Far from imposing restrictions, sustainable development is an opportunity for, and source of, creativity.”

Christian Courtin-Clarins

A pioneer in the field of beauty, Clarins recognizes visionaries and supports them. Awarded three times since 2004, the ClarinsMen Environment Award encourages innovation, such as the initiative of Jean-Pierre Nicolas (2004 award-winner) and his association Jardins du Monde, which aims to "save plants to save lives"; that of Bertrand Piccard (2010 award-winner) with Solar Impulse, his plane powered solely by solar energy; and that of Roland Jourdain (2013 award-winner) who, with his Explore Foundation, supports bold pioneers and searches for the plant-based materials of the future.

Open formulas to stay at the forefront of innovation

Clarins formulas - a major asset of Group Research - stay "open" to benefit from the most recent discoveries in cosmetology. Clarins is continuously perfecting its products. It's a practical expression of the founder's motto:

“Do more, do better and enjoy doing so.”

Even when a product seems perfect, Clarins still strives to improve it.

The most emblematic example of this approach is the Double Serum, the first double-phase (hydric and lipidic) serum designed in 1985 to boost the five vital functions (moisture, nutrition, oxygenation, protection and regeneration) essential to the skin's youthfulness.

Its formula has been revisited for the fifth time and is popular with millions of consumers worldwide. Dozens of major international awards have crowned this success.

Clarins, bold creativity.

Clarins Laboratories constantly keep an eye on what’s happening in the scientific and technological world. Products they have developed are considered to be major skincare innovations, from sun protection to well-being. They include the 100% Pure Plant Extract Oils, Double Serum, Eau Dynamisante, and more.

Listen, observe, and understand. Clarins has opened up new avenues for cosmetics, which have all remained relevant. For example, the Anti-Pollution Complex was launched in 1992 to protect the skin from the potentially damaging effects of the environment. Today, it is still found in Clarins' daytime moisturizers, and is constantly improved and perfected in step with advances in research.

Join Clarins by stepping into a new era where a company's value is measured by its socially responsible initiatives, its influence in guiding society towards a desirable future, and its talent for cooperation and knowledge-sharing.

Clarins believes in the virtues of cooperation. The company shares this conviction with its cosmetic industry peers within the NSRC (Natural Resources Stewardship Circle), of which Christian Courtin-Clarins is the founding member and co-chairman, and which explores within this context the wide range of possibilities to invent a new model of balanced interests in the raw materials supply chain.  

The determination to share its values and get things done is also reflected in Clarins' presence at major events focusing on sustainable development, to which the company is invited in order to talk about its responsible practices: Global Earth, The Planetworkshops, etc.
