Rationale Facials

At Inigo Cosmetic, we always stress to our patients the importance of a medical-grade skincare regimen. While hundreds of skincare products are available at the supermarket or department store, these do not contain the active ingredients needed to complement your in-clinic procedures. Medical-grade skincare lines, on the other hand, are formulated with high percentages of the active ingredients that your skin needs to maintain health and integrity. When you visit Inigo Cosmetic, we always recommend a customised skincare regime with products tailored to your individual skin concerns.


Maintaining a youthful, glowing complexion starts with good skincare.

We are proud to offer Rationale skincare products. With a mission to deliver ‘Luminous Skin for Life’, Rationale’s luxurious suite of formulations offer unparalleled environmental skin protection and repair so that you can restore natural beauty and radiance.


Since 1992, RATIONALE has delivered Luminous Skin for Life with a luxurious suite of formulations and treatment experiences that enlighten and transform.

From their world-leading research laboratory at RATIONALE HQ in Melbourne, RATIONALE remains compelled to develop superlative formulations which offer unparalleled environmental skin protection and repair, restoring natural beauty and radiance.

The Essential Six Collections have been crafted around the six facets of skin luminosity: Resilience, Vitality, Brilliance, Integrity, Clarity and Renewal.

Every RATIONALE Ritual is built upon these six facets and is tailored to your unique skin needs.

The ultimate expression of a profound understanding of human skin, world-leading Australian solar research and Skin Identical technology, this suite of definitive formulations works synergistically with skin—and each other—to offer nourishing protection by day and revitalising repair at night, reanimating skin’s natural radiance.

The result is Luminous Skin for Life.

About Essential Six

The cornerstone of the RATIONALE range is the Essential Six Collections—a system built around the six facets of skin health and luminosity, and acknowledged worldwide as the definitive skincare for skin protection and repair, restoring natural beauty and radiance.

Tailored to every individual’s skin, an Essential Six Ritual acts as the skin’s daily nutrition, providing all the Skin Resilience Boosters, Antioxidants, Environmental Protection, Barrier Fortification, pH Recalibration and Nightly Repair needed for skin to glow with radiant health.

By day, the Essential Six ritual offers vital support to skin’s innate resilience, antioxidant nourishment to boost skin vitality, and delivers comprehensive protection from the entire Solar Constant—made up of ultraviolet, visible light and infrared radiation—as well as against pollution and other environmental aggressors.

By night, the Essential Six evening routine works to repair and reverse daytime damage by replenishing the skin’s lipid barrier and recalibrating skin’s pH to a healthy, acidic level. Repair processes are supported for overnight rejuvenation and cellular regeneration for a visibly more luminous complexion by morning.

How to Get Started with RATIONALE

A comprehensive Skin Consultation is the essential first step in any RATIONALE journey, and the very best investment you can make in your skin’s future.

Including Skin Scanning touch analysis under magnification light and UV Diagnostic Imaging, a Skin Consultation will reveal the health of every layer of your skin. Empowered with a thorough understanding of your skin’s needs, your Skin Consultant will then tailor a personalised skincare prescription and treatment plan.

Your recommended RATIONALE Essential Six skincare and treatment plan draws on world-leading, Australian solar skincare research to deliver everything you need to protect from and repair environmental damage of every kind, and maintain healthy, Luminous Skin for Life.
