The international dynamism of the Clarins Group. Clarins, a French, family-run business created in 1954, began international activity in the early 70s when the first contracts with exclusive distributing agents were signed. The first subsidiaries were organized in the 80s, starting with the USA in January 1981. Today, the Clarins Group, which also includes the Thierry Mugler and Azzaro brands, is made up of 19 distribution subsidiaries across 150 countries with around 6,000 employees and a turnover of more than 900 M Euros. Taking time out to treat your face and body is no longer a luxury but a necessity of modern living. Clarins aim is to maintain your sense of well-being and boost your inner strength and outer beauty. By combining The Clarins Touch with the purest plant extracts and aromatic oils, Clarins has created unique treatment systems - it is a sensory experience that addresses the way you look and the way you feel. Since 1954, the Clarins Group has used its unrivalled expertise in the field of beauty to produce the safest, most effective products that deliver genuine results, and exceptional skin care.
The environment: a genuine concern
From the very beginning, Clarins goal was to create the most effective beauty products using the highest quality ingredients, while respecting the environment and preserving the planet’s natural resources. A team dedicated to environmental best practice is in place to monitor and audit procedures. Clarins concern for the environment is also evident through support of environmental initiatives such as Alp Action. Headed by Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, this organisation helps to preserve the unique but threatened flora and fauna of the region.
In addition to this, Clarins also cares passionately for skin care and believe only the very best in beauty products will do when it comes to looking after our largest bodily organ; our skin. Responsible for keeping us healthy and hydrated, skin can be underappreciated and neglected. But not with Clarins. Exceptional expertise and extensive research in to the anatomy and needs of our skin, has resulted in this classic brand becoming one of the most well known skin care brands in the world.
Good for the environment, good for skin care, good for outer beauty.
On the production sites
The waste produced by all areas of the operation is strictly managed and today we can report that 100% of the waste is recycled.
In the choice of ingredients
"Since the plant world is the best source of skin treatment ingredients, sustainable plants are at the very heart of the Clarins brand. Clarins beauty products do not contain any extracts of animal origin."
Our respect for the environment goes beyond our choice of ingredients. In 1987, Clarins was the first French company to cease product testing on animals. Loving souls are creative souls, which is why Clarins create beauty products for every need and desire. Clarins know that every person is unique and Clarins listen to each and every one of them. Clarins know that money makes no difference when love is concerned, so Clarins have given their laborotories only one directive: to offer the very best. Lastly, love also means making the world a better place. That's why Clarins protect nature, because she gives us the rarest and the most effective ingredients. It's a fact. And from nature, Clarins have derived some of the most bespoke beauty products. With Clarins, life's more beautiful.

Vowing to "do better, do more and enjoy doing so", he created new massage methods using the first 100% pure plant extract treatment oils. Sharing the same passion, his two sons joined Clarins. Today, Christian Courtin-Clarins presides over the company, continuing to ensure its future growth and development, helping introduct revolutionary new beauty products to the market to take the skin care industry by storm...
