“Not everyone has beautiful skin. But then not everyone has heard of Erno Laszlo” - Dr. Erno Laszlo
Erno Laszlo is the progenitor of modern skincare, founded in 1927 by the eponymous Hungarian-born medical doctor. Dr. Laszlo specialized in dermatology after gaining fame for transforming the complexion of Princess Stephanie of Belgium. In 1939 the Erno Laszlo Institute, pioneering in beauty treatments and cosmetics, opened on Fifth Avenue New York. His clientele was a ‘Who's Who’ of royalty, society and Hollywood. By the late 1940s, the Erno Laszlo Institute in New York had a strictly limited membership of 3,000 clients. In 1957 Erno Laszlo preparations were introduced to a wider audience at Saks Fifth Avenue. Dr. Laszlo’s philosophy of creating tailor-made products specifically formulated to confront the signs of premature aging, environmental hazards and the stress of a modern lifestyle has earned Erno Laszlo its reputation for 85 years of kept promises. It’s a legacy that continues to this day.
