Description of the company's activity :
Léon and Noëlle Maurel launched Phydra with a simple philosophy : offer quality health and beauty products.
Phydra first opened its doors to the public in November 1995 in Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius. It was an instant success. A second shop opened in the Caudan Waterfront the following year. As word of mouth spread throughout Mauritius, stores in Curepipe and Grand Bay have since sprung up.
With this success, Phydra began to produce its very own line of perfumes, made with rare extracts and alcohol distilled from Mauritian sugar cane.
People often wonder what the name Phydra signifies. It is in fact an acronym coined by Noëlle Maurel from ‘ph balance’ and ‘hydration.’
Phydra is proudly a Mauritian company. Our main manufacturing facility is located in Port Louis, though we also import products from Europe and home décor items from the Orient. 100% vegetable based, Phydra products embody French excellence with the exotic Mauritian touch.
