Dr Paul Herzog first imagined this invention for medical purpose but his wife Karin, professional beautician, convinced him to use it as a cosmetic base. She analyzed herself, on her own skin, the effects of the emulsions developed by her husband.
In 1975, Dr Herzog, convinced by his wife's idea, created a line of cares based on the several formulations discovered during his research. He decided then to name his collection "Karin Herzog". Sold inSwitzerland, the brand quickly won numbers of clients.
The first care was the "Oxygen Body 3%" cream. The Herzog discovered the normalizing effects that such a formula produces on the skin. Numbers of new cares will follow up for all of each the efficiency will be proved.
Encouraged by their results, Paul and Karin Herzog decided to open a first Beauty Spa inSwitzerland, on the shores of Leman Lake. Numbers of clients will run to the place to get these cares known as "miraculous". The institute is becoming famous and the quality of the cares is appreciated. Afterwards, the couple decided to commercialize their products all around the world.
To date, no other brand has such control on active oxygen for cosmetic application. Beyond the international patents, the formulas are kept as secrets that the family carefully protects. Karin Herzog is the only skincare brand built on active oxygen and its applications.
