Home' Spa and Clinic : Volume 65 May 2016 Contents BEAUTIFUL,
Once plagued by severe acne, Ashleigh Kajan
embraced holistic skincare. Here she tells why she has
brought MBK Skin (Methode Brigitte Kettner) products
and protocols to Australia.
SKIN RECHARGE CREAM:
With argireline and matrixyl
peptides among its key
ingredients, it has the
unique ability to stimulate
allowing skin to regain lost
vitality and slow the onset of
further signs of ageing.
Iworked in corporate marketing for many
years. But my true passion is the skin,
how ingredients affect and treat it, inside
and out. So in 2011 I opened Eden Spa [in
Camden, NSW] with one qualified therapist
and two apprentices. Four and a half years
later, we have 10 therapists.
I wanted a spa, where clients could
destress and feel great about themselves and
also provide a workplace without bullying
In my teens I suffered severe acne, despite
regular facials with professional products. I was
in despair. The most frustrating thing was no
therapist educated me about internal potential
acne causes or the ingredients they were using.
Eden Spa has opened up a whole new
world for me. I've pushed myself to learn
and grow, to ensure I was the most educated
business owner there is (I started studying beauty therapy in my
second year of business so I could be truly "hands-on"!), with skin
care ingredients my main point of focus.
As salon owners, my husband, Matt and I understand what our
business needs are, along with ensuring we provide the very best
to our clients. We have worked with different brands over the years
but there was something that was always missing, either amazing
products but lack of support, or amazing support but the products
didn't achieve results.
After a two-year search, we found MBK Skin (Methode Brigitte
Kettner) at Cosmoprof Las Vegas last year.
I walked past a little stand and something made me turn back
and read the ingredients, I said : This is it!"
It was quite funny as the German CEO of MBK didn't take us
seriously at first. We looked like we had just left the pool, were so
much younger than him and he had never considered Australia to
be a player in skincare.
MBK Skin was implemented into our spa last October. Our
therapists were very hesitant as there was one particular brand that
we had over 1000 clients using, and all of whom were very happy. But
by December the team and I knew we had
made the right decision when the results
were speaking for themselves. We are now
full stockists and advocates for MBK Skin.
MBK takes an holistic approach,
working from the inside out. Products
are nutritionally designed by Mrs Brigitte
Kettner, a German biologist and cosmetic
scientist, to provide the essential cell
nutrients skin requires to function properly
and rebuild cell health. Hormone and
metabolism disorders or deficiencies, and
depression often cause early ageing and
skin problems. In order to familiarise
clients with the brand and guarantee a
targeted application of our products, we
analyse the reasons for early ageing and
skin problems, along with skin mapping.
MBK combines external skin treatment
with an internal cleansing with natural plant extracts (nutri-cosmetics
(internal therapy) and food supplements. Nutri- cosmetics remove toxins
from tissues and helps balances hormones. This also supports functions
necessary for the storage and utilisation of nutrients, synthesises vital
amino acids and regulates the immune system and hormone balance.
Products have been created to provide deep, effective functional
re-education and reactivation and supply a healthy, visible and long-
lasting solution to skin functions. They are carefully formulated
to contain all the very best pioneering patented bioactives; unique
because they are packed full of pioneering ingredients rather
than just relying on a small handful. For example, you will find
oligotherapy, phytoextracts, hyaluronic acid, peptides and enzymes
in MBK products, in addition to numerous others.
MBK produces clean products: No parabens, petroleum-derivative oils
or other suspect ingredients, and uses ingredients that are scientifically
proven to work and not simply for their organic or natural status.
MBK's unique encapsulated, liposomal delivery system enables
active ingredients to penetrate through the skin barrier, in the purest
form, providing an accurate and responsive delivery system.
