. From placenta smoothies to “perineum sunning” - jade eggs to vampire facials, there is no denying the uptick of bunk wellness claims in the 2010’s. This kind of noise has a large and measurable impact. Today, studies can find anything. And we’re increasingly confused about what a healthy lifestyle involves. Why do false beliefs continue (and spread) in the face of bad, sometimes even fatal, consequences?

Consider the following: critical thinking in the misinformation age.

Interview with Michelle Miller - debunking farming myths

This episode features a conversation with Michelle Miller, otherwise known as The Farm Babe . In a world of non-gmo and organic certified, Michelle takes on the massive challenge of attempting to debunk the myths and fallacies surrounding our food production. There's a general feeling that “organic” agriculture will be more sustainable, and you can see this even in the cosmetics industry - all of our “eco” certifiers prioritize ingredients sourced via organic agriculture. Is it?
