Jane Wurwand is an entrepreneur one who started her business around 1986 this woman who was denied a $10,000 loan to start Dermalogica, but she had to reach deep into her own beliefs to yield what she wanted. From the moment Dermalogica found wings Wurwand has not only been on a business development mission but one that facilitated education, professional development and the eventual financial success of more than 25,000 women in the skincare industry.
These women who are now business owners themselves offering professional skin care services and those businesses in turn employ an additional 75,000 professional skin therapists in over 50 international markets since January 2011 an incredible achievement.
This Dermalogica initiative is visible to all consumers through special FITE-themed packaging for the retail sizes of five of the brand’s best-selling products: Daily Microfoliant®, PreCleanse, Skin Hydrating Booster, Total Eye Care SPF15 and Intensive Eye Repair. When the consumer goes online and enters the special numeric code printed on the FITE sleeve packaging, Dermalogica contributes $1 USD toward the microloan for a specified, qualified recipient.
So why would Wurwand take on this herculean task when she has worked so hard all of her business life only to put in front of herself another mountain to climb, for the true entrepreneur the cycle of giving back never ends, and to Wurwand it’s never a mountain only a path, “This initiative is designed to help marginalized women in the belief that women’s financial independence is a key step in creating a healthy world economy,” says Wurwand. “The skin care industry is our model, because it allows women of modest means to create stability for them, since the start-up costs are comparatively low.
From the beginning of our business, we’ve been an active part in helping women get their start. And now we’re extending the concept beyond our own industry.” For more information on this worldwide initiative, please visit join FITE.org.
