Garnier is a worldwide company affiliated with 29 other brands owned by L'Oreal. As of 2009, Garnier has three product lines concentrating on helping consumers with personal appearance. Garnier offers skincare, haircare, hair color and styling products, which are distributed in 16 countries.
The first Garnier product was made by Alfred Garnier in 1904, a hair tonic. The full company name, Laboratories Garnier, originated in the 1920s as a producer of haircare products made with organic ingredients. Garnier continues that mission today, as all of its products are made with natural ingredients. The L'Oreal Group has owned Garnier since 1965.
