Dermalogica have joined the British Beauty Council as Patron.
We spoke with Candice Gardner, Dermalogica’s Education Manager – Digital and Content, to find out more about the business, what excites them about the beauty industry, and why they wanted to become a Patron of the British Beauty Council.
Who are Dermalogica, and what work do you do?
Dermalogica is a global skin care brand that offers professional-grade skin care education, products, and services to skin therapists and customers alike. Our product line grew out of a desire to provide skin therapists with best-in-class skin care products and skills-based education.
Created in 1986 by Jane Wurwand, Dermalogica was the first skin care brand to focus on skin health by omitting artificial fragrances, colours, and common skin irritants. By elevating the importance of healthy skin over beauty, Dermalogica quickly became the industry’s go-to brand for exceptional, professional-grade results. You can now find us in over 100 countries and recommended by more than 100 000 skin therapists.
As Education Manager – Digital and Content, I manage development of all our education and training course materials for the UKI, oversee development and delivery of digital learning, and am UK technical lead on product, service, and professional practice standards.
What parts of the British beauty industry excite you?
I get a proper kick out of new skin science and research data. This brings together a real enthusiasm for results driven innovation in product development and my love of education and learning. I also love the fact that our industry is constantly evolving. The key is for us to make sure qualifications and vocational training keep pace so that future professionals can maximise their opportunities and drive sector growth.
Why did you want to become a Patron of the British Beauty Council?
