Romanian cosmetics producer Farmec Cluj, whose portfolio includes the famous Gerovital brand, will open its first shop in France. The store, branded Gerovital, is located in Menton, one of the best-known resorts on the French Riviera, Farmec announced.
The shop sells cosmetics produced in Cluj-Napoca, including the recently launched Gerovital Happiness series for young people, as well as the Gerovital H3 Classic and Aslavital products.
