Our Story

Through the years the HanSen company evolved from a small enterprise trading arts and crafts to an international company in the cosmetics industry.

A look back at the company’s history, the love of the product and the road of endurance:




Hans-Georg Sengseis founded the HanSen Kunsthandwerk GmbH company

in Bad Ischl, Austria.

In the beginning the focus was solely on the sale of floral arrangements of dried and artificial flowers.



The brand Ovis was born.

Initially the sheep milk soap was available only in ten shapes and one fragrance.






Ovis moved into the newly built house in Seeham / Salzburg, Austria.




Ovis went online.

For the first time customers could place their orders in the web shop.







The year of the 25th anniversary.
