WATCH: How much of your cosmetics product actually gets absorbed by the skin?
We devote this Editor’s Spotlight to insights from beauty formulation expert, Belinda Carli, director of the Institute of Personal Care Science. Here, she reveals the absorption of cosmetics products by the skin.

Carli points out that ‘not much’ of any skin care product can be absorbed by the skin to the extent that it gets absorbed by the bloodstream.

She points to the skin layers and describes their capacity to absorb cosmetics or beauty products when applied topically.
