Both discovering a passion for skin care in their own right, they crossed paths and started something extraordinary.
Claudio DiFiore, co-founder of Bio France Lab, is Italian, born and raised in Belgium. When Claudio was a child, his mother managed the estate of a baroness in Belgium, where he spent Saturdays learning etiquette and observing how the aristocracy of Belgium took care of themselves. Claudio’s mother used all-natural ingredients, searching for the fountain of youth in her garden for her daily self-care routine. Claudio’s dream was inspired by his mother. He wanted to make the aging process as flawless as possible for less fortunate people.
Claudio studied horticulture, floristry, and podiatry in Europe. As a podiatrist, Claudio learned about the different aspects of the human body and received great joy giving his patients instant relief. As a horticulture expert and florist, Claudio was fascinated by the number of species and the combination of plants and scents. He soon realized that much can be done with the power of botanicals. In 2004, Claudio created an advanced organic botanical bath and body line using time-tested home remedies with pure essential oils. At the same time, Claudio expanded his skin care and retail knowledge, working with top industry leaders. After the success of Claudio’s bath and body line, he helped many other companies achieve success creating herbal and botanical based products. This upwardly advanced his career to the position of a managing director of a French skin care company sold in the United States and around the world. As a managing director, Claudio’s primary focus was assisting in the formulation of product, branding, and customer service.
In 2011, while enjoying a drink in a country western bar, Claudio crossed paths with Marc Rosengarten, co-founder of Bio France Lab. After dating for several months, they started talking about life events and found out they shared the same passion in skin care. In Marc’s early twenties, he was prone to oily skin and breakouts. He lacked self-confidence and was bullied in school. Inspired by his father, who was a chemical engineer and CFO, Marc went to UCLA as a pre-medical major. As a student, Marc was a sales associate in high end retail stores. With sensitive oily skin, he was constantly trying skin care products in the store that would soothe and mattify his skin. Ultimately, Marc would buy store products and add additional ingredients for greater results. This is how he began the path to become a maskaholic. Marc’s passion to achieve perfectly balanced skin has taken him from a pre-medical and chemistry major at UCLA to a career in skin care and a business degree. Together, Claudio and Marc complement each other perfectly in life and business.
