GREAT SKIN CAN BE CREATED In 1967, Carol Phillips had been an editor at Vogue magazine for more than 25 years. Always looking to provide extra service to her readers. Carol had met with Dr. Norman Orentreich for an article entitled Can Great Skin Be Created? At the time the predominant attitude toward skincare was to cover rather than care. This groundbreaking article actually helped transform the beauty industry; telling people that great skin actually could be created with the proper products and care. Soon after the article was published she and Dr. Orentreich were challenged by Leonard Lauder to create a Allergy Tested, 100% Fragrance Free line of skin care customized for people s specific needs. The result was Clinique which was based upon the groundbreaking 3-Step Skin Care System.
