Today we are sitting down with skin therapist and co-founder of Dermalogica, Jane Wurwand! At the age of 24, Jane, an immigrant from the United Kingdom, recognized the lack of training in continuing skin therapy education in the United States. This led her to open the highly regarded International Dermal Institute, which today has 37 locations worldwide. Dermalogica was born alongside IDM to provide quality skin care that was effective and free of irritants. It is now the #1 professional skin care brand in the world.


Our conversation with Jane is motivating and inspirational, regardless of whether or not you’re a female entrepreneur. Her wisdom as it relates to trusting your inner truth and never doubting or shrinking yourself is GOLD. Jane shares her knowledge on creating a company culture, the importance of knowing your values, and building a community around your brand. Her passion and devotion for changing the conversation around labels and the idea of beauty is so refreshing. Jane also gives recommendations and tips for taking care of your skin. You don’t want to miss it!
