Hubert d’Ornano, a visionary creator and daring entrepreneur, has headed the Sisley brand for over thirty years, defending its three fundamental values: innovation, quality and entrepreneurial spirit.
Isabelle d’Ornano, his wife and Vice-President, is chiefly in charge of creation and advertising, while his son Philippe is General Manager and directs the company’s International development. His daughter, Christine d’Ornano is Assistant General Manager, also heading one of the group’s subsidiaries in Britain.
Working alongside them are a closely-knit management team and several thousand employees of almost one hundred different nationalities, who all contribute to Sisley’s world-wide success.
Sisley is one of the world leaders in luxury cosmetics and boasts one of the strongest growth rates in the industry. Sisley products are marketed in over 90 countries on all five continents. Sisley controls the major part of its distribution through a network of around thirty subsidiaries, with over 85 percent of its revenues generated from exports.
The majority of Sisley’s products are manufactured in France, mainly in its Blois plant, while its Research and Development laboratories are located just outside Paris.
Sisley owes its success largely to the quality of its products. It offers targeted skincare solutions for every skin type.
The creators at Sisley strive to offer products with the highest efficacy and the best tolerance, combining knowledge and anticipation of consumer needs, creativity, perfectionism, rigour and attention to detail during the elaboration of every new product.
Sisley has always insisted on its products being available from outlets that provide their clients with advice and best-of-kind service. The brand is present in the world’s finest department stores, perfumeries and beauty institutes. It maintains a strong relationship with its retailers and trains its sales staff to the highest standards in order to ensure satisfaction for the men and women who use or wish to discover the products.
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.
The Sisley Production, administration and research laboratories of the company are located in France. Sisley products are manufactured mainly in its modern factory in Blois Loir-et- Cher.
At Saint- Ouen Alms in the Paris region, the new Research and Development commissioned in January 2011, includes 32 acres, laboratory research and development, logistics and most administrative services platform the company.
The headquarters is located in the heart of Paris, Avenue de Friedland.
