Placecol Skin Care is the first group to launch wellness facials

Elma Mckenzie, an expert in the South African skin care industry, founded the award-winning Placecol skin care range in the 1980’s.  “We have gratitude towards all our loyal Placecol customers of almost 40 years who made our journey possible” says Esna Colyn, the CEO of Imbalie Beauty. 

In August 2018 our group aligned with credible wellness partners to host various wellness events nationally to empower our customers on their personal wellbeing.  The purpose of our new facial treatments is to assist our customers to look and feel uplifted.  Since the alignment with our wellness partners the group has hosted close to 50 wellness events nationally.

These new facial treatments are a build up to Placecol’s 40th anniversary in 2020 and received the stamp of approval from Elma Mckenzie, our founder. The Placecol brand continues to offer South African women the best skin care products for their skin, we remain true to this promise. 

During April and May 2019 our Placecol skin care professionals will undergo intensive education on 3 new facial treatments to ensure our customers receive treatments that meet the highest standards of excellence.

The 3 new facial treatments which our Placecol skin care clinics will launch, once our teams have undergone their intensive training are:

  • Our Oxygenating Vitamin A Facial is a highly effective facial for revitalising and boosting tired skin. Naturally rich in Vitamin A, which tightens and firms the skin, whilst stimulating micro-circulation, to increase oxygen and nutrients to the cells. This facial is rich in powerful anti-oxidants to help protect the skin from harmful free radical damage, a major cause of ageing.


  • Our second new facial is our Betanin Hydration Facial, which refreshes and renews skin.  An intensely cooling and hydrating facial which contains Betanin, a potent anti-oxidant that protects cells from free radical damage and gives beetroot its deep red colour. Rich in Vitamin C to boost immunity and stimulate cell function plus generous quantities of essential skin health minerals, such as iron and folate, for healthy cell growth. With beetroot’s deeply detoxifying properties, this facial leaves the skin feeling refreshed, renewed and energised.


  • Our third facial is our Cleansing Chlorophyll Facial, which clears and refines skin.  This facial is recommended for oily, problematic skin and is rich in chlorophyll derived from young Barley plants, to detoxify the skin and decrease surface shine, whilst simultaneously reducing congestion and inflammation. Combined with High Frequency Treatment, this facial effectively destroys the bacteria responsible for breakouts, combats congestion and assists in healing skin lesions. With powerful anti-oxidants to increase the skin’s immunity and help reduce free radical damage, the result is visibly refreshed, clearer skin.
