The perfect union of science and plant heritage creating effective, innovative products that respect both nature and people
50 years ago
Our story began over half a century ago in the Southwest of France when a young pharmacist, Pierre Fabre, driven by a passion for plants and his true belief in their benefit for health and beauty, created the Klorane brand in his pharmacy. The concept of Pure Botanical Care was born.
Today, Klorane has become the #1 hair care brand in European pharmacies* and is dedicated to protecting both plant heritage and the environment. With every Klorane purchase, a portion of its sales goes to support activities of the Klorane Botanical Foundation and helps fund school gardens in the USA through the Budding Botanist Grant.
a commitment to environmental responsibility
Klorane believes in a more responsible world and acts everyday, through simple and concrete actions, to create more respectful products for the benefit of all. In 2010, Klorane was awarded the Ecocert Environment ISO 26000 for making strides in quality and sustainable development.
Our products are made using pure proven formulas with botanical ingredients. Only the purest plant extracts, sustainably grown by Klorane’s own farming partners for 100% traceability, are selected to target specific needs.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) can help the effectiveness of personal care products but is known to cause skin and scalp irritation. All of Klorane’s products are proudly SLS free.
We are committed to exploring and experimenting with plant function in a way that is safe and non-intrusive to the environment.
Our products offer a wide array of biodegradable products and eco-designed packaging created with a sustainable process and reliable results.

We actively work to protect nature through the Klorane Botanical Foundation, our corporate foundation. Since 1994, the Klorane Botanical Foundation has been taking its commitment into the field with concrete efforts in three key concentrations: Protect, Explore and Educate.
Klorane established itself as a pioneer that has made its mark on cosmetics through exclusive expertise: knowing how to choose a long-established plant and borrow from traditional routines to create modern products.
Recognized as a non-profit foundation since 1999, Pierre Fabre Laboratories has set up a unique shareholder structure to ensure its continuity and independence, while perpetuating the humanitarian values of its founder. The foundation is providing support in health care and disease prevention in 4 key areas:
