The desire for natural skincare products started in the late 1970s when people began to question the safety of chemicals used in personal care offerings. San Diego native Jean Shea, BIOTONE founder, and president joined this natural focus with her large mixing pot and a homemade mixer. Starting in her home, she created her first product, Chamomile Moisture Lotion, which she sold through health food stores.


As her business grew, she moved to a small office in the same neighborhood as a massage school. When the school director asked if she could formulate massage products for the school, BIOTONE was born. BIOTONE grew from making one massage oil to making hundreds of products for therapists in health, wellness, and medical clinics throughout the United States and abroad.


Today, BIOTONE provides a full line of quality massage oils, cremes, lotions, gels, and professional spa body and body care products. The original company commitment has stayed the same: to develop products that are innovative and quality-driven. The company has maintained its industry-leading position by providing products to meet massage therapists and estheticians and their clients' varied preferences. The same commitment to making the first product goes into making every product produced by BIOTONE.

"The values set decades ago still exist today—to provide products with the highest quality used by professionals and those they serve."
