A tradition of continuous innovation
Dermocosmetics company specializing in antiaging treatments for environmentally friendly skin and hair care and health
EFFECTIVE, HEALTHY AND SUSTAINABLE COSMETICS
Fridda Dorsch (+ Farma Dorsch) was founded in 1983, when its founder, Ana Fridda Dorsch, Doctor in Natural Medicine from the University of Florida, decided to create an anti-aging dermatological line inspired in nature to alleviate the symptoms of an incurable autoimmune disease that caused premature aging of her skin.
That was where it all began. The firm’s first line grew to become a broad range of eco-friendly hair, face and body products to meet every skin and hair need.
One of Fridda’s main objectives has always been to create allergen-free treatments of exceptional quality and proven efficacy for her skin problems, a goal that led to anti-aging treatments for all skin types, but especially designed for sensitive skin.
At present, + Farma Dorsch retains the same brand values originally held by the firm in the 1980s
