KLYTIA AT THE ORIGINS OF THE FIRST FRENCH COSMETIC BRAND  

 

 

 

 

At the end of the 19th century, the industrial revolution in France reached its peak. Totally dominated by men, Marie Valentine Lebrun is a true woman at the head of revolutionary progress in the cosmetics industry.

It was in 1895 at the Hôtel de Nocé located at 26 place Vendôme in Paris that she created the first French cosmetics brand on a global scale, KLYTIA, and her first Beauty Institute.

A personal drama is at the origin of these innovations. At 30, Ms. Lebrun loses her husband and sets out to find a new affair to forget about her grief. Passionate about cosmetics, she decided to offer all women in the world a cosmetic brand of a certain quality standard.

INNOVATION OF CHRONOSOINS® 1895-2020

Women who now live ten lives in one find it difficult to manage their beauty, to find real moments for themselves, to respect the rhythms and natural needs of their skin. For all these women and also because the morning is not the evening, because there are times when the skin needs awakening, others when it needs relaxation, because there are a time for everything and above all a time to make each treatment optimal, KLYTIA places the natural functioning of the body and the skin at the heart of its research.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

 

Developed according to the principle of Chronobiology (study of the rhythms of the body), in partnership with the Faculty of Pharmacy of Paris, KLYTIA innovates and offers Les Chronosoins KLYTIA, the first line of beauty treatments which at the same time respects the natural rhythm of the skin and lifestyle of women.

 

KLYTIA Chronosoins are three innovative beauty rituals to be experienced, in the morning, in the evening and during periods of treatment, on weekends.
