GINAMARIE Products and Continuing Educations, Inc are two faces of the same mission: educating professionals and the consumer in skincare.
This was the goal of Filomena Arends, our founder. In the early 1960’s she owned and operated the first cosmetology school in the suburbs of Chicago. Her passion was to educate others about the health of their skin from a holistic perspective so that they could have the understanding and awareness she did not have so many years ago. She formulated our skincare line to be compatible with skin as an organ ensuring that each product is pH balanced, water-based, gentle, antioxidant-rich, and made with naturally derived ingredients. Once the GINAMARIE Product line was in place, Filomena knew that clean cosmetics were the next step to incorporate.
The same mission is at the core of Continuing Educations, Inc, developed with a background of 60 years of experience in every aspect of Cosmetology, Esthetics, Nail Technology, and Teaching. We are an approved sponsor for license renewal in the State of Illinois, and we have been training professionals for more than 40 years.
