30 Iconic Years of Marie France

In the Philippines, body care has always been a thriving business, and with the continuous advancement of technology there is no reason not to look good and feel good. There are so many innovative approaches to slimming, body sculpting, and weight loss, and while going under the knife can be the answer to many, there are a few who offer such treatments without having to go through an invasive procedure.

For three decades, Marie France has established itself as an authority when it comes to scientific, non-invasive slimming. Through the years, the company has stayed true to its campaign in reshaping beauty: “No pills, no exercise, no fad diets, no surgery.” Since it opened in the Philippines in 1985, it has been a game changer that revolutionized women’s perspective on slimming and health.

Held at the Nobu Garden Patio in City of Dreams Manila, the venue was filled with Marie France patrons, partners, and Iconic ambassadors who have been a huge part in making the company reach its big 3-0.
