The cosmetics industry is like many others in perpetual motion. And as usual, one event chases another. It’s always time to remember. This is what François Canac offers us in this small series of contributions.
Many know François from his time in the industry through his functions in the ISIPCA organization of continuing education. Far fewer people have known him in other positions within the cosmetics industry, and probably even fewer people in his new adventure as a business creator.
He looks back on his time at Yves Rocher and reminds us in passing of one of the great figures of this profession from the 70s to 2000, Paul Tisnes.
Paul was Director of the Yves Rocher laboratories, founder of CERCO, one of the first, if not the first internal evaluation center in a company. Paul Tisnes was also President of the French Society of Cosmetology from 1975 to 1976.
In the recent past, François launched himself into entrepreneurship by creating a range of beauty products based on oysters marketed under the name of Edulis. He presents his range and how it came to be.
Thanks to François for his contributions. As he says: This could perhaps inspire others to tell their stories and open the Cosmétothèque to men and women and trades. Is it necessary to specify that this kind of approach, beyond the interest for the Cosmétothèque, makes it possible to contribute to a duty of memory that we really need.
Welcome to all volunteers.
