Margaret Dabbs London sells a minority holding to Best World International

The shareholders of Margaret Dabbs London have sold a minority stake in the company to Best World International.

Recognised by Tatler magazine as “the go-to place for feet and hand treatments around the world”, Margaret Dabbs London was founded in 2004, and became famous in 2007 after being approached by Harrods to open a clinic on the fifth floor of its flagship Central London store. Since then Margaret Dabbs London has established a total of nine clinics throughout the UK, and four internationally in the Middle East and Spain. Alongside the clinics, the company has developed its own range of luxury hand, foot and leg products which are sold through its own clinics as well as through leading well-known retailers.

Founded in 1990, Best World International is a Singapore-headquartered company specialising in the development and distribution of premium skin care, personal care, nutritional and wellness products.

Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised the seller in this transaction.
