The History of Darphin
Originating in 1958, Darphin revolutionised beauty with their exclusive skin-sculpting techniques, sensory experiences and customised skin analyses. Founded by Parisian kinesiotherapist, Pierre Darphin whose motivation for the brand came from his desire to encompass the innovative and developmental processes of the Parisian beauty industry, this forward-thinking brand brought together cosmetologists, massage therapists, manicure experts and other professionals with the goal of giving clients the most all-encompassing treatments possible.
Known for his strong opinions, high standards and unwavering insistence on the most conscientious care, Pierre Darphin continually set new standards for cosmetic services. When the first “Institut de Beauté” opened in Paris, he continued to revolutionise the beauty industry changing his focus from adopting pre-existing processes to creating innovative products. More than 50 years later, it is this fierce perfectionism, selectivity and passionate attention to detail that resulted in the successful creation of every Darphin product.
