Meet The Founder

Lurinda Swanepoel is the CEO of La Van Skin and Body Excellence System and founder of the skincare brand DERCA. Lurinda studies at the academy of health and skin care in Cape Town in 2007 where she graduated top of her class with 3 international and 1 national diplomas in Somatology like SAAHSP, CIDESCO, ITEC and CIBTAC. After working internationally on cruise ships she returned to South Africa where she soon started her career in advanced aesthetics and realized her passion for laser machines. Lurinda started her company in 2010 with just a small personal loan where she went on to develop her first product to give true and fast results. The range soon expanded and in 2016 the range was rebranded and expanded into DERCA, our premium brand at an affordable price. She is also registered to give laser and product CPD training.
