The story behind the brand

The mission of Clé de Peau Beauté – French for ‘the key to skin’s beauty’ – is to achieve radiant, luxuriant skin through sophisticated and innovative skin cell science and technology. As part of the Shiseido family, Clé de Peau Beauté was founded in 1982 in Japan. The brand’s cutting edge research findings formed the core of its skincare philosophy: the concept of Skin Intelligence. Through Skin Intelligence, the skin can innately respond to both positive stimuli like nutrients, sleep and moisture, and negative stimuli such as stress, pollution or dryness, in order to regulate itself towards its optimal condition. The Clé de Peau Beauté product line is designed to support the skin to reach its most radiant state of texture, tone and contour.
