They were the very first to create dry shampoo, with Klorane launching in 1971, intended for new mothers to use in hospital. Genius. Now, one bottle of Klorane Dry Shampoo, `1,370 on, sells every 10 seconds around the world and really, with its super-fine formula that transforms hair in seconds, it’s no wonder. You know micellar water, right? Of course you do— it’s become the must-have product for just about everyone we know. But, did you know that micellar was born in France? It all came about because the tap water in Paris was really harsh on women’s skin, so when they would cleanse, it was stripping their faces and leaving it dry. Big. Problem. In comes French brand Bioderma with a solution— a water that women could swipe over their faces that would cleanse the skin, without having to be rinsed off. It was also completely pH-balanced, so it could be used even on the most sensitive skin. The water was called Bioderma Sensibio H20—the world’s first micellar water, and the beginning of a huge new skincare category that would take the world by storm. That was in ’95, and nowadays, a bottle of that very same Sensibio H20 sells every three seconds worldwide. Yep, you read that right. These days, you can find different versions of their famous micellar, including one for acne- prone skin and dry skin too. Bioderma Sensibio H20, `990/250ml HOW TO GET THAT GLOW
