Skin tech firm make first international hire

Skin tech company, Cutitronics, has appointed Virginie Darteyre as country sales manager in Paris to meet growing market demand in France.

The company, which combines med-tech know-how with an in-depth understanding of the skin care industry has developed a patented suite of technologies that analyses skin condition in real time, enabling personalised advice based on specific requirements of the individual and environment.

The award-winning firm’s latest prototypes feature a hand held sensor which scans the skin while the accompanying mobile app examines contributing factors such as weather and age, to determine how best to use skincare products to achieve optimum results for the consumer.  

This allows skin care brands to open a dialogue and engage with the consumer at home, a challenge highlighted by the current global pandemic which has left many people without access to beauty counter experts. 

Darteyre’s new role will see her develop international sales for the business and will be at the forefront of the company’s growth trajectory. She brings more than 15 years’ experience in international sales, previously working in the fashion and retail industry with household names including Fruit of the Loom and Firetrap. 

Speaking on her appointment, Darteyre (pictured) said: “It has never been more important for beauty brands to incorporate new technological solutions into their strategies to meet the challenges presented by the pandemic. Beauty counters will be unable to operate as before, and spas and salons must overhaul their processes and systems to survive.

“The potential of these technologies to support independent and corporate brands is unprecedented.  Demand for this is only going to increase as consumers change the way they interact with skin care, and brands look to find new ways to engage with consumers.

“I’m looking forward to taking this innovative technology into my home market of France. I want to identify new opportunities for this one-of-a-kind product where technology and wellbeing collide. The concept and company culture really appeal to me and I can’t wait to play my role in the skincare revolution.”

Dr David Heath, founder and CEO of Cutitronics said: “It feels fitting that this is our first international presence as we unveiled one of our first Cutitron technology prototypes and accompanying software in 2019 at in-cosmetics Global in Paris.

“We look forward to being able to support brands with a permanent team member based in Paris who will be able to spearhead enquiries and business opportunities, who understands the market and has a proven track record in driving international sales.”
