Daily routine and the environment we live in constantly change and can directly affect long-term results. Personal and unique, Elemis looks to build and develop its customer through awareness and understanding.


Founded in France over forty years ago by Rene Guinot, a well-known chemist, the collection of skincare products, now known throughout the world as Guinot Paris, began with a focused approach to treating the skin with the now well-known Hydradermie treatment.

A total line, Guinot Paris provides a wide range of beauty care, covering three specific categories- face, body and sun. But in each category, the company’s philosophy of professional expertise as a guide to product usage is an important part of its skincare message. Basic to this is the Guinot creed with points out that every skin is different as well as being exposed to different environmental and stressful conditions at different times. It is the synergy of the professional services and the retail products that together brings about skin beauty on which Guinot Paris prides itself.

Keeping its roots in the salons and spas where its professional treatments begin, Guinot Paris has increasingly expanded its retail operation and today is recognized as the leading skincare collection in prestige salons and spas everywhere.
