BY: NISHA THOMAS
Angela Bassett’s radiant glow and young looking skin will soon be available for all to purchase… So, if you want to look as good as her, then you need to read this article!
The famous actress, 57, is now collaborating with her dermatologist, Dr. Barbara Sturm, on a large range of projects that are geared toward helping the black woman achieve better looking skin.
The line, which is mainly for darker skin, is called Darker Skin Tones by Dr. Barbara Sturm.
Sturm took to her Instagram account to speak on the “joint venture” with Bassett, who’d began coming to her just two years ago looking for care for her breakouts and irritation, according to WWD.
“Our premise was simple: less is more,” Sturm wrote on Instagram of their collaboration. “We wanted fewer ingredients, as little preservative as possible to maintain stability, and no harmful ingredients whatsoever (that could irritate skin that is already prone to inflammation).”
The line is preparing to launch with five products: a face cream, a rich face cream for overly dry skin and overnight protection, an enzyme cleanser, foaming cleanser and hyaluronic serum.
The prices for these products will range between $58 and $335 and it will launch in-store, as well as online, at Harrods this coming July. They are also planning to ship out the products worldwide.
Sturm’s hero ingredient is purslane. She writes on her Instagram of the herb, which she calls “the new kale,” that it “was found to have dramatic anti-inflammatory properties; anti-oxidative properties; wound healing properties (accelerating the healing of damaged skin); astringent properties; analgesic and calming properties; and [sic] as a muscle relaxant.”
Speaking highly of the products, she talks about what they can do for all consumers:
“We added a powerful set of anti-inflammatory natural compounds, delivery agents and anti-oxidants, as well as compounds that would even skin tone and deal with acne and the hyperpigmentation that it created,” she wrote on Instagram. “The result was what Angela and I believe are truly beautiful and effective products for skin of color.”
