Marie France Bodyline discontinues operations in Indonesia market

All operations under the Marie France Bodyline, Bella Skin Care and Svenson Hair Centre brands have ceased operations in Indonesia, following its parent company Global Beauty International's end of licensing agreement on 19 October 2018.

Global Beauty International said in a public announcement to affected customers that it would be transforming itself to bring its customers "an enhanced and refreshed experience in 2019." They were informed on the morning of 13 February 2019 through SMS, e-mail, websites and social media.

This is unlike its operations in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Macau that are wholly owned by Global Beauty International. Therefore, this transformation is specific to Indonesia and all operations in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Macau remain unaffected. This is in an effort to transform its operations in Indonesia to better align with the standards it upholds in its other markets."

In a statement to Marketing, a spokesperson said, "We are expediting the process of establishing our new Indonesia operations to allow our customers to return to enjoying our range of products, services and treatments in 2019." The company will also be responding to all queries in a prompt manner meanwhile.
