Skincare research is a jungle of misinformation.
Studies get commissioned by brands with inherent bias. The reported results are subjective. The “clinicals” get taken out of context. And nowhere is this gross lack of legitimate study as apparent as in the research on skin of color, which barely makes it into the textbooks.
As both new and old brands jump on the now-trending bandwagon of skincare for colored skin, most are simply adding token brown models to their campaigns and “brownwashing” existing products— changing up an ingredient, putting “for dark skin” on the labels, and claiming to target problems like hyperpigmentation.
Lion Pose is here to lay down the new laws and rule for brown.
We believe that science can solve for our unique skincare issues. We’ve quite literally seen it happen.
But there are only so many dermatologists to go around. With 9,600 dermatologists in the US—that’s 31,000 people to each dermatologist. It’s just not possible for everyone to get tht level of dedicated treatment. And the sad fact is, many doctors aren’t trained in the unique needs of colored skin.
But ours are. We've assembled a board of Harvard dermatologists who specialize in skin of color issues.
Everyone should have access to the kind of daily-use products that used to be prescription-only territory and give you a 100% clear path to success.
Our results are as powerful as our opinions. Our science is in your face and on your face. And our shades are our greatest strength.
We rule for brown. And we want to hear you roar.
Our Founding Team
We’re two loud and proud brown skinned girls who knew the struggle with dark marks was real. And we threw whatever we could at it—visits to high-priced derms offices, private laser light shows aimed at our skin.
Eventually, we found products that worked (yay!). But we know not everyone has the time or money to go all in on fixing their skin like we did.
We want to democratize access to pharmaceutical-lite products that are truly effective for treating the problems that plague our skin of color. That’s why we started Lion Pose. And we’re here to slay.
