"Since the launch of Repêchage in 1980, my personal commitment has been to provide the most innovative and effective skin care products. This commitment stems from two things: from my background as an esthetician and from my own personal experience of the sea."
- Lydia Sarfati
Lydia's Life Story
Lydia Sarfati was born in Legnica, Poland, a city close to the Czech and German borders. As a young girl, she was an avid student of the sciences, especially chemistry and biology, as well as of the arts, in particular literature. This was the beginning of her life's passion of combining her creative energies with her thirst for scientific knowledge. She has found that knowing how and why things worked has been the driving force behind creating and formulating new products.
The Repêchage difference is our commitment to being the best in every aspect of the skin care business, from creating the best seaweed-based products to providing the most in-depth education and training.
