Maria Enna Cocciolone

Skin guru and skincare founder forging transparency in the industry

Maria Enna-Cocciolone is the CEO & Founder of INSKIN COSMEDICS, an Australian owned Medical Aesthetic Distribution Centre founded in Maria’s family garage with a vision to return the heart and soul to the beauty industry.

In 2007, with the support of her family, Maria put their livelihood on the line when she made the decision to start her own business. Already an integral member of the Beauty Industry, having worked first as an Aesthetician and later in Sales and Management, Maria wore the many hats of a small business owner on her own for the better part of the first year. Administration and invoicing in the morning, sales, education and marketing through the day and pick and pack in the evening the winning recipe for her early success.

As her business grew so too did Maria’s commitment to bringing the Industry unmitigated passion and transparency, the foundations on which her business was created. Maria positioned INSKIN COSMEDICS first and foremost on what today is known as her 8 Core Values:

1. Integrity: Doing the right thing when no one is watching.
2. Customer Centric: Not just a department but a company culture.
3. Transparency: Honesty always.
4. The Honey Pot: Sweetened words and positivity.
5. Gratitude: It’s free and it’s important.
6. Family Matters: When people go to work they don’t leave their heart at home.
7. 360 Degree Growth: Striving to be your best self.

INSKIN COSMEDICS has since outgrown the garage – three times! Having earned the reputation as trusted industry innovators, INSKIN COSMEDICS remains at the forefront of the evolution of the Australian beauty industry providing cutting edge skin solutions that transform the skin from the inside out. In 2009, Maria’s 30+ years’ experience was bottled in her first range, Australia’s number one Cosmedical and professional skin care brand O COSMEDICS and again in 2016 in GINGER&ME, range number two, where she is Creator and Co-Creator respectively.

In all her accomplishments as Creator, Director, Educator, Marketer, Distributor, Manufacturer and Business Owner (to list only a few) Maria’s greatest achievement, in her own words, is her team.

Leading by example with the same 8 Core Values she implemented ten years ago, Maria has created the type of company culture each member of her team are proud to be apart of and to represent. As a woman in a senior role, Maria proudly embraces the strengths of being female; infusing professionalism with emotion, compassion and kindness proving that empowerment can be the difference between having employees and having a team that thrives. No matter where she goes or what she does next you can be sure that will never change.
