DARPHIN was founded by Pierre Darphin, a master botanist with a lifelong dedication to the pursuit of scientifically-proven botanical efficacy. In 1958, he opened the first beauty center for people seeking solutions to skin problems. Inspired by the secrets of the French royal family using aromatherapy oils to maintain the skin, he collected the most active parts of the flowers and developed a series of high-concentration flowers to bring significant repair effects to the skin. Today, DARPHIN still adheres to his philosophy of skincare and satisfies women’s desire for luxury skincare.
