Our Heritage

1924 — 2017

93 years of sensitive skin expertise in France

At the beginning of the 1920s, in the outskirts of Paris, in Boulogne, a young and innovative French pharmacist by the name Dr Roger opened his very own pharmacy. A traditional apothecary, his expertise and passion was mixing active ingredients to create ointments that would help soothe a number of skin irritations.

At the time, Boulogne was known as the centre of Parisian launderettes - all the laundry  of the wealthy Parisians was hand-washed here by young women, who were among the very first generation of working women in France.

The never-ending routine of washing stripped the natural beauty of their hands, leaving behind dry, cracked, fragile skin. They came into Dr. Roger’s pharmacy, hoping for a soothing ointment that could help.

Dr. Roger used his expertise of mixing active ingredients and prepared a caring ointment for severely dry, rough hands. He used a special mixing technique in his laboratory to blend cream with traditional apothecary ingredients. This special mixing technique then gave the brand its centennial name: Mixa.

Soon, Dr. Roger’s hand ointment became famous and Mixa laboratories went into large-scale production.
