OZALYS: The will of a passionate and determined woman

Isabelle Guyomarch is an inspiring and seasoned professional in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics universes and in 2013 she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

In the face of adversity, this woman of character was unable to find beauty products that were adapted to her particular needs. Undoubtedly, curative treatments and their undesirable side effects such as olfactory and sensory ultra-sensitivity prevented her from continuing her daily skincare routine with her usual cosmetic products.

In her fight against the disease, Isabelle then had the idea for an ambitious and innovative project: to fill the gap in the traditional dermo-cosmetics market by creating a range of beauty and personal hygiene products created especially for women affected by the disease, which would safely bring them comfort and reassurance.

She embarked on the adventure, supported from the start by her two daughters Lisa and Cécile, and the in-house teams (80% female) of CCI Productions, one of the leading French manufacturers of perfumes and high-end cosmetics, of which she is the general director.

After three years of research and innovation, Ozalys is now a French brand offering a complete (and still expanding) range of dermo-cosmetic products adapted to the needs of women who, in their fight against breast cancer, refuse to sacrifice their femininity

« My story is that of thousands of women around the world. Like many cancer survivors I felt the need to give meaning to this traumatic event. What was ultimately resilience became, thanks to the women in the CCI Productions Group, a tremendous business venture. »
