Format date for use in email

We have a process which emails business users if a data issue occurs, and part of the email includes a date field which is stored in a process property.  I'm using a message shape to define the message body, however this results in the date being added to the email in the format '20161019 000000.000', where I want it to be 19-10-2016 to be easily readable.

How can I define the date format for sending in an email?

I tried creating a flatfile profile with a date field of 'dd-MM-yyyy' and passing the date into this profile to use in the message shape parameter, but it still gets formatted as '20161019 000000.000'.  What am I missing?
