Anna: Hi there I’m Anna Murray and today we’re going to be talking about skincare, and I have with me Sara Valle from Hair by Manny cosmeceuticals skincare.
So Sara tell us about Hair by Manny and how you got started in the business.
Sara : Hair by Manny is made skincare cosmetically skincare range. I got involved in the industry probably a good 15, 16 years ago. Now I was introducing a lot of Australian made products into salons, when Australian products weren’t that well received throughout salons at that stage, and you know saw an absolute need was out there for a really good Australian skincare range that was sold only through salons, bringing clients back into those salons and getting a really good skin analysis done on the customer, and of course delivering a really good result on the skin.
Anna: so Sara can you tell us what sort of customers you have please?
Sara: we supply the beauty salons with lots and lots of training and lots of really good professional products and then we have a retail range which I would then recommend for you to take home that is really where you going to get the absolute maximum out of working with these types of ingredients.
Anna: Any age group can use the products or is there a specific age?
Sara: absolutely Anna, absolutely any age group. You know they are very universal this is why they were developed in this way so that you don’t have to have you know a male range, female range sensitive skin you know, dry skin. It’s all about the ingredients and ingredients that we deliver to the skin which are going to make the difference. So it’s going to be suitable for all skin types, for all age groups. You know we’ve got as young as 14, 15 year olds using some of our product range, at the other end we’ve got 95-year-olds.
Anna: 95 that’s…
Sara: I was talking to a 95-year-old lady yesterday and she has actually Suggested that she use, she’s an outdoor lady and she said that she was absolutely loving it because it was… Protection and moisturizing…
Anna: so that was stopping you getting burned
Sara: absolutely because of the type of ingredients… We do work with Glycolics and lactics and vitamins. And so it is very very important that we do always protect skin. And you know Anna all the beauty products that are out there I always say the most important product in the whole range meets your protection.
The Sun not only does it burn our skin but it would age or skin. And so does that you know if you got the protection that’s UVb it’s going to protect you from burning. But when you’ve got the UVa that’s actually going to protect you from the aging because it’s the UVa that goes deep into the skin that actually damages the cells, and then causes the aging.
Anna: now you were telling me earlier that you get a lot of emails from people thanking you for the difference that their skin has made. Why don’t you tell us about that.
Sara:… I guess that’s what we’re all about. I love making a difference on people’s skin. That’s what I’m here to do. I really take tremendous pride and tremendous enjoyment when people come in and says my skin feels so different. We’ve even had email several times same even after one application, oh my goodness I felt such a difference on my skin. And you know even these therapists when they come on board, we’ve obviously send them some samples and we have the same feedback from them as well.
So we know that we can share that on with their clients. And that’s what we’re all about.
Female testimonial: hi my name is Wendy I was going from beautician to beautician looking for something to help my aging 45-year-old skin and when I went to one beautician she recommended B3 from Hair by Manny . And it was a beautiful product. So I keep using all of Hair by Manny’s products now and I’m loving the fact that my skin feels much more hydrated from using the products.
Anna: now earlier on I was checking to Sara about the Internet and how it’s great how we can access so much information, but something came up about people with self diagnosing their skincare problems over the Internet. And so I wanted to ask you Sara why is it important when someone uses your products and goes through a beauty therapist as opposed to self-diagnosing on the Internet?
Sara: well because we work with such active ingredients we really need to go to the specialist, the true specialist that’s going to give you true comprehensive skin analysis and prescribe the right type of product for your skin. When you get on the Internet very often we prescribe something that’s not going to be right for our skin and a long-term could create you know you get problems within our skin raw products for that skin, irritation and that’s what we need to avoid. It is just like when you go to specialist you expect that he’s going to prescribe the right medication for you it is the same we’re asking when working with cosmeceutical’s, active ingredients. Therefore go to the professional, get there professional opinion advice and use the regime what they prescribe.
Anna: Sara you are telling me about an older client of years have some challenges with some scarring and that your products have helped, can you just tell us about that please.
Sara: she’s an old lady who had major surgery, and post operatively she used all of our vitamins actually twice a day religiously she said, absolutely religiously from the beginning to four months later the difference is absolutely blown away her doctors and herself.
Anna: that’s amazing and I am showing some photos there on the screen the difference that it made to her. At that age that’s pretty impressive.
Sara: oh absolutely
Anna: what about like you were saying all different skin types, what about people who say got acne and things like that?
Sara: we work with ingredients that are going to target your acne as well control that oil flow, and just we also work with another modality which is a skin rolling needle, which also slows down the oil flow as well. And so there’s lots of way that we can target our skin concerns. You know antiaging is also a huge demand out there, we work with Apple Stem cell technology which is very new test trailer. We were actually the first Australian company to bring that technology here to Australia. What that does it feeds the nutrients back into the cells, and so therefore it’s going to exfoliate a little bit quicker because your not always going to get that brighter skin all the time.
So we are very much into solving, correcting the problem, preventing and of course targeting.
Anna: so Sara why should people purchase Hair by Manny products specifically?
Sara: well I guess if you’re really serious about making a change within your skin then these are the type of ingredients that you need to be looking out for. We have all of those really great ingredients that are going to make a difference on the skin. There’s lots of products out there it is very very confusing to the general public, what am I going to buy what you put on the skin, I don’t know I’m so confused.
But you know I always go back to go to the professional, work with our ingredients that will cut the difference. Because were not about just putting creams on the surface of the skin and having them sit there all day. We are about working with ingredients that go down into the dermal layer and that is where the change is going to make the difference. That’s you know where you’re going to be able to renew and restore, and replenish rejuvenate although skin cells.
Anna: so Sara customers who are watching this video how did they get a hold of Hair by Manny range?
Sara: Anna they just need to email us or they could make a phone call through to our office, and we will then direct them to the closest office.
Anna: and is that just in Australia, was about international people are there overseas as well?
Sara: international and Australia.
Anna: all right and beginning therapists what do they need?
Sara: exactly the same way, again they can email or they can phone us. And then we’ll send them out a comprehensive information pack about the Hair by Manny skincare range , how best it to work within their salon, and we also present with a full presentation.
Anna: sounds good all right will thank you so much Sara for sharing with us all about skincare, and we’ll see you next time by for now.
