Pharrell’s Humanrace Ventures Into Suncare

Pharrell Williams is making his first foray into sun care. His product company Humanrace will debut two refillable SPF 30 products, which are both made from mineral-based formulations. The expansion continues Humanrace’s commitment to formulas for all skin types.

This venture has been two years in the making, and with it, Humanrace seeks to tackle the misconception that sunscreen is not necessary for people of color and those with deeper skin tones.

Our Earth’s ozone layer naturally protects us from harmful UV radiation from the sun, but we still need to protect ourselves daily from the UV rays that get through. We believe there is room under the sun for everyone, and we all need to be wearing sunscreen daily.

Pharrell Williams, singer

Developed with the help of Pharrell’s personal dermatologist of 20 years, Dr. Elena Jones, the new line emphasizes that everyone needs to protect themselves from the sun, no matter their skin color.

The myth that dark skin can go without sunscreen originates from the fact that melanin — the substance that produces pigment in the skin, eyes and hair — helps absorb harmful UV rays. Basically: the darker your skin is, the less likely you are to get sunburned. Despite melanin’s protective properties, melanated skin is still susceptible to the effects of sun damage, including dark spots, wrinkles, and skin cancer.

The biggest misconception is that deeper skin tones don’t need sunscreen, but no matter what color your skin is, all skin tones need a daily sunscreen, rain or shine. I have patients every day asking what they should be doing to care for their skin, the easiest thing to do is start wearing sunscreen daily.

Dr. Elena Jones, dermatologist

Because there’s less awareness surrounding the necessity of sunscreen for dark-skinned people, Black patients are more likely to be diagnosed with skin cancer at a later stage, resulting in a worse prognosis. In fact, a study conducted by the CDC showed that the five-year- melanoma survival rate among Black folks was 66.2 percent, compared with 90.1 percent for white people.

The launch consists of Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer and Ozone Body Protection Cream, they work in tandem to protect and hydrate your skin from head to toe. Vegan, fragrance-free, with PA ++++ protection, the Ozone Protection Set is the final step in your routine, rain or shine.

Humanrace Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer

Created for daily use, the Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer leads the charge. A mineral SPF 30 made with effective ingredients for your skin. Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and the company’s signature snow mushroom extract and blue light protection for a sheer, white cast free finish for hydrated, protected skin.

Humanrace Ozone Body Protection Cream

Next up is the water-resistant (40 min) Ozone Body Protection Cream, a mineral SPF 30 without the white cast. This formula dual-functions as a hydrating body cream. Squalane, jojoba seed oil and aloe work with our signature snow mushroom extract to hydrate the skin.

Refillable

The new refillable products come in bold orange packaging crafted from 50% post-consumer recycled landfill plastic, and consumers will be able to refill their sun care empties at a discounted price. The body cream and face moisturizer will each retail for $58 and $52, respectively, or consumers can buy the Ozone Protection Set, which includes both products, for $94.

The Humanrace Suncare line will officially launch for U.S. and European consumers on the brand’s website on July 14, they will be available before then exclusively for attendees of the musician’s music festival, ‘Something in the Water’, taking place in Washington, D.C., on Juneteenth weekend, June 17 to 19, and to Humanrace subscribers. 

Considering Pharrell’s shockingly luminous skin, you’ll want to heed his advice: sunscreen, always! Come into the beautiful world of Humanrace.

Summer is Here: Making Educated and Informed Choices to Stay Sun-Safe

 

 

Dr.-Allison-Britt-Kimmins

Dermatologist Dr. Allison Britt Kimmins, MD, MPH with Advanced Dermatology PC with Tips on Reducing the Risks of Skin Cancer While Enjoying Summer.

As never before, the chance to get outside under sunny skies is a relief. “It’s been especially welcoming as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic”, observes Dr. Allison Britt Kimmins, a dermatologist with Advanced Dermatology PC. After weeks spent inside to limit the spread of coronavirus, it is no surprise that we are all anxious to get outside and enjoy the sun. “However” emphasizes Dr. Britt Kimmins, “we want to make sure that we also protect ourselves from the damaging and potentially deadly ultraviolet light”.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world. In the United States, cases outnumber all other cancers combined, according to the non-profit Skin Cancer Foundation.

In spite of all we know, rates of skin cancer continue to rise. In this country, 20% of the population will get skin cancer by the time we’re seventy. Last year, it was estimated that 192,310 people in the U.S. would be diagnosed with melanoma – the deadliest cancer of all.

Dr. Allison Britt Kimmins

The threat of the sun’s ultraviolet rays is so great that the World Health Organization lists them as Group 1 carcinogens, alongside plutonium and cigarettes. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services also has labeled the sun’s radiation as a known carcinogen. “Ninety percent or more of cases of skin cancer are linked to sun exposure”, states Dr. Britt Kimmins. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “having 5 or more sunburns doubles your risk of developing melanoma”. In 2020, it is estimated that the number of melanoma cases is expected to rise.

Protecting children and helping young people develop healthy sun habits are keys to reducing skin cancer rates. Just one blistering sunburn during childhood almost doubles the risk of melanoma. Most of the damage occurs before the age of eighteen.

Dr. Allison Britt Kimmins

“Every one of us – regardless of skin tone or age – will benefit from practicing ‘safe sun precautions”, advises Dr. Britt Kimmins, who makes the following suggestions to enjoy the outdoors safely.

5 Tips to Stay Sun-Safe This Summer – and Year-Round

  1. Stick to your skin-checkup schedule: “Early intervention is essential to stay safe from skin cancer. “When detected and treated early, the 5 year survival rate for melanoma is over 98%. Dr. Britt Kimmins recommends that patients see a dermatologist to establish their baseline level of skin health and identify their level of risk. Scheduling regular annual skin examinations will help to monitor the skin for changes and encourage self-examination. This supports early intervention and effective treatment”.
  2. Make sure that your sunscreen protects you: “People may think they’re protected when they are not”, warns Dr. Britt Kimmins. “We need to apply enough sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going outdoors and reapply every 2 hours while outside. If swimming or sweating, more frequent reapplication may be necessary. It is important to apply enough sunscreen to all exposed areas including hands, feet, neck, scalp and ears. A one ounce shot glass is the amount needed to cover exposed areas of skin”.
  3. Remember: You need more than sunscreen: “Even if we follow the American Academy of Dermatology’s guidelines”, notes Dr. Britt Kimmins, “and use a water-resistant product that is SPF 30 or higher with full-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, we cannot completely avoid the sun’s rays. Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun is most direct, we need to be careful: Seek shade and wear protective clothing, including a hat and sunglasses”.
  4. Indoor ‘sun’ is just as risky: “Just one indoor tanning session”, Dr. Britt Kimmins emphasizes, “can increase the risk of cancer by almost 70%. Additionally, tanning beds primarily emit UVA rays which penetrate our skin more deeply, further accelerating changes associated with aging”.
  5. Pass safe sun habits on to the next generation: “Protecting children and helping young people develop healthy sun habits are keys to reducing skin cancer rates”, states Dr. Britt Kimmins. Just one blistering sunburn during childhood almost doubles the risk of melanoma. Most of the damage occurs before the age of eighteen. Young people are influenced by the behaviors of their caregivers. We see this, for example, with tanning bed use, which often begins during teen years, in the company of a family member”.

“As we all spend time outdoors this summer, let’s remember our sun-safety suggestions so we can stay healthy now – and skin-cancer-free for years to come”.

La Roche-Posay Releases My Skin Track UV Wearable Technology

 

la-roche-posay-my-skin-track-poloshirt.jpg

Better looking skin starts with healthy habits, and that’s why La Roche-Posay continues its commitment to skin and sun-safety research and innovation.

Consider that more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year than all other cancers combined.

Back in 2016, the L’Oréal-owned brand introduced the first ever stretchable skin sensor to monitor UV exposure, My UV Patch. At the time, subsequent consumer studies showed a significant increase in sun-safe behaviors of those who used the patch (34% applying sunscreen more often, and 37% seeking shade more frequently).

my%20skin%20track%20uv.jpg

Today, La Roche-Posay goes one step further and introduces My Skin Track UV, which is the first battery-free wearable electronic device to measure UV exposure! The innovative button-sized gadget is equipped with a super-precise sensor that measures individual UV levels. The connectable device is paired with a companion app (available only for iOS devices) that tracks the wearer’s exposure to known environmental hazards, such as pollution, pollen, and humidity, offering personalized tips and skincare recommendations regarding the health and safety of their skin! The app also calculates your max sun-stock, which is your own, personalized, maximum daily allowance of UV exposure, based on your skin tone and the UV index!

Created by L’Oreal’s leading skincare brand La Roche-Posay, the precise sensor measures individual UV levels, and the companion app also tracks exposure to pollution, pollen and humidity.

My Skin Track UV is designed to seamlessly integrate into daily lives and routines of its wearers, measuring both UVA and UVB exposure. The sensor is activated by the sun, and programmed to share information with the user’s smartphone via NFC. The app integrates with Apple HealthKit and provides instant status updates while storing up to three months of data.

Watch the video from La Roche-Posay

The waterproof sensor is 12mm wide and 6mm high, and has a wire clip that can be used to attach it to clothing and accessories. The My Skin Track UV is available exclusively at select Apple Stores and apple.com, and retails for $59.95.
