M. Opitz & Co. AG was founded in 1965 as an independent company, when Dr Wolf Studer-Opitz and his wife Mrs Silva Studer-Opitz took over the family firm. M. Opitz Co. AG specialised in the development, production and filling of high quality cosmetic products. In 1986, they had their international breakthrough thanks to Wolf Studer's ideas and the high quality of their products.
The company is run by Caroline Studer in the second generation and exports all over the world. Thanks to our strong international presence and exceptional quality standards, we have found a permanent place among Europe's job order manufacturers and outsourcing partners, producing global brands on the outskirts of Switzerland on the trinational border between Switzerland, Germany and Austria.
To successfully support the uniqueness and attractiveness of every man and woman, we place great value on the needs of different skin types. At our company, the most modern technologies and intensive research are built upon traditional values such as reliability, accuracy and innovation. For us, "Swissness" embodies a promise of quality.
This promise also entails the careful handling of goods, regular training of all employees and the continuous development of and investment in the machine park. We take on responsibility for the future and the environment, in that we promote sustainable trade, renovate our buildings and optimise commercial processes.
Bringing innovations onto the market is a priority for us. In doing so, it is important for our specialists in research and development to consistently use raw materials that are unique in contemporary cosmetic research thanks to their high level of efficacy. The experience of our skilled, highly qualified employees, flexibility, prompt action, the ability to adapt, the specific use of ingredients and the passion to produce innovative products are some of our success factors. Thanks to our extensive and experienced quality assurance department, strict and exact controls and clinical dermatological investigations guarantee the marketability and compatibility of the products. Maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness is a given for us.
Since our foundation, animal testing on finished cosmetic products has been taboo. And it still is. In addition, "sustainable commerce" to us also means upgrading our facilities. As such, our buildings are supplied with district heating and we possess our own steam treatment plant. Residual material that we produce is also separated for recycling. Our business is regularly audited by energy and environmental consultants.
