Swiss Beauty Care
In 1938, company founder Mila Opitz-Altherr began to experiment with care products. When she ended up creating and marketing her own organic skin cream, more or less by chance, it didn’t occur to anyone that she had laid the foundation stone not only for her own brilliant career, but for the creation of an internationally successful cosmetics company. In 1965, the family business was restructured to accommodate increased business volumes. The new in-house research and development department and a broadening of the service spectrum enabled the company to establish a stronger penetration of neighboring foreign markets and to carefully build up the wider international presence. Mila d’Opiz products are now available in 42 countries on five continents, where they are synonymous with innovative and effective Swiss skin care. In 1994 Mila d’Opiz became the first Swiss company to acquire ISO certification, proactively backing its own exceptionally high standards of quality early on with official recognition, documentation and safeguards.
