The PHYTO5 skincare range is made in Switzerland at Laboratoire Gibro S.A and distributed by us in the UK. Our founder Carmela Rosbottom is a holistic beauty therapist, experienced salon owner and trainer with 25 years experience in the industry.
PHYTO5 is new to the UK but has been established for four decades around the world. PHYTO5 has been a pioneer in using natural ingredients and essential oils of the hightest quality to create exceptional skincare products with vital energy balancing properties. We discovered PHYTO5 when looking for a new skincare range and were immediately struck by the energetic skincare philosophy and the excellence of the face, scalp, hair and body products which abound with natural ingredients such as clay, algae, plankton, trace minerals and essential oils.
They soothe and renew at skin and body level yet also rebalance and replenish the inner flow of energy – because the body is more than just matter, it is also “vital energy”.
PHYTO5 products are based on the 5 elements of traditional Chinese medicine – wood, fire, earth, metal and water – and are designed to restore and maintain the body’s holistic balance of nature. They are also in harmony with the energy of each season.
We have developed a range of relaxing and therapeutic face and body treatments, combining the PHYTO5 skincare range with techniques to enhance the natural flow of energy such as lymphatic drainage and light therapy.
UK beauty therapists and salons wishing to offer the PHYTO5 experience benefit from specially tailored training and start up packages. There is something for everyone, regardless of experience. At the basic level PHYTO5 is quick and easy to prescribe and use, yet the method and approach also offers the opportunity to build expertise and offer clients more complex, holistic treatments.

We believe PHYTO5 is the most cutting edge way of working with the skin today whilst still being wholly natural and non-invasive.
We decided to bring the skincare range to the UK following two years extensive research and several visits to Laboratoire Gibro S.A. in the Swiss mountains to meet with the directors, Head Chemist Jean-Daniel Bartl, and staff - a passionate, dedicated and enthusiastic team. A perfect match for us and for you.
The products are made in our own laboratory, Gibro S.A. Switzerland using pure Swiss mountain water. Gibro has a 35 year pedigree of research and development and was certified an organic manufacturer by Ecocert and Cosmebio in 2007 as manufacturer of organic certified products and ecologically-minded manufacturing practices. Certified organic products called BIO in Europe display the logo of their certification agency. You can view our organic cosmetics range of products in the Phyto-Bio-Ceuticals section.
Our energetic products can be found in 20 countries across 5 continents. Below are just some of the 4 and 5 star hotels and spas that use the PHYTO5 range:
