Unique Beauty Care Expertise
For more than 40 years, GUINOT's mission has been to make women more beautiful using exclusive and innovative beauty care methods.
For Guinot, it is the beauty therapist, the beauty professional, who combines his or her expertise with Guinot beauty care methods in order to obtain results which are immediately visible.
The son of a plastic surgeon, Jean Daniel Mondin, GUINOT's Chairman and CEO, chose to study pharmacy and obtained a doctorate.
Endowed with the expertise thus gained, Jean Daniel Mondin redefined the concept of "cosmetics" through his own perspective and his medical roots.
He is one of the few people in the world heading a cosmetics company who has also achieved a high calibre scientific degree. His education prompted him to establish a technologically advanced laboratory implementing the accuracy of pharmaceutical standards.
In his VIP treatment room, at the beauty salon in the Hotel George V in Paris, he offered exclusive Guinot treatments, in particular the Hydradermie treatment, to a clientele of foreign VIPs visiting Paris. It was this prestigious location which was the setting for the beginning of the brand's influence. A reputation which was initially built by word of mouth!
Guinot decided to exclusively entrust beauty salons with its treatments. Only these businesses have qualified beauty therapists that can perform professional beauty treatments.
Women thus found, in the form of the beauty salon, a place of business where the beauty therapist, as a "beauty doctor", prescribes the most suitable products for the skin.
Today Guinot has become "the benchmark" for beauty salons.
Guinot has a presence worldwide: 11,000 salons dotted around 70 countries throughout the world, including 1,800 beauty salons in France which employ exclusive Guinot treatment protocols and offer the products recommended and prescribed by beauty therapists.
Guinot carries out the manufacturing of its products with pharmaceutical accuracy and diligence.
Guinot's laboratories are one of the few cosmetics-manufacturing establishments in the world to have been certified to the highest quality standard by the international certification group Bureau Veritas, ISO 22 716.
This certification guarantees the high quality of manufacturing standards: cleanrooms, pure water which is continually tested, double-checking of weights, traceability of each product.
In order to measure the effectiveness of its beauty care methods and its products, GUINOT has re-established a Pilot Salon within its Research and Development Centre.
It enables new active ingredients arising out of recent scientific research to be evaluated, in order to improve formulas and increase their effectiveness.
The beauty therapist at the Research Centre can also develop new treatments, improve beauty care protocols and measure their effectiveness.
