QV Skincare is a true home-grown success story. Built on a foundation of hard work and innovative thinking, the gentle, scientific formulations of our brand have seen us rise from humble origins to become one of Australia’s favourite and most trusted skincare brands, for all types of skin.
QV Skincare began as the brainchild of Ego Pharmaceuticals (or simply Ego), founded in 1953 by young chemist Gerald Oppenheim and his wife, Rae, a nurse.
It was in response to a request from the dermatology ward of Melbourne’s iconic Queen Victoria Hospital that Gerald Oppenheim created a specialist skincare product that would later become known as QV Bath Oil – named in honour of the hospital.
Favoured for its gentle formula, QV Bath Oil became extremely popular. Three short years later it was made available in pharmacies, establishing the QV name in the minds (and hearts) of Australians looking for an answer to cleansing and moisturising sensitive skin.
QV Skincare's growing presence in the UK market not only signifies its commitment to improving the lives of individuals with sensitive skin but also underpins the brand's mission to promote overall skin wellness. As it continues to gain recognition and loyalty among consumers in the UK, QV Skincare is poised to become a cornerstone in the country's ever-evolving skincare landscape. Whether it's soothing dryness, addressing skin conditions, or simply maintaining a healthy complexion, QV Skincare is set to play an integral role in helping people across the UK achieve their skincare goals.
