Ten years after a six-month trial in Australia, French Skincare brand Mary Cohr has officially launched in Australia.
Madam Mary Cohr, “a champion and ambassador for the profession of beauty therapy”, established the salon-only brand in 1976 with pharmacist Jean Daniel Mondin.
Together they used “the potency powers of plants and essential oils” to develop a range of products and treatments that are GMO-free, paraben-free and chemical filter-free, with skin compatible scents”.
Today the brand’s 2060 square metre laboratory in Paris, “hosts and utilises 1200 raw plant materials to continually develop patented formulas” while its pilot beauty salon “continually evaluates the new active ingredients arising in scientific advances”
Jo Murtagh, the director of Mary Cohr Australia, said she was immediately drawn to the brand’s beautiful product range and treatments as well as “its story”.
“So when the opportunity to bring Mary Cohr to Australia was presented to me, I jumped at the chance,” she said. “Australians deserve to experience Mary Cohr.”
Australians did however have a brief window of opportunity to experience the brand in 2006.
“Ten years ago Mary Cohr was trialled in Australia for approximately six months,” said Jo.
“The salons that trialled it absolutely loved it, so much so that a few still talk about some of the hero products today.”
Jo is adamant that the brand will be welcomed by Australian beauty therapists and their clients.
“I am passionate about nurturing today’s beauty therapists and the therapists of the future,” she says.
“Like Madam Mary Cohr I believe the profession of beauty therapy is still not appreciated nor valued for what it is.
“I believe Mary Cohr as a brand allows professional therapists to shine, in demonstrating their understanding of the skin, by properly assessing and recommending solutions and gaining satisfaction in seeing real results on their clients.”
She said she looked forward to working with salons, spas and clinics “that are as passionate about tailored solutions for their clients as we are”.
“We believe in one size fits one,” she said. “Hence we strive to really understand our potential partner’s business and work with them on making sure Mary Cohr is successful for them.”
Jo said that since its official launch on June 1, the company has “had nothing but amazing feedback on our treatment and product offerings”.
“Our clients are loving our approach to skincare which is wonderful to hear and gives us that extra confidence that Australians are ready for Mary Cohr.”
