Oenobiol is a brand born from the medical experience of Marie Béjot, founder of Oenobiol.
Daughter and granddaughter of a doctor, Marie Béjot, a nutritionist, drew on her childhood in Africa and from her father, a fervent botanist, her taste for nature and medicinal plants. She grew up in a family where food played an integral part in preventing illness. It is this vision that has guided her during all these years and that has guided her towards medical studies.
She began her medical training in Dakar and completed her studies in Paris with a diploma in nutrition physiology and diet therapy.
With a foundation in nutrition, and with the help of her husband, she launched her business to develop and market the first nutritional supplements in France. In 1985, she launched the Oenobiol brand, with her first fatty acid-based moisturising product.
In 1978, Marie Béjot opened her first medical beauty facility in Paris, dedicated to ageing and weight issues. Her medical training had given her an awareness of the importance of nutrition, and she systematically suggested a nutritional plan to improve the effectiveness of her treatments.
In 1989, inspired by her patients’ experiences, Marie Béjot launched an innovative concept: a self-tan supplement that does not colour the skin, but helps to protect it and provide a better tan. Oenobiol Solaire has been the subject of extensive research and numerous clinical studies.
Today, Oenobiol Solaire products are the market’s leading beauty tanning supplements in France. And undeniably the Brand’s flagship range.
