Get ready people of color! R&B legend Smokey Robinson,  known for his green eyes, ageless good looks and his signature voice along with his wife, Frances, have started a new skincare company called Skinphonic featuring products made for people with pigmented skin.

Smokey, who is 76 years old, and Frances, have created two lines of skincare products, appropriately named after his hit songs – “My Girl” for women and “Get Ready” for men. Both products help with cleaning, hydration, and nighttime treatment of skin. Their natural ingredients include tea tree oil, avocado oil, cucumber extract, mushroom extract, bilberry fruit extract, and vitamin A.

The products are advertised to clean pores, reduce wrinkles, heal sun damaged skin, and improve skin elasticity. The Skinphonic team included board-certified dermatologists and took 2.5 years to research and test.

Smokey and Frances wanted to create skincare products for people of color because most skincare products are created for use by everyone but are tested on only Caucasian skin.

Looking at Smokey, you would never guess he has been in the music business for over 50 years. Even Essence Magazine recently commented on Robinson’s ageless appearance. Could be he’s on to something…
