Peter Yip, a great esthete from an important Hong Kong family, grew up surrounded by art.   Since early childhood, Peter Yip grew familiar with the beauty of women by admiring the paintings of his father, the artist, Mr. Ping-Sum Yip. Their perfect harmony made him dream about eternal youth. As a result, he became interested in cosmetology.


Peter Yip had been living in Switzerland for more than forty years, and during this time he had won renown in the cosmetics world by establishing prestigious Swiss brands all over the continent of Asia. Passionately intrigued by the thousand-year old properties of traditional Chinese plants and fascinated by the wealth of flora that surrounded him in Switzerland; he was driven by a holistic notion: a global, total approach to beauty and youth.

“If only we could create the antidote to skin aging,” he often thought.  

A synergetic bridge between science and nature.  We would call it Bellefontaine, the spring left unaffected by time.”

And like a true visionary, he endeavored to conquer the anti-aging Holy Grail, by combining the most precious plants and their rarest essences.
He made an  investment in Swiss laboratories that housed the newest and most cutting edge technologies which enabled him to undertake long and ultra-sophisticated research programs.  This was what gave rise to EDELGEN® complex, an exceptional antioxidant and soothing formula that is contained in all Bellefontaine cosmetics.

“In Asian Medicine, to avoid illness
we stregthen the immune system”
