CAREFULLY SELECTED, CAREFULLY DESELECTED
Finding the perfect blend of ingredients is an art. With more than 80 years of experience in our own laboratories, our skincare experts create effective products that work.
ACO is renowned in Scandinavia for its skincare expertise and has been pioneering clean beauty since 1939. We pride ourselves on exceeding some of the highest ingredient standards in the world to deliver safe, trusted products with carefully selected ingredients that naturally occur in your skin. ACO means authentic, simple and effective skincare tailored to your specific needs.
Our laboratory, where we research and develop new products, is located in Kista, a suburb of Stockholm. During product development, we evaluate ingredients not only for their function, effectiveness and safety for humans, but also for their impact on the environment. Our goal is to offer products that are good for you, the environment and our global community.
At ACO, we are proud of the simple and effective nature of our products. We offer carefully developed, clean and safe products where each ingredient serves a specific purpose. For us, high quality, clean skincare means using a few select ingredients that serve a clear function, without unnecessary additives that can cause irritation. To stay in balance with your skin, we know that what we choose to keep out of a formula is just as important as what we choose to put in.
Moreover, we've been animal-free for almost 40 years - no ACO brand product has been tested on animals since the early 1980s, and none of our current formulations have been tested on animals. We decided long ago to be at the forefront of positive change in the global beauty industry, and that includes our commitment to carefully selected materials, ingredient transparency and uncompromising safety standards.
