The Ayer brand now looks back with great pride on 125 years of tradition, under the banner of innovation, luxury and confidence. Madame Récamier, one of Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte’s mistresses, was an ardent user of a beauty cream she has discovered in a chemist shop in Paris. She quickly published this news at court and in the fine circles of Parisian society. In 1887, Harriet Hubbard Ayer, born in Chicago, acquired the exclusive rights to this cream. The high-quality pot thus left French territory and conquered the world. Ayer is impressive due to its pure and high-quality ingredients, such as the finest oils of apricot, avocado or jasmine, for example. Combined with various other natural products, this results in a unique, highly effective cosmetic line.
