Welcome to Christine Valmy

75 years ago in Romania, Ms. Christine Valmy began creating natural skin care products with ingredients from her garden. She moved to the U.S. in 1961 and pioneered the country's esthetics profession, opening its first school shortly after. For decades, Ms. Valmy worked with her daughter, Marina, to advance the beauty industry through education and innovation in product formulas and treatment techniques. Today, Marina Valmy leads the organization, staying on the cutting edge of new trends and technologies while remaining forever true to her mother's original vision of all-natural, effective skin care.

Beauty Education

Established in 1965 as the first of its kind in the United States, Christine Valmy International School offers world-renowned education across a range of exciting and engaging beauty disciplines. Every course delivers a top-quality learning experience that passes on our industry-leading expertise to our students.

Skin Care Products

We create organic, cruelty-free products for personal and professional care. Our original formulas – invented and produced in our own laboratory and factory – are founded in our deep knowledge of how the skin functions. Using nature’s best ingredients, we combine ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic traditions and modern scientific techniques to produce products that improve the health and look of skin and deliver long-term results.

75 Years of Leadership in Skin Care

Excellence and expertise: These values are in our DNA, ever since our founder, Christine Valmy, pioneered the skin care profession in the United States.

With Ms. Valmy’s daughter, Marina Valmy, now at the helm, the Christine Valmy organization continues to push the industry forward with innovative new formulas and techniques, as well as cutting edge education for the next generation of beauty professionals. It remains, as it has always been, the company’s mission to deliver the highest quality experience across the spectrum of skin care education, treatment, and product.
