Straight Up Skincare Project

Changing world, changing skin

E45 is on a mission to make skincare less complicated.

Introducing The Straight Up Skincare Project

The modern world can be tough on the skin. Hectic lifestyles may mean that people spend less time looking after their skin, and busy lives can expose customers to more triggers. Whatever their lifestyle, you can help the customers at your pharmacy to manage dry and condition skin.

See how we’re engaging your customers in The Straight Up Skincare Project starting with an exclusive three-day clinic in central London where customers can get free consultations with dermatologist and expert advisors.

Become a destination for Straight Up Skincare advice:

The Straight Up Skincare team will be running a free, dedicated pharmacy training programme to help you identify dry skin and condition skin, what triggers a flare-up and appropriate treatments options. It can give you more knowledge and confidence to provide practical, no nonsense advice in your own pharmacy to customers who face the daily challenges of dry and condition skin.
