IM Story

A visionary skincare founded by a visionary woman

In 1959, French cosmetologist Madame Ingrid Millet made the groundbreaking discovery that plant cellular extracts have a remarkable rejuvenating effect on the skin. She became the first to use them in cosmetics, as a mean of combating premature skin ageing. From the laboratories of INGRID MILLET came a revolutionary range of beauty creams. Her holistic approach to skin diagnosis, personalized beauty regime and home-use products was launched to an appreciative international clientele. In 1966, the first INGRID MILLET Institute was opened in the heart of Paris at 9 rue Royale, a stone throw from Place de la Concorde. Today, the newly renovated Ingrid Millet Institute still nestled in the middle of the famous “Galerie Royale”, providing tailor-made beauty solutions.

A quest for enhanced beauty

Continuing research led to the discovery in 1972 that the unique properties of caviar, a treat so precious it was once only consumed by royalty, also helps fight the ageing process. This led to the creation of a highly precious and effective ingredient, Caviar Complex, and the Perle de Caviar skincare range. Even now, Perle de Caviar still remains the greatest testament to INGRID MILLET's originality and strength - INGRID MILLET skincare products now exported to over 50 countries!

An elite heritage innovates for the future

By integrating marine biology and a deep knowledge of the skin to formulate her unique skincare products, Ingrid Millet has set new standards for the beauty industry. This tradition of pioneering research is one that INGRID MILLET proudly continues into the 21st century. Today, INGRID MILLET skincare, make-up and body care ranges provide a high-performance solution tailored to the needs of each woman, irrespective of their age or lifestyle.
