Garnier Ambre Solaire

Garnier Ambre Solaire

In 2010, AmbreSolaire celebrates its 75th anniversary, an occasion to remember the history and innovations of Garnier's legendary brand with the fragrance of summer holiday... An occasion also to pursue the saga with a new generation amber-colored oil: Golden Protective Oil.


In 1935, EugèneSchueller invents the first sun protection oil, AmbreSolaire, the only tanning oil that contains a sun filter. "Tanning five times faster without burning," becomes possible. It's a revolution! AmbreSolaire oil becomes the essential product on the beach for the very first paid holidays. Summer after summer, the legendary and original fragrance, a subtle blend of rose and jasmine, quickly became synonymous with summer holidays.

A pioneer in suncare products for 75 years, GarnierAmbreSolaire is a forerunner in sun protection for the whole family. Garnier is the 1st brand for sun protection in France, Spain and the United Kingdom, n°1 in Russia.

GarnierAmbreSolaire’s mission is to protect the whole family. We have developed a complete range over the years. Our researchers develop products that are increasingly innovative and pleasant to use, products that push the boundaries of formulation without compromising on protection. Protective oils, milks or mists, transparent sprays, specific lines for sensitive skin or children, a wide range of adapted solutions to provide protection while enjoying the sun.

Garnier returns to its cult product and adds maximum sun protection: Huileambréeprotectrice SPF 10, 15 and 20

People who love to tan often neglect protection. They prefer suncare products with low or even no protection. They love to expose themselves for long periods, even during the hottest hours of the day when the sun is at its peak. Their obsession: obtain an even, deep tan. Tanning buffs have a very risky attitude toward the sun. Every summer it was the same dilemma: protection or tan. In 2010, it’s finished!

For the first time, GarnierAmbreSolaire offers UVA-UVB SPF 10, 15 and 20 protection in new oils. Their innovative formulas are patented.

Their exclusive photostable filtration system with Mexoryl™ XLprotects from damage caused by the sun and prevents premature skin aging. The formula is also enriched with vitamin E, which has anti-oxidant properties. It is water-resistant.

Radiance and Softness

Huilebronzante, traditionally loved by sun "fans", is an excellent nourishing formula enriched with shea butter. It gives skin unequalled radiance and softness.

Optimal tan

The amber-colored oil enhances and brightens skin. Enriched with nourishing shea oil, it smoothes and softens the skin for a satin finish and optimal tan.

Skin is well protected, tan appears deeper, more beautiful, longer.
