People with skin problems are everywhere, and Skinfix, a natural brand that specializes in addressing eczema, chafing, dryness, rashes, redness and more, is expanding to reach them.
Skinfix’s roots are in England, where a Yorkshire merchant named Thomas Dixon originally concocted its formulas in 1850, and is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the home of Dixon’s great-great-granddaughter Karen Warner, who in 2006 assembled those formulas into the Skinfix line. Now owned by Amy Gordinier-Regan, a beauty industry veteran who has held posts at L’Oréal, Space NK, Jo Malone and Coty, Skinfix arrived in the U.S. last month at C.O. Bigelow and is pressing forward, with additional American distribution expected next year.
