5 reasons Why I couldn't get rid of my dark spots?

Darker Skin?

Have you ever wondered why it’s so hard to find skincare that works for darker skin tones? It’s not your fault. For years I struggled with dark spots. I hunkered down and I did the work.

Most skincare products on the shelves today are made with only one type of skin in mind, and it’s not yours.

While countless options exist, few of them are designed to meet the specific needs of darker skin, leading to frustration and wasted money

It’s time to uncover the truth about why mainstream skincare often misses the mark for people like us and discover a brand that’s making a real difference.

The Truth About Mainstream Skincare And Darker Skin

FACT 1: “92% of Black Women feel neglected by the Beauty Industry.”

FACT 2: “Only 4% of dermatology residency programs offer courses specifically on skin of color.”

FACT 3: “Hyperpigmentation is > 60% more frequent in darker skin, yet fewer than 10% of skincare products have ingredients effective for these concerns.”

FACT 4: “Clinical trials for skincare overwhelmingly favour lighter skin tones.”

Mainstream skincare promises a one-size-fits-all solution, however when it comes to treating dark spots on darker skin tones, these promises fall short.

The generic approach overlooks the specific biochemistry and dermatological needs of darker skin, leading to ineffective and sometimes harmful results.

Mainstream Beauty vs. VOUEE

Enter VOUEE! VOUEE is a niche skincare line dedicated to addressing this long, and wide gap that has existed for melanin-rich tones.

Here are just a few ways VOUEE is different:

Mainstream: Many products utilise lower quality ingredients so use high concentrations. This is terrible for darker skin, causes irritation, increased melanin synthesis.

VOUEE: Stable ingredients – especially Vitamin C and Retinol

Mainstream: Entry level forms of ingredients- irritation, worsens dark spots, peeling, dryness.

VOUEE: Formulate in Korea – the best cosmetic chemists and ingredient sourcing.

Mainstream: Replicated formulas, questionable sourcing.

VOUEE: Actively tested on darker skin
