Our mission is to give everyone the opportunity to make safe, lasting changes to their health and beauty, at home.
For people who want to change something in their appearance in order to look or feel better, why isn’t there anything in between skincare products with short-term effects, if any, and expensive and often complicated clinical treatments?
That’s the question our founders asked themselves in 2011 when they were exploring the beauty industry. They discovered that there was a huge gap to fill in the market and together they set out to create a new and unique line of clinical beauty products and tools that could be applied at home. Treatments that would bring about real changes that last longer than over-the-counter cosmetics and skincare. Looking for suppliers that could live up to the very high demands required for their business idea, they discovered that the epicenter of precision tooling and advanced scientific research was found in Switzerland.
The success was immediate and growth has been exponential since the launch in 2012. Focusing primarily on online distribution keeps costs to a minimum and enables the company to deliver on their promise: to make it affordable for anyone to make a real difference in their appearance. Today, the company is firmly based in both Sweden and Switzerland. R&D takes place in in Zurich, while marketing and management is handled from Stockholm.
Swiss Clinic launches its first beauty ecommerce platform in Sweden and Norway with five functional home treatments.
A year-over-year growth of 400% sets the standard and a completely new ecommerce platform is launched together with presence in Finland late 2013 and two new product categories.
The birth of e-franchise. Denmark is the first market to launch on the domain venture license. An additional four SKU´s are presented to the markets, growth continuous to be in three figures and a beauty subscription feature is released across all countries.
The milestone +100.000 treatments sold is reached and a Center of Excellence is established in Zürich, Switzerland. Swiss Clinic is awarded several prestigious awards among them “Innovation of the year” at the Swedish Beauty Awards.
