margaret dabbs

Margaret Dabbs is passionate about feet, a fully trained Podiatrist who set up a series of Foot Clinics starting in 1998, and pioneered the now renowned “Medical Pedicure“.

She created a range of foot products to fuse both the health and beauty of the feet after feeling let down by products that were either treatment remedies which were unpleasant to use, or beauty products for feet which were ineffective on a treatment level. Margaret set about sourcing raw ingredients from around the world, mixed these in her consulting rooms and created a range of foot products for use in her clinics. These were highly effective on a treatment level, and gorgeous to use, so unlike anything else seen in the foot care market.

The key super ingredient, around which the Margaret Dabbs products are based, is Australian organic Emu Oil. Renowned for its incredible healing properties, and aboriginal in origin, Emu Oil has been used medicinally for thousands of years.
