Ligne St. BarthThe Ligne St. Barth workshop lab is on the incredibly beautiful Caribbean island of St. Barthélemy. This is the scene of the exclusive production of the range's beauty products and perfumes. Birgit and Hervé Brin founded the family company in 1983 and are still running it today.
The history of the Brin family has been inextricably linked to the Caribbean island for centuries. Hervé Brin's great-great-grandmother, Honorine Brin, was well-known for her knowledge of Indian naturopathy. The natural care products with their fantastically exotic fragrances were inspired by these old formulae.
Carita ParisExactly 60 years ago, the two sisters Rosy and Maria Carita, the pioneers of a holistic beauty service, realised their shared vision: every woman should be able to express her individual beauty in its varied facets.
They came from Toulouse and started their careers as hairstylists to lend their customers beauty from head to toe. They were the first women to open their own hairdressing salon in Paris. In 1945 the CARITA sisters opened their own beauty salon, initially at 5 rue du Faubourg St Honoré, and then laid the cornerstone of their unique haute-beauté concept in "La Maison de Beauté", an oasis of beauty that pays equal attention to face, body and hair.
