The brand La Prairie was created in the 30s by Paul Niehans, a prestigious Swiss surgeon. Dr. Niehans was a visionary entrepreneur who stood out for deepening in the scientific field of cell therapy to improve the functioning of certain body organs. His main concern was to give longevity to people and always a better quality of life. His treatments were quickly recognized by everyone, even to be requested by important characters in history, like royalty, politicians or even the Pope Pius XII. With this precedent, La Prairie laboratories were founded and in 1978 began to extend their cosmetic products with the creation of its first range of renowned products: Cellular skincare.
With this great success, the company was acquired by the big cosmetics company Beiersdorf Group in 1991, providing to the brand with facilities for research and test of the latest generation, based in Zurich. Thanks to all this, the skin care products from La Prairie shot to fame in the whole world, being present today in over 80 countries. In addition to their treatments for the skin, the sun care products from La Prairie offer us very advanced and beneficial formulas for our skin, due to their double action effect: protection against UV rays and against external agents that cause the deterioration of the skin. With all this, the brand has established itself as one of the top brands in the world of professional cosmetics.
