Clarins Cosmetics: A Company That Cares About Its Customers And Our Earth...

Clarins is a company defined by its unique expertise in plants and respectful of biodiversity. Using the best plants in their optimal concentration, combining nature, science and respect to always create more efficient and distinct products, that is Clarins!

Plant gold, the most precious, most active and richest part of the plant extract: the essential oil. Designed in 1968 by Jacques Courtin-Clarins, the 100% natural range of pure plant extract oils is still a staple of the Clarins brand.

Driven by a continuous innovation approach, the Clarins Group, within its research units based in France on the Pontoise site, validates some sixty new raw materials each year and studies around 300 new plants, provided by the company’s globetrotters. For Clarins researchers, innovation is attained through biomimicry. This approach, which consists of observing nature and being inspired by human designs, stimulates the creation of innovative products.

The botanist Jean-Pierre Nicolas and his association Jardins du Monde continue the tradition of natural remedies. From Madagascar to Burkina Faso through Guatemala, he travels the world on the hunt for rare plants. He learns the best way to use them from people groups. Then he returns to France, where he introduces the Clarins researchers to new species. The partnership with Jardins du monde is one of those fostered by Clarins as part of its initiative to preserve and promote the botanical diversity of our planet.



Tonic Body Treatment Oil, Eau Dynamisante, Extra-Firming, Double Serum, Body Shaping Cream, Hand and Nail Treatment Cream, Joli Rouge, Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, etc. In the course of more than 60 years, Clarins has put its name to a long list of legendary skin care and make-up products, all continuously perfected thanks to an instinctive understanding of women’s needs and enduring innovation. Clarins also has an innovative approach to efficient beauty, which contributes to well-being, balance and happiness. That which seamlessly combines products and targeted application methods.

The Clarins brand was born in 1954 with the desire to advance beauty by making it more real and natural. Jacques Courtin-Clarins opened his first beauty spa on rue Tronchet in Paris. In 1990, Dr. Olivier Courtin-Clarins joins Clarins developed skin care products and spas worldwide.The Clarins brand becomes No. 1 in high-end face skin care treatments in Europe and still is today. In 1991 the first Clarins makeup collection reveals the natural beauty of every woman. Its philosophy: "Clarins. It’s all about you." Attentive to the needs of women and their environment, Clarins developed its first anti-pollution product range. In 1992, when Clarins acquired a stake in Thierry Mugler Couture, Thierry Mugler Parfums was founded. The Clarins Group was born. Mugler launched Angel, its first fragrance for women. Being open to what women have to say, the brand created "Le Cercle" to remain close to them, and “La Source”, so they can refill their bottle when it’s empty.

Clarins has continued to this day to impress us with their commitment not only to their customers, but to our earth. Kudos!
