We had the good fortune of connecting with Faissal Ghanem and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Faissal, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My journey to start ‘Marvesol®’ began after years of trying to cure my Rosacea. For more than a decade, I suffered from constant redness and inflammation of my face, and not a single treatment or medication was effective in managing it. My doctors and dermatologists told me this would just have to be something I live with for the rest of my life. After giving up on taking medications and using topical creams to help treat my condition, I sought out traditional medicine. I found an ancient book of herbal remedies that had been passed down through multiple of my family’s generations. I was skeptical at first – but the results spoke for themselves. Within weeks, the condition that was deemed un-curable was significantly reduced, within a month – the redness and swelling were gone, and through sustained follow-up, I was rosacea free for the first time in over a decade. Not wanting to base the success of the remedies on one case, I reached out to friends and individuals I had encountered who had rosacea and asked them to try out the regiment as well. It was a massive success, and they encouraged me to bring this marvel of traditional medicine to the public. With results in hand, I approached an accomplished Ph.D. Chemist to help me transform the old herbal remedy into a rosacea treatment formula. With his skills and knowledge on board, it took years of hard work, several experiments, and many batches of test products to finally turn the old natural blend of botanical ingredients and essential oils into an effective cream.
This cream brought tremendous results. People who tried it shared with us before and after pictures, and we were ecstatic with the results. The overwhelmingly positive response from our users motivated us to research more old remedies and formulate other natural products for Acne, Eczema, anti-ageing and other skin concerns. DISTINGUÉ LLC. launched our first product, “MARVESOL® Rosacea After Care” cream, and other products are in the manufacturing process that will soon be available in the market.
Living with rosacea is challenging and can affect one’s self-esteem and self-confidence. During the twelve years that I spent suffering from Rosacea, I came across all the problems a person with rosacea could face daily. Discovering an effective treatment for Rosacea was the turning point of my career and it invigorated me to bring this positive change to the life of many people in similar situations.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Living with rosacea could definitely be challenging. It might affect your health because of having to continually take medications to avoid flare-ups and it might affect your self-esteem especially in one’s daily interactions with people. We know the market nowadays is saturated with chemical based products that contain ingredients that are harsh on the skin and can lead to a plethora of side effects. What sets us apart from others is that Marvesol® products are formulated with botanical ingredients and natural essential oils which are safe, effective, and gentle on the skin. Our business is evidence based- after using Marvesol® Rosacea After Care cream our customers reported significant improvement in their skin complexion and a decrease in the inflammation, redness, and blemishes. In addition, Marvesol® cream works on perfecting skin texture and tone and gives the skin a balanced, healthier look.
During the twelve years in which I suffered from rosacea, I tried many products but with little results. Every time I tried something new, I would be hit with a new side effect of the medication or product. Realizing that I have to live with rosacea was the turning point that alerted me about the importance of educating myself about rosacea. I began researching the connection between rosacea flares and my daily life – whether it was food, drinks, activities, or stress. Things that seemed almost unavoidable in our current day and age. I knew that lifestyle changes alone would not be able to completely rid me of the rosacea. From there I dug into old natural remedies until I found an effective remedy for rosacea that had been passed down through many generations. This was the turning point of my career, and it invigorated me to bring this positive change to all those people in the same boat. We have compiled the years of research that we conducted, and sought expert opinions on rosacea – and now we offer them on our website for all to view: www.marvesol.com
DISTINGUÉ LLC. is based in Los Angeles California, formulates, manufactures, and distributes natural cosmetic skincare products. We did not reach this point in business in the blink of an eye. After consistent hard work, we were able to transform an ancient remedy into an effective cream with an innovative proprietary blend for Rosacea treatment. Following this came several other challenges and business formalities like market analysis, patent, trademarks, packaging, labeling, website development, and social media pages. The increasing online demand drove us to heavily invest in e-commerce in order to cater to a broader clientele. Like many other small businesses, COVID19 has affected our business too, but we are optimistic about the future as we re-emerge from the pandemic.
‘Marvesol® Rosacea After Care’ cream helps reduce rosacea, redness, and blemishes. It helps one regain confidence and the ability to perform activities of daily life without worrying about flare ups and the skin condition. We feel utmost joy in helping others with our discovery. Marvesol® is determined to make a positive impact on all those who are struggling with rosacea and we want to let them know that they’re not alone in this journey. We are working day and night to make their life blemish-free.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite spot for dinner in Los Angeles is Bestia an Italian Restaurant in Downtown LA. For drinks, 71Above is on the 71st floor and has the best panoramic views of the city. Definitely you will enjoy the drink and the view from above. For lunch I prefer The Carnival Restaurant a Lebanese Restaurant at Woodman Ave. in Sherman Oaks. The food is really authentic, delicious and they are generous. As we all know who ever visits LA would love to see Beverly Hills, Santa Monica Pier, Manhattan Beach, Laguna Niguel Beach and Hollywood Blvd, and of course, the Hollywood sign. Getty Museum and Griffith Observatory Would be part of the places to visit. One of my favorite spots at night for a glass of wine is Castaway Burbank you will enjoy the night with the majestic view.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
First of all, I would like to thank my family who supported me throughout this journey and encouraged me to go on. I also extend my gratitude to Dr. Said for his knowledge, expertise, dedication, determination, and time in experimenting and batch testing until finally formulating Marvesol® Rosacea After Care cream. I always believed in what Aristotle said: “Limits Exist Only in The Mind.”
I had the determination to go above and beyond the expectations to find a solution for my skin condition. This success became the source of motivation to spread this positive discovery to others who are suffering from rosacea or to those who gave up on finding a solution for their skin condition. I have always believed in the tremendous value of nature and its healing powers. We researched and delved into ancient remedies and were able to formulate an effective and successful cream derived from botanical ingredients.
