Editors' pick | HORMETA: Skin repair That truly Works for You

Its newly relocated flagship store on Spring Street in New York’s chic Soho neighborhood and a brand new store inside the Denver Airport are the only brick and mortar stores Hormeta has in the U.S. But despite that, the award winning skin care company has continued to create waves in the States, thanks in part to a loyal following of satisfied, skin-replenished clients.

Maurice Chaponnier–a scientist, herbalist and a nature lover, founded the Hormeta Swiss Laboratories in 1950. Using only the purest of active bases, all its products contain an exclusive blend of ionized materials and organic ingredients. The result of Hormeta’s vast history of pioneering research in cellular & DNA regeneration compels it to use active ingredients directly and naturally derived from the earth and the oceans, including organic plants, fruit and other botanical extracts as well as essential oils!

The Hormeta products are meant to compensate for age-related and/or hormone change-related skin deficits, in addition to epidermal damage caused by environmental exposure.

After more than 50 years of continuous work, Hormeta has taken a front-runner status in the skin care industry, outperforming other formidable and well-known brands.

According to Nancy Savitt, General Manager of the Soho flagship store, the main difference between Hormeta and most beauty and skin care products is that it focuses its research and effectiveness more on skin repair rather than anti-aging. “We don’t only prevent, we also treat the skin according to the damage that has already happened. So the ingredients are more specific like the most advanced peptides, ceramides, lipids, collagen...6 weeks of treatments we can notice a real improvement in the skin on a cellular level,” explains Savitt.

While they have several sets, the skincare specialist also recommends starting with one and incorporating it into your daily routine. All have Vitamins A, C and E as well as other trace elements like iron, zinc, magnesium, etc.

Because of the prestigious certification, SwissCos, the New York and Denver stores are the only ones allowed to sell Hormeta in the U.S. Hormeta also works exclusively with dermatologists and medical spas.
