In the 1970′s Lydia Sarfati, CEO and Founder of Sarkli- Repêchage, Ltd., discovered the renewing and healing powers of seaweed. Based on her research, Sarfati founded Repêchage Skin Care in 1980, pioneering the use of organic, sustainably-harvested seaweed to benefit skin all around the world. Through her work, Sarfati found that seaweed contained a high concentration of powerful ingredients, including 12 vitamins and minerals, 42 trace elements, and 18 amino acids which are essential to the proliferation of healthy skin cells. Rich in anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, seaweed is the ideal ingredient for strengthening the skin barrier while detoxifying, oxygenating, re-balancing, and hydrating the skin.
Repêchage now has over 20 seaweed-based skin care regimens for every skin type and concern and over 100 products for the professional and consumer. Using pure seaweed filtrate derived by a proprietary method and manufactured in a 50,000 square foot, ISO 9001-certified state-of-the-art facility in Secaucus, NJ, Repêchage continues to develop products based on the EcoCert seaweeds harvested off the Brittany Coast of France and now through a pilot program with sustainable organic seaweed harvested off the coast of Maine.
For the professional, Repêchage now has over 40 skin treatments for the spa and salon,including the Repêchage Four Layer Facial ® , the company’s signature facial.
