The hero product in the Caroline's Skincare range, ‘Caroline’s Cream’, was originally made by Caroline in her kitchen while trying to find a solution for her own skin condition. Caroline's Cream (which was so named by a 3 year old girl), is today changing the lives of thousands of people.
People with skin conditions often lack the basics that give them quality of life, we are talking fundamental things that we can take for granted, the simple things like being able to sleep, to socialise, work, play, smile and even walk without being itchy or in constant pain. There is also the social stigma that sufferers often endure because of the visible symptoms associated with skin conditions. This impacts on peoples self esteem and is debilitating within itself.
These are the effects that people plagued with the symptoms of skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and acne must live with on a daily basis.
When Caroline achieved success from using her cream and started giving it to people to try, she began to realise just how effective it really was and as time went on she also began to realise just how prevalent skin problems were in society, affecting young and old alike.
She made a decision to share her new found remedy and used the only resource available to her at the time, $5000 credit. And the rest, so they say, is history.
From these very humble beginnings, Caroline has listed her cream as a complementary medicine and has more recently achieved national distribution with all 3 pharmacy wholesalers across Australia.
Caroline's products are now available in over 3000 outlets across the country and has recently had a significant win with the 'Priceline Pharmacy group' rolling out Caroline's products to nearly 400 stores nationally as part of their core ranging in the Therapeutic skin category.
Caroline says, 'There have been and continue to be numerous challenges along the way, indeed in an industry not for the faint hearted, an industry second only to aviation with its rigorous regulations'.
Many of these challenges have at times seemed insurmountable, but it is the constant flow of positive feedback from customers that helps Caroline maintain her focus and it is this feedback that continues to be her driving force.
Having felt the anxiety, anguish and limitations of living with a skin condition, Caroline understands the relief and happiness that finding something to ease the condition can bring. Caroline is determined to bring the same relief and joy to every single person that she possibly can.
Caroline is extremely proud to be the recipient of numerous business awards spanning over nearly a decade. 'Not bad', says Caroline, for a high school drop out'.
*Caroline has just returned from Beijing, China where she has been offered an exclusive distribution agreement with a Chinese Agency. As a matter of interest there are around 240,000 pharmacies in China, with approximately 70 million Chinese suffering from some form of eczema. Not only are the statistics staggering in China, but globally as well.
