In support of World Arthritis Day on 12th October 2017, Clarins and Arthritis Ireland have formed another great partnership against rheumatic diseases. Clarins already has a longstanding affiliation with Fondation Arthritis, which was set up by the founder of the brand Jacques Courtin-Clarins in 1989 to help his wife who suffered from rheumatoid polyarthritis. Originally named the Association for Polyarthritis Research it was subsequently renamed as Fondation Arthritis in 2006. Since then, Clarins has been working in and leading private fundraising initiatives for arthritis research. In 2016 they succeeded in raising €250,000 through the sale of Tonic Body Treatment Oil and this year they hope to do it again.
For every Tonic Body Treatment Oil sold, Clarins will make a donation to Arthritis Ireland to fund research.
