Dior craftsmanship is a meticulous, demanding manual technique, a unique area of expertise transmitted thanks to the passion of the Master-Formulators, real artisas of excellence for DIOR Skincare.
Formulation is as meticulous as a goldsmith's art: in order to obtain the perfect formula, modifications must be made step by step, ingredient by ingredient, handling tiny quantities precisely and delicately until an exceptional result is achieved. A real balancing act. This result is often the fruit of an unlimited number of attempts: a Dior formula requires between 100 and 200 tests, representing up to 1,000 hours' work spread over 6 to 12 months.
The effectiveness of the product lies at the heart of the laboratory's requirements. If, in a classic formulation, the standard creative process consists of infusing the active ingredients in pre-existing textures, that of Dior sets itself apart by developing its formulas around the heart of active ingredients, thus guaranteeing their preservation and effectiveness. Dior's Master Formulators therefore craft their formulas little by little, starting with a precious active molecule in order to preserve its strength and benefits. As every active ingredient is different, this dressing requires real "made-to-measure" work similar to that of a great couturier.
The pleasure of textures
The sensory appeal of Dior skincare is its signature. The Formulators work closely with a team of evaluators who try each of the tests and guide the formulation towards ever more effectiveness and pleasure.
The Dior skincare craftsmen therefore dress the active ingredients in beautiful textures of incomparable comfort, giving the skin immediate and long-lasting wellbeing.
