Scarlett Paris Skin Care

#HipNJ spoke with Dwon Foye, President and CEO of Specialty Brands International, about Scarlett Paris®  and their new Scarlett skincare products.

Scarlett is a leading French skin care brand, renowned for producing premium, professional skincare products in France for over 25 years.

““I am an importer of special products from Europe, and I discovered the Scarlett brand during a trip to Paris,” Foye says. “I was looking for a skincare brand to import, and after a lot of evaluation and research, it became clear that the Scarlett brand was the perfect one.”

“The uniqueness comes from an exclusive type of marine algae that is harvested from the Northwest coast of France,” Foye says. They are paraben free and take advantage of the minerals and compounds present in the marine algae to deliver unmatched benefits to your skin—smoothing, toning, firming, anti-aging, and many others.

“The products are geared towards improving overall health and appearance of the skin.” These products include cleansers, peels, masks, moisturizers, and serums.

Using a step by step method based on your skin type, treatments are unique and effective. “I’ve never been more confident in the way my skin looks and feels,” says a Scarlett skincare product user.

The Scarlett line offers premium level professional grade product. To learn more, check out their website. To order, head over to the contact page on their site.
