About STS

Did you know that 80% of people are wrong about their skin type?

Skin Type Solutions™ is a scientifically-derived resource developed and powered by dermatologists from around the world to provide unbiased and credible information for consumers and the beauty industry. It is based on Dr. Leslie Baumann's revolutionary skin typing system that was unveiled for the first time in her New York Times bestselling book, now in it's second edition, The Skin Type Solution (Bantam 2010). This book describes her innovative, patent-pending skin typing system and the 16 unique Baumann Skin Types®. This skin typing system is the new gold standard for skin typing in the dermatology world and has evolved from Dr. Baumann's many years of scientific study, validation, and presence at the forefront of cosmetic dermatology research.

Our goal is to empower you to make excellent skin care decisions. The first step is to correctly identify your 'Baumann Skin Type®' - one of 16 distinct skin types. The questionnaire to determine your skin type took years to perfect and scientifically validate. Do not be fooled by imitations! Dr. Baumann's proprietary questionnaire can only be found in two places:

- The New York Times bestselling book The Skin Type Solution (Bantam 2005);
- Here at skintypesolutions.com.
