Dr Gobac is a home grown label of highly effective cosmeceutical products, I have been lucky enough in the past to review this brand and I absolutely fell head over heels in love with it.
Today I get to interview Dr Gobac , here goes ...


Please share a little about yourself and what inspired you to create this brand?
I have been involved in healing people most of my life, as a medical practitioner as well as naturopath, or in other words practitioner of integrated medicine. The skin as a living organ has always been the most fascinating to me personally, especially the process of aging and the repair and mechanisms involved. Irrespective of which angle you look at this human organism, it is always possible to stimulate it to repair and cure itself.

It is the body's inner, inherent ability to restore things to normality, but often the mechanisms and triggers to do so are hidden and need to be “un-locked” through the use of our intellectual and scientific skills and abilities.

The main visible sign of skin aging is the reduction in the repair of collagen fibers, which create the majority of the skin matrix. Cells that are in charge of its production "fall asleep" at about age of 30, but they don't die off. On the other side, cellular orientation, function and communication, as well as their hormonal stimulation are deteriorating through the years. It is a normal genetically predisposed process of aging.
With the intelligent introduction of polypeptides, amino acids, oligosaccharides, phyto-hormones (hormones of plant origin), as well as variety of other plant extracts and actives, in the environment of these cells it is possible to "wake them up" and boost the process of collagen repair, cellular communication, new cell re-birth through stem cell activation, at any stage of life. Developing skin care range that could do all of this and assist people to feel and look younger and healthier was my inspiration.

How would you describe your brand in a nutshell?
It is modern, technologically advanced brand that combines the wisdom of many natural extracts and ingredients with the advancement of modern science and technology. It is tailored to be simple and practical to use, but through the concept of working with dermo-intelligence and the use of a variety of bio-boosters, is an exceptionally active brand that will provide visible changes in the skin in a short period of time.

What would you consider to be unique about your brand?
The use of bio-boosters, stem cell activators, bio-identical natural ingredients and plant extracts that will work with skin dermo-intelligence on a process of awakening the skin’s inner ability to repair and restore. The result will be the reversal, repair and prevention of the visible signs of aging.

How many stores/branches do you have and where are they located?
Our product is available through all Placecol salons, many independent salons country wide, selected Edgars and Red Square stores and Camelot Spas.

What ‘piece of advice’ would you most like to share with people considering a start -up business?
The most important thing is to have a well-defined goal, which is a combination of your knowledge, experience and dream. This is the correct mixture of ingredients to have best formula of success. Hard work and patience are also compulsory, as well as objective for yourself to be able to operate within the boundaries of comfort in such a way as to not to compromise on your creativity.

The challenge as a business is to stay authentic and true to your brand, how do you achieve this?
I have a defined goal and something original to share with people. Don’t compare your thoughts, projects or business with others. There are no similar businesses, projects or brands. They will, however, become like one of many if you start thinking of them that way – a mere imitation of something else and not your original thought.

What do you love most about being an entrepreneur?
The ability to be free thinker, put your dreams and visions in action and see them turn into reality.

What has your journey so far taught you {about yourself or in general}? Has it changed your life in any way?
My journey feels like it has just begun. It has taught me how much more there is to learn and how humbling the experience actually is - there is always something more and greater waiting around each curve. It made me accept myself with all my strengths and weaknesses, but also empowered me to change and learn from every person or situation that I found myself in.

How does the future look as far as ‘dreams and visions’ for your brand?
It is exciting. Every new chapter brings a new story line that we embrace and follow. Our brand is trying to be the brand to cause changes in every aspect of a person’s health, happiness and beauty. We are striving to make people understand their health and the changes that they are experiencing throughout their lives. We want them to have the tools to alter, modify and improve their health and skin at any moment that it needs attention. This is why we are continuously developing new products and concepts, which are, and will in the future revolutionise skin care, anti-aging non-invasive care, and the prevention and improvement of any aspect of skin life.

I personally adore this brand , it is super effective , affordable and really 'loves' the skin (meaning no reactions, bumps and lumps) despite being a highly active cosmeceutical.
