The Dr Sebagh brand, co-owned by cosmetic doctor Jean-Louis Sebagh and businesswoman and philanthropist Melissa John, is one of the few privately owned skincare brands that formulates and manufactures its own products. This independence enables them to develop unique and powerful formulations using advanced bio-tech ingredients, carefully chosen for their potency and specific benefits in addressing a particular skincare need or concern.
The Dr Sebagh brand’s philosophy has always been about the skin’s individual needs, and that ‘feeding’ it properly with the correct ingredients for your skin type, in the right concentration and using the latest bio-technology available, is the key to achieving the best possible skin. Dr Sebagh was the first person to advocate the mixing of different serums to create a personal skincare regime.
The Dr Sebagh brand has won countless awards for excellence and has many ‘hero’ products loved by beauty insiders, Hollywood celebrities and influeners worldwide.
These include Dr Sebagh Deep Exfoliating Mask, Dr Sebagh Serum Repair, Dr Sebagh Pure Vitamin C Powder Cream and the recently launched, multi prize-winning Dr Sebagh Self-Tanning Drops.
2018 was an exciting year for the company. In March, Melissa John, on behalf of the brand, established The Mercury Foundation: ‘To advance the education of the public, in particular but not exclusively in the history of the Second World War, The Battle of Britain and the Royal Air Force…’ One of The Mercury Foundation’s first projects was to sponsor a trophy to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force: The RAF Centenary Trophy ‘for Inspiration’. In October it staged a royal gala at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, and was able to donate substantial funds to five RAF-related charities.
The Dr Sebagh brand has a history of philanthropic work, including the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Bethnal Green Tube disaster memorial, Crisis – the national homeless charity, West London Action for Children, East Grinstead Hospital McIndoe Centre, the Dog’s Trust, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, the Brain Tumour Charity and many others. ‘I enjoy what I do and am lucky enough to have a business partner who is equally altruistic. If we can help causes or charities we believe in, we do,’ says Melissa.
The Dr Sebagh brand is available through over 300 well-known department stores in 34 countries, spread over six continents.
Products are also sold globally online via the brand’s website. In 2019 they will be launching several innovative new products and opening further points of sale across Asia.
Melissa John attributes the success of the brand to the best of France’s manufacturing, with its long history of innovation and excellence, coupled with the unmistakable British drive for quality and integrity. Her partnership with Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh has, in this way, created a thoroughly modern British business.
