Ep 209 - The #DamnGood Skin Barrier-Boosting Creams We’ll Use Forever

In our first IRL interview since the Pandoozle, we fly all the way to LA to meet THE Jane Wurwand, legendary founder of Dermalogica and author of the newly released book, Skin In The Game: Everything You Need Is Already Inside You. Recording straight from their HQ in Carson, California, we meet the legend who managed to take an indie skincare spa brand and turn it into a multi-million-dollar success story, passing the torch of self-actualization to hundreds of female entrepreneurs with their education-first approach in the process.

For anyone looking for a post-pandemic reset, Jane schools us on how to tap into your own purpose, sharing the lessons she’s learned through intimate, say-what?? stories. Find out how her father’s early passing ignited a fire in Jane as a 5-year-old girl growing up in Scotland, and how a trip to Japan inspired Dermalogica’s iconic Daily Microfoliant exfoliating powder – now celebrating its 20th anniversary. Plus, find out what Jane has to say about “Clean Washing,” the one thing that still needs to change in the industry, and why to her, “Beauty” is a dirty word.
