Social responsibility

What Clarins does for the community.

A corporate citizen open to the world, Clarins encourages innovation and continuously commits to medical, humanitarian and environmental projects.

Health and well-being for all, education and helping children, and biodiversity conservation are the top three areas targeted by Clarins' voluntary and long-term initiatives for the benefit of the community.

All of these initiatives share the common goal of being sustainable and serving future generations.

Since 2011, Clarins has been committed to the social undertaking of ending malnutrition and illiteracy among disadvantaged children.

Clarins, beauty taken seriously,
Health and well-being taken to heart.

The Clarins Group believes that beauty contributes to health and well-being. We provide emotional support to women with cancer through two associations: Etincelle and Belle & Bien. Body treatment booths and beauty training are provided by Etincelle; beauty workshops are hosted by Belle & Bien.

Clarins has supported Fondation Arthritis since 1989.

Clarins has supported Fondation Arthritis since 1989.

Clarins supports Medical Research with the Arthritis Foundation, whose operating expenses it finances in full. Created in 1989 at the initiative of Jacques Courtin-Clarins and Denis Bloch, the former ARP (Association for Polyarthritis Research) became a public interest foundation in 2006. Under the guardianship of Dr. Olivier Courtin-Clarins, Arthritis Fondation Courtin took on a new impetus to continuously improve the quality of life of patients and contribute towards innovative avenues for research. It has one constant goal: giving hope to patients.

Supporting the cause of children.

When you protect nature, you protect the future. And the future lies in our children.”

Respecting life, preparing the future. Taking care of the present while securing the well-being of future generations: that is the purpose of the Clarins Dynamic Woman Award. This award, created in 1987 to mark the 10th anniversary of Eau Dynamisante, supports women who devote themselves to helping the lives of children in need.

More than just an award, it's a strong bond established between Clarins and the award-winners, between the award-winners themselves and with employees, proud of supporting these generous and long-term initiatives. The award has spread to 14 countries. To date, more than 75 women worldwide have received this award.

Feeding children to build a future.

The FEED Clarins partnership—working together to end world hunger.

As too many children still suffer from hunger and are unable to benefit from normal schooling, Clarins has decided to make a strong commitment to FEED.

FEED is a social company founded by Lauren Bush-Lauren in 2007. It strives to feed children from the poorest countries and to help them attend school.

Initiated in 2011, the FEED Clarins partnership had provided more than 6 million meals by the end of 2014. And there's more to come...

Saving plants to save people.

Clarins supports water access and local development programs with Jardins du Monde. Transfer of knowledge with health manuals on medicinal plants.

Clarins supports water access and local development programs with Jardins du Monde. Transfer of knowledge with health manuals on medicinal plants.

In supporting Jardins du Monde, Clarins takes the protection of plants and disadvantaged communities to new heights.

Alongside Jean-Pierre Nicolas, an ethnobotanist and founder of the Jardins du Monde association, Clarins contributes to the creation of educational gardens* in Madagascar and Burkina Faso, with a view to helping the most isolated and poorest communities look after themselves and take control of their development.

By growing local plants that treat the most frequent illnesses, communities re-appropriate ancestral knowledge and develop an effective and suitable health care system independently. This role of "knowledge broker" continues with the publishing of books that collect and report knowledge of plants gained in this manner.

*Educational gardens: open-air pharmacies, sustainable and free for those without access to traditional medicine.
