OUR STORY

OENOBIOL PARIS STARTED WITH ONE WOMAN: MARIE BÉJOT

Oenobiol is a brand born out of the medical experience of its founder, Marie Béjot.

A third generation doctor, Marie Béjot specialises in nutrition, drawing on experiences from both her childhood spent in Africa and her father’s passion (he was a botanist) for nature and medicinal plants. Diet was also viewed as a means of preserving health and preventing being taken ill in her family growing up and it was this vision which led her to study medicine and has subsequently guided her and Oenobiol throughout the years.
Starting out in Dakar, Senegal, she would complete her medical studies in Paris with a diploma in nutritional physiology and diet therapy.

Marie Béjot would open her first medical aesthetics surgery in Paris in 1978, specialising on treating signs of ageing as well as patients who were overweight. She has always been keenly aware of the importance of nutrition as part of medical practice, routinely and actively monitoring what her patients eat so they get the most out of their treatment.

 

This synergistic approach to nutrition led to her starting up her own company alongside her husband to develop and market dietary supplements in France, with Oenobiol launching in 1985. The first product offered was a moisturiser containing essential fatty acids.

In 1989, taking inspiration for her patients’ experiences, Béjot launched an innovative concept in sun- and skincare: a tanning supplement which did not colour skin but rather offered increased protection from harmful elements when taking in a bit of sun. Over the years Oenobiol Suncare products have been the subject matter of a vast number of research studies as well as multiple clinical studies and today Oenobiol Suncare products – unmistakeably the company’s leading line of products – are number one in France in the suncare beauty supplement segment.
