History of SAMPAR
SAMPAR is the brainchild of Patrick Sounigo, a man of many talents. After completing six years of medical studies at Cochin Hospital in Paris, he decided to full-heartedly pursue his true calling and make cosmetology his main focus. In 1984, in the Saint Germain de Près neighborhood, he inaugurated the Institut Samuel Par, a one-of-a-kind skin pampering destination that was to become a “must” in the world of beauty. Here was offered an eponymous line of skin treatments developed with active natural ingredients. Samuel Par very quickly set itself apart with its never-before-seen concept: skin correctors, personally tailored treatments destined to equilibrate cutaneous imbalances of varying skin types.
The year 2004 marked a turning point. Patrick Sounigo dreamt of an urban brand, one that would reflect its times. He was then introduced to Antoine Bouillot, a talented designer with a shared vision. Together they created SAMPAR, a brand with authentic and pure compositions, instilled with unparalleled elegance and built not only on the solid foundation of SAMUEL PAR but also around the lifestyle of the real Parisian woman.
As of 2011, the brand SAMPAR is represented in over 1,000 select beauty locations in the world.
SAMPAR, Beauty Cannot Wait
Dedicated to discerning women looking for smart products, SAMPAR takes skincare to a higher level of performance, enriching its groundbreaking formulas with an exclusive complex: Urban Advance.
As a result, the skin recovers a state of equilibrium, which in turn allows care efficacy to be optimized and leads SAMPAR active ingredients to higher levels of performance.
SAMPAR, the founder, Patrick Sounigo
”For more than 20 years, I’ve dedicated myself to the research and development of cutting-edge cosmetic solutions. A unifying theme in all of my work has from the beginning been the dream to awaken and reveal a woman’s natural beauty, as if it were simply hibernating. And so was born the "Smart Skin" concept, an approach with the purpose of resetting the skin's natural defenses and ensuring that all SAMPAR product provide an optimal outcome that is both effective and healing.
SAMPAR is the culmination of all my convictions and knowledge gathered over the years. It is also evidence that the skin is an intelligent organ that sometimes needs a helping hand.”
