Comments:

Founder Jane Wurwand is a major role model for women in business, and she’s taken on another project to inspire more females to follow in her footsteps—FITE. This new global empowerment platform powered by her firm and Kiva.org, a nonprofit microfinancer, fosters financial independence for women entrepreneurs by providing access to small loans that will help them start or grow a business. In just two years, FITE aims to help at least 25,000 women in this capacity, and to that end, consumers can buy FITE-sleeved Dermalogica products and use a code inside to activate a donation from the company to fund a business.


Wurwand recently completed a tour of South Africa to share Dermalogica’s message of skin health with professionals and to drum up support for FITE through interviews with popular personalities in South African media. The team traveled to Kwa-Zulu Natal to meet the first recipients of FITE loans.


In other news, The Step Up Women’s Network, a national nonprofit membership organization dedicated to connecting and advancing women and girls, recently honored Dermalogica at its eighth annual Inspiration Awards event, which was held at the Beverly Hilton on June 10.


While Wurwand works hard to empower women and make their skin glow, Dermalogica gets noticed by guys too. In fact, its Concealing Spot Treatment took home top honors in the Men’s Health 2011 Grooming Awards.
