The skin care specialists is making the step to move from its existing premises in Los Angeles to a new facility at the nearby Dominguez Technology Centre. The company has signed a ten year lease at a value of $10 million ( for a total working area that exceeds 35,000 square metres.
According to Dermalogica president Raymond Wurwand, the premises were chosen because of the carefully planning and design of the facilities that were in line with the high standards the company was looking for.
"The building design enables us to operate our business with ease and convenience," Wurwand said.
Dermalogica was founded in Los Angeles in 1986 and is currently among the world's largest professional skin-care companies. Known for its innovative ingredients, animal-free testing and results-driven products, it has an international following with consumers as well as make-up and skin-care specialists.
The new facilities are set to be completed by mid-2005 and will have an architecturally distinctive appearance that includes an abundance of natural light. Likewise the interior design emphasises natural lighting and space.
Dermalogica will bring its Los Angeles-based staff of more than 200 to the new Legacy BuildingSM in the Dominguez Technology Center mid-year 2005.
The move has been bought about due to significant expansion in the company, particularly in its international markets. This has bought about the need for bigger premises, with more of an emphasis on new product development.
Dermalogica produces a skin care system researched and developed by The International Dermal Institute. Widely used by professional skin care experts, Dermalogica markets and sells a complete range of skincare products, from facial scrubs to ant-wrinkle treatments and sun care products in over 40 countries.
