Research & Development

Our claim: Natural ingredients for the greatest efficacy and compatibility

At BABOR, research means exceeding our own limitations, consistently thinking outside the box, and always being open to the undiscovered. Our extensive research and development work focuses on resolving beauty concerns and on the preservation of natural beauty.

We look for targeted solutions to concrete skin problems and beauty requirements. Interdisciplinary teams of scientists comprising dermatologists, geneticists, biochemists, molecular biologists, physicians and diabetologists work in tandem with renowned universities and other leading research institutes to continuously produce groundbreaking innovations, made in Germany.

This interdisciplinary cooperation fuels breakthrough research results, which lend the BABOR products their incomparable efficacy and compatibility. BABOR research puts its trust in natural plant extracts and evaluates their efficacy in dermatological tests. Produced in line with pharmaceutical standards and tested for quality, the high-performance creams land in the experienced, expert hands of the BABOR Esthetician. From concept to application in the beauty institute – BABOR BEAUTY INTELLIGENCE.
