MAISON FLAMEL is a Parisian Alchemical Beauty House, inspired by the 15th century Parisian alchemist Nicolas Flamel.
Those who have read Harry Potter know that the goal of alchemy is to find the Philosopher's Stone, in order to transform lead into gold and make the elixir of youth . Or perhaps more precisely: transform matter into light and enjoy a long and happy life.
This quest finds a particular echo in MAISON FLAMEL face, body and hair care. The alchemical metaphor then responds to two universal needs: radiance, (the glow for the skin and shine for the hair) and youth >.
To hope to achieve this ideal,
MAISON FLAMEL implements its vision of alchemical care.
Our institute treatment rituals combine the ultra-efficiency of biotechnological active ingredients and state-of-the-art devices (with scientifically proven results) with the sensoriality of gestures, textures and scents.
Our products are inspired by breviary formulas, mineral and vegetable ingredients from the alchemical tradition. Nevertheless, these ingredients are extracted in the most innovative way. Because only the most advanced science can make plants and minerals speak, so that they reveal their most secret treasures.
Then, these active ingredients are formulated in pleasant textures and with delicate and addictive scents, so that the skincare routine is also a daily pleasure. Sensory magic is then put to use for long-term effectiveness.
The results, immediate and lasting, are spectacular, so our customers often ask us if we are magicians. No, just alchemists.
Alchemical care is alsothe cosmopolitan science par excellence. Born from crossroads and counters, carried
by caravans and itinerant merchants who followed the silk and spice route, it knows no borders.
Our creator Samer Zakharia, a Phoenician turned Parisian, embodies this vision. In him, influences merge, East meets West. This is why the MAISON FLAMEL alchemical treatment draws on a diversity of practices and ingredients.
Alchemical care is finally respecting, preserving nature and making good use of it, without idealizing it. For us, nature remains a precious tool and not an end in itself. We therefore do not adhere to slogans or labels.
This is why our skincare draws the best from nature, which it sublimates and completes with science, trying as best we can to minimize loss and waste. Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.
