On the pristine shores of Switzerland’s Lac Leman, Clinique, La Prairie was founded with a single purpose: to offer a path to rejuvenation. Dr Paul Niehans, a brilliant graduate of Zurich University, has been convinced that the science was the key to unlocking the secrets of eternal youth. After years of research, he made a breakthrough, developing cellular therapy at the clinic in 1931. And it had astonishing results.
Dr Paul Niehans’ approach was as audacious as it was effective. A word began to spread among elite echelons of society discreetly. Drawing artists, royal and world leaders started coming to the bespoke clinic, which soon became a sanctuary of rejuvenation — a place where time stood still.
That same audacity has characterized La Prairie since its very inception. Taking inspiration from the clinic, La Prairie created its Exclusive Cellular Complex. Based on the science of cellular therapy, the Exclusive Cellular Complex is a closely held secret that sits at the very heart of La Prairie. By continuing to develop ground-breaking yet sublime formulations using most precious and sumptuous ingredients – rich caviar, rare platinum and opulent gold – La Prairie has elevated science to an art.
La Prairie continues to pursue this heritage of art, science and pioneering excellence, fusing Swiss precision, scientific innovation, precious ingredients and a subtly conceived, magical experience based on performance. La Prairie’s quest has become a promise – a promise of time.
