Jeanne Habashi Le Caire Egyptian Beauty Skin Care

Ancient Egyptians were among the early pioneers of cosmetology as they continually sought ways to enhance beauty, and preserve youthful appearances in a society where physical appearance was of paramount importance and whose women were fame for their beauty. Plants and natural ingredients were used to create Egyptian beauty skin care products that included moisturisers and anti-wrinkle creams, and over four thousand years later have inspired a premium luxury skin care line; Jeanne Habashi – Le Caire.

The Egyptian beauty skin care company was founded in 2006 by Jeanne Habashi who is originally from France but moved to Cairo in 2004, and there became captivated by the beauty secrets of the ancient Egyptians; researching the history Jeanne came across some papyrus documents showing detailed formulas of some of the ancient beauty products and although some of the ingredients were no longer suitable for modern formulas… ox gall anyone?… Jeanne sought to combine the latest technologies with ingredients she imagined the ancient Egyptians Queens… think, Nefertiti and Cleopatra… would still use today.

Jeanne employs a holistic approach to skin care using natural ingredients that have been linked to Egyptian Antiquity such as White Lotus, known for its energising, nourishing and brightening properties, and Neroli a precious essential oil extracted from the orange blossom which is said to have relaxing, purifying and soothing values. Caviar is another luxury ingredient used in the anti wrinkle formulations, and is said to possess energy and nutrients that help rejuvenate the skin.

The Jeanne Habashi – Le Caire skin care line comprises facial treatments across three sub-rituals, each tailored towards different skin types and requirements: Purifying Ritual, Moisturising Ritual, Anti-Ageing Ritual; and a Body & Senses Ritual that offers body-care and wellness across body lotions and aromatherapy oils. Jeanne Habashi has developed products for local hotels and spas including the Kempinski Nile hotel in Cairo to create a range of luxurious amenities for the hotel. Jeanne Habashi was a recipient of the prestigious Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards in 2009.

… and, as the company says premium Egyptian beauty skin care products ‘fit for a queen!’

  • Eight years ago I started a blog as a place to document the interesting things I was discovering with regards to the design and creativity emerging from Africa. From the moment I created my first blog post little did I know where the journey would take me. Fast-forward to present day I have not only been privileged to witness the development of an industry, but to also have an active role in creating awareness about it.

On this journey, I have seen Africa’s design industry grow from a handful of names from a handful countries to a continent wide-reach. Some names that were just starting out have become internationally respected leaders in their field, whilst behind them, a new generation of names are coming up and claiming their place in the industry.

To say that it is an exciting time for African design and creativity would be a gross understatement! We are in a time of rapid advancement and unbridled creative expression, that is setting the foundations and standards for future generations to build on. And like many other emerging industries in Africa, creativity is opening up opportunities to those who are willing to seize them. And seizing them designers are!

And as Atelier Fifty Five begins a new chapter it is an opportunity for me to renew my commitment to supporting the development of the African design industry and helping those I work with and write about, and work with to fulfill their potential for creating world-class brands.
