Sebamed was established by Heinz Maurer (1921-2016) in 1957. Since 1971 the Sebamed products are exported to over 70 countries. The headquarters of Sebapharma located in Boppard town district Salzig. Before Sebamed, Dr. Maurer worked in the dermatological department of the University Clinic Bonn in Germany and was in charge of patients suffering from acute eczema. Patients under Dr. Maurer’s care were forbidden to wash with soap because soap destroys therapeutic efforts of doctors treating eczema. Dr. Maurer and his ward physician ended up carrying out an unauthorized experiment to wash his patients without using any soap but instead using an acid tenside. The results showed that the acid tensides dissolved all the ointments and crusting of eczema and left affected skin free of irritation, kept the areas dry, and also made the skin receptive to further treatment. Sebamed products have been included in over 150 scientific studies to support the brand’s formulations and are recognized by dermatologists, pharmacists, drugstores and consumers throughout the world. Since 1971, Sebamed products are now distributed in more than 80 countries. Sebamed’s corporate philosophy is “Science for healthy skin.”  In April 2009, Sebamed won a trademark lawsuit in Indonesia against a local businessman, prohibiting the use of the name Seba Human skin has a natural hydro lipid barrier, known as an acid mantle, which works to retain moisture and lipids while simultaneously blocking germs, toxins, bacteria and other outside factors. The acid mantle has a pH of 5.5. Problematic skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and rosacea, have impaired barrier functions and can have a pH different than 5.5. The acid mantle serves as a natural skin barrier and protects the skin from dehydration and environmental damage. The pH of the acid mantle is 5.5, and traditional soap, which has a pH greater than 9, can strip this protective barrier. Dr.Maurer first discovered that eczema patients are intolerant to soap-based products because they have an impaired acid mantle. At the time of his discovery, eczema patients were told to have bathing prohibitions or not to wash frequently. By pioneering the first soap-free cleansing bar, Dr.Maurer showed that eczema patients can wash regularly without affecting the acid mantle. All Sebamed products have a pH of 5.5 to maintain the skin’s natural barrier.
