Made in France Beauty
It all began in Paris on March 15, 1954, when Jacques Courtin-Clarins opened his first Clarins Institute with the pioneering belief that well-being and happiness were inextricably linked to beauty—a daring holistic vision that he was the first to express and apply. At the same time, celebrities were beginning to unveil their bodies on the covers of magazines. The era of physical and mental freedom was dawning—a revolution in which Jacques Courtin-Clarins played an important role by telling women, "Yes, you are beautiful!”.
In France, where skin care has always been paramount, his success was immediate. Word soon spread and Clarins products became available worldwide. Today, Clarins continues to design and produce its products in France and remains faithful to its original philosophy—listening to women to truly understand their needs, and developing safe, natural and highly effective skin care products.
