Tell us about yourself
The Sabry family business was conceived over 15 years ago when my Father, Abdul Sabry, began experimenting with Shea butter and other oils. He developed a moisturizing formula that greatly enhanced the quality of his skin. After a shower or bath, he used it on his face, arms, legs, feet, and even his hair. It greatly improved the quality of his skin. By applying the shea butter moisturizer on a consistent basis, his dry skin and dark spots on his knees and elbows disappeared. He shared his newly developed formula with the rest of the family, and they all experienced beneficial results. He always instilled in his family the importance of natural healing through the use of herbs and whole, plant-based foods.
I was inspired by my Dad to return to natural health and simple living after experiencing a period of troubled skin. Following my Father’s path, I healed my skin by changing my eating habits and using natural skin products. Sabry’s skin and hair care line was created out of a desire to share the products that have helped the Sabry family maintain healthy hair and glowing skin. We stand by our products 100% and use natural and organic herbs and oils.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
One of my most significant accomplishments as a business owner is receiving several testimonials from happy customers encouraging new people to try our products.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things I had to learn as a business owner was to put my emotions aside and listen to what the customer would like to Tre.
