The grounds of our story
IT IS ABOVE ALL A HUMAN AND FAMILY HISTORY
“Laboratoires Curio® is above all a human and family history and central of this history is Christian Dampeirou.
Christian is a young pharmacy assistant who has become famous. He worked in a pharmacy he didn’t own, and very early he decided to test, develop, research and offer care to his customers. Customers were loyal because even if his preparations were of no brand, even if no logo nor over-packaging were included, they were effective.
Christian was marked for life by this experience. He knows that the best formulations are above all the most straightforward ones. They must consist of top quality, adequately balanced and synergetic ingredients. As Christian also loves travelling and is fascinated by the beauty of our planet, he knows better than anyone where to find the ancestral ingredients and, above all, to check they are extraordinarily cultivated, to ensure their purity and be sure of the way they are extracted. He knows how to integrate them into formulations, without ever damaging them, so that they reach their site of action in our epidermis.
Later on, Christian created formulas for more than 30 years for the major actors in cosmetics around the world. The preparer became almost indispensable, but he did not fully understand the specifications of the formulas he had to invent… and he felt that the needs of the consumers he loved to take care of were sometimes not taken into account. He then decided to create the Curio® Laboratories, with his family, to focus on common sense values and create a benevolent cosmetic.”
The Curio® products are the result of more than 30 years of formula creations for the world’s leading cosmetic laboratories.
In order to focus on wisdom and create well-meant beauty products, Curio® Laboratories prioritize an ethics based on respect for people and nature.
The best formulations are above all the most straightforward ones. They must consist of top quality, adequately balanced and synergetic ingredients.
Our experts love travelling and are fascinated by the beauty of our planet, that’s why we know better than anyone where to find the ancestral ingredients and, above all, to check they are extraordinarily cultivated, to ensure their purity and be sure of the way they are extracted, in order to incorporate them into our formulas.
