The first Garnier product was made by Alfred Garnier in 1904, a hair tonic. The full company name, Laboratories Garnier, originated in the 1920s as a producer of haircare products made with organic ingredients. Garnier continues that mission today, as all of its products are made with natural ingredients. The L`Oreal Group has owned Garnier since 1965.
Garnier currently has three product lines: Fructis, Nutrisse and Nutritionist. Fructis, started in 1996, is the Garner line of haircare and styling products. Nutrisse, Garnier`s hair color line released in 2002, was originally called Natea when it debuted in 1998. Natea wasn`t as successful in the United States as in Europe, hence the name change. Garnier started selling Nutritionist, its skincare product line, in 2005.
Besides introducing Alfred Garnier`s hair tonic in 1904, when people still used soap on their hair, Garnier has been the first to produce sun-care items (in 1936) and the first to make a permanent home hair color (in 1960). Today Garnier is the number-one brand in Europe using natural ingredients.
Garnier exemplifies L`Oreal`s emphasis on scientific study. Research for Garnier goes through four stages at one of L`Oreal`s sixteen research centers. Then Garnier conducts clinical studies and consumer studies before releasing the product, as well as surveys afterward.
