Airelle Skincare Story
Engineered by Science. Inspired by Hollywood
It seems unlikely that the grandeur and fantasy of Hollywood could unite in perfect harmony with the disciplines of the science of dermatology. Yet that’s exactly how Airelle Skincare was born. This unique skincare collaboration began when Stephen D’Amato, First Assistant Director on some of primetime TV’s hottest shows, sought the expertise of his wife, Kasey Drapeau D’Amato, an aesthetic dermatology, Physician Assistant, with more than 10 years of experience. They joined forces in an effort to fill a void in the skincare and anti-aging regimens of many of Hollywood’s celebrities, models, aestheticians and makeup artists.
Although high definition cameras deliver vivid clarity and resolution to the images they capture, they also bring out the imperfections which were never quite as noticeable; specifically imperfections in the skin.
The Airelle Skincare Mission
Stephen repeatedly observed that the transition to high definition cameras posed new challenges to actors, makeup artists and lighting technicians. Stephen observed some recurring issues: actors were spending more time in the makeup chair; Directors of Photography were spending more time lighting the actors; makeup artists were seeking results-driven skincare products with clean ingredients.
Stephen knew that makeup alone would no longer be enough to mask skin imperfections when placed under the microscope of the high definition cameras used for televisions and movie screens. Stephen sought the expertise of his wife, Kasey, a dermatology Physician Assistant, with the goal of developing a skincare line unlike anything on the market.
Stephen and I worked diligently to develop a line of natural products capable of helping people achieve their true skin potential, while also helping protect skin from environmental damage and the various signs of aging. We knew the end result had to create beautiful skin, capable of withstanding the critical eye of the modern HDTVs.
The Airelle Skincare Journey
Stephen and Kasey began searching the globe for the most innovative and effective natural ingredients. They recruited a team of the world’s leading dermatological scientists and formulators. Their mission was to develop a line of anti-aging skincare products that work fast, help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and protect the skin and help to prevent wrinkles.
I believe that being proactive and protecting the collagen is the key to maintaining healthy, vibrant, youthful-looking skin. Environmental damage is a leading cause of skin damage and collagen breakdown. If we can develop a product line that protects collagen, we can revolutionize the way the world thinks about skincare.
Stephen and Kasey collaborated with leading European dermatology experts in the field of photoaging science and top U.S.-based cosmetic chemists and formulators. They partnered with ex-pharmaceutical sales and marketing experts to help develop and refine their vision. After months of sourcing ingredients, developing formulations and testing products, the Airelle Skincare team finalized the key to helping repair aging skin, as well as helping prevent skin aging: Berrimatrix. the super blueberry proven to counteract wrinkles!
Airelle Skincare Becomes a Reality
In 2014, Airelle Skincare was officially launched to the physician market, exclusively through Beverly Hills dermatology offices. Stephen and Kasey fulfilled their goal of bringing to market a naturally derived line of anti-aging products that improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in less than 28 days and protects collagen to prevent future wrinkles. Airelle Skincare is a living testament to the unique collaboration of Hollywood and science, and Stephen and Kasey’s passion for helping people protect and beautify their skin for years to come.
