Sustainably and responsibly

As a cosmetics company with international responsibility, it is very important to us to produce and distribute our products in an environmentally friendly way. We think long-term and have therefore taken various measures to ensure the sustainable development of M. Opitz & Co. AG and for the benefit of our employees.

Environmentally friendly production

M. Opitz & Co. AG creates sustainable and resource-saving products with the greatest respect for the environment. This is why our products are produced exclusively in Switzerland, a location that offers many product-quality and environmental benefits.

  • Already today, our products are produced virtually carbon-neutrally. This is made possible by the use of district heating to heat the building and the in-house processing of white steam. A photovoltaic system on the company roof is also in the pipeline.
  • The water used is of drinking quality, as it is cleaned and treated in our state-of-the-art microfiltration plant.
  • Certified suppliers ensure that only the best natural raw materials are used.
  • We use recycled cardboard for the folding boxes of our product lines.
  • For the foil we use 100 per cent degradable cellophane, which can be recycled as compost.
  • All residual materials are separated for recycling.

Responsible handling

M. Opitz & Co. AG supports the uniqueness and beauty of every man and woman, responding to the needs of different skin types. At our company, the state-of-the-art technologies and intensive research are based on traditional values such as reliability, precision and innovation. For us, "Swissness" embodies a promise of quality.

  • We consistently reject animal testing. And not just in our own research and development: we only use raw materials that have not been tested on animals.
  • Our area of responsibility entails careful handling of all raw materials as well as training of all employees and continuous expansion and sustainable investment.
  • Our business is regularly audited by energy and environmental consultants.
  • Our production processes are also regularly checked by auditors. In addition to the Swiss-Medic certificate, we also have the Cosmetics GMP, Pharma GMP as well as ISO 9001 and ISO 22716 certificates.
  • We ensure end-to-end process monitoring through constant in-process controls.
