Dermalogica, has announced new measures to help salon owners and therapists restart their businesses once government allows skin centres to open for treatments.
Developed in accordance with Dermalogica’s professional-grade standards, and with the safety of staff and consumers as top priority, the new measures comprise the brand’s Principles for Enhanced Service Safety and the Clean Touch Certification programme.
Dermalogica’s Principles for Enhanced Service Safety is a set of directives including the following: how to maintain physical distancing by staggering appointments and limiting entrance; wearing masks in common areas and masks and face shields during treatments; hand sanitisation, handwashing and sterilisation; as well as requirements for laundering and retail testers.
There are also detailed safety protocols that address specific touchpoints, such as pre-appointment screening; client arrival and departure; retail and common area floor services; treatment room sanitation; protective wear, and more.
Clean Touch Certification
Dermalogica’s Clean Touch Certification is awarded to skin therapists who complete free online training on the key principles and enhanced protocols. Upon completion, skin therapists will earn a certificate recognising them as Clean Touch Certified, which they can display in their skin centre, treatment room, or website. These certificates will also be displayed in Dermalogica Concept Stores.
“As science progresses, we will surely need to loosen or tighten the safety precautions,” states Dermalogica Global CEO, Aurelian Lis. “What counts is that we have defined the most appropriate steps now so that the industry can embark on the changes necessary to make facial skin care services a reality. With big business focused on digital or sitting it out, skin therapists are not willing to give up on the important industry of human touch and connection.”
