Founded in 1940, the EWALD Company is meanwhile run by the fourth generation. Its founder, hairdresser Robert Schmidt, developed a mountain herb hair lotion, made from herbs, flowers and leaves which were picked by hand from Thuringian meadows, forests and fields. We are proud to continue this long tradition of genuine inventiveness and make our contribution to maintain it. To do this, we are constantly further developing our performance and follow our path of an internationally operating company preserving the values of a family-run business. ÜBERWOOD® is Ewald’s latest achievement. It represents our idea of genuine naturalness for skin & hair in a young, fresh and different way. How do we manage this? We use the age-old potency of the pine for ÜBERWOOD® and apply our expertise to turn this into modern products for skin and hair. More than 300 million years old, the pine has abilities we may constantly learn and daily benefit from. Its heartwood develops something very special: substances, some of them germicidal, which strengthen and protect the tree from inside.
