Quality ingredients, science-backed formulations and personalised treatments are at the heart of the award-winning luxury skincare brand, Matis Paris.
So it’s no wonder why beauty therapist, Rosa Scialo of BodySense Beauty Treatments, has been using the leading French skincare brand both personally and professionally for 32 years. “When I first set up the company 33 years ago, I was using another French brand,” Rosa says. “But it was a small range, so I wanted something that offered more.”
Rosa came across Matis Paris at a beauty trade show after her husband Franco was handed a bag of samples for men. “When he got home, and started using them, he said ‘this is really good’.” Rosa got in touch with her local Matis representative, researched everything there is to know about the brand, and as Rosa says: “The rest is history.”
The history of Matis Paris
Launched in 1936 by pharmacist Dr. Mavromati, Matis Paris is a planet-friendly, independent French skincare brand that has built its success on its personalised skincare treatments and its rich 86-year-history of beauty industry experience. It sells its quality products in over 73 countries.
The brand takes inspiration from the latest scientific advances in medicine and molecular & cellular biology to deliver tailormade skincare solutions.
All Matis Paris products are dermatologically tested, developed and produced in its state-of-the-art factory in France, near Cosmetic Valley. They grow the majority of the ingredients themselves so they have more control of what goes into their products ensuring the highest quality treatments.
So, why should you invest in Matis Paris?
1. Matis Paris is tailored to you
You won’t find Matis Paris stocked in your local pharmacy or supermarket. Instead, these innovative products can be purchased through a Matis Paris-trained beauty therapist (like Rosa) who has the 30+ year knowledge and experience to assess your concerns, decipher what your skin needs and find the solution.
And it’s for good reason. “Our skin is complex and unfortunately more often than not, when people pick up off-the-shelf skincare, they self-prescribe the wrong product,” explains Rosa. “Then, when they don’t get the results they want, they blame the product.”
2. Only the best active ingredients are used
In the world of skincare, active ingredients refer to ingredients that address different skin concerns. Be it anti-ageing, dullness or hyperpigmentation.
So no matter whether it’s hyaluronic acid (which is hydrating), vitamin C (which helps brighten), AHAs (which exfoliate) or the holy grail of anti-aging, Vitamin A (which is more informally known as retinol) — the brand’s tried and tested formulations and innovative treatments address skincare problems for today and tomorrow.
3. The ingredients are highly concentrated
This means you’ll get fast, visible and lasting results.
“Matis Paris uses active ingredients, which have a strong potency, but these are gentle to your skin,” Rosa says. “This allows the proven formulas to penetrate the different layers of your epidermis quickly and more effectively.”
Therefore, a little goes a long way. “Which is good for our skin concerns and for our pockets too,” Rosa adds.
4. It’s kind to the planet
Looking after the planet is extremely important and necessary, Rosa is proud to support Matis Paris who put the planet first.
Plus, to keep its carbon footprint to a minimum, all ingredients are obtained locally in France and from the brand’s own farms, or labs. “Any ingredients Matis Paris can't make or source locally, they use with caution,” Rosa explains. “Matis is a brand that respects nature.” Also, any ingredient they cannot grow themselves is ethically sourced.
5. Matis Paris is a cruelty free brand
So you can rest assured that no furry friends were harmed in the process of crafting the products, as Matis Paris does not test on animals.
6. There’s a wide range of treatments and products available
Whether you’re looking to hydrate, plump, exfoliate, brighten or more — there’s a Matis Paris treatment and product available.
Rosa adds: “The wide range means I can bespoke the treatments for my clients, and offer good quality homecare to help them further improve the results.”
Treatments to try this summer

But just remember with a peel, you’ll need to allow between 5-7 days of downtime before travelling to somewhere sunny.
