Success story: From dermatologists to make-up artists

In 1950, the now famous dermatologist Dr Tricot from Saint Louis Hospital in Paris, a specialist in skin pathologies, endeavoured to develop a new skin care product to help his patients suffering from severe cases of dry and uncomfortable skin. His research led him to create the Lait-Crème Concentré Embryolisse that became very quickly endorsed by the medical community for its great effectiveness. Today his formula is the only one still referenced in the French pharmacopeia bible, the VIDAL.

Soon after its launch, celebrities and professional makeup artists at the time who were always needing to nurture overworked skin after continuous makeup-application, adopted Lait-Crème Concentré as their daily indispensable skincare product. 

From dermatologists to celebrities, from celebrities to make-up artists, Embryolisse’s Lait-Crème Concentré establishes itself as THE star skin care product of make-up artists worldwide. As one of Beauty’s best kept secret, it has been passed down by word of mouth, from mother to daughter, generation after generation.

Embryolisse: Where beauty begins!

Nazoura and Alain Cassam-Chenaï took over the management of the company in 1998, developing an entire range of products delivering care for the face and the body with the same philosophy of simplicity in order not to over-expose the most fragile skins. 

However they understood that women would always wear make-up to beautify their look and they decided to develop a derma skincare brand that would be skin-perfecting and radiance boosting, a derma skincare brand that would prepare the skin, correct and unify whilst enhancing women’s natural beauty. 

In 2000 they launched the Artist Secret® range created by skin tone experts in Japan that targeted the needs of beauty professionals to always look for perfectly smooth complexion and healthy skin. 

Today, throughout the world, 1 Lait-Crème Concentré is sold every 5 seconds!


Lait-Crème Concentré, a cult product with millions of fans throughout the world  

Lait-Crème Concentré is an ultra-simple formula with recognized ingredients (emollient oil, soy proteins, aloe vera, shea butter, beeswax) used in just the right amounts. Nothing more, nothing less. Simple is beautiful! Rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins, the formula ensures that the skin is always properly hydrated, nourished and protected against external aggressions. 

Passed on from mother to daughter, “la crème française” has become a precious family ritual that ensures healthy and radiant skin. It’s also known as ‘the little black dress’ of cosmetics in France... iconic, versatile and timeless!


Lait-Crème Concentré, a backstage star much loved by models

Lait-Crème Concentré is also a true multi-talented skincare icon. It is an excellent moisturiser but also works as a cleanser & make-up remover, can be used as a beauty mask and finally is an excellent make-up base! It is the “Swiss army knife” for celebrities who use it to fight the effects of jetlag, quickly remove make-up and rehydrate their skin in a flash. A fountain of youth for stressed skin!   

Lait-Crème Concentré is the ultimate primer, THE make-up base of excellence for a glorified complexion. It improves skin quality, make-up results and offers true radiance - all of this while leaving a smooth silky veil even on the driest of skins. No wonder it has become the “magic wand” of professional make-up artists working backstage showcasing models’ natural beauty!
