THREE GENERATIONS AND A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE
Like his father, Dr. Gerd Eckstein honored the “total beauty” principle, and continued to strengthen the Eckstein name. Upon graduating with his doctorate in 1972, Dr. Gerd Eckstein put his energy toward modernizing and expanding the business internationally. With extensive knowledge in the use of plants and their natural properties, he pioneered products, including sensitive skin care, hyaluronic acid, and biomimetic peptides. This combination of natural science expertise, and a keen understanding of marketing and design, revitalized the company.
Prior to Dr. Gerd Eckstein’s passing in the fall of 2015, he took care to ensure that the work of Doctor Eckstein continued in the hands of his wife, daughter, and son, who each manage key areas of the business. Today, in its third generation of family leadership, Doctor Eckstein stays true to its founding philosophy, and close to its roots in Oberasbach, Germany. It continues to develop and manufacture its products with the highest standards of excellence at its original headquarters in dedication to the well-being of its customers.
