The Mettler soap factory was founded in 1929 in Hornussen, Switzerland by Gotthilf Mettler. Its aim was to develop and produce high quality soaps for both the private and medical sectors. Body care products and disinfectants were developed and produced later. The company’s star product is undoubtedly its plant-based glycerin soap, which, with its high glycerin content, hydrates and sanitizes gently. Now, even after more than 80 years, the glycerin soap is still handmade in Hornussen and exported all over the world.
The oldest Swiss soap factory has become a full-fledged cosmetics company, with its own development and production sites which are both based in Hornussen. In addition to soaps and body care products, Mettler also develops high-quality, natural skincare products for the face and hair that are suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.
In addition to “Mettler 1929”, which is its own brand mainly containing vegan formulas, Mettler also develops and produces product ranges for other Swiss and international companies – always with its focus on nature and ensuring that their products are suitable for all skin types.
Mettler is 100% Swiss, from the design work that takes place upstream to development and production, right through to logistics.
Recognized as “Swiss Quality Management”in recent years, Mettler is constantly on the lookout for guaranteed optimal solutions to satisfy the wishes of its customers and consumers. Our team of professionals welcomes every new challenge and constantly seeks to develop natural and innovative products.
