Our story over time

Dermacol, an original Czech brand, was started in the Barrandov Film Studios in 1966.

Soon, film studio experts teamed with dermatologists from the Medical Cosmetics Institute in Prague.

The joint efforts of cosmetic specialists, who based their trade on medical principles, and film make-up experts were very successful. 55 years ago, Dermacol Make-up Cover, the first Dermacol product, which has brought the brand international recognition and is still highly valued, was created as the first foundation of its kind in Europe and one of the first in the world.

The license for this foundation was eventually sold to Hollywood in 1969.

Olga Knoblochová, the founder of Dermacol, remembers how it all began:

“In 1965, a mother with a child came to our institute. The child had a large port-wine stain and white non-pigmented spots. We did not have laser at that time, so how were we supposed to cover the spots?” recalls Olga.

“We turned to Mr. Boublík, who at that time was the head of the laboratory for the development and manufacturing of film make-up products in the Barrandov Film Studios. He actually started researching the issue and after many trials, a clinically tested high-coverage make-up, Dermacol Make-Up Cover, was developed one year later. It was available in ten different shades at that time. The product’s name came about logically – it is applied to the skin (derma) and stains it (color), which gave rise to Dermacol. The name became so widely known that it started to be identified with foundation. I am happy that I witnessed the birth of the brand and later the entire Dermacol company.”


One of the most vivid memories of Olga Knoblochová, the founder of Dermacol:

“At a dermatologic congress held in 1967, I was demonstrating how to cover a large nevus (mole) on the face of a 20-year old medical student.

The student saw herself in the mirror without this skin defect for the first time ever in her life. She burst into tears of surprise and joy. I used this product myself to cover freckles, which were not in style at that time.”
