Margaret Dabbs needs no introduction. We all know her brand is the absolute go to for our every hand and foot need. With this in mind, we decided to find out why she was so inspired to create what is now globally recognised as a brand that provides effective, long lasting anti-ageing for both hands and feet and why, given this, she was so happy to work with us here at Bath & Unwind.
Why are you pleased to be a part of Bath & Unwind?
Margaret was keen to partner her brand Margaret Dabbs London with top operators in the beauty sector and was therefore drawn to Bath & Unwind as a premier retailer of beauty products on the web. Bath & Unwind are looking for unique and effective beauty products from around the world which are luxurious and yet completely effective. The Margaret Dabbs London product range achieves this by fusing together the best of medical with the best of beauty to produce a unique range of effective, luxurious products for hands and feet. We at Margaret Dabbs London believe that there is nothing better on the market.
Could you tell us a little bit about Margaret?
Margaret Dabbs is passionate about hands and feet. She is the celebrated podiatrist and foot expert who founded her first foot clinic in London in 1998 in private consulting rooms in the Harley Street area of Central London. She decided to create the Margaret Dabbs London brand by opening foot clinics and nails spas across the UK and internationally, introducing teams of both qualified podiatrists and professional beauticians to perform her unique treatments, including the now world renowned Medical Pedicure. She also crafted her own line of award-winning products for use in her clinics and for sale to the general public. These were designed to bridge a gap she saw in the market for the provision of expert, credible, results driven foot and hand treatments and products
What makes this brand different?
Margaret thought that beauty products for the feet did not work on a treatment level and that the treatment remedies which were available were often unpleasant to use and frankly did not work. She sourced ingredients from around the world and formulated products to meet the demands and needs of her patients whilst ensuring that the scent, look and feel of these products was unlike anything that had been produced previously, products that were beautifying, anti-ageing and luxurious but also exceptionally effective on a treatment level.
