At BABOR we want to fulfill your desire for flawless skin, maximize your beauty and boost your zest for life.


The art of precision skincare

It all began in 1956 with a black rose – the symbol of infinite beauty. Since then, as a pioneer in professional skincare, BABOR has set the standard in skincare research, made in Germany. Today, we remain driven by that pioneering spirit in our passionate quest for individual beauty and perfection.

Our precision formulas are based on innovative active ingredients. Their effect is enhanced by the professional expertise of BABOR estheticians in our luxurious, tailor-made treatments, which are designed to deliver maximum individual results.

At BABOR, our highly innovative active formulations are carefully combined with our exclusive treatment methods to provide outstanding results and a uniquely indulgent experience.

Precision formulas for maximum efficacy and compatibility

Science and research are part of BABOR’s DNA:

We conduct our own research at our company headquarters so that every product – from the original idea through to the finished jar – is made in Germany.

Interdisciplinary teams of scientists and collaborations with renowned universities and other leading scientific institutions ensure that BABOR achieves groundbreaking research results and the highest active ingredient performance levels.

All that together creates impressive results.

The personal enthusiasm for beauty, effectiveness and quality is evident everywhere at BABOR and felt by everyone and exactly that is our drive. With the most effective professional skin care made in Germany we want to give our customers outstanding results and an indulging experience.

With a strong team, we therefore develop excellent products that are credible - because the products have a special origin at BABOR. Each one is the result of decades of expertise in skin care research.

But we do not only think of the beauty of tomorrow, but also of the entrepreneurial success of the future. We operate sustainably and in the long term, we use entrepreneurial opportunities. With our employees and customers, we often have a long-term personal partnership. We want to maintain and expand such existing partnerships and would also like to find new partners. This distinguishes BABOR as a family business and our task and our drive is to continue these family traditions.

We can look back on more than 60 years of expertise in the industry

The beauty revolution began in 1955 when Dr. Michael Babor developed HY-Öl® cleansing oil, which would become one of the mainstays of the company. Today it remains unrivaled and one of BABOR’s all-time best-selling products. The founding of Dr. Babor GmbH in 1956 Cologne marked the start of a new era in professional cosmetics.
