The BABOR Research and Innovation Centre has been transforming the secrets of nature into natural, high-tech products for over 55 years. These products combine nature and science to create synergetically optimised quality. Many of the select active and other ingredients are from the natural world of plants, and are obtained from fair-trade sources and organically grown. Each product is a consistent symbol of “Beauty, Made in Germany”.

Natural ingredients for the greatest efficacy and compatibility

Babor's extensive research and development work focuses on resolving beauty concerns and on the preservation of natural beauty. Interdisciplinary teams of scientists comprising dermatologists, geneticists, biochemists, molecular biologists, physicians and diabetologists work in tandem with renowned universities and other leading research institutes to continuously produce groundbreaking innovations, made in Germany. BABOR research puts its trust in natural plant extracts and evaluates their efficacy in dermatological tests. Babor's high-performance creams are produced in line with pharmaceutical standards and tested for quality.

Treating nature with respect

Babor utilizes raw materials sourced from organic farming methods and based on renewable resources. BABOR has been against animal testing since the company was first founded in 1956. Babor products are free from PEGs (polyethylene glycols), synthetic silicon oils, skin-irritating mineral oils, paraffins, paraffin derivatives free, as well as materials derived from animals.


Sustainability and Responsibility

At BABOR, environmental protection comes directly from the electrical outlet. Babor uses only naturally derived electricity from the energy provider RWE. BABOR takes great pride in its carbon-neutral shipping of products from Aachen to distributors worldwide.  As a member of the GOGREEN service, initiated by the logistics company DHL, the carbon that is emitted during transport is offset by climate protection projects.  Since 2010, BABOR promotional materials have been solely printed on FSC-certified paper. As a non-profit and independent organisation, the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) works to promote responsible forestry in order to control deforestation and to protect the environment. Respect for nature also means respect for its creatures. BABOR never has and never will conduct animal testing when evaluating the efficacy of new active ingredient complexes.  Animal testing is absolutely off-limits.
