Brand Description

Sisley is a French company that creates and distributes skincare and make-up products, along with very fine perfumes.

The d’Ornano family has been specialised in the creation of cosmetics for three generations and has created several world-renowned brands.

When Hubert d’Ornano founded Sisley in 1976, the aromatherapy and phytotherapy wave had not yet hit Europe. The use of botanical active ingredients and essential oils in beauty products was still a highly innovative concept.

Hubert d’Ornano understood very early on that the plant world offers an extensive field of research (there are around 800 000 different plants on Earth) given that the life of man is closely dependent on that of plants – to breathe, eat and heal.

He was a true pioneer, combining know-how and a rigorous approach to specialise his research laboratories in Phytocosmetology.

Comments: Sisley’s beauty products are distributed in more than 100 countries. It has opened several new maisons—a 2,675-sq.ft. space in the Meatpacking District in New York City (the company’s first maison-spa in the US), another in Shanghai’s historic district of ZhangYuan (its first in Asia Pacific), Warsaw, Poland and Paris (its second in the city).

Inside these elegant spaces customers can experience unique treatments like “Le Grand Soin For Hair.” Inspired by the ancient practice of Shiatsu massage, this treatment features an uninterrupted sequence of massages and drainages of the neck, back and scalp combined with hot hair wraps. The combination of the massage and application of Hair Rituel by Sisley products stimulates the hair fiber, according to the company.

In other services-related news, the Sisley Spa at Hôtel Byblos Saint-Tropez in the South of France was renovated and the company opened a spa at The Dominick, a hotel in New York City.

For the fourth year in a row, Sisley was the official beauty licensee for Roland-Garros, home to the French Open tennis tournament. The brand created a travel-sized kit of two sun care products for face and body in packaging with terracotta accents that echo the famous clay surface of the Roland-Garros courts. Tennis player Chloe Paquet uses the brand’s Super Soin Solaire Face SPF 50+  and Super Soin Solaire Body SPF 30 products.

One of Sisley’s latest launches is Eaux Rêvées, a collection of six fragrances inspired by different generations of the d’Ornano family.

The d’Ornano’s family-run French company leans toward luxury, but it also focused on sustainability. For example, an updated formula of its All day All Year skin care product now comes in a new airless glass packaging in which the pump separates from the glass bottle, making it 100% recyclable, and its Phyto-Rouge Shine lipstick comes in a refillable format.

Sisley-Paris is a French luxury brand. It was founded in 1972 as a perfume company. Hubert d’Ornano acquired the company in 1976 and renamed it Sisley in honor of Alfred Sisley, the French impressionist. Today, the company creates, produces and distributes high-performance, plant-based skin care, makeup, fragrance and hair care products.

It’s a family affair at this international beauty firm with the next generation now at the helm.

Starting out at the company as a sales representative in France, Philippe d’Ornano developed Sisley with his parents, Isabelle and Hubert, transforming it into an international company. Today, he is chairman of the board.

After having begun her professional career in the US, Christine d’Ornano joined Sisley in 1993. She founded the Mexican subsidiary, developed the brand in Latin America and then opened up and developed the British and Irish markets. She is now global vice president at the company.

Elisabeth d’Ornano, who was the “face of Sisley” in the 1990s, now devotes her time to her association, The Elisabeth d’Ornano Association for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Her daughter is now involved with Sisley. In 2017, after her first professional experience abroad and with her diploma from Brown University in hand, Daria d’Ornano became head of Sisley’s creative studio.

Founded in 1978 by husband and wife team Hubert and Isabelle d’Ornano, Sisley has become a leading player in the prestige cosmetics market with sales in more than 90 countries throughout the world. Eighty-five percent of sales come from exports.

In May, family-owned, privately held Sisley Cosmetics and the Majestic Barriere Hotel in Cannes opened U Spa Barriere, a 450-square meter spa with views of the seaside and wide range of services incorporating Sisley’s products.

On the new products front, Sisley is tackling skin on the face and hands. The firm has expanded the Confort Extréme range with a new treatment for dry and dehydrated hands. The formulation contains panthenol and harpagophytum, a plant that is said to provide a calming effect on sore joints.

For the face, All Day All Year is a new anti-aging facial care lotion that offers UVA/UVB protection via complex of microencapsulated filters that Sisley contends safely protects the skin for eight hours without penetration. The blend also includes apple skin and white willow extracts that work as an anti-free radical/anti-stress shield and phytoceramide and glycoprotein-rich rice and sesame extracts that help strengthen the barrier function of the epidermis.

Sources estimate Sisley’s total sales to be approximately $662 million, with the vast majority coming from skin care.

This Paris-based firm prides itself on creating top-notch formulations, such as Sisleya Global Anti-Age—which this year is celebrating a decade of success battling line and wrinkles—and Fluid Body Sun Cream SPF 30, a new sun care product that contains alkekengi calyx extract, which protects cells DNA from UV rays by preserving DNA molecular integrity and stimulating collagen synthesis.

The company has also released a trio of new sparking fragrances, simply known as Eau de Sisley 1, 2 and 3.
