Product safety and efficacy Since 1954, the Clarins Group has used its unrivalled expertise in the field of beauty to produce the safest, most effective products that deliver genuine results. The Clarins Group has always made safe use a number-one priority and, believing in the true efficacy of plants, has no ingredients of animal origin in its formulas. All raw materials are monitored by on-going quality controls and their safety is proven using the most reliable test methods. Each supplier is also rigorously audited. A computerised identification system bar codes every ingredient involved in the production process to ensure total traceability and safety, and each product carton is printed with the number of months a product is safe to use once opened. Feedback is invaluable and Clarins encourages consumers to express their views by filling in the questionnaire, or Client Card, included in every product. The comments we receive back are the very source of our inspiration and they enable us to develop and update formulas and products to more effectively meet consumer needs.
