Gilda Story

Gilda Cosmetic has a proven and long history in high quality products for total skin care. Gilda Cosmetic is a family business founded in 1988 by Gilda Liljeblad in Gothenburg, Sweden. With her in-depth knowledge as a beauty therapist she wanted to develop high quality skin care products to really improve the quality and results of skin care treatments.Since Gilda was a child, her life mission has been to take care of people. She has always enjoyed giving and “tweaking and tinkering”. Initially she was thinking of becoming a doctor but chose her own path in the in the early 70’s, a time when beauty and glamor were not discussed in the news. She went to Vienna where she trained as an esthetician. Throughout that time, she was focused on taking care of others, make them feel and look better and to be happy with themselves.
Gilda operated several salons on her own, including the prestigious Salon Gripsholm at Hotel Park Avenue in Gothenburg, Sweden. But it was not easy to work as a skin therapist in a salon at that time. The skin care brands had a huge variety of different products and that often meant that you had to purchase expensive complete ranges to get the effect that you wanted. Gilda therefore wanted to develop a small skin care line with good, active ingredients. At that time she met a man who gave her just such an opportunity, to produce her own product series in his factory outside of Gothenburg. The journey from there was a long and tough path to walk but she managed it. Today, Gilda’s own skin care brand Gilda is sold in her three beauty schools and all over Sweden.
Over the years Gilda Cosmetic has produced and further developed her skin care products with continuously proven high quality results and we have built up a complete product line for total skin care.Today we are very ambitious to sell our skin care line internationally. If you are interested to become a distributor, we are looking for new partners to sell our products outside of Sweden. If you want to be a part of our history, consider becoming our distributor.
