The René Furterer adventure is based on a single conviction:
botany is full of essential benefits that can restore hair's strength and beauty.

A story born from Nature

Because he grew up in a village of Provence, from a young age René Furterer's senses became aware of the perfumes and colors that inspired his future formulas.

A few years later, he worked as a hairdresser in his wife’s Parisian salon. At the time, women dreamed of Marilyn Monroe's blonde locks... but there was no care capable of repairing their hair damaged by all these techniques. His answer? Creating his revitalizing cream which, to this day, provides care for and enhances even the most undernourished hair.

He went on to create the complex 5, a miraculous elixir of essential oils that turned into an unmissable beauty step. René Furterer then put his innovative vision into practice.


“Beautiful hair grows on a healthy scalp, just like a plant in fertile soil."

Legacy expertise

Legacy expertise

In 1957, René Furterer created etheirology: the philosophy of scalp health and hair beauty (etheirology, from the Greek etheira, hair, and etheiro, to heal). He put this approach into practice in his first hair Spa in Paris, by developing a three-step method: " Prepare, Wash, Treat ”which, following a precise preliminary diagnosis, offers a unique care routine based on precise steps.

The “prepare” step consists of a stimulating or soothing scalp treatment with Complexe 5 or Astera Fresh. The second step, “ Wash ", is done with the shampoo suited to the scalp's specific needs. Finally, the third stage “ Treat ", deeply repairs the hair and scalp. For the first time, women are living a unique sensory experience with natural, gourmet and tailor-made care: hair delights have just been invented.

Interpreting Nature

René Furterer continuously pushes the boundaries: he was the first to create plant-based products that included the luxurious feel of combining highly-effective products with a high level of sensory appeal. He selected rare and precious essential oils. He transforms the essence of plants into an ultimate nectar, thus transcending the potency of their therapeutic powers. Each essential oil is designed to provide a specific sensory experience along with its own benefits.

Today, it is at the Gaillac site in France that these high-quality plant-based active ingredients are transformed into formulas, with their effectiveness being obtained through a unique expertise that respects the environment ( ISO 14001 certification).

If the René Furterer brand transforms and enhances nature, it is always in line with the responsible and certified approach of the Pierre Fabre Green Mission. Everything is thus used to guarantee, innovate, respect and preserve the plant world.


Haute Coiffure

René Furterer also has a special place in haute coiffure, high hairstyling, the perfect embodiment of hair beauty. It’s here that his creative talent is expressed, in haute coiffure shows, on the catwalks of France and in the brilliant world of inspiring haircuts. René Furterer encourages inspiration, artistic creation and bridges that naturally weave between fashion and hair.
