Introducing The Melanin Experts Movement

At Urban Skin Rx®, we are committed to promoting education and advocacy for skin of color. We are thrilled to introduce The Melanin Experts Movement, a new program that will provide valuable resources to people seeking information on skincare concerns most commonly seen in skin of color.


Why We Need Melanin Experts

Training

In a 2011 U.S. survey, 47% of dermatologists and dermatology residents reported that their medical training was inadequate for skin conditions in Black people. A 2018 study showed that only 4.5% of pictures in four major general medical textbooks featured dark skin, whereas 13.4% of people in the U.S. identify as Black according to the 2019 census.

Representation

Recent data states that only 3% of dermatologists are Black (compared to 13% of the population) and 4.2% are Latinx (compared to 16% of the population), making it the second least diverse medical specialty. A lack of diversity within specialties is associated with greater healthcare disparities and poorer healthcare outcomes among patients.

WHAT IS MELANIN?

Melanin is the pigment that determines the color of your skin. Everyone’s body produces melanin from cells called melanocytes. Melanin provides some protection against skin damage from the sun and in response to sun exposure, there is an increase in the production of melanin.
