In 1881, renowned pharmacist, Théophile LeClerc, opened his pharmacy in the prestigious heart of Paris, near Place de la Madeleine. Born into a family of painters and artists, he also became a lover of art and beauty, using the basement of his pharmacy to create his various preparations. It was in this way that he created a rice powder of exceptional lightness and finesse: the T. LeClerc powder was born.
This powder was an immediate hit with the elegant women of Paris in the Belle Epoque, speaking its praise.
Today, many make-up professionals, actresses and top models use this rice powder with its perfect hold, extreme finesse and true matifying capacity.
The T. LeClerc spirit and tradition live on through its legendary retro vintage silver powder box.
