  • David Heath
    David Heath CEO

    David’s  extensive academic career led him to qualify as a medical devices researcher with degrees in physics and engineering working in a multidisciplinary clinical, commercial and engineering team. Throughout his PhD and post-doctoral research he focussed on transdermal medical technology. Whilst presenting at a skincare conference he realised that the expertise developed working with this technology could be re-applied to solve some of the major challenges in the cosmetic skincare industry.

    Dr Heath secured funding to develop technology for the cosmetic skincare industry and validated his innovation both technically and commercially. During this time the company was spun out of the University of Strathclyde and received recognition from the Royal Society of Edinburgh and from the Royal Academy of Engineering and ERA Foundation for both  entrepreneurial approach and outstanding technology innovation.

    He concurrently recruited the Cutitronics team bringing together the experience and expertise essential to launch such disruptive technology into the skincare market. Cutitronics is now a multi-award winning company strategically white labelling their patented platforms and devices for global premium skincare brands.
