Why Clarins?

Why Clarins?

Beauty - made in France

It all began in Paris in 1954, when Jacques Courtin-Clarins opened his first Clarins Institute with the pioneering belief that wellbeing and happiness were inextricably linked to beauty. This idea was totally new. At the same time, celebrities were beginning to unveil their bodies on the covers of magazines; the era of physical and mental freedom was dawning. A revolution in which Jacques Courtin-Clarins played an important role by telling women, "Yes, you are beautiful!"

In France, where caring for your skin has always been paramount, his success was immediate. Word soon spread and his products became available throughout the world. Today, Clarins continues to design and produce its products in France and remains faithful to its original philosophy: listening to women to truly understand their needs, and developing safe, natural and highly effective skin care products.

Clarins Commitment: To make life more beautiful

Clarins is committed to respecting nature and protecting biodiversity. They support local communities and purchase their raw materials in accordance with fair trade principles. They respect current and future generations.

Customised Consultation

Whatever your skin type or skincare concerns, with Clarins you'll be able to find the right treatment for you. Let our trained therapists guide you through their product range and create your own personalised skin care programme.

Every product has a secret ingredient: Love

Always ready to listen, do more and do better. This is the Clarins story. In his beauty institute, Jacques Courtin-Clarins was deeply committed to encouraging women to share their views about his products. Their products and application techniques are the result of over 50 years' dialogue with their clients. Customer service, beauty consultants, counter managers, marketeers... Behind every Clarins product is a team of dedicated men and women whose mission is to make your life even more beautiful. It is more than a job, it is a passion.

Jessica Nails

Gorgeous colour starts with the right foundation. Nails have their own biology, just like hair and skin. For the best care and the most beautiful outcome, nails require a studied approach that is similar to how a specialist cares for the skin.

Nail types can be best described as Dry, Brittle, Damaged, or Normal, and they may be peeling or breaking. For every nail type and every problem, there is a solution for the best care and most beautiful outcome. The JESSICA Nail Cultivist understands the structure of each client’s nails as the key to restoring health and wellness to natural nails.

Jessica Cosmetics is a product line based on this innovative philosophy of treating the nail from the foundation. Today, the line boasts a wide assortment of treatment products, over 230 Custom Colours, Effects, the GELeration Soak-Off Gel System, Zen Spa Pedicure, and Fusion 2.5.2 Pedicure. Jessica's products are found in top salons in 60 countries worldwide, and Jessica remains at the forefront of nail care as its most trusted source.
