The 2013 Face of Beauty — Elle Morris on Ethnic Skin Care

Our beauty guru Elle Morris’ latest article for GCI examines the changing faces of the skin-care market — specifically, growing markets of ethnic women. Elle’s research focuses on ethnic skin’s unique physiological needs and how efficiently addressing those needs can help marketers create a more personal connection with women of color.

  • African-Americans prefer natural and organic ingredients in their skin-care choices? Marketers can create a more personal connection with these consumers by selecting wholesome ingredients and celebrating them on the packaging.
