Women have the power to yield huge returns for themselves, their families and their communities. If given the chance to achieve financial independence, they can help entire countries generate a significant competitive advantage in the world market.


It was with this knowledge that in 2011, Jane Wurwand, Founder, Co-Owner and Chief Visionary of Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute, launched FITE with the goal to help 25,000 women entrepreneurs around the world start or grow a business, helping to better their communities, their families and themselves.


To date we have helped over 70,000 women across the world in 100 countries.


FITE has become a staple part of the Dermalogica Foundation programme. The investments made into FITE since its inception continue to be reinvested as loans as repaid and the number of women benefitting from FITE growing every day.


We believe women and girls have the power to make the world a better place. We invest in their potential by creating pathways to entrepreneurships:



we connect her to capital

FITE believes that women have the power to yield significant returns for themselves, their families and their communities. By providing women entrepreneurs with access to small loans and business resources, we lend women a hand up, and help fill the gap between what they can do and what they need.


we help her grow through education

FITE gives girls the knowledge to succeed as entrepreneurs. We believe investing in girls’ education is one of the most effective ways to fight poverty, bolster poor communities, and foster economic growth and stability. Through support of global opportunities to further girls’ education, vocational skills and leadership programmes, FITE helps girls pursue their dreams.


help her make an impact

FITE invests in local grassroots initiatives to help women become leaders, impactful citizens and champions for pressing social issues. Strengthening pathways to entrepreneurship is an important step in helping to change the perceived value of women and girls in society. By connecting our programmes with on-the-ground efforts, FITE wants to help the women we support amplify their voices and address human right issues in their communities.



Since the inception of Dermalogica and FITE (Financial Independence through Entrepreneurship), we have supported women and girls around the world. Now, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Look Good Feel Better (LGFB), bringing together our expert knowledge and skills to help women to face cancer with confidence.
