Academie’s Brand History
Its humble roots began in France in1890, as a family owned company. They held beauty salons and licensed therapists in high regard and believed in selling beauty products only through those channels. Since then much research and development has happened to help the brand meet the changing demands of the skincare market. Two of their products made the cut to join our Skincare Supremes in the recent Beauty Award Winners 2019.

A lightweight formula that is perfect for Singaporean weather this is the perfect all day, under makeup sunscreen for the hot Singapore sun. The sunscreen seeps into pores quickly without leaving a white cast on your makeup. The sunscreen contains melon extracts which is anti-oxidant rich perfect in rejuvenating skin cells in dry and tired skin. This anti-pollution skincare product perfects skin complexion and even evens out hyper pigmentation with continued use.
The sunscreen has the usual functions of being both UVA/UVB protective and an SPF of 50++. It also prevents you from getting affected by pollution by creating a layer between free radicals that exist in the atmosphere. Indoor pollution is a silent killer. For example staying indoors in an office environment can lead to larger your pores and add to dull and uneven skin. Easy touch ups that go over smoothly on top of makeup, so reapply all day long.

Academie Pro Ageing Beauty Seminar
Beauty Insider had the unique opportunity to visit Academie’s latest beauty seminar. There, we interviewed the General Director, Mr Christophe Therme about the history of the company and how Academie is changing its skincare efforts to meet the changing demands of a challenging industry.
Beauty Insider: Why is Beauty Salons the pillar of Skincare for Academie?
Mr Therme: Beauty therapists are the only licensed professionals who know your skin and can customise a solution for your skin needs. A facialist begins each appointment with a skincare analysis. In order to produce the best results for yourself you need to know what state your skin is in and how best the Academie’s skincare products can help your skin.
Beauty Insider: What are some of the things you see changing in the skincare industry?
Mr Therme: The use of natural ingredients have become hugely popular in amongst beauty professional and customers. For Academie we feel that 100% organic is too unstable to trust the quality of the product. We have focused on using over 41% natural ingredients and peptides to mirror natural functions our skin does. This combined with our advanced serums will be the best combination to meet modern women’s skincare needs.
Beauty Insider: What is the biggest mistake a busy working woman is making with her skincare routine?
Mr Therme: Two things; hydration and anti-pollution skincare. Cities tend to be polluted and drying! And hydration is a major factor for premature ageing skin. Academie’s approach to this is to plump up skin from the dermis region while combining the products in a professional setting (facial salon) and a home care series too.
