Well-known in the esthetics industry, Ella Cressman is the Director of Sales and Education for Color Up Therapeutics. Cressman (pictured) joined the Color Up Therapeutics team in May 2018 after using the products in her skin care practice. Based in Colorado, Color Up Therapeutics is a cruelty-free, organic CBD company.Nominated for a 2018 DERMASCOPE Aestheticians’ Choice Award as Favorite Brand Educator, Cressman became a licensed esthetician in 2007 after attending the College of International Esthetics. In 2009, she became a skin care educator and industry mentor. She achieved an Organic Skin Care Formulation Certificate in 2016 and is expected to earn an Organic Skin Care Formulation Diploma in late 2018.
Before joining Color Up Therapeutics, Cressman consulted for several skin care lines, including other CBD brands. “Because of proven and ongoing research, we know the many benefits of CBD, which include topical skin care application. As esthetics professionals, it is our responsibility not only to design and formulate thoughtful, effective products, but to educate and increase the understanding of exactly how these botanical extracts are integral in communicating with our body’s systems. I look forward to a time in the very near future, when the word ‘phytocannabinoid’ rolls off the tongue as easily as ‘antioxidants’ when discussing corrective, preventative and anti-aging skin care.”
