Science communicators extraordinaire

As someone fairly well versed in my own area of science, I still have gotten roped in by the “Clean beauty” fear mongering (which has been overturned by listening). It’s one thing to be knowledgeable in your own area but another to be able to communicate to a wide audience effectively. Love the nerd factor too. Hope you can do a collab with Alie Ward on Ologies sometime-that would be a dream come true!

Omg you’re back!!!

I could cry! I was just lamenting over how much I missed this podcast, so I wandered over to the website with the hope that maybe that was still active. It was! And it had new episodes of the podcast posted!! 🤯 I’m so happy! This is the best informative source for beauty product ingredients and their efficacy. I love you, and don’t leave me again!!

I am a fan!

I am so happy the Beauty Brains has resumed the show, and the addition of Valerie to Perry’s personality is perfect. I love that they are so grounded in the SCIENCE, instead of the marketing. They advocate for safe cosmetic products which is to all of our advantage.
I look forward to every new episode, and console myself in between by listening to old ones. I hear something new every time.
Thanks Perry and Valerie!
