SKEYNDOR was created in the 60s, when Publio Puente, Doctor in Chemical Sciences and Juan Morcillo, Industrial Engineer, bothlecturers at the High School of Industrial Engineering in Terrassa, founded a hair removal wax business in their home town. Immediately the first network of beauty therapists is established as the main clients of the new company. Morcillo, born in Paris, knew the importance of the cosmetic industry and brought the firm a business and managerial vision, while Puente was in charge of the research laboratory and product development.

In the 70s, SKEYNDOR extended its services all over Spain, with a wide range of products and introduced new more attractive and practical professional packaging. The culmination of the firm’s national expansion stage was the opening of a branch office in Madrid in 1980. This expansion was completed with the opening of Training Centres for professionals in Barcelona and Madrid, in the middle of the 90s.

During the years 1987 and 1988 SKEYNDOR launched the liposomes on the professional market; these were the first formula of encapsulating active ingredients that minimised the risk of allergies or irritations, as it only releases the active ingredient when it is inside the dermis. It soon became a success and today this technology has evolved into nanotechnology, one of the scientific basis of current SKEYNDOR research.

Today Through its more than 20 product lines focused on every kind of professional aesthetics treatment, SKEYNDOR is one of the pioneering R+D+I firms in the current market. 

Thanks to the commitment of its staff of more than 90 people, on a day-to-day basis, the SKEYNDOR beauty programs can be used as a working method by the more than 15,000 Aestheticians from Canada to New Zealand.
