Beauty Talk with Dr. Kan Cao, Founder of Bluelene skincare
DBG: What inspired you to become a part of the skincare industry?
Dr. Cao: I was inspired to create Bluelene after discovering the ground breaking ingredient methylene blue. I found that methylene blue is a super antioxidant offering significant skin health benefits like reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and increasing collagen production. I was inspired to bring this superstar ingredient to the beauty industry to offer results driven skincare at an affordable price.
DBG: How many years have you been in the skincare business?
Dr. Cao: One and a half years!
DBG: How did you get your start?
Dr. Cao: Forming a University startup company with the support from Maryland Innovative Initiative Fund and National Science Foundation small business grant.
DBG: What is your skincare regimen? What are some of your favorite products to use?
Dr. Cao: I like to keep my skincare routine simple. I apply a gentle cleanser along with Bluelene’s Daily Moisturizer in the morning along with our newly launched Eye Cream. At night I follow the same steps but incorporate our Night Cream to provide double hydration and recharge the skin while I sleep.
DBG: What is your next step in your field?
Dr. Cao: We are working on expanding Bluelene to offer a luxury collection that is set to launch later this year which will be available online and in select retailers.
DBG: Do you have any skincare tips and/or you’d like to share with our readers?
DBG: How can our followers/readers reach you?
