Matis is one of the fabulous skincare ranges in The Salon Source. We have asked them some questions, to help us learn all we need to know!
Matis Paris, the art of French skincare since 1936. Innovative formulas inspired by the best in science and nature.
Can you share the story behind the brand?
Matis has a long and valued history. Starting in 1936 Doctor Mavromati, a pharmacist who was an expert in ingredients and formulations, created his own laboratory. His discoveries included that products became more effective when combined with a holistic approach to skincare. As a pioneer, he understood that chemistry and science alone were not enough and for a product to work effectively it needed to be combined with sensory and emotional aspects. As he also developed these ideas, Dr. Mavromati opened his first store in 1946 on Rue Fontaine. This was the true development of MATIS. Since then, MATIS has celebrated women’s beauty wholeheartedly guaranteeing a Professional Beauty Expert. Today, the brand is still very much French, with a Research & Development Laboratory near Paris, where all products are developed, manufactured, packaged and shipped worldwide.
Alongside this long standing direction MATIS believe in delivering high tech products that are greener and cleaner without compromise. The Responses developed draw on the most innovative, often exclusive and always effective skin and planet friendly ingredients. With formulas that are highly concentrated and results driven, emphasising on the most potent and precious active ingredients. These are wrapped in textures that are pleasurable to use and reflect the French epicurean tradition. When combined with professional treatments they offer the most receptive conditions for visible, lasting results.

You also get a brand that is multi functional, diverse, easily combined to create bespoke treatments and personalised plans for your customers.
