MAVALA - who owes its name to the initials of the name of its founder - was established in 1958 by Madeleine van Landeghem.
Like many cosmeticians at that time, she developed a unique nail care product - a revolutionary nail hardener which penetrates the three layers of the nail plate to bond them together. This nail hardener has been copied many times since but has never been equalled. In fact, MAVALA Scientifique Nail Hardener is still one of our best selling products today.
In 1969, MAVALA opened its first professional manicure school in London. Other international operations followed. Since 1994, MAVALA has been working in close collaboration with over thirty French beauty schools who use our products and manicure techniques as part of their curriculum.
Today, MAVALAis distributed in over 110 countries around the world. All our products are still developed and manufactured in Geneva, Switzerland in conformity with the most rigorous quality standards and regulations.
