A LITTLE ABOUT US!
I started Derma Bright Clinic in 2012 after embarking on a journey of health and awareness that began in 2003, after the birth of my son. As part of this health journey to improve my overall health I was visiting a holistic doctor and had some basic tests done, including a heavy metals test. That test showed I had off the charts lead in my body! I was stunned! Where did it come from?
As I started to do some research I had won a book from the David Suzuki Foundation entitled “Not Just a Pretty Face – The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry” by Stacy Malkan of the EWG. This book pointed to cosmetics and beauty products containing possible unhealthy ingredients including lead in lipstick. This infuriated me! How could these companies create toxic products??
Through a series of events later I found myself in front of the esthetic machines we now use. They helped me with my melasma (brown spots on my face) a result of my pregnancy, getting rid of it without the need for any more treatments. Between these two events, I decided to create a business that treats skin in a natural holistic manner while educating people around the responsible use of personal care products.
Derma Bright Clinic is a result of this journey! In 2016 I wrote “Face Your Acne”, available on Amazon, and we launched http://www.myskinsalon.com where we educate about and sell clean products. I am also known as the Queen of Living Clean, and use this as a vehicle to speak and hold workshops sharing with others how to “Clean Up Your Life!”
In 2015 our co-tenants moved and I decided to bring in a number of other like-minded practitioners under the guise of “Holistica Wellness” and have become more of a wellness centre over the last few years.
With all we do we make great efforts to provide a caring, healing and healthy environment sharing our wisdom to help our clients achieve their best and brightest skin and overall improved wellbeing!
