The Institute for Skin Care (ISC) said on its Instagram account on Monday that its newly launched campaign “promotes healthy skin by promoting skin pigment control.”
According to the agency, the campaign “is an important tool to help us address a disease which has been blamed for some of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world.”
Its website says:As of today, the #SkinHealthProxies campaign is launching a global #SkinCare campaign that focuses on encouraging skin care and skin care related products to the skin in a positive manner that is inclusive to everyone, regardless of ethnicity, creed, skin type or lifestyle.
This will be an important initiative for the health care industry.
The campaign, launched in collaboration with leading scientists in dermatology and the human sciences, will aim to raise awareness of what it means to care for skin, by using science, scientific research, and technology to help educate and empower communities to make healthier decisions for themselves and their families and children.
The initiative is part of a broader focus on the health benefits of skin care, said Sarah Naylor, executive vice president and chief research officer at the ICC.
“While skin disease is a growing public health issue, we know little about how the disease affects skin, the disease that it causes, and the impact that this disease can have on people’s health, so we are excited to use this exciting new tool to support the health and well-being of skin,” said Naylor.
In addition to promoting healthy skin, #SkinHoneys encourages people to wear masks.
The company recommends wearing a mask every time you get a cold or a skin infection.
A product called Skin Health Firming Serum is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory treatment for acne, breakouts and rosacea.
According to Skin Health, the serum is made from peptides extracted from the skins of both human and animal animals and was developed specifically for topical applications.
“The ingredients in this serum are the products we use most commonly to treat acne and dryness: glycerin, hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil and jojane wax,” the company wrote on its website.
Although the products are based on the ingredients that are used to treat specific skin conditions, they are designed for those who have a condition with a high frequency of pimples and rosy pigmentation (also known as “brown spots”).
The skin health products are currently available in China, the Philippines, India, South Korea, Vietnam and the United States.
Skin Health also recently launched a $30,000 crowdfunding campaign for an investigation to test the efficacy of a product called MCT Oil, which promises to help treat acne, pimples, rosias and blackheads.
If the investigation proves successful, MCT oil will reach the general population in India and Europe, the company said.
In May, the institute received FDA approval for its Skin Care Powder.
According to a company news release, Skin Care also announced the addition of its Skin Health and Skin Health Serum products to its product line.
The campaign will also be featured on the ICC’s Instagram account.
