Karl Lagerfeld, Artistic Director of CHANEL Haute Couture, Ready-to-Wear and Accessories, joined CHANEL in 1983, 12 years after Mademoiselle Chanel passed away in 1971. Karl Lagerfeld has adopted Goethe's famous motto: "Build a better future by expanding on elements of the past." At CHANEL he has changed nothing and everything, interpreting CHANEL in his own way with elegance and wit. He would have certainly met Mademoiselle's approval, since her ideas also often created mini-revolutions before becoming the industry standard.
Since CHANEL is a privately owned company, we are unable to provide annual reports and/or marketing information.

CALIFORNIA: TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAIN
CHANEL, Inc. and its affiliates (collectively “CHANEL”) recognize the importance of fair labor practices within our company and our supply chain. CHANEL condemns the evils of human trafficking and slavery and understands the importance of eradicating the practices worldwide.
It is our goal that third party suppliers within our supply chain comply with all applicable laws regarding human trafficking and slavery. To this end:
1. Verification of Supply Chain. CHANEL is in the process of verifying (with both internal and external auditors) its supply chains to address risks of human trafficking and slavery. Our policy is to work with suppliers that do not use forced labor of any kind. CHANEL will not work with any supplier who it determines engages in human trafficking, slavery, or other forms of forced labor.
2. Audits. CHANEL conducts selected overall audits of suppliers, including audits regarding conditions of work and notably the use of forced labor. Such audits have been conducted by both internal and external auditors and have been conducted on both an unannounced and announced basis. Some of these audits have been based on the International Standard: Social Accountability 8000.
CHANEL has also been certified by the Responsible Jewelry Council (“RJC”), which is an international not-for-profit organization whose mission is to advance responsible ethical, social and environmental practices with respect to human rights through the jewelry supply chain. RJC’s principles contain the following commitment: “We will not use forced, bonded, indentured or prison labor, nor restrict the movement of employees and dependents.”
3. Supplier Certification. Efforts are made to obtain from direct suppliers certification that the products they are producing for CHANEL comply with applicable labor laws. Prohibitions against forced labor and human trafficking are part of our purchase order standard terms and conditions.
4. Accountability. Senior leadership at CHANEL, Inc. supports our commitment to fair employment practices. Employees who are responsible for supply chain management shall be held accountable for ensuring that CHANEL does not work with suppliers that use forced labor or who engage in human trafficking. In the event of a potential violation of this principle, we would take appropriate remedial action based on the circumstances, including, but not limited to, promptly addressing the issue with the supplier, conducting audits to confirm that the supplier has addressed and remedied any potential violations, and/or terminating our business relationship with the supplier.
5. Training. CHANEL, Inc. provides training to its employees with direct responsibility for supply chain management regarding issues of human trafficking and slavery.
Conclusion: CHANEL is committed to fair employment practices and the upholding of human rights. CHANEL will continue to take all appropriate measures to prevent human rights violations (including slavery and human trafficking) in its supply chains.

Haute Couture is exclusive custom-fitted clothing that is made to measure. Only certain fashion houses are legally permitted to use the term Haute Couture. These fashion houses must present a collection of 50 or more pieces to the press in Paris twice a year. The collection must be made in their own ateliers and they must show the collection in-house, in dedicated salons.

All Chanel lenses are 100% protective against UV rays (UVA and UVB) and offer UV 400 protection. The lenses absorb UV rays up to 400 nanometers, according to international standards.

Use the cloth provided in your sunglasses case to gently wipe your frames, while either dry or slightly dampened with water. When not using your sunglasses, store them in their case to protect against scratching or the damages associated with extreme heat exposure.
Chanel sunglasses are made in Italy and manufactured by Luxottica Group:
Piazzale Luigi Cadorna, 3
Chanel sunglasses are not suitable for direct viewing of the sun or for viewing of solar eclipses, not suitable for use as protection against UV rays from artificial light sources (e.g., tanning beds), not suitable for use as eye protection against blows or impact, and not suitable for driving at night or in poor-visibility conditions.
Eyewear products are guaranteed against defects for 24 months.
All products purchased at an authorized Chanel eyewear vendor include a 24-month warranty. However, defects caused by accidents or improper use are not covered under the warranty.
We apologize for any problems you may experience with your sunglasses.

Yes. All Chanel makeup and skincare products are tested by dermatologists and ophthalmologists to ensure that they’re hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic (non-pore-clogging) and safe for people who have sensitive skin or wear contacts. The CE.R.I.E.S. Laboratories, whose scientists study the functions of skin, have assembled an international panel of women whose skin has been recognized as highly sensitive by dermatologists.

Because Chanel is at the forefront of colour, we have to retire certain shades and limited-edition products to make room for new creations and collections each season.
Other products are discontinued for various reasons, such as a change in market demands or Chanel introducing an updated, enhanced product line that effectively replaces an existing line.
Certain discontinued products may be found on chanel.com in our “Only@” section. However, if you have specific questions about a product you can’t locate online, a Chanel Customer Care Representative can recommend a replacement. Please email us for any questions.
Select your formula based on the finish and coverage you desire. Chanel foundations are available in matte, semi-matte, natural and velvet finishes, with coverage that ranges from sheer to full. Most Chanel foundations contain sunscreen with an SPF factor of at least 15. For more information, please visit our Makeup section.
When first selecting a foundation, it's best to choose two shades that match your skin’s natural undertone: one that you feel might be a shade lighter than your skin, and one that you feel might be just right. Using a cotton swab, place two stripes along your jawline. Wait a full minute for the foundation to disappear, then blend each stripe. The stripe that truly disappears is the correct shade.
To discover how a specific fragrance reacts with your body chemistry, we recommend that you allow a few hours to fully experience the scent. Fragrances are composed of top, middle and base notes. The top note imparts a first impression; the middle note unfolds a few moments after application; and the base, or heart note, is the lasting impression that embraces the wearer for hours.
Chanel recommends fragrance layering to fully develop your signature scent. Begin by applying a scented bath soap, bath gel or bath oil. After the bath, apply a body lotion or body cream to soften skin. Then, apply a bath powder, spray on an invigorating Eau de Toilette Spray and touch Eau de Parfum on pulse points. As Gabrielle Chanel said: “Perfume should be worn wherever you expect to be kissed.”
Broad-spectrum sunscreens protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreen products that meet specific guidelines are labeled broad-spectrum.
No. The formulas remain the same.
These products were reevaluated with the FDA’s new SPF testing methods and discovered to have SPF 15 coverage.
In the U.S., Chanel must comply with the standards and regulations of the FDA. New FDA testing methods have labeled PERFECTION LUMIÈRE as SPF 15. Other countries do not have these guidelines. They are subject to other global guidelines, which label PERFECTION LUMIÈRE as SPF 10.
Both physical and chemical sunscreens are used, depending on the desired texture and level of protection. Physical sunscreens are Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, while chemical sunscreens are Octinoxate, Oxybenzone and Avobenzone.
Unfortunately, these products are not water-resistant.
For incidental sun exposure (such as a regular work day with limited sun exposure), Chanel recommends using foundation and skincare products with SPF. For long-term sun exposure (more than an hour), Chanel recommends incorporating UV ESSENTIEL SPF 50.
CC CREAM and UV ESSENTIEL both offer protection higher than SPF 15.
