Inventor of dermo-cosmetics almost 60 years ago, we create and develop dermo-cosmetic care products with high added value, acting to simultaneously promote the health and beauty of the skin and hair.

The Pierre Fabre Group is simultaneously a botanist, a grower and a manufacturer for its brands (A-Derma, Ducray, Eau Thermale Avène, Elancyl, Galénic, Klorane, René Furterer).

This original position within the cosmetics industry means that we can control the product life cycle, from the plant to the skin and the hair, whether healthy or damaged.

With 6 research centers in France and more than 300 dermo-cosmetics research experts, the Group identifies new targets, develops new natural extracts and designs new textures.
