Amy Regan

CEO, Skinfix

Amy Regan’s love of the beauty industry was sparked when she was a child. Her father ran manufacturing for Estée Lauder, and she remembers the day she visited Estée’s office and saw that a woman could create an empire, raise a family, and love makeup – all at the same time.

A graduate of Princeton, she learned the beauty ropes at L’Oréal. She later graduated from INSEAD Business School and honed her marketing and retail skills at Coty, Jo Malone, and Space NK.

When Amy moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia to raise her family, she thought she had left the world of beauty behind, but fate stepped in and the future of natural skincare was within reach. She discovered the Skinfix’s 140-year-old, natural healing balm. Amy used it on her daughter’s eczema and was amazed by its healing properties. She saw a market opportunity for products that heal skin without steroids, irritants, and synthetics. She purchased the company in 2012 from the great, great granddaughter of the original inventor, a British pharmacist.

Today, Skinfix is bringing together the two hottest-growth categories in skincare – natural and dermatologist-recommended. Amy’s vision for Skinfix and her focus on proving the clinical efficacy of its formulas is setting the standard for the future of naturals. Skinfix formulates with a potent blend of natural, FDA-approved over-the-counter (OTC) actives, healing oils, and botanicals – and leaves out ingredients like parabens, sulfates, silicones, synthetic fragrance, steroids, and known allergens.

In four years, Skinfix has become a beauty editor favourite, winning 22 major beauty awards. It is actively involved with the American Dermatology Association, and Skinfix products are vetted and approved by the Dermatology Review Panel. The Skinfix Eczema Collection is approved by the National Eczema Association.
