To compliment your at home regime,  we recommend introducing Clinical treatments into your regular skincare routine to improve skin health and combat any skin concerns or conditions. These professional strength products will not only give your skin an extra boost but will also assist the efficacy of your at home regime for ultimate luminosity.


Rationale Skin Consultation


The first step to beginning your Rationale skincare journey is a skin consultation. Over a period of 45 minutes, we will endeavour to understand everything we can about your skin. This begins with an open conversation to understand what your primary concerns are, as well as your ideal end result. Our trained dermal therapists will then cleanse and assess your skin before using the Observ skin imaging machine to gain a deeper understanding of what is occurring below the surface.


While the first part of the consultation is based on assessment, this is followed by a luxurious express enzyme treatment to begin your pathway to luminous skin! Our therapist will then apply moisturizer and SPF to conclude the treatment.


The final element of your skin consult is curating your perfect skin treatment plan. This will include a personalised recommendation of both in-clinic treatments and at-home care to ensure ongoing, lasting results.



Rationale Enzyme Reactivation Treatment


If you’re looking for instant results with no down-time, our Rationale Enzyme Reactivation treatment is perfect for you.


The Rationale professional range incorporates 3 different enzymes including Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Pyruvic Acid that can be adjusted to the necessary strength for any skin type- there is even an option for those who suffer from sensitivity! This customizability also means we are able to specifically target your concerns. Common examples include pigmentation, dryness, sun damage or acne. Or, for those who have multiple concerns, a combination of enzymes can be used.


This treatment begins with a double cleanse to remove makeup, dirt and impurities from the skin before a light exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. Once your skin has a clean surface, our therapist will create the right enzyme combination for you. This is applied to the face and decolletage and infused with essential oils to deeply penetrate and nourish your skin.


For the ultimate Rationale luminosity, this treatment concludes with LED Light Therapy, which helps to promote collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. The Rationale Enzyme Reactivation treatment will have you walking out of the treatment room feeling relaxed and pampered, with added radiance that will last for days!


While they can be used as a stand alone treatment, for best results we recommend incorporating a series of 4-6 Enzyme Treatments into your regime, to be performed at monthly intervals.


Did you know sun damage is the biggest cause of skin ageing in Australia? Do you want a skincare line that not only prevents, but will help reverse the signs of sun damage?


Introducing Rationale..


Founded by Richard Parker over 25 years ago, Rationale is a prestige Australian skincare brand that focuses on understanding, preventing and reversing signs of ageing caused by sun damage. Through the use of active ingredients, natural botanicals and antioxidants, the Rationale regime can be used to treat a range of skin conditions, including acne, rosacea and pigmentation.


Rationale’s products are based on the principle of skin identical formulas. Through researching how skin behaves when it is at its optimal health, Richard seeks to replicate these results through the use of specific ingredients to truly transform the quality of the skin. Rather than simply “fixing” problem areas, the holistic vision of Rationale aims to improve overall skin health.


This combined with a focus on sun protection has placed Rationale as the #1 elite skincare brand prescribed by Australian Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons, the medical experts in skin health and the world leaders in the prevention and rejuvenation of sun damage. As Australia experiences some of the harshest UV rays in the world, the research conducted by Richard is some of the most advanced to date and is often used to set the global standard in sun protection.


This research and design is underpinned by one simple vision for the Rationale brand: luminous skin for life. The interchangeable product line help to repair your skin’s barrier, allowing greater resistance to external factors. While ageing isn’t preventable, Richard’s philosophy is that “beauty transcends age”. With consistent use, your skin will be stronger and more resilient. making this natural process as graceful as possible!




The basis of the Rationale line is the Essential Six: a regime of six products work in in conjunction to repair, protect and rejuvenate the complexion, creating their trademark luminous skin.  


While the range is focused on results, the luxuiouriority of the products is still a priority. Traditional skincare has often been separated between medical, result driven ranges versus luxury feeling and looking alternatives. However, Rationale has created a hybrid of the two, delivering products that not only ensure superior results, but also feel, smell and look beautiful. Instead of being a chore, the Essential Six will transform your skincare routine into a truly luxurious ritual!


While the Essential Six this is suited to most skin types, the range also includes a series of “Boosters” that can be added based on individual needs and concerns. From serums and hydrators to makeup removers and weekly radiance treatments, the regime can be tailored for you! The first step to finding the solution for your needs is by booking a consultation. This will  allow us to deeply analyse your skin to curate a regime that is perfect for you.




While the Essential Six contains some SPF, Rationale promotes the use of SPF50 every day. Understanding that sunscreen generally feels and smells unpleasant, Rationale created a range of lightweight Superfluids, that offer superior UV protection without weighing down skin or clogging pores.


The B3-T is TGA approved sunscreen infused with vitamins B3, C and E as well as red tea extracts. The formulation glides on effortlessly to provides hydration while protecting skin against all solar rays (UV, Infrared and visible light).


For those who want a little more, the Beautiful Skin range offers UV protection with a sheer tint to even and perfect the complexion. Available in 3 shades to suit most skin tones, this product contains light diffusing technology that enhances your skin for a natural yet luminous glow.


This range also includes a bronzer, blush and highlighter to add definition to the face. The pigment in these products can be built up to the desired depth- from a light wash of colour to a more intense contour, the Beautiful skin boosters blend seamlessly into the skin for a flawless finish.


Nourishing your complexion with skin-loving ingredients, protecting from UV damage and offering a flawless finish: Rationale’s Superfluids are truly a must-try.




I am a new client, where do I start?

Before embarking on your RATIONALE journey to luminous skin, we highly recommend taking part in a professional skincare consultation to assess your skin concerns and best prescribe the products and treatments most suitable for you.

Are your products tested on animals?

We have never, and will never, test on animals. We test our products on ourselves and our network of doctors and clinics. Until we are 100% satisfied with the results do we release this to the public.

Do your products contain parabens?

All our products are preservative-free and paraben-free.

How long will my RATIONALE products last?

Everyone is different. However, as a general rule, your products should last an average of 3 – 4 months.

Is RATIONALE suitable to use while pregnant?

We’re often asked about the safety of products containing Vitamin A, Salicylic Acid and Sunscreen Actives for pregnant or nursing women. Below we explain all you need to know to make the most informed decision, however we always recommend speaking with your Dermal Therapist about your concerns.

What samples will I receive with my purchase?

We tailor our sampling options to ensure all skin conditions and needs are covered.


Vitamin A
When it comes to Vitamin A in skincare, knowing the form and concentration is key. While prescription Tretinoin + Isotretinoin must be avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding, Retinol and its esters are considered perfectly safe forms of Vitamin A for topical use while pregnant. We’ve used these safe and gentle forms in our RATIONALE skincare products (Retinol, Retinaldehyde and Retinyl Palmitate to be specific). These gentle forms of Vitamin A that deliver major skin rejuvenation benefits are perfectly fine for use while pregnant or breastfeeding.

Salicylic Acid
In low doses Salicylic Acid is a superior skin clarifier and rejuvenator. If you are concerned about Salicylic Acid use during pregnancy, we always recommend speaking with your Dermal Therapist about your concerns.

Sunscreen actives
Daily sunscreen use is strongly recommend by Dermal Therapist. If you find your skin is more sensitive during pregnancy, consider using sunscreens with gentle mineral actives of Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide. These will also help to better defend skin against pigmentation as they form a physical barrier between the sun and your skin. To increase your SPF protection, layering is key. From your morning moisturiser to your make-up, choose formulations with sun protection.
