Health, Beauty & Wellness Awards 2021 Page 45 LUX 2021 Health Beauty and Wellness Awards Created by Dr Mica Engel, AMICA Skincare uses skin-loving acids and cosmeceuticals alongside botanicals, vitamins and minerals to create a fusion of incredible active ingredients that help smooth and brighten ageing skin, or calm and hydrate problematic skin. All products are tested on willing clients in Cosmetica London, so both Dr Mica and her loyal clientele can vouch the effectiveness of them. AMICA Skincare Best Independent Skincare Brand - London Mar21229 Dr Mica has over 10 years’ experience in medical skincare, and has worked for some of the most prestigious clientele practices in London, including stints at Harrods and on Harley Street. Her deep knowledge of medicine, aesthetics and skincare ensures her products are some of the best on the market today. AMICA Skincare is the combination of the scientific talents of Dr Mica Engel and the business and managerial expertise of Amanda Freeburn, Cosmetica London managing director and AMICA Skincare co-owner. In 1994, Amanda qualified in hairdressing, beauty therapy and cosmetology from North Devon College. She went on to manage some of the most prestigious spas around the globe, from the world famous Relais & Châteaux hotel group in Canada, to a luxury spa on the tropical island of Bermuda. She gained a wealth of experience and understanding of people’s needs and expectations. Both Dr Mica and Amanda’s aim is to ensure that each client’s experience at Cosmetica London is relaxed, welcoming and most of all, enjoyable! Designed to work alongside the non-invasive treatments carried out at Cosmetica London, AMICA Skincare provides an easy and effective skincare routine for patients. The cruelty-free brand has a very eco-friendly stance, refusing to use animal by-products or those that have been tested on animals. To ensure optimal freshness and potency, it manufactures its products more frequently and in smaller batch sizes, and its eco-friendly manufacturing and a preference for plant derived ingredients appeals to savvy skincare consumers. FibroBlast! Stem Cell Serum is the brand’s best-selling product, an incredible lightweight serum that targets age-related degradation, reactivating collagen and dermal activity. Boosted with Swiss apple, gotu kola and centella stem cells, this dynamic serum boosts skin density, texture and firmness and has been found to be more effective than vitamin C in clinical studies. This product along with all the others offered by AMICA are ground-breaking professional skincare solutions that favour both phyto- origin and scientifically validated actives which help protect, nourish and enhance optimal skin health. Dr Mica has meticulously evaluated and selected active ingredients which offer truly amazing skin conditioning benefits and her preference for sustainable, biodiverse and natural certified materials synergistically aligns with the progressive values of today’s skincare consumer. After what has been a very difficult year, AMICA Skincare is planning to expand is reach to a broader audience and deliver affordable and effective skincare to all of the UK. With experienced staff by Dr Mica’s side, state-of- the-art technologies and the most advanced non-surgical cosmetic treatments, Cosmetica London has attracted customers from all over London. Treatments include anti-wrinkle injections, derma fillers and skincare services, as well as facials using the AMICA brand. Ultimately, AMICA Skincare’s aim is results. Its products contain 50+ active ingredients, many of which are plant derived, so customers will be assured the skincare products they use contain a high degree of skin conditioning activity. The brand’s unique approach to clinical skincare, uniting the best of science and nature, results in effective and powerful products that help the client achieve supremely radiant, healthy skin.
