At his « Haute Coiffure » salons, Roger Delbôve practiced with dedication and passion the art of capillary care. Observing so many scalps damaged by chemical treatments, Roger Delbôve came to realize that natural products were the best solution to treat hair and skin's deficiency or weakness.
1950s. Whilst expanding his network of salons, Roger Delbôve, an inveterate researcher, combined conferences and research to deepen his knowledge of the biochemical mechanisms of the skin. To become one of the top 10 cosmetologists in his time.
Dissatisfied with the products available on the market and sure of his acquired knowledge, Roger Delbôve convinces his wife, Marion - former collaborator of Helena Rubinstein in Belgium - to join him in developing a treatment based on the principle of homeostasis. A treatment that allows the skin to regain its balance and natural functions, without any tricks.
The Crème Unique is created in the Delbôve laboratory in Brussels with the best ingredients they could think of. A journalist found its results so bewitching that he called the product "Crème Sorcière" in his article. Marion loved it and kept the name! A star is born. The iconic formula was soon to be joined by the Eau Sorcière, a powerful botanical essence. Together, the Crème & Eau Sorcière form the famous Magic Ritual, basis of all treatment.
Marion and Roger Delbôve continued their research in order to expand the benefits of the iconic formulas to other more-specific uses. Thus were born the Auxiliary, the Elixirs, the Specifics, the Body Cares, the Hair care ... each created to restore the homeostasis of the skin, every day. From head to toe.
For the past 25 years, Gina d'Ansembourg has used Marion Delbôve formula’s and listened carefully to her tips & advice.
When Marion died at the age of 80 years old, Gina decided to make these «magical secrets» available to a wider circle. Not only to ensure their continuity, but also because she believed that such benefits were too precious not to be shared! She is now the owner of Delbôve and custodian of its heritage.
The Brussels and Antwerp boutiques are unique establishments where one can (re)discover the preciously-kept secrets of these exceptional botanical treatments ... And learn how they can restore the skin's healing power – day after day, after day.
