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 and insight into future trends within the wellness industry has made her a sought-after media commentator and one of Australia’s most televised nutrition and skin experts.
Fiona is an Author, Nutritional Medicine Practitioner, Skincare Expert, member of the British Dermatological Nursing Group and an accredited member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society. 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 experience ranges from client consulting, hands on skin treatments, industry educator and commentator to product innovation and development culminating in both brand and company development.
Her smart, savvy and intuitive approach to business led her to launch and successfully grow 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 in 2018 with a mission to support skin, health and well-being. VITA-SOL uses only the highest quality ingredients inspired by the concept of nutrigenomics without the use of fillers, bulking agents, or unnecessary excipients.
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 the author of the book “The Forensic Nutritionist” and devotes much of her time consulting and presenting on skincare and nutrition, media commentary and running VITA-SOL.
