Discover philosophy's brand heritage at Boots

Learn the story behind philosophy, the brand that approaches beauty from a skin care point of view.

It's the brand with a scientific heritage that has wellbeing at its heart. Introducing beauty experts philosophy.

With its original product names, inspirational messaging and vintage-style photography, philosophy's refreshing, approachable attitude towards beauty has made it a favourite with beauty insiders worldwide. The philosophy aim? To inspire beauty on the surface and within the soul. Here's how it all started.

philosophy's scientific heritage

Launched in the spring of 1996, philosophy was founded by skin care entrepreneur Cristina Carlino, whose skin care products were distributed to the world's leading plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Her vision for philosophy ? To bridge the gap between the dermatologist's office and the high street so women everywhere could access leading skin care technologies.

It wasn't long before philosophy's cutting-edge, results-driven formulations became a hit, thanks to anti-ageing must-haves like hope in a jar and help me becoming cult buys. Today, philosophy boasts a raft of innovative, well-respected skin care, fragrance and body care products.

philosophy believe in miracles

philosophy prides itself on caring for your skin and your wellbeing, with a belief that, while what's in its jars and bottles can help you achieve better looking skin, what's "on" its jars and bottles "can inspire better days". From its creative product names to the packaging's vintage-style photography (to celebrate philosophy's love of friends and family) and lower case font style (a way of highlighting the childlike spirit in all of us), the whole philosophy brand reflects the belief that only when you feel good can you truly look your best.
