Our vision is to improve people’s lives by providing results-oriented skin care solutions that are backed by science for the health of your unique skin.

EltaMD made the journey to the US in 1988. Backed by science and a deep medical heritage, what started as a little Swiss secret quickly became the trusted choice for wound care and healing products by hospitals and physicians around the world. In 2007, we expanded from healing skin to include protecting skin with the launch of our cosmetically elegant line of sunscreens. Today, we are the number one trusted, recommended and personally used professional sunscreen by Dermatologists in the US.

Filorga was the 1st French aesthetic medicine laboratory founded in 1978. The brand has expanded its expertise in aesthetic medicine by providing to the general public a range of revolutionary cosmetic products formulated with NCEF, a unique compound encapsulating in topical application the same ingredients used in injections. More than fifty cosmetic products have become available over time, all of which share the same principle: to combine optimal and clinically proven effectiveness with sensorial textures and premium packaging.

Our brands are professionally recommended all over the world.

We are part of the Colgate-Palmolive family, which provides our team with domestic and global career growth opportunities in all departments. Our rich benefits includes giving employees access to our amazing skin care products!
