A piece of history
About Olivier Midy
The Midy name is synonymous with the Parisian aesthetic and scientific innovation, having effectively built the foundation for today’s modern pharmaceutical industry. Labatories Midy was originally founded in 1718, by Francois Midy, an apothecary surgeon. He and subsequent generations advanced the use of biological actives in exotic plants from around the world by harnessing their healing properties. The family went on to create and patent a number of relevant modern pharmaceuticals. Based in Paris for nearly 300 years, the Midy name is also a symbol of French tradition and sophistication – two of its shops, after all, could be found were located on the chic, bustling streets of Rue Saint Honoré, now considered to be one of the most luxurious and fashionable streets in the world. Over the course of 10 generations, Labatories Midy evolved into what is today the oldest existing pharmaceutical company in the world.
Seven subsequent generations later, Olivier Midy is carrying on his family’s legacy with his eponymous skin care line: Olivier Midy. Everything from the packaging to product design will honor the Midy legacy of tradition, science, and innovation.
About Éclat Midy

With clean, plant-based, and anti-aging ingredients, its power-packed formula helps lock in moisture, improve elasticity, and increase collagen synthesis.

About the Founder
Born in Paris, Olivier Midy moved to Aspen at a young age where he was raised an avid skier, hiker, and outdoorsman. He began his career as an art dealer working primarily with contemporary artists. Wanting to pay tribute to his father who passed away when he was little and taps into a storied family heritage he always knew was there, he was inspired to deepen his research on the Midy family name and launch a new skincare line in the tradition of their original french pharmaceutical company, Laboratories Midy. After spending years studying history and formulations and tracking down artifacts from the original company, Olivier Midy was born as a way to honor and pass on this rich, family legacy to his daughter.
