Ex-skincare formulator turned skin nutrition educator

From plant potions to functional foods

During my 20 years as a skincare formulator, educator and author I used to wonder why so much skincare science revolved around nutrients and phytochemicals. After all, the skin isn't a stomach and has a very limited capacity to absorb nutrition yet the world of cosmetic formulation was bursting at the seams to stuff as many superfoods and vitamins into each product.

My own research led me deeper into skin-nutrition (via diet) and away from my skincare formulating lab. I knew I was onto something big.
I realised that so much of cosmetics nutrition was for marketing purposes (the more nutrients the higher the price!) and had very little benefit to the skin.

The only logical conclusion I could come to after 2 decades of study (and blood, sweat and tears) was that skin has to be fed via the diet. Not via lotions and potions.

That was when I knew I had to stop teaching skincare product formulation and start teaching skin-nutrition.

My own signature nutritional skin strategies have now been trademarked as Nutridermatology® and The Facelift Diet®
