A woman named Lise Watier founded a cosmetics company 40 years ago and named it after herself. In 1968, she decided to create cosmetics she could use for herself and for the students of her beauty institute that met higher standards than any that were available at the time.
Lise Watier started her career in television as Quebec's leading voice in women's issues. Through this platform she realized she could help women feel beautiful both inside and out. She left television in 1968 and opened the Lise Watier Institute that taught women about personal growth, grooming, etiquette and makeup. It was at the institute that she realized no one was making the products she really wanted to use, so she decided to make them for herself.
Lisa Watier Cosmetiques has been successfully operating for over 30 years, as of 2015, and prides itself in leading the way in scientific research. The company works with some of the world's leading cosmetics laboratories. Each ingredient is carefully chosen for each product and new compounds are regularly discovered in the laboratories. The company has a large team of researchers and biochemists who maintain the high standards that Madame Watier set for quality, conformity and effectiveness. Madame Watier is often the first person to test products and does not let any of her products be released without undergoing a rigorous testing schedule.
