Marlize Gentis (owner) is passionate about healthy skin and personal client care.  Her personal touch in the salon is very visible - she has taken great care in ensuring that every detail about the salon is perfect, perfect for your state of mind and perfect for the rejuvenation of your skin.


Utopia Health and Beauty Salon opened its doors in 2003 in Table View.  After nine successful years the salon moved to the picturesque suburb of Durbanville in 2012.


Marlize generously invests much of her time and research into stocking only the best products on the market and in keeping up with new ground breaking technologies within the beauty industry.


All Utopia’s therapists are hand picked on their experience and are optimally trained in our full range of professional products and treatments.  We are proud experts in the Dermalogica Range.
