Etos is a company with almost 100 years of experience in personal care, offering solutions to customers in health and beauty care.

Philips wanted a better and healthier life for its employees. Therefore the store was led by the passionate nurse Johanna Kleinod, together with a whole team of nurses. Their medical expertise was an important part of Etos’ service, combined with the qualitative products for more affordable prices. In 1931, the company was privatized and took on its current name.
