Established in 1979, SOGLIO refines natural alpine resources in Bregaglia in South Grisonsto produce unique personal care products of the highest quality
1979, Walter Hunkeler, a chemical lab technician with experience in microbiological research, installed a laboratory in his residential house in Soglio. There he experimented with goat butter, which he and his wife processed to a rheumatic ointment and a massage balm. While the first dispatches were run through acquaintances and valley visitors, their products were soon introduced into the first shops. During this time, Hunkeler met Martin Ermatinger, a business economist, who worked for the financial administration of the Canton of Thurgau and was interested for the economic development of the Alpine area, and who dreamt of building something of his own in the mountains.
Meanwhile – after 40 years of production and experience – they count over 50 products in their range. The STONE perfumes, the prominent stone bottles for perfumes and eau de cologne that are manufactured by a stonecutter from Castasegna, are an additional specialty of the enterprise.
