TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOUR CAREER, WHERE DID THE ADVENTURE START? WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO FOLLOW THIS CAREER PATH?
I always gravitated towards natural ingredients and homemade skincare recipes passed down through generations in my home country (Morocco) but my interest in skincare became more prominent when I developed adult acne in my mid-20s. I tried every brand of skincare under the sun, but I would always go back to the all-natural masks and treatments.
When I moved to Dubai and started working alongside plastic surgery clinics I became more intrigued by the power of skincare and by the conflicting research and claims surrounding the beauty industry. I decided to use my biotechnology background and formulate products that are natural and easy to use. From there Repère Care was created.
