BABOR has always been super deluxe. It’s excellence as Europe’s No.1 beauty brand has been providing skin magic via plants and science since 1956. But the still family-owned company started long before they were official launched.

Here’s a beauty truism: The more raw and potent one gets when it comes to skincare ingredients, the more science and money it takes to extract them and, more importantly, sustainits actives throughout a serum or cream’s life.
So, whether you were being retrofitted at a luxury alpine spa way back in the 1950s or just getting on board with plant-based skin treatments today, BABOR has always been eons ahead of the curve. TIP: Skincare junkies might enjoy the website’s “about us” with some terrific milestone anecdotes of firsts, including the brand’s renowned HY-ÖL two-step oil cleanse.
One of their newest launches is Doctor Babor’s CLEANFORMANCE line with Phyto CBD Serum and Phyto CBD Cream ($64.95 ea.), containing potent doses of Phyto CBD, pre- and probiotics and hemp seed oil, pummeling our dermis with more than 95% naturally derived vegan ingredients. Real plants that penetrate at a cellular level for soothing, regenerating, aged-reversed skin. Amazing. Yes, it’s luxurious, but it’s priced nice and feels like it cost a fortune. You’ll totally get it at the very first application.
On a global level, for every Doctor Babor CLEANFORMANCE product sold, BABOR plants a tree in the Babor Forest near the company headquarters in Aachen, Germany. Every. Product. Sold.
Where everything is somewhat new in the CBD beauty world, the trusted legacy brand BABOR removes the investigative guesswork with comfort and reliability in a perpetually crowded market.
