Fiona Tuck is one of the most well-respected skincare and nutrition experts in Australia. She has over 30 years of experience in the professional skincare and wellness industry and is known in the media as ‘the myth buster’. Fiona takes a forensic and often challenging approach into skincare and nutrition with an emphasis on decoding misleading marketing and fad consumer trends. Fiona's in-depth knowledge has made her a sought-after media commentator and one of Australia’s most televised nutrition and skin experts.
Fiona is a Skincare Expert, Cosmetic Chemist, Nutritional Medicine Practitioner, accredited member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society and Australian Society of Cosmetic Chemists and member of the British Dermatological Nursing Group. Her experience ranges from nutritional medicine consultations, hands on dermal therapies, industry educator to product innovation and development culminating in both brand and company development. Fiona’s extensive experience in the professional skincare industry includes roles as International Training Manager for Dermalogica, Corporate Dermal Trainer for Aspect and Cosmedix Cosmeceuticals, Managing Director of Skinstitut and founder of VITA-SOL Integrative Skincare. Her smart, savvy and intuitive approach to business led her to successfully build the brand Skinstitut, an Australian professional corrective skincare range. The Skinstitut concept of using therapeutic dosages of active ingredients minus the misleading marketing claims and astronomical mark up of regular professional skincare was an industry first, causing major disruption within the skincare arena. This resulted in a call for ingredient transparency, lower professional skincare prices and rapid consumer growth, with Skinstitut developing to become one of the most successful professional skincare brands in Australian history. Skinstitut was subsequently sold in 2017 to KKR, one of the world’s largest private equity groups.
Fiona launched VITA-SOL clinical nutraceuticals in 2018 with a mission to help build skin confidence by helping people look and feel their very best. Fiona is passionate about developing the highest quality products that she trusts and feels 100% confident in. VITA-SOL takes an integrative approach to skin health and well being believing in evidence based, practical, non-biased information and education.
Fiona believes in a no-nonsense approach to health and well-being and is passionate about bringing transparency and integrity into the skincare and wellness industry. She is a published author of the book “The Forensic Nutritionist” and devotes much of her time researching, presenting on skincare and nutrition, media commentary and building her brand VITA-SOL.
