Our Story

Since 1979 — Energetic Skincare

PHYTO5, originally known as Phytobiodermie, has been creating truly authentic Swiss skincare products for retail consumers and spa professionals since 1979. We are expert at synergistically marrying natural high-grade essential oils and plant extracts in just the right combination and the most perfect proportions to create high vibrational skincare, or as we call commonly call it at PHYTO5, energetic.

Decades Ahead of Our Time

PHYTO5 pioneered many types of skincare products and therapies several decades ago which many cosmetics companies are only just now beginning to embrace.



Ground Zero for Swiss-Made

PHYTO5's factory, Laboratoire Gibro, S. A., is located in Fleurier, in the Swiss mountains near Neuchâtel, where watchmaking companies like Parmigiani, Bovet and Chopard were long ago established, and famed philosopher-writers like Jean-Jacques Rousseau are commonplace in conversation — in stories of the town’s past and in pointing to the region's exacting manufacturing standards of some of the world's best known and most coveted products.

Fleurier is ground zero for "Swiss-Made."

Creator of Flowers

The Fleurier name itself roughly means "Flowering Village," entirely apropos for a company whose skincare products are largely made from the essential oils of flowers.

Truly Fabriqué en Suisse 🇨🇭

While you will see many companies boast the phrase "Swiss-made" or the Swiss flag emblem when only a small percentage of their product was actually manufactured in Switzerland or when no more than the idea behind the skincare line is inspired by things Swiss, PHYTO5 skincare is 100% "Fabriqué en Suisse" (Made in Switzerland).

Book a table for lunch at the Restaurant Les Six-Communes in Môtiers, the hamlet just a mile or so from Fleurier. Dining on local char in absinthe sauce are the movers and shakers of the area’s industry: executives from Bovet, Parmigiani and Chopard; a fellow who makes watchbands; an engraver, and Fleurier’s mayor, all table-hopping and greeting one another with enthusiasm. – Kathleen Beckett, The New York Times, November 21, 3016

A.  has also earned coveted Ecocert and Cosmebio ecological and organic certifications (according to ECOCERT Standard).
