“We created Loved01 with melanin-rich skin in mind because we believe our community deserves great skincare at an affordable price.

Why Loved01

More than 40% of Americans identify as People of Color

Most brands are not formulated to address the unique skincare needs of this very diverse group.

While People of Color spend more on skincare than the average US citizen, they find fewer products that meet their needs.

47% of consumers said they typically buy beauty products at a mass-market retailer or grocery store, yet only 13% say they can easily find beauty products that meet their needs.

People of Color are underrepresented in dermatology—from teaching practices to the number of practitioners—which can lead to delays or errors in diagnosis. Find a dermatologist of color with the Black Derm Directory to help you on your skincare journey.
