“I am from In2Skin, who is the distributor of Advanced Mineral Makeup and Rezenerate NanoFacial. I am also the creator of Ultraderm skincare and makeup. I spent my formative years working the medical profession and later transferred her skills and passion to the aesthetics industry. I have business partnerships with over 300 salons Australia-wide. Since starting Ultraderm in 2009 the business under her leadership has grown exponentially. I saw an opportunity to develop a range of products that supported beauty therapists’ business needs, and so created Ultraderm to showcase the most effective medical grade bioactive ingredients available.
Ultraderm is now a well recognised Australian cosmeceutical line very much a part of beauty salons and spas Australia wide selling to salons Australia-wide.”
