About Dermalogica: the number 1 choice of skin care professionals worldwide.
Dermalogica revolutionised the skin care industry when it emerged into the marketplace in 1986 with innovative formulations, which excluded common irritants, including SD alcohol, lanolin, mineral oil and artificial colours and fragrances. Jane Wurwand developed the products to better support the advanced curriculum she had developed a few years earlier for The International Dermal Institute, which she also founded. Wurwand led the company’s growth from an idea to the world’s most-requested professional skin care brand. Dermalogica is an expertise brand for products and skin treatments rooted in education.
Dermalogica today is sold in more than 100 countries worldwide and trains over 100,000 professionals per year around the globe.

Sally pioneered education in aesthetics and developed the first suite of qualifications in partnership with CIBTAC. Whilst Sally’s legacy will always remain intact, SGI continue to pioneer in the industry. During lockdown it was SGI who worked tirelessly with CIBTAC to develop Level 5 qualifications in Microneedling and Skin Peel Treatments. We design and develop our own technologies including a skin needling pen, range of lasers/devices, and formulate our own skincare and peels - everything is made by us in Great Britain. Dija Ayodele, Pamela Marshall, Andy Millward, some of the industries brightest lights and biggest stars were trained by Sally, and we thank them for recommending people to train with us. In addition, prestigious brands, including Dermalogica, have chosen SGI as their education partner, for both their staff and their stockist. We care passionately – those that truly know us understand, for us there is no compromise, our provenance speaks for itself.

Skin Philosophy Training prides itself on imbuing students with an in-depth knowledge of the science of the skin and creating a high standard in the next generation of therapists – whilst creating a welcoming and supportive environment to learn in.
Skin Philosophy Training is dedicated to providing high quality, product-neutral education including the latest and most advanced skin treatment techniques. This has spread nationwide and consists of training centres across UK & Ireland, delivering the highest levels of qualification in education of skin available. Graduates praise the small group sizes and the thorough training that gives them confidence to launch into the world of aesthetics.
Skin Philosophy Training was founded by Annalouise Kenny in 2011. The industry of aesthetics was expanding rapidly and there were, at the time, no schools focused on educating therapist in advanced treatments like laser, peels and needling.
Annalouise by the age of 25,had been working in the industry 7 years, worked around the world and had already set up 3 successful clinics, concentrating on just advanced skin & laser treatments. During this set up all staff were provided with supplier training, 3 hours in length, to then treat clients with laser and peels. Annalouise regularly trained her staff and recognised that there was not enough training provided independently. Leaving her career in 2011, she set up the first ever school focused only on training therapists in advanced laser & skin treatments.
Founded by Caroline Hirons, Skin Rocks is the destination for knowledge that’s vast, guidance that’s clear and products that work. With a lifetime of skincare knowledge, Caroline is known for sharing her honest insights and products that cut straight to the result — Skin Rocks is an extension of that. We make skincare make sense, putting you at the heart of everything we do and empowering you to look after your skin.
An edit and a shortcut, an education and a guide, a community and a movement, we work with scientists, formulators, brand owners and clinicians that make the most effective products on the market. We’ll only recommend what’s right for your skin type. We’ll make sure we explain everything clearly. We’ll tell you when you don’t need something. And we’ll never promise that a product will do something it doesn’t do. Knowledge is power, after all.
