Second largest brand of the L’Oréal Group, Garnier is an international haircare and skincare brand with sub-brands in four categories and seven areas of expertise – among which Ultra DOUX, Fructis, SkinActive, Ambre Solaire, Nutrisse or Olia. With products formulated to meet the needs of every man and woman, everywhere in the world, we offer innovative, affordable care solutions at the best prices.
Founded in France in 1904 by Alfred Amour Garnier, the brand was born with the launch of the first patented plant-based hair lotion, La Lotion Garnier. Over the decades, Garnier expanded into skincare and cemented its reputation as the healthy beauty expert, by providing nature-based solutions to combat pollution, acne, UV and fatigue.
Garnier is renowned for its know-how in harnessing the bounty of nature– fruits, seeds, buds and flowers with highly beneficial skincare and haircare properties. Their active ingredients are extracted using the brand’s cutting-edge expertise and techniques to take full advantage of nature’s energy, effectiveness and generosity.
Garnier brings beauty to vast numbers of consumers while also reducing our ecological impact. The brand is committed to sustainable sourcing, to constantly reducing the environmental impact of our packaging and continuously seeking to improve the ecological profile and biodegradability indices of our formulas.
In 2017, Garnier committed to supporting UNICEF’s overall humanitarian support with a donation of €1,200,000. This contribution was allocated to a funding pool enabling UNICEF to respond to emergencies on a needs basis and bring assistance to millions of children and their families.
In fact, one child out of four lives in a country affected by conflicts, natural disasters or epidemics. UNICEF, the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund focuses on these children and their families – on the essential interventions required for protection, to save lives and to ensure the rights of all children, everywhere. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families and the impact of its programmes is universally recognized.
“At Garnier, we believe that being committed to the future starts with today. Generations of millions of children around the world are experiencing humanitarian situations for which we can and must provide assistance. It is by helping people to rebuild their lives that we will give the youngest of them hope and the strength to build a better world for themselves and their communities. That’s why we have chosen to make a long-term commitment to UNICEF.” Delphine Viguier, Garnier Global Brand President
