The story behind Maria Galland Paris

Inspired and launched by a Parisian dancer and beautician, Maria Galland Paris is the premium professional skin care brand with a fascinating history.

The sixties were wild with revolutionary and youthful ideas. And the place to experience it fully was the Paris Marais district, the vibrant heart of the world capital of beauty and home to vivid creativity. With her avant-garde vision of preserving the youthful beauty and radiance of the skin, Madame Maria Galland was totally in step with the zeitgeist of this time. As a passionate dancer, she was firmly convinced that beauty was about the unique energy in each of us – which she believed could be revealed though a whole new generation of skin care cosmetics.

The beginnings of a revolutionary future in skin care

In 1962, the passionate dancer developed a treatment concept as unique as the skin itself through a fusion of state-of-the-art dermatological research and the finest cosmetic craftsmanship. And even today, over 50 years later, this treatment concept continues to set the standard in beauty care worldwide. Madame Maria Galland’s classical dancing background made her fully aware of the power of touch and kinetic energy. She used this experience to establish an effective choreography of manual gestures – the Mosaic Modelling Method, now practiced by high-end beauticians. This method is complemented perfectly by personalized lifestyle tips and guidance to bring every woman a holistic experience with exceptional results.

The skin, “a mosaic of extremely diverse needs”

It all started in her Paris residence, where the Frenchwoman opened a “beauty advisory service”. From the start, Madame Maria Galland offered customized “tailor-made beauty,” an innovative approach at the time. Her unique treatment methods targeted the needs of each individual area of the skin.

The reaction was overwhelmingly positive and quickly gained widespread approval. Soon Madame Maria Galland founded her first research laboratories and production facilities. A short time later, she opened her first beauty salon in the Parisian avenue of Rue Chateaubriand offering products and treatments produced under her own name.
