Dermalogica began first and foremost as an education company. Since 1983 The International Dermal Institute has been dedicated to providing postgraduate education to licensed skin care professionals. Today The International Dermal Institute operates more than 30 training centers teaching advanced curriculum to Dermalogica skin therapists worldwide.
Continuing with this mission the Dermalogica Foundation recognizes and supports the vital education of women and girls around the world so that they can achieve Financial Independence Through Education.
Dermalogica has partnered with WorldSkills International, a not for profit membership association that helps to promote vocational education and training worldwide. Learn more about this partnership and how Dermalogica is continuing to support and train Professional Skin Therapists.
As the leading skin care company operating in more than 80 countries, we think globally, while also acting locally. Since its founding in 1999 the Dermalogica Foundation has upheld its mission to invest in community organizations working to improve the lives of women and children. These on-the-ground programs are helping to create Financial Independence Through Empowerment.
entrepreneurship effects change
At Dermalogica, we agree with thought leaders like the World Bank and Nicholas Kristoff that women and girls are tremendous, untapped investments that yield huge returns for entire communities. When a woman develops her own sustainable business, she will reinvest up to 80% of her income back into her family, creating a ripple effect of change for entire communities.
We’ve seen it in our own industry, and committed to investing in women in every industry.
