Our mission

Back in the days, our founder Dr. Heinz Maurer provoked the experts with one sentence: "People have been washing themselves incorrectly for 2,000 years."

At Sebapharma, we consider it our mission to promote human skin health. Our sebamed brand with a pH of 5.5, which, unlike conventional soap, supports the skin’s natural protective layer and keeps the skin’s microbiome in balance. This protects the skin much better against dehydration and harmful environmental influences while keeping it healthy.

We have been successful with sebamed for more than half a century and have an excellent reputation as a global player and driver of innovation in medicinal skin care. For us and our products, outstanding skin compatibility and continuous research into innovative formulations always take centre stage.

Made in Germany

As a global leader in the field of medicinal skin and body care, Sebapharma has always seen it as its duty and responsibility to rely exclusively on German production locations. This enables us to consistently guarantee the three central quality features of our products: safety through proven skin compatibility, the highest quality raw materials and consistent, end-to-end quality control.
