A family story

The history of this prestigious brand begins on the heights
Lake Geneva.

In 1949, Maurice Chaponnier, chemist, herbalist and researcher, studied the
benefits of oligotherapy. During his research, he highlights the incredible power of trace elements on the body and more specifically on the skin.

A pioneer in his field, he then has the idea of ​​introducing them into
cosmetic care products, and founds HORMETA Laboratories.

Perpetuating the work of his father, Jean-François Chaponnier succeeds him
and develops exceptional anti-aging treatments inspired by the prestige of rare and precious ingredients from Swiss nature.


A know-how inheritance

In 2014, the Bouchara family took over the reins of the company and continued the work initiated by its founders.

With her experience in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic field, founder of Laboratoires Bouchara and owner until 2011 Uriage Dermatological Laboratories, she then embarks on a new adventure: discover the brand throughout the world.

Very quickly, the Bouchara family perceives the avant-garde potential of the use of micronutrients by the topical way. A unique science is born: Oligocosmetics.
