If we have to think about role models or women that inspired us in our path most of them come from nothing but they had everything inside: the courage to keep going, no matter what, and the certainty that you will arrive somewhere.
We are three sisters called Sangalli and born in Milan. We have grown up in Milan and we are currently living between Milan and Paris. The power and the soul of these two cities inspired us most in building our cosmetic company. In Milan we are currently living in Zona Risorgimento, in Paris in the 2nd arrondissement, Places des Victoires. Two well known areas, full of hidden gems and secret streets. These two cities we live in give us energy. Paris gives us French beauté: the natural freshness, the simplicity and the essentiality of aesthetic details. Milano gives us Italian inner bellezza: the flavour, the passion for life and traditions. A life between these two cities is what we commonly define: inside out balance.
We have studied and worked in the US (NYC and Chicago), in the UK (London) and in Portugal (Lisbon). We are really close so we have been visiting each other during our “lives abroad”; in a way, we all lived the different experiences abroad of each of us. We have really complementary profiles: a business background (L. Bocconi University and HEC Paris) and technical competences with a degree in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technologies (Università degli Studi di Pavia). Since the beginning, we all wanted to build a company that targeted women; we have grown up being 4 sisters, we have experienced on our skin what it means to be a woman from different perspectives, ages and problems. Femininity it is all we know about. La Beauté, bellezza, is a daily topic in women’s life. We have to admit that everything around us talks about beauty and it is a never ending story: we all want to be beautiful and feeling beautiful is a source of limitless energy and power.
We also shared the same observation: the existing beauty routines are too complex and are not adapted to be used anytime, you really have to dedicate a lot of your time to most of the existing treatments. Since we had in the team the technical competences of a cosmetic expert, the solution was easily found: adesso, a cosmetic brand that combines effective beauty treatments and our time saving needs. Behind there is a concept of “return to basic beauty gestures”: cleansing, protection, hydration — all you need for a healthier skin in the long term. We daily change and shape each other in the way of approaching life. It’s amazing how far we have gone together. We are really different, both from a personal and professional point of view, and we constantly balance each other in our way of working and living. If we have to think about role models or women that inspired us in our path most of them come from nothing but they had everything inside: the courage to keep going, no matter what, and the certainty that you will arrive somewhere. We dream of a world full of adesso women.
Adesso means now in Italian; we have chosen this name to remember women that they can take care of themself anytime, “now” is always the good time. Also, it is a way of living: to be always ready and open to new things. If not “adesso”, when? Adesso is a skincare routine made of light textures, leave-on products and packaging prêt-à-porter. Taking a self-care moment in a non-stop life has never been easier. Our products will be available exclusively on our website www.adessobeauty.com from September 24th (Italy and France). We have more products and projects on pipeline, 2021 will be full of surprises. We’ve been working on this project over the last year and a half. We’ve split our company in 3 divisions, each sister is leading one of them. There is also a fourth division where we work all together where it’s all about our “dreams and future”.
