If you have questions with regard to skin diagnosis, skin care and applications for the skin with susceptibility to acne, atopic skin, erythema as well as cornification and barrier disorders and skin protection in general please refer to our numerous publications in the trade press. You are also welcome to download the articles as html or pdf format (recommended) from our websites. Questions via mail or phone are also appreciated. We are happy to provide personal advice at our headquarters at Leichlingen.

We also like to emphasize that besides the large variety of finished products our product concept also allows to individually adapt creams, masks, packs, lotions as well as massage and ultrasound media with active agent concentrates to the specific skin conditions. This enables the beauty institutes to practically treat any type of skin condition with a few products only.

Moreover dermatics in the form of extemporaneous preparations are always developed for dermatology and pharmacy from base creams which are conform to the European pharmacopoeia. The formulations are written down in a monography that is readily available for pharmacies.

Studies on the practical use of the products have been carried out on national and international level. Dermatological practices and institutes will be provided with a detailed documentation of several hundred pages (handbook). A multitude of training courses is offered for the professional staff.
