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.
Coming to the USA in the summer of 1970 gave her new opportunities to put her knowledge and passion for beauty into practical use. After receiving a cosmetology license, she began her first job as a makeup formulator and creator, blending cosmetics on Madison Ave. It was here that she quickly came to understand the need for truly effective, serious skin care. After working as a lead esthetician in one of the top NYC spas, she ventured out on her own, opening her first spa in 1977 on 53rd Street and Madison Ave. She quickly became the "it" skin care expert to the social set and celebrities. She introduced the Four Layer Facial in 1980, a entirely new concept in unidose facial applications born from the need to assure consistent, 100% efficacy and satisfaction for each client. This facial proved to be the treatment that would change professional skin care forever.
