Mario Badescu was a Romanian-born skin care specialist with a bold
vision. Being both a chemist and a cosmetologist, Mario had a very
unique perspective about skin care, appreciating both the chemical
nature and complexities of the skin, as well as the desire and innate
satisfaction and confidence that healthy, clean, radiant skin can give
Mario opened his salon in New York City in 1967 and began to develop
his signature skin care product line. The effectiveness of these
products and his unparalleled European-style facials did not remain a
secret --- before long, Mario was rubbing shoulders with the most
famous actors, actresses, and celebrities of his day, as they looked to
his products and salon as New York City's very own fountain of youth.
Mario Badescu spent many years doing research in his laboratory and
testing his innovative products in his salon, and the result of his
hard work can still be seen today. Our botanically-based skin care line
remains as Mario crafted it so many years ago, expertly designed to
keep your skin luscious and beautiful. We pride ourselves in still
offering the same personal, customized skin care treatments that were
Mario's patent offerings.
Our insistence upon holding true to Mario Badescu's vision is the
reason why celebrities around the world still love our products and our
facials, and why hundreds of other men and women who appreciate how
important healthy skin can be still look to Mario Badescu for their
skin care needs.
Likewise, we have maintained Mario’s dedication to offering our skin
care products at exceptional prices. We believe that everybody deserves
good skin care, and have crafted our prices accordingly. Using simple,
no-frills packaging is part of the reason we are able to do this. While
other companies are concerned with fancy, shiny wrappers and bottles,
the packaging of our products is not as important as the products
inside them. This allows us to focus on providing a quality product at
an affordable price.
And so we offer our mission, the same vision that Mario Badescu had when he opened his salon over 40 years ago.
