A TRUE PIONEER
Salomone's career began as a makeup artist in the late 1970s. “I started with an investment of just 10 dollars in business cards. I never dreamt it would grow to this scale,” she previously stated.
Popular for her engaging personality and 'it-girl' insight, clients begged her for facial services. In 1978, she became one of the first-ever licensed aestheticians in the United States, and, soon, began defining a whole new way to assess the skin, determine treatment strategies, and develop new facial techniques – what would become the industry-changing SkinReading® system.
SKIN CARE INNOVATOR
She opened advanced aesthetics learning centers across the United States, and soon saw a need for a professional line of skin care products that would meet her standards. The Bioelements product line launched in 1991, including the exclusive Custom Blending system, to transform professional treatments. Since that time, the company has spearheaded some of the most industry-changing formulations, including: probiotics, calcium, pollution-neutralizers, amino acid, and white truffle.
Bioelements will continue to set the ame goal as the one Salomone a set over 25 years ago – to create products and treatments that target the uniqueness and range of all skin types and concerns. As Barbara always said: "no hype, no gimmicks, and no false claims."
Many believe Salomone had a heavy and longstanding influence on the industry.
