Responsible sourcing | Clarins Singapore Our Commitments

Our Commitment to Responsible Sourcing

When we are inspired by nature every day, we cannot ignore its fragility.

At a time when many of our planet’s ecosystems are under threat, Clarins is committed to sustainable agriculture that protects both people and the planet.

The sourcing of our ingredients is at the heart of this responsible approach.

Domaine Clarins

Exceptional raw materials sourced from regenerative agriculture

Perched at an altitude of 1,400 meters in the French Alps, Domaine Clarins is our open-air laboratory and farm.
Here we’re directly inspired by regenerative agriculture: we use seasonal plants, which are grown in harmony with nature, and in pure and unpolluted soil, enriched only with natural substances according to organic farming methods.

Plants are cultivated according to the seasons and with the greatest respect for nature

Seasonal cultivation techniques used to grow highest quality plant ingredients | Clarins Singapore

At Domaine Clarins, we use traditional techniques – including horse-drawn plows – and minimal technology, to preserve the health of the soil, and create ideal conditions for growing the highest quality plant ingredients for our products.

We use this research facility to study new plant actives, and to source many of the ingredients that are already being used in our treatments. This controlled farm-to-jar approach enables us to provide the highest standards of quality, safety, and traceability.

Domaine Clarins is not open to the public, but the beauty of this unspoiled land is visible from a distance. Explore this majestic site, where the future of beauty is being written, with our virtual tour.

Clarins' 3-pronged approach: Plants, Beauty from Nature | Clarins Singapore
Our 3-pronged approach


Beauty from nature

Clarins research is inspired by nature. Today, 80% of the active ingredients used in our formulas come from a private herbarium of over 200 plants - our greatest asset.

We are always trying to improve the quality and traceability of our supply chains, and continue to give priority to those that respect the planet, plants and people.

Clarins Research has established criteria that any new species joining our catalogue must meet, with a particular attention to sustainable agricultural practices.

Naturally-derived ingredients used at Clarins | Clarins Singapore
Our 3-pronged approach

Natural derivatives

Traceability and green chemistry

Naturally-derived ingredients are substances of natural origin - vegetable or mineral - which have undergone modifications to provide beneficial properties for the skin. This includes certain active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, delivery systems and agro-sourced solvents.

For these ingredients we choose materials that are easily biodegradable and whose manufacturing processes respect the principles of green chemistry. We also ensure they can be traced back to the country of origin. For each of these supply chains, we work in partnership with our suppliers to create programs that protect biodiversity and local communities.

Nature first at Clarins: prioritizing natural alternatives to synthetic ingredients | Clarins Singapore
Our 3-pronged approach

Synthetic ingredients


At Clarins, more than 81% of the active ingredients used are of natural origin.

The remaining 19% is made up of synthetic ingredient, which are only used when they are essential to the safety, effectiveness or sensoriality of our formulas. We are always looking for natural alternatives.
