President of the Supervisory Board

A business school graduate, oldest son of the founder, Christian Courtin-Clarins joined the family brand in 1974 to expand it internationally. As Director of Exports, he opened 128 countries to Clarins products and care methods. Very quickly, he also got involved in communications with a real guideline: represent the influence of a woman consistent with the times, revealing the natural beauty of all women. With no famous muses, Christian instead would seek to show the diversity of women that Clarins could serve.


Then Chairman and CEO of Clarins and President of Parfums Mugler, he became Chairman of the Board for the Clarins group. Christian Courtin-Clarins has always had a passion for environmental issues. Under his leadership, the group got more involved in the preservation of biodiversity and respect for human beings through supporting associations, the Prix Clarins and empowering thousands of employees around the world. His motto "Clarins makes life more beautiful." became the group's motto.


Passionate, responsive, human, this noble-hearted man has been a man of honor since 2012: the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transportation and Housing dubbed him 'Knight of the Legion of Honor' (the highest decoration in France) for his unwavering support and investment in responsible development.
