Who we are?
Arcancil Paris is the result of a family history: the Havlick brothers, chemist and colorist respectively, created their first creations in 1935, in a room of a few square meters in Rue des Petites Écuries, in the 10th district of Paris.
Even with the arrival of Anne Delleur Cabarrus, President of the Caméane Institute and ex-L'Oréal, who took over the reins in 2006, we have never lost sight of the family origins of the brand. We work on a human scale and our entire team is guided by the ambition to innovate, reinvent and bring Arcancil Paris to life and take its DNA ever further.
The Parisian gaze,
turned to the world
Arcancil Paris is one of the pioneers among French make-up brands and still today draws its inspiration from the hometown. Always at the forefront of innovation, our products always carry an imprint of the capital of fashion and beauty. Our ambition is to elevate Parisian elegance and chic, (also) beyond our borders. We are already present in 35 countries, in the most beautiful retail chains and online stores in Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, South America and Asia, continuing to be a strong presence internationally.
for a better world
We have always been faithful to the values we have embodied since the creation of Arcancil Paris.
We constantly strengthen our commitment to CSR: a point of honor for developing quality make-up products, formulated in the best French and European laboratories, in strict compliance with European Union standards and directives.
We undertake not to test on animals. In 2019, as part of this initiative, we developed the Lab Végétal d'Arcancil Paris, a 100% vegan makeup line committed to the environment. Furthermore, we have joined the “1% for the Planet” project, which allows us to donate 1% of our turnover to concrete associations and projects to protect the environment.
Eyes in the eyes
Arcancil Paris has been anchored in eye makeup since its inception, with a wide range of colors. From the historical mascara of the Havlick brothers to our revolutionary Khôl Kajal, we keep an eye on trends and always seek a little more to sublimate your eyes. Is it not said that the gaze is the reflection of the soul ?
