In efforts to increase knowledge on skincare disparity and access to equitable care, Vaseline has partnered with Regina King, HUED Founder Kimberly Wilson, dermatologists, DiAnne Davis, M.D., Elyse Love, M.D. and Caroline Robinson, M.D. for a knowledgable conversation.
This campaign is apart of Vaseline’s commitment to take a stand for true equity in skincare for black and brown skin. The Equitable Skincare for All campaign’s goal is to bring attention and change to the healthcare inequities and co-create a search tool specifically focused on helping people of color identify and connect with culturally competent dermatologists.

Regina mentioned that she “feels strongly that dermatologists who are not of color need to have the desire to educate themselves on skin differences. Right now, when it comes to skin health, the industry is colorblind. Black and brown people need access to skincare that is specific to our needs.”
The “Equitable Skincare for All” Zoom discussion on March 24th at 3 pm EST / 12 pm PST with Regina King as the hostess and beauty expert Tai Beauchamp will present. According to BET, the panel will discuss the consequences of these inequities, and the importance of properly treating Black and Brown skin. There will also be an in-depth conversation about the panel’s expertise, their personal skincare experiences, and the social injustices surrounding the lack of adequate skin care professionals for people of color.
“Hued is on a mission to bridge the gap between dermatology and people of color, and Vaseline is equally as passionate about providing people of color with the resources needed,” said Kimberly Wilson, founder of HUED.
