Dermalogica is a member of SAAHSP

Dermalogica was an education company before we became the number one brand for professional skin care. Education has always been the heart of our business and the professionals we educate makes that heart beat every day in their skin centres. In the words of Jane Wurwand, Dermalogica’s founder and chief visionary; “we are the last industry that physically touches people”. That is an incredible gift we can give to our customers every day and that is something that should be highlighted and celebrated.




Dermalogica aims to offer our skin centre business partners with education that is not only focused on product knowledge but rather education to uplift industry skills and expertise. The customer of today researches brands before she / he walk through a skin centre’s doors and it is therefore to every skin centre owners benefit to invest in education. The skin centre that educates their consumers will gain loyal consumers that feel the value in their brand/s versus feeling as if they are “pushed” into purchasing a brand and most probably never return to the skin centre.


That is why Dermalogica has decided to become a corporate member of SAAHSP and accredit our education workshops with CPD (continual professional development) points. Dermalogica has always offered training free of charge to all our skin centre business partners and colleges but we needed to take it to the next level by partnering with industry leaders to ensure the quality of education and skills developed in our skin care industry.


By committing to the SAAHSP CPD programme, you demonstrate:

  • Commitment to a level of excellence.
  • Passion in your occupation.
  • Desire to constantly improve.
