1929, when it all started

A Swiss gentleman called Gotthilf Mettler, founder of the brand, returned from a long journey in the United Kingdom with a glycerin soap recipe handed by a British doctor. Despite the fact that this type of soap was practically unknown in Europe at the time, Mr. Mettler detected its high potential. With his entrepreneurial spirit, he decided to build his own soap factory and created the first glycerin soap in Switzerland: the “Soap for Doctors”.

1st Generation

Gotthilf Mettler’s aim was to produce high quality soaps for the private and medical sectors. Thanks to its high glycerin content, glycerin soap cleanses the skin, while protecting against dryness, avoiding chapped hands that are more susceptible to catch germs and bacteria. Our glycerin soap became rapidly a must-have and more than 90 years later, the original soap factory located in Hornussen in the canton of Aargau is still operating and nowadays, our glycerin soap is sold in most Swiss pharmacies and abroad.

2nd & 3rd Generations

The following two Mettler generations gradually extended the product portfolio and turned the soap factory into a full-fledged cosmetics company.

Inspired by nature, realized by science.

2015, rebranding

Mettler launched its new face, body and hair care brand, “Mettler1929” blending all its knowhow and experience in over 60 products. Mettler1929 formulations are mainly based on plant-derived ingredients sourced from certified suppliers. The entire product range is vegan and free of parabens. The products are only mildly fragranced and suit even the most sensitive and delicate skins.

2018, sponsoring

From 2018 to 2021, Mettler1929 was the official sponsor of the Swiss professional feminine cycling team, Cogeas-Mettler Pro Cycling Team, and the velodrome of Geneva.
