If you haven't been able to get to know Babor better yet, we would like to introduce you to their history and products below.
Babor is a leading provider of professional skin care that combines the best of nature with science. Over 60 years of experience, the latest technologies, leading scientists and natural ingredients guarantee outstanding product quality. All products are developed and manufactured in Aachen and bear the seal of quality "Made in Germany". Babor is run as a family business in the third generation and very often cultivates a long-term personal partnership with its employees and customers.
In 1955 the chemist Dr. Michael Babor developed the HY-ÖL, a unique cleaning product that is still one of the bestsellers of the Babor brand today. In the following year he founded the company Babor in Cologne under the name Dr. Babor GmbH. In 1962, the Achen entrepreneur Leo Vossen took over 90% of the company shares. In the 1970s the company continued to grow and was therefore on the lookout for a new location. In 1977 it finally found what it was looking for in Aachen, where it still has its headquarters today. In the 1980s, the first two subsidiaries were founded in the USA and Belgium, followed by further subsidiaries in Switzerland, Austria, Canada, the Netherlands, Greece, Great Britain and some Asian countries in the 1990s. In the 2000s, the company became more and more well known and successful, so that the space in the company's headquarters slowly became scarce. For this reason, around 5 million euros were invested in the expansion of production and the construction of additional office space in 2013. After years of successful management by the children of Leo Vossen, Jutta Kleine-Tebbe and Leo P. Vossen, their children Martin Grablowitz and Isabel Bonacker took over the management of the company in 2014. Due to the increasing demand for Babor products, the number of employees has grown steadily and reached 400 at the headquarters in Aachen and more than 500 worldwide in 2016. From 2017 to 2018, the company was again expanded by 5000 square meters with the construction of "The Curve", which cost around 20 million euros. Further buildings are already being planned for the future. These will probably not be constructed directly in Aachen, but in the vicinity, between Inden and Eschweiler.
Babor is primarily dedicated to professional skin care, but also offers a wide range of make-up. Below you will find an overview of the product ranges we offer in our shop.
