About the brand Piz Buin
On a skiing holiday, in the city, or at the beach – the top-quality Piz Buin products will give your skin reliable protection from UV rays wherever you are.
The brand was named after the Piz Buin mountain that reaches the altitude of 3,312m on the border between Austria and Switzerland. It was this Alpine mountain that the chemistry student Franz Geiter climbed in 1938, and got sunburnt in the process. This unpleasant experience was his impulse to start developing cosmetic products with sun protection. And so, one of the first sunscreens in the world, the Piz Buin Gletscher Creme, was born in 1946.
Not long after that, Franz Greiter developed the sun protection factor as we now know it, followed by other Piz Buin products resistant to UV light, water, and other factors unfavourable to the skin.
Today, Piz Buin sun care is one of the best known brands in the field. Their portfolio includes sunblock creams, lotions, and oils to help you fully enjoy your time out in the sunshine without risk, as well as after-sun products.
