Who’s behind the brand

Gino Barbo, entrepreneur and founder of usmooth, has been an integral part of the beauty industry in the United States for nearly 30 years. His devotion to this industry combined with his desire to help others feel their best inspired him to create usmooth. A professional line of products that are genuinely priced and unparalleled in performance. Multifaceted by design, he formulated each product to have more than one function thus offering excellence and value in every bottle. Gino, an Australian-born Italian, moved to the US in 1985 after meeting his wife, Dana. Together they started an independent, family-owned distributorship called Salon Service Group, which provides professional hair care to salons in 11 states within the Midwest. SSG has been built upon the belief that success is a natural byproduct of doing things the right way. This mindset, along with Gino's admiration for the salon professional, led him to create the ucare Foundation. This foundation exclusively provides support for hairstylists who may need help due to unforeseen medical conditions or emergency financial circumstances. Two percent of all usmooth sales fund the ucare Foundation.
