BCG Baden-Baden Cosmetics Group GmbH
From the beginning, BCG Baden-Baden Cosmetics Group GmbH has had a close relation to nature. Already in 1949 - more than 60 years ago - the founder of the company, Walter Friedmann, together with the esthetician Rosel Heim, developed unique product formulas with pure plant ingredients.
Since more than six decades, the company has developed and manufactured successfully for the German and international market highly effective and skin-friendly cosmetics with mainly natural ingredients. An important guarantor for this success is the decades-long experience in the scientific development of cosmetic products. The company’s own laboratories permanently work on new formulations resulting in new products manufactured in-house. Efficient and close teamwork, from the first product idea until the delivery, guarantees that the latest research results can quickly generate innovative products.
History DR. SCHELLER
In 1976 Dr. Hans-Ulrich Scheller joined the cosmetic company of his parents as head of the R&D department. After his father’s death (Dr. Karl-Heinz Scheller) in the year 1978, he took over the general management of the Dr. Scheller Cosmetics AG together with his brother Karl-Alexander Scheller. His research work over many years tied to the vision to decipher nature and to program it to modern demands, gives birth to the idea to create products on the basis of natural ingredients with utmost skin tolerance and efficiency. Only healthy skin is able to develop its absolute beauty and natural radiance. On the basis of this goal and knowledge from his pharmaceutical work and herbal medicine, Dr. Scheller developed the Apotheker Scheller products in 1986. They are the result of permanent research in interaction with the proven power of nature which is optimally tailored to the individual needs of skin. With the natural cosmetics line „Apotheker Scheller – Das Naturkonzept“ Dr. Scheller Cosmetics establishes itself in the market of natural cosmetics well before the wellness boom.Preferably, raw materials from controlled organic cultivation or renewable wild harvesting are used. Raw materials and finished products are subject to controls with regard to possible residues. The quality is examined through regular and rigid controls by an independent test institute, and of course animal experiments are excluded. Since 2011 the brand belongs to the BCG Baden-Baden Cosmetics Group GmbH. Also after the relaunch at the beginning of 2012, DR. SCHELLER NATURAL & EFFECTIVE relies on the proven formulas which combine nature and science in this unique way. With purely natural and efficient ingredients such as valuable oils and high-quality plant extracts from all over the world, DR. SCHELLER NATURAL & EFFECTIVE continues to develop innovative, effective and certified natural cosmetic.
