Responsibly developed products that are good for more than just your skin
True to our roots, we believe in effective skincare made beautifully simple
Glowing, balanced skin begins with some of the best ingredients that science and nature can offer
The ACO story is rooted in Sweden with a deep scientific heritage. Founded by the Apotekarsocieteten who sought a quality stamp for their skincare products originally developed and created in the pharmacies, the name ACO was chosen as an abbreviation of Apotekens Composita, meaning “the pharmacy's mixture.”
Through our journey of becoming leaders in Swedish skincare to our expansions into new countries, ACO has evolved to now encompass a full line of cruelty-free products with carefully-selected ingredients to suit all skin types, in almost any climate.
Our launch in the United States marks a new chapter in the ACO story, and we are thrilled to share our skincare innovations with you.
We hope our authentic core values give you a feeling of trust in our products, pride in our commitment to uncomplicated, cruelty-free beauty, and confidence knowing that our gentle, carefully-chosen ingredients will provide uncompromised results.
For over 80 years, ACO’s skincare scientists have been committed to developing clean, effective skincare for all—no matter the skin type. For us, clean beauty has always meant using safe and effective ingredients that fulfill a clear purpose. Our ingredients are always carefully selected to work in balance with the skin, helping it to be its best.
As pioneers of clean beauty since 1939, we fully support the strict EU ingredient standards. Inspired by both nature and science, we will continue to select safe and honest ingredients that are good for you and your skin, providing you with uncomplicated skincare that doesn’t compromise on results.
THE FOUNDATION FOR OUR CLEAN BEAUTY STANDARD
We’ve been committed to clean, effective skincare since our founding, and our scientists have always recognized that what we choose to keep out of our products is just as important as what we decide to keep in.
