Clarins was born over 50 years ago in Paris, a city brimming with beautiful women. Today, the now legendary French brand is a leader in European luxury beauty, with a focus on 'sun'–believably innovative sun protection and self–tanning products to make you look fresh from the Riviera. Their beauty–boosting line of personalized formulas combines high–tech science savvy with pure plant power all concocted to keep your skin looking 'magnifique' at any age.

This notably natural super-charged day screen provides triple protection against an array of environmental assaults, both inside and out. The behind-the-'screens' science is 100% micronized, micro-dispersed mineral filters that guarantee über-UVA/UVB protection, Expertise 3P Complex that helps protect skin from pollution and cantaloupe melon extract that fends off free radicals. Powerful plant polymers create an oil-free, invisible, feather-light veil that allows even the most delicate dermis to breathe freely. Plus, the fast-absorbing, velvety-matte finish is a marvelous match over moisturizer and under makeup.
At Clarins, research and development is a top priority–and it shows in the brand's marriage of breakthrough science and botanical ingredients. They've devoted endless hours foraging for the finest flora from the Amazon to the Alps to formulate each of their outstanding elixirs. And they've applied cutting–edge technology to each discovery, ensuring exceptional effectiveness and stunning results.
Clarins Laboratories are recognized by the French Health Authorities as the FIRST cosmetic company to obtain the coveted "Best Practices Laboratory" certification (BPL). That's because the Clarins Laboratories environment is similar to those found in the pharmaceutical sector. These "white rooms" are specifically designed to eliminate the risk of contamination by air or micro–organism, thus offering the highest quality product using fewer preservatives.
Clarins Laboratories are also certified by Ecocert, which allows them to manufacture organic products. Though Clarins is not a traditional "organic" brand, their products are regularly praised for the high quality due to the strict standards they uphold to produce them.
Clarins believes that in order to produce the best products, you need to use the best ingredients. Therefore, money is no object in terms of cost of production. Their laboratories are given carte blanche to produce top quality products–and you get to reap the gorgeous rewards
