About Dr. Jeanne Retief

Jeanne was diagnosed with Panic Disorder in 2015 which forced her to reconsider her life path and views on mental illness. Facing a health and soul crisis, she had to make difficult choices. The human rights career she built with a single-minded focus no longer inspired her, and the symptoms of her diagnosis were wreaking havoc on her life. Seeking peace but still craving a challenge - she created FIGGI Life & Beauty. FIGGI Life is for every woman like her who has struggled, achieved,and still seeks professional and personal purpose. She offers no secrets to happiness, only candid life experiences, a sacred space where its okay NOT to be okay and a judgment-free community. Sensitive skin was a constant symptom of her diagnosis, and so, after completing her Certificate in Advanced Cosmetic Chemistry she released her luxury skincare experience for sensitive souls with dry skin woes. *Jeanne is South African and now lives in Portugal with her husband, toddler and two dogs. She has a PhD in international criminal and humanitarian law, presented on key human rights issues worldwide, and consulted for 15 years in this field.
