Verso Skincare

Our story & philosophy


Verso is a Swedish skincare brand launched in 2013 with a strong Scandinavian spirit – simple, minimalistic, and qualitative. We set out to start and lead a skincare revolution and are faithful to that mission. With science as a starting point, Verso makes high-quality products with a low ingredient count. No shortcuts are taken during the development to ensure that all products meet this requirement. Our headquarter is located in the center of a significant scientific-research environment, close to the University of Stockholm’s campus at Frescati. The proximity to the scientific community has been essential to Verso’s product development approach.


Verso exists to add a little ease to everyday life. We aim to provide an easy and convenient solution to skincare by offering essential, multifunctional products that effectively target the skin’s daily needs, promoting long-term skin beauty and health. Based on advanced science, each product is easy to use and makes you ready to meet your day in no time. 


At the very core of the brand and our mission is Vitamin A. One of Verso's most important basic philosophies is to use at least one Vitamin A product in every skincare routine. Verso aspires to be one of the top pioneers and industry leaders in the cosmetic field of Vitamin A. Our ambition is to develop effective and stable Vitamin A products based on a technology that is gentle to the skin without compromising on the result. With the unique Vitamin A complex Retinol 8 and our patented molecule NEAR 1, we believe we stand for premium skincare rooted in science.

- Lars Fredriksson, CEO & Founder of Verso Skincare

Everyone should use at least one Vitamin A product every day in their skincare routine.


New scientific insights about the rejuvenating properties of the unique vitamin A complex Retinol 8 propelled Verso into existence. By clinically testing Retinol 8 under the supervision of doctors from Karolinska University Hospital in the early 2010s, Verso´s founder Lars Fredriksson ensured that the Verso formulations delivered the expected efficacy and results that had been proven in other published studies.


To further pioneer Vitamin A, we developed NEAR 1, our very own patented molecule. NEAR 1 is the result of eight years of research and harnesses the essence of our philosophy – a science-first mindset – and our core ambition to offer skincare that provides visible results. NEAR 1 combines Vitamin A and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) in one impactful, versatile technology. Thus, a groundbreaking and self-evident complement to Retinol 8.

“NEAR 1 and Retinol 8 is a testament to Verso’s science-first approach and introduces a new standard of simplicity and efficiency in skincare.”  


We select ingredients with care and take no shortcuts when developing our products. Retinol 8 and NEAR 1 with other functional ingredients, such as Niacinamide, Turmeric, Oats, Hydrolyzed Yeast Extract, and Ceramides, help us keep a low ingredient count. Only high-quality ingredients with the proven ability to visibly rejuvenate the skin and maintain its beauty make the cut. The Verso range is gentle enough for everyday use, even on delicate skin. 


Verso was born out of the desire to provide effective, everyday-essential products that can smoothly be paired with personal favorites or used as stand-alone. Fundamental to our philosophy is a belief based on scientifically proven quality. In the Verso universe, quality equals longevity. Since day one, our goal has been to offer fresh products with clinically tested ingredients that promote the visible long-term improvement of all skin types. Thus, helping our customers to combine a healthy skincare routine with a busy, contemporary lifestyle by offering products that deliver performance without fuss.

One of Verso's most important basic philosophies is to use at least one Vitamin A product in every skincare routine. Besides Vitamin A, Verso offers several products with other result-driven ingredients such as niacinamide, Vitamin C, oats, and hydrolyzed yeast extract. All contribute to healthy-looking skin while supporting the visible results of Verso´s Vitamin A products.

Verso is Latin and means Reverse; at Verso, we want to help the skin turn back and function as it once did. We don´t wait for the latest breakthroughs and innovations - we create them!

“Firmly rooted in science, Verso is about everyday simplicity and quality of life.”
