The ACO skincare story is rooted in Sweden with a deep scientific heritage. Founded by the Apotekarsocieteten who sought a quality stamp for their skincare products originally developed and created in the pharmacies, the name ACO was chosen as an abbreviation of Apotekens Composita, meaning “the pharmacy’s mixture.”
Their journey of becoming leaders in Swedish skincare quickly turned into international expansion across Europe. ACO has evolved to now encompass a full line of cruelty-free products with carefully-selected ingredients to suit all skin types, in almost any climate. After successfully launching their German eCommerce store, they were ready or the next chapter in their story: US expansion.
Trellis worked hand in hand with ACO to internationalize the existing German Shopify experience over to the US market. Aside from the client being based overseas, internationalization projects come with inherent roadblocks like site translation, legal reviews, dynamic content updates, multi-currency payments, and systems integrations across multiple continents.
