At #lab, people believe that beauty is nature’s tool for survival – you protect what you love. With #lab, focus is no longer on the external measures to enhance beauty, instead to shift to a holistic approach; a movement from artificial to natural; from cosmetic repair to on-going prevention; from tropical to ingestible–along with scientific validation that beauty changes everything.

It’s great to be a part of a thriving city-life such as Dubai, but a combination of lifestyle and environmental factors often take a toll on our skin and hair. Enter #lab by Galeries Lafayette, a new clean beauty concept composed entirely of authentic, clean beauty, ethically sourced and natural, with combinations of inside out and food-inspired beauty remedies to use of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

The Beauty Department of Galeries Lafayette has always been recognized for its luxury brands and upholds a standard of premium in-store beauty services. A few of these brands include Chanel, Dior, Tom Ford, YSL Beauty, Estee Lauder, Giorgio Armani, La Mer, Valmont, and La Prairie amongst others. Galeries Lafayette also offers a wide selection of fragrances from local/regional companies alongside international brands in addition to, many exclusivities and limited editions, providing the customers with a dynamic in-store environments for product experimentation.

One of the premium skincare brands available at the #lab is Dr. Murad, a clinical product line with high performance results and scientifically proven formulas used to treat and care for the skin. Another is Sarah Chapman, a skincare specialist who created her award winning products that promise beautifully healthy, radiant, and rejuvenated skin. For those interested in haircare, #lab provides popular brands such as Rahua (pronounced Ra-wa) a hair product line infused with century-old Amazonian Nut Oil as well as, Miriam Quevedo a Spanish cosmetics brand best known for using luxury ingredients such as caviar and applying the same sophisticated anti-aging technologies used in skincare to their haircare line.

For those opting to enhance and tone the skin, NuBODY and NuFACE Trinity are clinically tested therapy treatments to contour and firm aging skin. Loved by Miranda Kerr, these devices are best known for the “5 minute face and body lift” and are classified as today’s latest Micro-current Technology. Lastly, one of the key fragrance brands offered is Valeur Absolu, a French perfume produced using raw materials such as essential oils and plant extracts from natural and pure sources. In addition, exfoliators, skin superfoods, aromatic candles, and face masks are also a part of the galore of product available at the #lab.

The branding ideology for #lab relies on providing the customers effective and on-trend, selective brands as well as exclusivities in the UAE such as Omni and Elline, solely available at Galeries Lafayette. The concept is additionally based on enhancing the customers’ interactive experience by involving fun ‘do it yourself’ activities such as producing your own lipstick shades in 20 minutes with Lipologist, exclusively at #lab. There will also be soothing hand massages using 24k gold infused oils & serums while exploring your favorite beauty products at the launch. Services play a major role at #lab, different types of packages will be sold to enhance the consumer experience, such as skin & hair consultations, facials, and professional hairstyling.

Galeries Lafayette is pleased to be providing the customers with a different category of brands that offer accessible natural, clean, and sustainable options. This movement has grown significantly in the UAE and across the region as this consciousness filters through consumers becoming more aware of their benefits and using key ingredients that are much less harmful to the body.
