Mary distills her expertise to create a highly curated collection of the very best in anti-aging skincare. Each carefully crafted formula provides instant results with long-term payoff.
Mary is the formulator and founder of Mary Allan Skincare, a collection of premium skin care products founded in 2010 in Los Angeles California. A pioneer in the natural organic and non-toxic skin care movement, Mary combines her expertise in advanced anti-aging skincare, botanical chemistry and holistic aromatherapy with her love for bespoke skin care to create truly transformative products. Prior to founding her own company Mary held a series of senior roles with some of the world’s leading skincare companies including Jurlique and Dermalogica. Mary served as Vice President of Global Education for Dermalogica and the International Dermal Institute where she had oversight of 68 Countries and 32 post-graduate institutes worldwide. A highly prestigious position, considered in the industry as the gold star of post-graduate education for skincare professionals, the International Dermal Institute is also the research and development arm for Dermalogica. Prior to that, Mary was Vice President of Jurlique Retail Group USA where she was instrumental in the growth of the Jurlique brand across North America.
Prior to joining Jurlique Mary oversaw product development for a holistic skin care manufacture and got her start working for Anita Roddick, the founder of the body shop where she was responsible for running one of the family owned stores. Anita instilled in Mary the value of ethical ingredient sourcing and to this day Mary is dedicated to supporting Fair Trade and Women’s Cooperatives when purchasing her cold pressed plant oils.
Mary’s signature collection is driven by the precision of ingredients that truly make a difference on the skin and eliminating all of the other “masking agents” that are commonly used within the skin care industry.
Mary’s love for healing plant therapies is an element of all of Mary’s formulations. Mary remains close to the world of botanicals traveling to the regions where she hand selects the precious botanical actives specific to each product, it is this approach that makes Mary Allan Skin Care authentic and unique.
“When creating my formulations it’s always about skin vitality and not a false promise that skin care can magically erase wrinkles. Just like the quality of food matters for your overall health and wellbeing the same is true for the ingredients you apply to your skin. I don’t use “masking agents” otherwise known as – optical illusions, silicones, plastics, mineral oils or toxins because these ingredients do not create skin vitality. Instead you will find dermal-nutrients, patented peptides, vitamins and minerals that help reduce oxidative stress and leverage your own biological capabilities to nurture healthy, radiant skin.” – Mary
