Plant gold, the most precious, most active and richest part of the plant extract: the essential oil. Designed in 1968 by Jacques Courtin-Clarins, the 100% natural range of pure plant extract oils is still a staple of the Clarins brand.


Driven by a continuous innovation approach, Clarins, within its research units based in France on the Pontoise site, validates some sixty new raw materials each year and studies around 300 new plants, provided by the company’s globetrotters. For Clarins researchers, innovation is attained through biomimicry. This approach, which consists of observing nature and being inspired by human designs, stimulates the creation of innovative products.
