Abstract

The purpose of this research is to determine the personal care products usage levels of the elite female basketball players according to the various variables. In order to collect data in this study, “Personal Information Form” and “Personal Care Products Usage Scale” was applied to 91 elite female basketball players who are currently active in the professional leagues of the Turkish Basketball Federation. The personal information form includes 10 close-ended demographic questions to obtain personal information and collect data on independent variables. The personal care products usage scale is an 11 item scale to determine the personal care products used by the athletes and their usage. SPSS 25 statistical analysis program was used in the analysis of the data. These data are expressed as frequency and percentage. In addition, the Chi-Square Test (x2) was conducted to determine whether the variables of income level, education status and duration of doing sports have a significant effect on the answers given to the attitude questions. There was no significant difference in the variables of Personal care products and frequency of use of athletes, education level and duration of doing sports. In the comparison by Monthly Income Level, it was determined that there was a significant difference in terms of soap, wet wipes, deodorant and make-up remover usage levels. In general, it has been determined that the level of personal care product usage is higher in athletes with high income levels.
