GigTech fuels the Beyond Beauty Club

The Next Level of Personalized Social Selling

Fuelled by the powerhouse joint venture of GigTech the Beyond Beauty Club stands at the cusp of revolutionizing the personalized skincare landscape while ushering in a disruptive era in social selling.


The e-commerce platform, «SimonOurianMd.com», brings to life 25 years of Dr. Simon Ourian's cosmetic dermatology expertise through a revolutionary 3D, photorealistic AI avatar. Revered by Hollywood elites including the Kardashians and Kylie Jenner, Dr. Ourian now extends his tailored services globally. His digital twin, the Dr. Simon AI Avatar, not only mirrors Dr. Ourian's appearance, movements, and tone of voice but also embodies his 25 years of expertise in analyzing customer data to create personalized 3-step skincare regimens. Following the analysis, customers receive a detailed skin report outlining their primary skin concerns. Leveraging this report, a personalized skincare routine is designed for them, available for direct purchase or subscription in a personalized shop.


The «Beyond Beauty Club» is a vibrant hub fostering a community of like-minded individuals. Engaging in social selling, members not only learn and grow but also carve out a side income, empowering themselves financially while indulging in their passion for skincare. The Virtual Office app supports Beyond Beauty Club resellers by providing precise information on current business activity, sales team performance, and expected payments. Users can take advantage of income simulators and calculators to accurately forecast potential earnings, aiding in the setting of realistic financial goals. Alongside, the in-built Academy, central to the app's gamification concept, facilitates a deeper understanding of Dr. Simon Ourian’s products and the overarching philosophy, empowering resellers to effectively market the products.

Axelra meticulously co-created and executed this venture from its inception to its expansive growth, demonstrating vested interest across all spheres including management, (digital) product and growth. As of September 2023, the collaborative force reached its zenith with 23 experts from Axelra and 49 from GigTech/Beyond Beauty actively engaged. Launched as MVP Alpha in December 2022 and publicly in UK in June 2023, the initiative has already marked significant milestones in September 2023 with 7’000+ onboarded active club members, 20,000+ virtual skin consultations and shipping skin care regimes to 28 EU nations. The successful handover is anticipated to reach completion by the end of the year.
