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 glycerin 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 Chapter

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.
