Healthy, clear skin is a key component to overall health, and can affect one’s mental, emotional and physical well-being. When we’re comfortable in our own skin, it boosts our self-esteem and confidence. For those that suffer from chronic skin conditions, the journey to clear skin can be long, difficult and expensive. People are often faced with the dilemma of choosing between products that are safe, but don’t work well or dealing with the side effects of prescription medications and harsh chemicals. P&G Ventures is looking to identify products and technologies that contain a fast-moving, consumable product to treat, prevent and/or otherwise improve the symptoms of common skin conditions, including, but not limited to: acne, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, sensitive skin, and xerosis.
