Dr. Dhaval Bhanusali and Rhode founder Hailey Bieber
Dr. Dhaval Bhanusali
Hailey Bieber’s new skincare line, Rhode, launched this week. The model and wife of pop sensation Justin Bieber debuted five products (all under $30), most of which sold out within hours. Clearly Bieber’s celeb status and 45 million Instagram followers helped drive demand, but so too did her dermatologist in residence – the “formulation king” – Dr. Dhaval Bhanusali.
Dhaval G. Bhanusali, Dr. B to his patients, is a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. He is also a millennial who is disrupting the $100 billion global skincare industry by bringing an innovative high-tech twist to the traditional practice of dermatology, while at the same time helping formulate clean, effective and affordable products for celebrity skincare lines like Bieber’s. He is also a formulator behind Martha Stewart’s upcoming CBD-infused skincare brand 86 Elm, set to launch in the coming months.

“Dr. Dhaval is a very knowledgeable and open-minded dermatologist,” says Stewart. “I have worked with him for more than 2 years on the development of a very extraordinary skincare program, which incorporates CBD and other unique and effective ingredients.”
A Large and Growing Global Market
It’s no surprise that new players continue to enter the skincare game. The global skincare industry is on the rise; estimates project the industry will be worth over $200 billion by 2026. This growth is due in large part to the spending power of today’s younger consumers, who are increasingly prioritizing skincare. In fact, a recent survey revealed that 41% of Gen Z said that skincare was their top beauty item.
And while Stewart and Bieber may have different skincare goals, they do have one important thing in common. Dr. B is a master formulator behind both lines.
Making Customized Prescription Skincare Affordable
Before engaging with Bieber and Stewart, Bhanusali had already left his mark on the traditional dermatology industry. His “aging is a privilege that should be celebrated” ethos drove him to create a platform that allows him to scale his expertise into a thriving business while democratizing skincare …….
