Klorane, a brand committed to protecting and promoting our plant heritage, has been taking inspiration from nature for over 50 years.
Faced with the gradual depletion of the Earth's natural resources, Klorane Laboratories has decided to guide our development plans to limit the impact on the planet.
The story began in the Southwest of France when a young pharmacist Pierre Fabre, driven by a passion for plants and his belief in their benefit for health and beauty created the concept of true botanical care.
In 1966, the shampoo with chamomile for blond hair was launched. Later followed by the oatmilk and cornflower ranges.
The products are innovative: one concern, one plant, one benefit.
Klorane developed the first dry shampoo on the market in 1971 basically intended for new mothers in hospitals.
In 1994, the Klorane institute was created coupled with Pierre Fabre botanical expertise which aim is to control all stages of the manufacturing process.

Unique botanical assets
Klorane established itself as a pioneer that has made its mark on cosmetics through exclusive expertise: knowing how to choose a long-established plant and borrow from traditional routines to create modern products. The company culture builds on nature to develop innovative plant-based active ingredients and safe and effective products by adhering to a clearly-defined set of ethics and commitments, known as the Pierre Fabre Botanical Expertise.
Klorane has been working on a daily basis using simple, concrete actions to create respectful products that benefit everyone.
For more than 20 years, it has been committed to the Klorane Botanical Foundation, which fosters a passion for botany and is commited to our plant heritage protection and valorisation around the world.
For instance, the aquatic mint which has been selected for its great richness in polyphenols and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The proven antipollution properties of Aquatic Mint were discovered by expert botanists in southwest France. They developed a shampoo and conditioner with a natural and biodegradable formula to share the benefits of this plant with the rest of the world.
A botanical soul in every product
Klorane has been making historical strides in hair and face care for decades. In 2010, Klorane received the ECOCERT ENVIRONMENT ISO 26000, an award for quality and sustainable development.
The eco-designed products are manufactured in France under the High Quality Environmental Approach to reduce impact on the environment.
In 2016, it celebrated the 50th anniversary of its first product collection: chamomile. The Klorane Institute became the Klorane botanical foundation. Nowadays, with every Klorane purchase, a portion of its sales goes to support activities of the Klorane botanical foundation.
