Science & Research
BABOR transforms cutting edge science into meaningful skincare solutions. We are one of the few skincare companies to have a large dedicated, in-house research and development team, and so use our scientific expertise and reach to drive new skin solutions faster - from discovery through development to market.
For more than fifty years we have produced high quality products from our factory in Aachen, a location chosen for its proximity to the thermal spring waters enjoyed since Roman times. BABOR is dedicated to producing products which are highly efficacious – but also a joy to use. Creams melt into skin without greasy residue and cleansing products moisturise and protect as well as deep clean.
At BABOR, research means stretching your own boundaries, thinking outside the box and always keeping an open mind about future discoveries.
Our extensive R&D work starts with the skin or beauty problem and then we conduct research to find solutions.
Teams of interdisciplinary experts – including dermatologists, geneticists, biochemists, molecular biologists, doctors and diabetes specialists work closely with renowned universities and other leading scientific establishments to constantly create groundbreaking innovations.
A key hallmark of our work is the respect we show towards nature and its precious active substances. Consequently, we use raw materials that are obtained from controlled organic cultivation and are based on renewable resources.
Since the company’s founding in 1956, BABOR has expressly renounced animal testing. It goes without saying that in future BABOR will not conduct or commission any animal experiments to test its products.
Our high quality and purity requirements as regards raw materials and strict quality controls guarantee a very high degree/level of security and quality of our products. In the development of our BABOR products we abstain from:
- PEGs (polyethylen glycols)
- synthetic silicon oils
- mineral oils that irritate the skin
- paraffins and paraffin derivatives
- animal-based raw materials
