Lydia Sarfati, founder and CEO of Repechage, was presented with CIDESCO's Médaille du Mérite Award during the organization's 67th Annual World Congress Beauty Gala Dinner. Sarfati was nominated and voted for by the CIDESCO Sections, with the decision being finalized by the Board of Directors of CIDESCO.
The prestigious award has been distributed to members of the organization since 1960. Sarfati was honored with it due to her ongoing and tireless efforts to elevate professional standards and status in esthetics education and the beauty industry. This includes Sarfati playing a large role in bringing the CIDESCO certification program to the United States in 2018.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by CIDESCO, an organization I am so proud to be part of for the last 15 years,” said Sarfati. “I look forward to continuing to represent and work with CIDESCO to elevate the field of esthetics and the beauty industry. I am excited for the new developments that CIDESCO will bring to esthetics industry in the U.S. and abroad.”
