These physicians, spas and salons are authorized resellers selected by Jan Marini Skin Research. They have been chosen for their ability to properly represent, sell, recommend, and assist consumers in the use of our products, as well as their experience with various skin types, conditions, and general customer concerns.

We are using our best efforts (including this warning) to keep these companies from taking advantage of consumers, but unauthorized practices still exist. We urge you to use diligence when selecting a source for your purchases.
To assist you, we have provided below a partial list of websites which claim to sell Jan Marini Skin Research products but are unauthorized resellers.
