BABOR - the German beauty pioneer. Founded by renowned biochemist Dr. Michael Babor in 1956, the company has been steadfastly focused on innovation and has established itself as a true pioneer in the field of professional skincare.

The BABOR Research and Innovation Centre has been transforming the secrets of nature into natural, high-tech products for over 55 years. These products combine nature and science to create synergetically optimised quality. The research department has been a pillar of the company since the very beginning, and has helped BABOR to establish a leading position amongst its international competitors.

Interdisciplinary teams of scientists and collaborations with renowned universities, other leading research institutes, as well as massage specialists, ensure that BABOR achieves groundbreaking research results and that all BABOR products and treatments achieve the highest level of efficacy and performance – for a visibly improved, lasting, healthy skin tone. Many of the select active and other ingredients are from the natural world of plants, and are obtained from fair-trade sources and organically grown.

Each individual product range is subjected to an exhaustive quality control process: from the development of the products in BABOR's own laboratories, to the manufacturing process, to dispatch.

Treating nature with respect

Treating nature and its valuable active ingredients with respect represents a central feature of our work. In doing so, we utilize raw materials sourced from organic farming methods and based on renewable resources. BABOR has been against animal testing since the company was first founded in 1956. In the future, they will of course continue to refuse animal testing and to refuse commissioning such tests. The high requirements with regards to the quality and purity of the raw materials that are being used, together with strict controls carried out as part of the quality tests, guarantee products with a very high degree of safety and quality.
