GuinotGuinot, or Guinot Paris Skin Care, as it is known globally, was developed by Chemist, Rene Guinot, in Montreuil, France in 1963. Prior to that, Guinot had researched skin cleansing by means of purification, which prepared the skin for penetration of specialized treatments. The skin care line was established to provide his beauty therapist wife with a supply of quality skin care products. Initial sales were sluggish, and in addition to Rene’s wife and a few employees, there were continued struggles with limited sales and marketing activities, but by 1965 Guinot approached skin care development with a strict code of quality of ingredients and advanced technology in mind. He formulated his Hydradermie Treatment which rocked the world of spa skin care. The treatment was an ionization process which involved a mild galvanic current that provided fast absorption and penetration of the active ingredients utilized in the treatment. Within an hour and a half the skin was immediately revitalized. Once this revolutionary treatment progressed, other spa type products were developed that could be utilized by clients in their homes.
In the early 1970’s, a pharmaceutical doctor, Jean-Daniel Mondin, assumed management of Guinot. He wanted to give the skin care company a fresh look. He decided that treatment options should consist of advice to the client, and that the products utilized with the client would be dispensed in the same way as prescriptions were through a pharmacist. He felt that only beauty therapists had the skill to examine a client’s skin and determine the client’s skin care needs.
Today Guinot Paris Skin Care is an international leader in spa and salon products. Guinot’s range of products is categorized under face, body and sun, and Guinot provides numerous cosmetics under those categories for all skin types and conditions. Guinot believes that every skin is different and is subject to varying factors such as the environment and stress. The principle focus has been on the expertise of skin care specialists and their advice and guidance to clients. Their treatments and products are available in over 11,000 beauty salons and spas in 70 countries. Guinot continually strives as well to maintain retail product availability outside of the spa and salon environment. There are even a number of sales outlets for Guinot product lines through the internet. Guinot Paris has remained loyal to Rene’s original thought of quality product ingredients and technological advancement coupled with the luxury of spa and salon treatments.
The secret of the Guinot skin care line is its glowing skin concept. Guinot’s utilization of the “Cellular Life Complex” of 56 advanced ingredients (vitamins, amino acids and biological ingredients) has been one of the keys to the company’s success. This complex promotes skin cell renewal which goes along with the metabolism, oxygenation, elasticity and firmness of skin. Additionally, products and new lines are constantly researched and reevaluated in the Guinot laboratory outside of Paris. New technology advancement has always been part of Guinot’s treatments for specific areas of the body whether it is for the face, eyes, lips, neck, hands, or body.
By the late 1990’s and into the 21st Century, Guinot skin care had established itself as a top spa and beauty salon brand, and their scientific division’s ultimate mission was to create, develop and test beauty salon treatments for the cosmetics of the future. They did so with innovations such as Epil Confort, Aromatic Face, Absolue Minceur body, Hydradermie Lift, Technispa and Tres Homme (men’s line).
Guinot’s anti aging line also offers an array of products such as:
Time Release Youth Boost w/ Skin Matrix Complex a highly successful and world renowned anti aging, anti wrinkle elixir that helps strengthen elastin as well as energize the face for up to 14 days. The results are a youthful and radiant appearance.
Age Logic Cellulaire is considered the ultimate anti aging skincare product as it actually aids in the reversal of the cellular aging process.
Time Logic Age Serum is a luxurious and ultimate anti aging night treatment. It soothes, evens out, and increases collagen and elastin production while it tones facial contours through cellular renewal.
Guinot’s namesake is “total beauty care,” and its products delight the user with elegance in the textures, scents and assortments of its cosmetics, but more importantly, the actual ingredient combinations are what create the total, exceptional results.
