Skincare is not a one-size-fits-all. While most skincare products nowadays are not designed for skin of colour, Dr. Vanita Rattan, a doctor and cosmetic formulator, is changing the beauty industry for the better by offering products that specifically target skin of colour issues that have not been addressed by other brands before. Through her brand Skincare by DrV, Dr. Vanita successfully released the Dr Vanita Rattan Complete Daily Range, a daily anti-aging and brightening skincare line that includes a double cleanser, hydrating toner, exfoliator, antioxidant serum, and ceramide peptide moisturiser. The range includes DermStim TM, a collagen stimulating and skin brightening complex.
“The vast majority of skincare was not designed for skin of colour. Our melanocytes are larger and easily triggered, 1 scratch, 1 bite or 1 burn and we hyperpigment. We cannot afford to use irritating ingredients and we require Tyrosinase Inhibitors, anti inflammatory ingredients and ceramides in our skincare for optimal skin. This is why I created the Dr Vanita Rattan range,” says Dr. Vanita.
Recently, Skincare by DrV also launched InZincable SPF50 Mineral Sunscreen, the world’s first invisible mineral sunscreen for skin of colour with MelaShield TM to reduce hyperpigmentation. This product became an instant bestseller after being sold out in just 6 weeks. And due to popular demand, it is now available for pre-order, with restocks in mid-October 2021.
