The Swiss Cosmetic and Detergent Association (SKW) is the leading national association of the cosmetics, detergent and cleaning products industry. The around 100 members it represents achieve domestic sales of about CHF 3.0 billion (consumer prices) and CHF 2.0 billion in export.

[Translate to English:] Dr. Nathalie Berclaz

«For a technical specialist like me, the SKW is a valuable platform for interaction - in particular for industry-specific issues. In addition, the SKW is a mouthpiece for the industry among actors such as authorities and media.»
