10 Minutes with Margaret de Heinrich de Omorovicza
Omorovicza has taken the skincare world by storm with its mineral-rich, anti-ageing formulas. To celebrate the launch of the brand at harrods.com, we talked to Co-Founder Margaret de Heinrich de Omorovicza, who founded the company along with her husband Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza.
What inspired you to create Omorovicza?
We were inspired by the curative powers of the incredible mineral-rich thermal waters found in Budapest. Stephen’s family owned the oldest and most special source in Budapest for hundreds of years, which was also hugely inspiring.
Tell us a bit about the ingredients used in the products?
Omorovicza works with the Nobel Prize-winning Hungarian Laboratory of Dermatology, which is famous for discovering Vitamin C. They assist us in transforming the minerals found in thermal waters, so that they are unusually potent. These super-potent waters are absolutely key to the Omorovicza range as they work to heighten the anti-ageing, healing effects of other elements used in our products – e.g. gold for its anti-inflammatory properties, moor mud for its deep cleansing detoxifying effect and the 20 different minerals which are the keystone to all Omorovicza products.
Who is the typical Omorovicza client?
The typical Omorovicza client is a woman who wants the best products available to look and feel her most youthful. She has a global outlook, is interested in looking great, stylish and wants immediate results from her skincare of choice, while avoiding synthetic ingredients.
Do you have any advice to help new Omorovicza customers choose the right regime for their skin type?
We have highly trained employees who work at the Omorovicza counter at Harrods – as well as our amazing facialists.
What is your best-selling product, and why do you think it’s so popular?
Thermal Cleansing Balm, Deep Cleansing Mask and all of our Gold Range are our most popular products – I think people love them because they are incredibly effective with both immediate and long-term results.
Products aside, what is your top tip for flawless skin?
Exfoliating regularly is my top tip for flawless skin, on top of regular cleansing and using targeted serums and moisturisers. Drinking lots of water and getting the right balance of vitamins and minerals in your diet is also absolutely essential, as well as plenty of sleep.
What’s next for the brand?
We are constantly looking for innovative ways to use minerals found in our waters in their most potent form, and have several exciting launches coming up.
