The Arthritis Foundation & Clarins: A very special bond.
Disheartened by the suffering his wife endured brought on by rheumatoid polyarthritis, Jacques Courtin-Clarins, the founder of the Clarins brand, established the Association for Polyarthritis Research in 1989.
In 2006, the organisation became a non-profit.
Today, the Arthritis Foundation is the only private fundraising initiative in the field of rheumatic diseases.
Its objectives: fund rheumatoid disease research and encourage the discovery of innovative therapies. The foundation also works to raise public awareness about arthritis, how to prevent certain diseases as well as improving the quality of life of those affected by the disease.
Its resources: the scientific board brings together renowned European researchers and rheumatologists and will distribute more than 1 million euros in 2016 in the field of research.
Clarins assumes all overhead costs,100% of the donations received goes to research.www.fondation-arthritis.org
