THE BEAUTIFUL HISTORY OF BB CREAM

Model wearing Garnier BB cream

Where did BB cream come from ?

This dual-action cream was originally prescribed by German dermatologists after certain procedures. BB stood for Blemish balm, a confidential formula which both repaired and covered skin.

SUCCESS IN ASIA

The BB cream secret then travelled to Asia, where most of the advanced beauty trends are born.
In Korea, the cream was a hit!
The formula was then transformed and adapted for everyday use, and started to be called a Beauty Balm.
In a country where women apply on average 7 products to their face per day, the concept of an all-in-one was very popular!

AND FINALLY...
A BB FOR EVERY WOMAN!

We created a BB cream for all women, world-wide, with different shades and formulas.
There's now a BB to suit every type of skin!
