Union Swiss researches and develops skincare products. Its brands are Bio-Oil® and Lipidol®. The company was started in 1954 to import Swiss skincare products into the Union of South Africa. It later began researching and developing its own skincare products and in 2000, under new ownership, was expanded from a local skincare company to a multinational organisation, with a presence in 130 countries. Union Swiss focuses exclusively on research, development and manufacture. It has no involvement in the distribution and selling of its products. In every country where its products are sold, a leading local skincare company is licensed to do so. This collaborative multinational business model, pioneered by Union Swiss and enabled by technology built by Union Swiss, has resulted in the fastest global skincare company rollout of all time.
