Dr Katherine Armour

"As a cosmetic and general Dermatologist, I have spent the last 10 years honing my knowledge in the field of cosmeceutical skincare. I have consulted with major multi-national skincare companies and now want to focus on Bespoke. After listing to women and what they want, I have joined with A/Prof Goodman to create it. For too long I've had to gather products from numerous different skincare ranges to provide my patients with the ingredients they need to meet their skincare requirements. This results in too many products, too much expense, and, frankly, too much time to apply them. So many women have asked me, "isn't there 1 product that does it all?" So, we have created it. 

Based in Melbourne, Australia, I work in private practice with A/Prof Goodman at the renowned Dermatology Institute of Victoria, and also at the Alfred Hospital and Skin Health Institute. I am passionate about dermatology. I sit on numerous advisory boards, am a regular speaker at international dermatological meetings, and have published widely in dermatology literature. 

All my work leading up to now has bolstered my desire to create Bespoke with Dr. Goodman. We focus on scientific discovery and proven results. It’s time to cut through the marketing hype, and get behind a range using active skincare ingredients that science has proven to be clinically effective."

Associate Professor Greg Goodman

"As a Dermatologist in Australia, I practice in the medical, surgical and cosmetic sectors. My current positions are: Lead Dermatologist at the Dermatology Institute of Victoria (Melbourne, Australia), Chief of Surgery including the Mohs Micrographic Surgery Unit at the Skin & Cancer Foundation and Adjunct Professor at Monash University. I also lecture in Australia and internationally on matters relating to skin aging, skin care, skin surgery, as well as the place of beauty and associated treatments.

My experience has led me to develop an extensive list of publications and a series of educational software programs about skin aging, skin care, and patient communication, including a recent book on skin care (stay tuned for the book here!). Currently, I am Associate Editor of the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology and International Contributing Editor of the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery.

With over three decades of experience, I drew upon my deep understanding of dermatology when crafting Bespoke with Dr. Armour. I'm passionate about skincare that does far more than just what a label implies. I want to see products create meaningful, long-term benefits to the skin, using the latest discoveries and results as the basis of all that Bespoke does."
