Survey finds most Americans do not protect skin against pollution

February 24, 2017

Most Americans do not seek protection for the skin against airborne pollution and other environmental stressors, according to recent survey results.

The survey found that 33% of the slightly more than 2,000 Americans polled purchased skin care products to protect their skin from pollution and environmental stressors, including traffic and car exhaust, factors and power plants and secondhand smoke, although a majority understood the risk of the exposure to the chemicals, according to a press release from H2O+ Beauty.  The survey was conducted by Morning Consult on behalf of H2O+ Beauty in January 2017.
