Dermalogica Names Contest Winner

Dermalogica named Robin Kelleher, skin therapist and spa owner in Daniel Island, SC, as the grand-prize winner of the company's 'My Favorite Dermalogica Product' video contest. Kelleher was among more than 400 U.S.-based Dermalogica retailers who submitted video testimonials of their favorite products. Kelleher chose Solar Defense Booster SPF 30 as her favorite product, and the winning video consisted of a montage of footage featuring her friends and family with the dates that they began using sun protection. The video was dedicated to her sister, who she lost to skin cancer. 'Protection from ultraviolet rays persists as the single most crucial message in skincare today,' says Jane Wurwand, founder of Dermalogica. 'In spite of decades of public service information, skin cancer is on the rise and people continue to risk their health by tanning. We don't moralize, but Robin's message is really important, and the story is beautifully and powerfully told.' As the grand-prize winner, Kelleher was flown to Dermalogica's world headquarters in California, where she received a day of private education at the International Dermal Institute and received a skin treatment from Wurwand at the company's brand concept store.
