First exclusive treatment method to beautify the face created
For the first time, a gentle ionisation process made skin more receptive to targeted actives selected to meet beauty goals.
Hydradermie treatment became a huge success in the world’s best beauty salons.
It has continued to develop thanks to excellent international training in New York, London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Toronto, Madrid, Rome...
1986 Longue Vie Cellulaire cream created
Jean-Daniel Mondin embarked on a collaboration with Professor Raichvarg’s biology department at Cochin Hospital to assess how effective a nutrient complex would be on the skin of serious burn victims.

2004 Sun care that protects cell DNA
Sun care that protects cell DNA

2004 First Cream with Cellular Energy
Age Logic Cellulaire cream: the first skincare product that helps “deprogram” cell ageing “software”.
It stimulates skin cells that have become sluggish over time.
As well as selected actives to make skin more youthful, this cream contains ATP: a natural biological molecule that delivers the energy required for vital cell functions.
2005 The In-Salon Slimming Revolution
TechniSpa slimming treatment launched
Guinot created a treatment with a unique and patented process that allows beauty therapists to offer clients real slimming results.
The TechniSpa is exceptionally good at slimming thanks to these three simultaneous actions:

- Stimulation makes muscles work to burn fat.

2010 Time Logic Age Serum
The serum that works at night for beautiful skin during the day.

Applied every evening, this product has incredible effects, making skin look younger and brighter from the initial applications.
