Dominique Mandonnaud founded French brand, Sephora, in 1970. A visionary beauty retail concept, Sephora features an ever-increasing amount of classic and emerging brands across a broad range of product categories including skincare, colour, fragrance, body and haircare, in addition to their own private label.
In order to best serve their customers, Sephora developed “Science of Sephora”, which ensures that their team is skilled to identify skin types, has knowledge of skin physiology, the history of make-up, application techniques, the science of creating fragrances, and most importantly, how to interact with Sephora’s diverse clientele.
Owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH), the world’s leading luxury goods group, Sephora is highly regarded as a beauty trailblazer, thanks to its exceptional assortment of prestige products, unbiased service from experts, interactive open-sell environment and innovation.
Today, Sephora is not only the leading chain of perfume and cosmetics stores in France, but also a powerful beauty presence around the world, with approximately 1,300 stores in 27 countries worldwide, as well as 15 international websites, seven of which are online stores.
Sephora is more than just a beauty chain, supporting a number of charitable causes, including women’s health, child education, environmental awareness and world hunger. Examples of organisations they have worked with in the past include, Girls For a Change and Starlight Children’s Foundation. Currently, purchasing Philosophy’s WhyHunger To Believe Charity Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath and Buxom’s Stay-There Eyeshadow will support WhyHunger and Canine Companions for Independence respectively.
