Specialist skincare treatments gain popularity

In the yearly report released by Euromonitor, it has been revealed there’s been a marked increase in consumers seeking beauty therapists and clinics who offer specialised cosmetic treatments and products. The report identified that this is primarily due to a desire for individuality; with people seeking products, services and experiences tailored exclusively for them.

In Australia, dermaviduals has been offering tailored skincare products and treatments for over two years and now enjoys distribution in over 100 salons and spas across the country. Reika Roberts, Managing Director of derma aesthetics, dermaviduals distributor, says of the findings, “We identified the trend towards customised skin solutions back in 2010. After extensive research to find a trusted and proven brand, we made the decision to distribute dermaviduals in Australia. We couldn’t be happier with that decision and this report confirms we are on the right track in terms of anticipating the ever evolving needs of our customers.”

dermaviduals is a fully customised skincare range developed by leading German scientist Dr Hans Lautenschläger. The product formulations are based on the principles of corneotherapy and specifically target maintenance of the natural skin barrier and the prevention of premature ageing. Every dermaviduals product can be customised to the needs of the individual."
