Andrew first found a passion for the world of skincare when working for a French beauty company called Ionithermie back in the mid-1980s. While Ionithermie was a hugely successful body treatment, giving instant results, he wanted to find an equally suitable facial skincare line, again one that gave results. In 1992 Andrew took on the distribution of Phytomer, a wonderful marine based range and an expert in thalassotherapy in bringing the benefits of the sea to mind, face and body. While Phytomer was, and still is today, a giant in the marine world, he continued to search for the holy grail of the skincare world, knowing it had to be French! Like their wine, for Andrew there is no better skincare experts in the world and history proves that very clearly.
After travelling to all of the European beauty trade shows, finally, in 1994 the chance came to secure Gatineau, a brand steeped in history and of course French. It was at this moment he knew the future was all about Gatineau!
Andrew works closely with Gatineau Laboratories in Paris to bring you the latest formulations, innovations and high-performance products. He is our resident QVC Brand Ambassador, regularly presenting shows and informing customers on skincare tips, tricks and trends.
