Visage Pro Consulting

The Visage Pro Story – The story began in 2006 when the Founder, Sherrie Berry was in a backyard explosion that burned her face. Back then, Sherrie dabbled in nutritional supplement formulation, but the accident caused her to adjust her path.  She ended up creating a skin care product to help burn recovery.

Fourteen years later, with an extensive portofilio under their belt, Sherrie and her partner, Shannon Valencia are privileged to connect with many clients every day in assisting them with creating and branding exceptional skincare products with turnkey, successful results – products that are showcased on the shelves of top cosmetic retailers.

Visage Pro is French for Face Pro, but it’s more than just the face.  Sherrie and Shannon are experts in face, bath and body products. They inspire, create and nurture – one skincare brand at a time, offering the most effective products possible, with the most attractive packaging. Shannon’s spearheading the opening of the Aveda Lifestyle Stores, and creating and implementing a consistent growth strategy for Steiner Corp is just a glimpse of the services Visage Pro has been able to offer.

Their goal is to offer products and advice regarding branding and marketing that speak to your vibe, your vision, whether it be all-organic, sustainable, OTC or clinically-tried formulations. Since that fateful day in 2006, Visage Pro has helped over 120 brands create their products – and packaging – that draw customers and promote their businesses.
