In the competitive world of beauty, raising the bar is what we do best. To meet the demands of our clients and our skin experts this year, our conversations have been around sustainability, diversity, organics, and natural cosmeceuticals. These are the trends and where our industry is heading - and we want to be at the forefront of that change…
“For some time now, we’ve seen the growing consumer demand for natural skincare, and with our ethos being to deliver long-lasting results for our clients, our search has taken over 2 years to find a professional cosmeceutical natural range that can deliver this. We believe we’ve found the answer in Prologic® – a NZ made, natural, ethically sourced and sustainably produced range of skincare that works!” says About Face Co-owner & Founder Marianna Glucina.
Prologic® is a skincare line, created by award-winning, Wellington-based beauty therapist, Rachel Robertson. Owner and founder of Prologic Skin Care, her story is a labour of love that began back in 2011. As a hands-on skin therapist for 21 years, Robertson has seen her fair share of skin concerns and wanted to create a brand as natural as she could, where each ingredient used, made a positive impact on the skin at every level. Armed with a degree in cosmetic chemistry, her insider knowledge of ingredients, and how they work in the skin, saw her perfect a skincare range formulated with natural ingredients that meet the needs of all skin types.
“About Face & Prologic is a match made in heaven – About Face is a locally owned and operated brand renowned for delivering the highest quality services to improve your skin and reduce the signs of aging without the use of botox and fillers - partnering with Prologic ® an NZ made, natural & professional-grade range” says Group Marketing Manager Nathalie Jamieson
The name behind the brand is a combination of Pro - meaning professional only; meaning the range can only be prescribed by expert skin therapists, such as About Face. Logic - referring to the logical use of active, clean and natural ingredients that deliver visible results.
The science behind Prologic's formulations is Corneotherapy, its core principle being the repair and maintenance of the skin barrier," says founder Robertson. Each product targets specific concerns and contains all the heavy hitters when it comes to lifting and firming the skin. From vitamins A and C, to hyaluronic acid, Argireline (touted as the natural form of topical botox), and the peptide matrixyl, as well as pure antioxidant plant oils. Each formula has been carefully chosen to support and prevent premature ageing, and sensitivities and the products are vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, palm oil-free and free of parabens, emulsifiers, sulfates, silicones and mineral oil.
