Get To Know Gatineau: The Anti-Ageing Skincare Experts
With a legacy of over 90 years of science and innovation, Gatineau is known for powerful, innovative skincare solutions that help women look and feel more youthful with their healthiest skin.
Who Are Gatineau?
Pronounced ‘gat-in-o’, the company began in Paris in 1932 when visionary beauty therapist, Madame Jeanne Gatineau opened her first salon and began to develop her own skincare products. Her vision was to create Gatineau skincare solutions for women that were based on her avant-garde treatment techniques that she offered in-salon. Solutions that would help women to embrace their healthiest, most youthful-looking skin.
Madame Jeanne Gatineau worked with experienced dermatologists and biochemists and soon became renowned in the skincare world for her innovation. To share her knowledge and teach the beauty professionals of tomorrow, she opened the Jeanne Gatineau School of Beauty in 1950 where she provided training to thousands of students who had big aspirations in the world of skincare.
With a huge demand for her techniques, Gatineau skin care products were manufactured for at-home use so women could get the same great results from the comfort of their own homes.
The first beauty house to develop alcohol-free cleansers, alcohol-free toners, and an exfoliator, the brand’s formulas hotly anticipated the needs of women and catered to them, making them a popular choice.
With powerful natural ingredients fused with pioneering biotechnology, the professional range of at-home skincare gives long-lasting, effective results that don’t compromise the health of your skin.
