Our Story

Mother and daughter are putting on face cream.The Edelbio story began with a shared moment between mother and daughter

When her oldest daughter was very small, Karine was going through her typical morning routine of lotions, potions and perfumes.

Eager to join in the primping process, Chloe pointed to the array of products on the bathroom counter and uttered three words that would change Karine’s life: “Me too, Mommy!”

At that moment, Karine realized that she didn’t really know what chemicals might be hiding in her beauty products – or if they were safe for Chloé’s sensitive skin. Then she realized something else: they may not be safe for her own skin.

With her background in marketing and a passion for organics, Karine spent the next few years developing a skin care line that would meet her newfound standards.

Edelbio Blooms

As a native of Switzerland, Karine grew up steeped in the integrity of Swiss tradition. So it was natural for Karine to return to her roots and collaborate with a Swiss lab using time-tested European ingredients.

By combining Swiss technology and organic botanicals, she created a product she could feel confident sharing with her daughters – and mother-daughter duos all over the world.

In 2008, Edelbio was born. The name echoes “bio” (life) and “edel” from the edelweiss plant that grows wild in the Swiss Alps.

Remember the song “Edelweiss” from the classic film The Sound of Music?  “…small and white, clean and bright, you look happy to meet me.”

Edelweiss may be small, but it packs a powerful punch. And it’s the star ingredient in our exclusive Organic Swiss Alps Complex, a synergistic blend of rejuvenating fruit and flower extracts.
