Founding

Amoena's path began with: Cornelius Rechenberg. His goal was to find a better solution for women after breast cancer surgery than the makeshift aids made of fabric or rubber that were available at the time. A breast form should feel as natural as possible. He was the first to experiment with the soft material silicone, which closely resembles the movement and behaviour of the natural breast. He produced the first foil-covered silicone breast form and in turn, set the standard in breast care that is still valid today.
