Did you know?
A masseur called Jacques Courtin started Clarins, a French luxury skincare brand, in 1954. Courtin made his own treatment oils that he claimed firmed the skin, and sold them from his salon in Paris. He built up quite a fanbase, including endorsements from some big French celebrities of the time.
He pinched the name Clarins from a character he played in a school production, and saw it as a good luck charm. In fact, it seems he loved the name so much that he incorporated it into his own in 1978, becoming Jacques Courtin-Clarins.
In 1980, Clarins was the top-selling luxury skincare brand in France; in 1981 it had expanded to the US; by 1990 it was the top selling brand in Europe; and today it is distributed to 150 countries around the world. Courtin-Clarins died in 2007 but his sons, Christian and Olivier, are now involved in carrying on the family company.
