In 1958, Darphin helped revolutionize esthetic care by opening one of the first beauty institutes in Paris for complete body, hair and skin care solutions, custom-tailored to specific, personal needs. Unlike many skin care brands that cater to "skin types", Darphin does not advocate pre-determined product regimes. Darphin recognizes that while "skin type" is a constant, "skin condition" evolves and changes with age, weather, nutrition, stress and any number of lifestyle variables. To restore balance and optimize beauty, truly effective skin care takes all these variables into consideration. Darphin has developed a complete spectrum of advanced, targeted formulations to help repair, restore and replenish the appearance of each skin type and condition.
