What you need to hear about the beauty industry

With so many people out there selling snake oil to the willing, it’s great to hear a podcast that tells you the truth. If you believe a cream will do the same thing as a face lift then you should listen to why it won’t from these guys.

Freeing us from the shackles of advertisers

I have seen a few people who say that having 2 men talk about products that are marketed primarily at women is condecending, or even mansplaining. I don't see how having scientists who play a roll in developing these products explaining both how they actually work, and how marketers mislead consumers, is condecending. In my opinion, it is much more condecending for marketers to tell their consumers that a microgram of Vitamin X is going to cure us from aging, and rely on us being too ignorant to seek out the science behind their claims. If anything, this podcast empowers women by giving us real information that beauty companies won't give us, meaning that it will be more difficult for them to advertise to us that their new wonder ingredient will cure us from all our socially engineered insecurities. Moreover, the information is presented in a very easy to understand and engaging way. Thank you for making this podcast!
