the body’s natural detoxification process.
“Our wholefoods are bio -fermented

have to work hard to get the nutrients.
“Pretty much all our salon and spa
partners come to us very well educated on
the gut- skin health correlation.
“But of course we offer an in-salon
training session and many of our accounts
have attended this. We are also soon to
launch a collection of online training
tutorials that will also be available to all of
our retail partners.”
Vitamins and dietary supplements
are another area where, as aesthetics
professionals, you can appeal to a “captive”
audience, as they will help support from
within your topical treatments.
The potential market is enormous
when you consider that two thirds of
Australian households (approximately
eight million) have purchased vitamin and
dietary supplements in the past 12 months

Created to fill a void in the professional
aesthetics market, InSkin Cosmedics

a great start to maintaining and improving
client skin health.
The range currently consists of EFAs
Max Complex, Bio- Collagen Defence 4 -in-1
and Spirulina Plus, to support healthy,
radiant, younger looking skin.
“ We wanted to launch this range as
a ‘home brand’ because the industry
has a real problem sourcing top quality
nutritional supplements and if they can,
they are often committed to carrying an
entire skincare range to support it,” says
Marie Enna- Cocciolone, CEO and founder
of InSkin Cosmedics.
“ We wanted this range to be available
exclusively to the beauty industry without
them feeling they had to commit to
thousands of dollars of skincare and, as
many consumers buy their supplements
from supermarkets and health food stores,
why shouldn’t they be getting them from
their skin therapist too? ”
Thalgo, too, is promoting a nutrition
range of marine health supplements that
assist client concerns from figure refining

skin and prevent disease and infection.
“Supplements are often prescribed for
home use in conjunction with skin revision

“A deficiency of essential fatty acids is
a primary cause of skin conditions such as
rosacea, psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and
other stress-related skin conditions.
“DMK efa+ also aids the treatment of
pigmentation problems and acne, as well
as being a wonderful anti-inflammatory for
joints, skin and body.
“EFAs have to come from a food source
and are not manufactured by the body.”
And it is this new approach to beauty
(the “inside out” beauty) that not only
forms part of the wellness revolution but
encourages a holistic approach to client
care and next level client outcomes.
