Our history and our values

Ducray, a story made in France

The story of the Ducray brand began in a hairdressing salon, with a bold visionary: Albert Ducray.

The son of a dermatologist, he noticed that the powdered water-soluble soaps used to make shampoos had alkaline properties that made hair damaged and dull.
He created his own range of shampoos, called Lik’s Savons, the first shampoos to provide a solution for dermatological indications, and available in individual doses.
This was cutting-edge innovation back then! 

Albert Ducray also explored a new distribution channel suited to the medical positioning of his products: dispensing pharmacies. His meeting with Mr Pierre FABRE in 1969, was a decisive step in the brand's expansion and development.
