Waldencast’s co-founder and chief growth officer, Hind Sebti, is Forbes Middle East’s July cover star. This immense honor is a testament to the global impact and talent of Sebti, and in recognition of the success of Waldencast. Sebti joins other visionaries such as Warren Buffet, Sara Blakey and Bill Gates as a Forbes cover star.

Forbes Middle East’s Nancy Bahmad spoke to Sebti about how she balances running a publicly listed company with incubating and growing beauty startups, whilst also offering vital mentorship to fresh talent in the industry. In the article, Bahmad and Sebti discuss her illustrious career at P&G and L’Oréal, and how she came to form Waldencast with co-founder Michel Brousset. 

Throughout the piece, industry experts such as Rania El Khatib praise Waldencast’s unique positioning and dedicated platform to help brands grow and scale, and speak to Sebti’s diligence, vision and creativity.

“While many female founders of beauty brands are well-versed in the challenges and rewards of becoming entrepreneurs in an industry they love, few are also able to view the journey from the perspective of an investor and head of a listed company. This cannot be said of Hind Sebti, Moroccan Cofounder and Chief Growth Officer of Waldencast, a Nasdaq-listed holding company that aims to build a global best-in- class beauty and wellness operating platform by developing, acquiring, accelerating, and scaling conscious, high-growth, purpose-driven brands,” says Bahmad.

Our portfolio brands Glaze, whind and Kjaer Weis all are celebrated, alongside Milk Makeup and Obagi, under our PLC. We are immensely proud to see Sebti’s incredible talent and prowess recognized in the global sphere, and to celebrate this important milestone with her.
