Founded in 1974, Decléor was born through the energy and passion of Solange Dessimoulie, who had a desire to bring her knowledge of skincare to the masses. She later teamed forces with an expert in aromatherapy, Caroline Colliard to further develop her line of skincare and create a brand to rival even the most scientifically advanced.
Today, the brand stands as a beacon of luxury and innovative beauty products, blended with the finest essential oils to give you luminously healthy skin. For anyone who has been lucky enough to meet with Solange, the first thing they will tell you is how incredibly beautiful her skin looks. Her answer? Decléor of course…
How Did Decléor Begin?
When Solange was 25 years old, she suffered with a skin condition that was severe enough to admit her into hospital for treatment. While in hospital, she discovered that the main ingredient in the treatments doctors were using was something called Proline. As an amino acid, Proline helps to support the formation of collagen and elastin, which in turn helps to repair skin cells and leave your skin feeling protected and soothed.
It was this ingredient that Solange wanted to use to form the basis of her brand as she knew first hand its magical skincare benefits. In-keeping with the idea of beauty magic, Solange chose the name Cléor for her beauty brand, which literally translates as “the golden key.” It was taken from the French phrase “la clé en or qui ouvre le temple de la beauté”, which means “the golden key that opens the temple of beauty”. Solange wanted to open the area of skincare previously untapped to the masses, and deliver innovative and complexion-enhancing products.
