Abstract: There are differences between Asian skin and the skin of other races. There also differences in the skin characteristics of Asian subpopulations. These differences are important for development of new products and therapies.

Racial and genetic factors may play a pivotal part in the variability of an individual's response to topicals and cosmetics. Studies on the racial differences of skin physiology and function have been mainly focused on the differences between Black and white skin with little emphasis placed on Asian skin.
