Founded in 1946 in Brussels with our Head Office in Zurich, Switzerland, Comité International d’Esthétique et de Cosmétologie – CIDESCO is the World Standard for Beauty and Spa Therapy.
Our membership is open to the leading schools, colleges, beauty salons and spas of the world and students looking to achieve a superior level of training and the CIDESCO Diploma qualification which is recognised worldwide.
Our mantra is Connect the Community, which is why membership in our associations has no charge for those actively practicing the pursuit of Wellness. Nationally and Internationally, all are welcome to join.
The Esthetician Connection, or ‘The EC’ as it is known worldwide, is your comprehensive Esthetics and Wellness Professional Community. We are dedicated to connecting licensed skincare professionals to forward moving, prominent, and well researched esthetic brands and, in turn, connecting those brands and professionals to potential clients for their businesses.
This event gives practicing estheticians an online platform to compete with their actual client results. They submit an 8-week case study online with video diaries and before and after pictures. Finalists are invited to the year-end show where they are interviewed and scored individually by a panel of industry expert judges.
