Under the guardianship of Dr. Olivier Courtin-Clarins, the Fondation Arthritis took on new momentum—giving hope to and improving the quality of patients’ lives, while contributing to innovative new avenues of research.
Supporting the cause of children.
When you protect nature, you protect the future. And the future lies in our children.”
Taking direct action to help children empowers them to change their own lives and the futures of their communities. That is the purpose of the Clarins Dynamic Woman Award. Created in 1997 to mark the 10th anniversary of Eau Dynamisante, the award supports women who devote themselves to helping the lives of children in need.
More than just an award, it's a strong bond established between Clarins and the award winners, between the award winners themselves and Clarins employees—proud of supporting these generous and long-term initiatives. The award has been presented in 14 countries. To date, more than 75 women worldwide have received this honor.

With so many children around the world suffering from hunger, and without access to education, Clarins has become strongly committed to the FEED Project.
FEED is a social cause company, founded by Lauren Bush-Lauren in 2007. It strives to feed children from the poorest countries, and to help them attend school.
Initiated in 2011, the FEED Clarins partnership had provided more than 10 million meals by the end of 2015—with more to come.
Saving plants to save people.

In supporting the humanitarian association Jardins du Monde, Clarins helps disadvantaged communities create their own pharmacopeias based on indigenous plant life.
Alongside Jean-Pierre Nicolas, an ethnobotanist and founder of the Jardins du Monde, Clarins contributes to the creation of educational gardens in Madagascar and Burkina Faso, with a view to helping the most isolated and poorest communities look after themselves and take control of their development.
By growing local plants that treat the most prevalent illnesses, communities can utilize ancestral knowledge, and develop an effective and suitable health care system independently.
This role of "knowledge broker" continues with the publishing of books that collect and report medicinal findings of plants obtained in this manner.
Educational gardens: open-air pharmacies, sustainable and free for those without access to traditional medicine.
