THE PÉRGATIS STORY
PÉRGATIS is a global brand that focusses on Haircare and the Sleep experience with 100% natural quality solutions. Building on the success of the hair product, and responding to strong customer demand, PÉRGATIS also introduced a 100% natural eyebrow product.
The Pérgatis journey started more than 15 years ago, when the founder Dr. Amir Jafri, who had started to experience hair loss, was introduced to a natural haircare product in a small village in Malaysia. Being a medical doctor, he had little belief in such therapies and took some time to get convinced to use the product. The results were simply unbelievable. With time, it was clear that the product carried a huge potential. This is when Dr. Jafri started to cultivate a strong relationship with the product owner and also invested in the business. The rest as they say is history. Sales grew exponentially in Asia after market coverage was expanded through distributors and the product was taken through several phases of development to improve its efficacy and stability. The business was recently restructured to form Pérgatis.
The name Pérgatis is derived from the word Pergamon, an ancient city now known as Bergama in present day Turkey, famous for Aelius Galenus. Aelius Galenus or Galen is one of the most accomplished men in the ancient world to have revolutionised knowledge of human health. Pérgatis pays homage to this ancient city made famous by Galen as well as by its status is a major cultural centre of the ancient Greek world (281-133BC).
Dr. Amir Jafri is a medical doctor by training and is an alumnus of the University of Oxford UK and INSEAD France.
He is a senior business executive with significant international experience of running large businesses for leading multinational Healthcare and LifeScience companies like ICI (Astrazeneca, Schering-Plough), Rhone Poulenc Rorer (now Sanofi), Bristol Myers Squibb and Arysta LifeScience.
With a proven track record of repeated successful turnarounds at the country and regional level, Dr. Jafri has been a well sought after manager in the industries he has operated in.
He gave up his corporate career to pursue his vision to provide global consumers with natural solutions for their day to day issues.
