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. Dermalogica offers professional-grade skin care education, products, and services to skin therapists and customers alike. Whether you need a quick pick-me-up or a more in-depth treatment, Dermalogica's professional skin services are completely tailored to your skin's needs.

Dermalogica products are made in the USA, with its global operations based in Carson, just south of Los Angeles. To learn more about Dermalogica, please visit dermalogica.co.uk

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.
