The first stone in the foundation of Martinex was laid in 1992: a private cosmetologist’s office that opened at one of the municipal clinics of Ekaterinburg. This was one of the first places to introduce cosmeceuticals onto the Russian market, where such products were previously unknown. It became quite successful, and the desire to remain at the helm of innovation lead to our partnership with the French laboratory Gernetic Synthese. At this time, in 1996, Martinex was formally registered under its current name and became the first and exclusive distributor of Gernetic cosmeceuticals in Russia.
Shortly after, Martinex has outgrown its operations within a single city and began expanding its network of distributors. The office in Moscow was opened around this time. Our goals were “innovation, efficiency and safety” which proved to be an effective business model. In the following few years, during a period of fast economic growth in Russian Federation, Martinex acquired a reputation of always supplying high-quality advanced products and earned the trust of its partners all around Eastern Europe and Russia.
Specialists of Martinex actively participated in many scientific and commercial conferences around the world on the subject of aesthetic medicine. Close partnership with French Mesotherapy Society and other international organizations has led to the formation of National (Russian) Mesotherapy Society with the purpose of popularizing the technique in Russia. NMS regularly publishes a scientific journal “Mesotherapy” in order to keep the specialists of the field always up-to-date on the latest developments in Mesotherapy techniques and new products on the market, as well as other related news. NMS was established and sponsored by Martinex, but today it is an independent organization.
Another specialty of Martinex is high-quality aesthetic laser equipment. We keep a close watch on the latest developments in the industry and we have exclusive contracts with leading laser equipment manufacturers from Cynosure (USA) and Energist (Great Britain) for distribution of their products in Russia.
