E10: Skincare Can Confusing & Misleading, We're Decoding The Language Of Skincare

Peter and Andrea decode the language of skincare by explaining various skincare terms and acronyms. They cover topics such as SPF, AHA, BHA, LHA, PHA, non-comedogenic, free radicals, pH balance, Duke parameters, peptides, and emulsifiers. They provide simple and concise explanations for each term, making it easier for listeners to understand the jargon commonly used in the skincare industry.


Understanding skincare terms and acronyms can help consumers make informed choices about their skincare products.

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and indicates how long a product can protect the skin from sunburn.

AHA, BHA, LHA, and PHA are different types of exfoliating acids with varying properties and effectiveness.

Non-comedogenic products do not clog pores and are suitable for acne-prone or combination skin.

Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause damage to cells and contribute to aging.pH balance is important for maintaining healthy skin, and products with a pH level between 4.7 and 5.75 are ideal.

Duke parameters outline the requirements for effective delivery of topical vitamin C.

Peptides are short-chain amino acids that provide building blocks for proteins like collagen and elastin.

Emulsifiers allow oil and water to blend together in skincare products.

Consumers should be mindful of marketing gimmicks and check the concentration and effectiveness of ingredients in skincare products.
