More than 60 years’ experience – our success story

GEWO GmbH was established in 1950, laying the foundation for our success story as a cosmetics manufacturer in Baden-Baden. To begin with, GEWO was a conventional contract filling company for the cosmetics industry. Over the years we continuously expanded our range of services to meet individual customer needs and demands. Today our core business is customer-specific development and production of high-quality care cosmetics with the focus on sensitive skin.
