I love this podcast!

Perry and Valorie are amazing at turning science into fun and humorous facts about the beauty industry. I love how they tackle interesting beauty questions, all while fighting misinformation and helping me become a more informed consumer. Their podcast is a most welcome cure for the green/clean beauty nonsense we see today. Thank you both for your funny and informative show!
