Lancôme has epitomized beauty and glamour with a quintessential French touch since its inception. Founded in 1935 by Armand Petitjean, Lancôme’s name was born when the cosmetic chemist encountered the historic ruins of the Château de Lancosme while vacationing in the French countryside. The mystic yellow flowers that covered the estate grounds inspired the rose emblem of the brand.
Some of the silver screen’s most iconic stars have been part of the Lancôme family. Today, Academy Award winning actresses Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet and Penélope Cruz are ambassadresses for Lancôme, as are supermodels Daria Werbowy, and Arlenis Sosa. Top makeup artist Sandy Linter is Lancôme’s Beauty at Every Age Expert. Lancôme is a division of the global cosmetics company, L’Oréal.
