Company philosophy


Based in Le Mont-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland, on the shores of Lake Geneva, the teams at Cellap Laboratoire apply the latest findings in cosmetic science to their work. The term cosmeceutical is frequently used when referring to our phyto and cellular products.This recently coined term is a blend of the words pharmaceutical and cosmetic - a perfect term to describe our products that use cutting-edge, scientific formulations for cosmetic purposes. 

This unique alliance between the world of beauty and that of science is what lies behind the “The Science of Staying Young” slogan that accompanies our entire range of beauty lines.

Excellence at every level

The Essence of Swiss Cosmetic Science Serving your Beauty Needs

Quality and excellence are our priorities. In order to maintain the highest standards of quality throughout production, all of our products are formulated, manufactured and packaged on the premises in our factory in Le Mont-sur-Lausanne in Switzerland, unlike most brands which subcontract their production requirements to outside firms.

Constantly striving for excellence, Cellap Laboratoire applies the latest findings in cosmetic science to its Cellcosmet and Cellmen products. Only the very best active ingredients, which have been scientifically selected and skillfully balanced to ensure the optimum effect on the skin, are used to formulate our Cellcosmet and Cellmen ranges. Made up of experts in their fields,Cellap Laboratoire's R&D department is one of the few in the world to have mastered both cellular technology (cyto bio-complexes) and plant technology (phyto bio-complexes).

Selective Distribution

In order to ensure the prestige of our brand, we only distribute our products to select beauty salons, spas, perfumeries and stores that can offer their personnel in-depth training on our products so that they can provide our customers with the appropriate high-quality, customized advice they require.

Commitments and responsibilities

The Very Finest Ingredients
In order to ensure our products have the optimum effect on your skin, we are committed to using only:

  • organic, virgin, first cold-pressed plant oils
  • 100% pure and natural essential oils
  • algae and marine components harvested in line with their natural growth cycle

Similarly we have decided against the use of certain ingredients and guarantee products free from:

  • artificial colouring
  • alcohol
  • essential oils that have been synthetically reproduced or chemically modified

Respect for the skin’s physiological age
Conscious that the skin is a living organ that evolves over the course of one’s life, we have developed treatments that differ depending on one’s stage in life. This is why we offer products with varying cellular concentrations, that respond to the exact physiological age of the skin and its specific needs.

This is a first in the world of cosmetics.

Respect for the hormonal identity of male and female skin
Ever alert to the skin’s specific needs and striving to achieve the optimum effect, we have chosen to make a clear distinction between products formulated for women and those formulated for men. Given that the hormonal identity of male and female skin is not the same we have separated our products into two distinct lines:

Cellcosmet, the skin care line for women and Cellmen, the cellular skin care line specifically formulated for men. The cellular extracts in the men’s range are quite different to those selected for the Cellcosmet women’s line.

Products 100% Made in Switzerland
We strongly identify with Swiss standards and know-how. This is why we formulate, manufacture and package all our products in our Mont-sur-Lausanne premises in Switzerland. Also, as a member of SwissCos – The Association for the Protection of the Origin of Swiss Cosmetics – we can guarantee our customers that our products are “100% made in Switzerland“.

Our Priority:your total satisfaction
ISO 9001-2008 certified, we are committed to meeting the highest possible standards in terms of customer satisfaction and quality:

  • by showing our ability to repeatedly deliver a product in line with customer requirements.
  • by seeking to increase customer satisfaction through the effective application of the quality system and in particular, by putting in place a continual process of improvement.
