CLARINS was founded in 1954 thanks to the passion of one man, Jacques Courtin-Clarins. He had always been interested in beauty but not just any beauty… the one that goes beyond the superficial. And this founding commitment has remained strong for 60 years. From the beginning he was attracted to beauty that is not just skin deep. His studies showed that women are worried about their beauty just as much as their health, so he then was focused on developing skincare that enhances women's beauty and minimizes the flaws. His commitment has been well carried on through Clarins beauty and skincare products.
