The first iteration of the Ewald company was started in Germany in the 1940s by the current Managing Director’s grandfather, Robert Schmidt. The company was founded and still has its headquarters in the beautiful and historic state of Thuringia right in the heart of the German countryside.
Back then, Herr Schmidt was fascinated by nature. The company’s first product was a “flower water” hair tonic. Over the years, the company gradually grew and developed its range of hair care and cosmetics products. It has however always stayed true to its roots.
After a brief partnership with the multinational Wella AG in the 1990s, Gebruder Ewald GmbH is now 100% in family ownership. It moved into its current premises in Nahetal-Waldau in 1998. The site comprises 9000 square metres and is complete with its own ultra-modern R&D facilities.
