Jane Wurwand, Building the Business Series: Passion Meets Purpose

December 10, 2017

This is part two of our story when classic entrepreneurship and a passion for skin care changed an industry forever. In Los Angeles, 1983, Jane and Raymond Wurwand saw a gap in skin therapy education and founded Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute; which are game-changing brands within the professional skin care industry.

In this episode, Jane shares her advice to new entrepreneurs, the importance of developing a skill set, and “if you can see the greatest pain in an industry, you’ve just spotted the greatest opportunity.” Jane also takes us on the journey of how she established FITE (Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship), a social impact initiative that helps women and girls on the path to entrepreneurship by providing access to education, vocational training, small loans and leadership skills.www.joinfite.org

In 2016, President Obama appointed Jane a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship, one of a prestigious group of America’s top entrepreneurs who work with the Federal Government to help develop the next generation of entrepreneurs both at home and abroad.


Jane Wurwand, Building the Business Series: The Dermalogica Story

December 4, 2017

This is the story of where entrepreneurship and a passion for skin care come together and an industry is changed forever.  It started in Los Angeles, 1983, where Jane Wurwand, a tenured, United Kingdom-trained skin therapist new to the American "esthetician" industry, recognized that continuing skin therapy education was practically non-existent in the United States.  After opening a small classroom in Marina del Rey, California under the name The International Dermal Institute (IDI), Jane invited licensed skin therapists to the postgraduate training to help make them competitive in the business.

In 1986, Dermalogica was born, as it didn’t take long for Jane to realize no product line embraced her belief of skin health as opposed to "beauty," so she developed her own. The vision was clear – a product line free of common irritants and artificial ingredients and most importantly one that would improve skin health. With more than 100,000 skin therapists trained and available in over 80 countries, Dermalogica products are the number one choice of skin care professionals and consumers worldwide.
