The History & Philosophy of myBlend
The origins of myBlend
“Each skin has sufficient potential to regenerate and repair its cells provided that its neuroimmune system functions well.”
Dr Olivier Courtin.
In 2007, after many years of research and experience, Dr Olivier Courtin observed that the healing of his patients’ skin depended less on their age than on their lifestyle. Diet, exercise, sleep, emotional states and environment appeared to be the key factors in their skin’s regeneration. At the same time, Dr Courtin was working with peptides, chains composed of amino acids, fundamental elements of our body’s proteins that have the ability to revive and stimulate the natural mechanisms already present within each of us.
Dr Courtin, convinced that our environment and lifestyle are the leading factors in the ageing process of our skin and that our bodies contain their own regenerative capabilities, decided it was time to create a new, personalised beauty brand.
He began by recruiting a team of experts to design a new, comprehensive beauty ritual and both skincare formulas and treatments that give maximum results. Dermatologists with expertise in communication between the skin and nerve cells, laser-therapy specialists, a dermo-nutritionist, a facialist and cosmetics professionals agreed not to choose between key molecules and natural super-ingredients, but instead to source the very best in every area and incorporate the highest concentrations tolerated by the skin into each formula. Together, they invented myBlend cosmetics, a new high-end, personalised, authentic and responsible beauty brand.

The myBlend philosophy: A new vision of beauty
“My objective is to provide women with the most effective, virtuous and respectful solution to achieve well-being and visibly transformed skin quality in complete safety.”
Dr Olivier Courtin.
This quest for skincare with maximum effectiveness led to the creation of myBlend, a personalised beauty ecosystem that stimulates the body’s natural mechanisms: a comprehensive solution combining nutri-cosmetics to target the skin from the inside, derma-cosmetics to nourish and correct skin from the outside, and high-tech devices to optimise the formulas’ results. These three pillars form the foundation of the brand and work in synergy, with uncompromising high standards in quality, effectiveness and safety for skin that is stronger, healthier, more beautiful and more radiant.
