Clarins: Natural cosmetics with history
Clarins history dates back to 1954 when the French Jacques Courtin-Clarins decided to become initiated in the world of beauty producing, making and selling perfumes in a small store of 9 square metres in Paris. There was no reason to expect that, in spite of the great deal of effort and dedication, that would become (decades later) one of the most prestigious brand of cosmetics worldwide.
As a result of that work, the first slimming cream based on plants was invented: Aminviste. A novelty for the times.
In the 80’s, Clarins consolidated as a well-known company expert in beauty, expanding internationally, listed on the stock market and continued supporting research in the world of plants and respect for the environment. Jacques Courtin and his son Christian, brand heir were pioneers in the community awareness for the pollution effects on the skin and the use of plants for cosmetics. Its motto: “plants provide us with everything we need.”
Clarins cosmetics characterize by the use of natural products: treatments based on concentrates from fresh plants being able to eliminate the active ingredients of animal products they used (practice that was abandoned in 1991). What is more common for any other company nowadays, Clarins prevented a long time ago.
Clarins group has gone up and is due to increase again dramatically becoming the European leader in high-end beauty treatments. Since 1996, the group is present in our country where is widely traded. Other prestigious brands as Azzaro & Thierry Mugler are marketed as well.
Clarins is a brand that has always thought about women by supplying comprehensive solutions to any of their beauty needs. Treatments for all skin types and time of the year, as well as different stages of a woman age and products for pregnant women. They take into account not only women. Cosmetics for men (Clarins men line) have been more & more successful with treatments that cover their specific skin needs.
