OUR HISTORY

FILORGA, AN EXPERT IN AESTHETIC MEDICINE

Filorga, the 1st French aesthetic medicine laboratory founded in 1978, originally designed, developed and produced injectable products that were used by leading medical specialists all over the world.

In 2007, the brand made its expertise in aesthetic medicine available to the general public upon the creation of MEDI-COSMETIQUE®, a range of revolutionary anti-ageing products formulated with NCEF, a unique compound encapsulating the active ingredients used in injections.

More than fifty cosmetic products have become available over time, all of which share the same principle: to combine optimal and clinically proven effectiveness visible in 7 days* with sensorial textures and premium packaging. 

FILORGA is today present in more than 70 countries throughout the world…

* Tested on all FILORGA day creams (except PIGMENT-WHITE, anti-dark spot effectiveness visible in 15 days).

FILORGA: KEY DATES

1978

Michel Tordjman, a French doctor of aesthetic medicine and enthusiastic cellular biologist, began research on skin ageing that led him to focus on cellular rejuvenation through mesotherapy. Long before the phenomenal success of botox, he developed injectable products with hyaluronic acid for use by the medical profession and created NCTF, a revitalising anti-ageing solution that acts on the 6 key parameters of skin quality: hydration, wrinkles, firmness, radiance, evenness and pores. Initially used by medical staff in anti-ageing mesotherapy injections, NCTF later gave way to NCEF, the encapsulated compound used in the cosmetic range for profound skin penetration.

2000

Laboratoires Filorga launched GLYKOPEEL, a range of anti-ageing glycolic acid peels for use by doctors to rejuvenate the skin and improve its condition. 

2007

Laboratoires Filorga launched their MEDI-COSMETIQUE® cosmetic range for the general public, directly inspired by aesthetic medicine. Products launched at the time, including Optim-eyes and Meso-Mask*, became iconic best-sellers.
