History

United Technologies UT AG was founded in 2007 as an R&D company by a group of enthusiasts with top scientific and business experience in Zurich, Switzerland. The activity of United Technologies UT AG focused initially on the development of interleukin-1 alpha (Dermatopoietin) and Hexadeltine, an enkephalin-analogue, as cosmetic ingredients for skin and hair care.

In 2008 United Cosmeceuticals GmbH was founded as a pure marketing and distribution company.

In 2009 and 2010 the cosmetic product lines EVEN of Switzerland and DermatoPoietin were launched, respectively.

In 2013 United Technologies UT AG and United Cosmeceuticals GmbH were restructured: The former is run today as holding company while the latter is responsible as operative company for the entire process value chain from research and development to marketing and sales. In the same year the above mentioned product lines were replaced by EVENSWISS, a premium cosmetic product line focusing on skin and hair rejuvenation. EVENSWISS is based on the Dermatopoietin technology.

Mission

We at United Technologies UT AG are driven by the passion to facilitate the development and marketing of highly innovative and effective cosmetic products on the basis of a deep understanding of the physiological mechanisms of skin renewal.
