Jacqui Dunal's determined approach to finding the finest skin care and health products for her own well-being led to her discovering fish-derived, biologically active, collagen-hydrate products that truly penetrate the skin's multiple layers to replenish collagen-depleted cells due to aging. After five short years in the cosmetics industry, in 2014, viewers on five continents and more than 500 accomplished industry professionals voted Dunal a leader in the skin care industry and the winner of Multi Media Productions' prestigious and highest award, the Silver Telly.
What do you see as an upcoming trend in the industry?
A more holistic approach to beauty. Not only do clients want to look healthy, they want to be healthy. Incorporating natural products into a skin care line that supplements and supports health and beauty, both externally and internally, is paramount.
Is there a particular ingredient that you feel is a "super" ingredient? If so, why?
Without a doubt, fish-derived, biologically active collagen leads the pack in the European skin care market; North America still has to catch up. The triple helix structure that is maintained in the products ensures that the hydrate is still alive when applied. It is a living product! Small protein clusters in the collagen complex let the skin's multiple layers absorb it. Larger chunks of protein, which are often found in other skin care products, cannot fully penetrate the skin's layers. Size is the major and telling difference between the products I promote and others on the market.
Other than your products, what are the greatest assets and strengths your company offers?
The personal touch; taking the time to engage with clients on a one-on-one basis. I spend time with new clients, try to understand their needs, and guide them through the products that are appropriate for their skin types.
How and where do you find inspiration?
Every time I get a call or an e-mail from a new client, I feel honored that they would like to talk to me about something as personal and precious as their skin and how to care for it properly. Their calls and trust in the products I promote remind me why I started my skin care business.
