The FORTE Story

The word ' FORTE ' originates from the French word ‘Fort’, conveying the meaning of excellence, strength, specialty and experience, therefore this word was chosen because it demonstrates the commitment of Formosa Biomedical Technology Corp in ' Striving to be the Best. ' FORTE 's roots can be traced back to 1996 when Mr. Yung-Ching Wang, Formosa Plastics Group Founder prepared a business trip to Mainland China.

He asked his daughter Ms Reyu Wang (present Chairman of Formosa Biomedical Technology Corp) whether there was a moisturizing product he could use to prevent dry and chapped skin caused by the severe cold weather.

Back then, the staff of the Detergent Division of Formosa Chemicals and Fiber Corp. (formerly led by Ms Wang) created an enriched nutrition gel to maintain the skin's moisture and enhance metabolism for Founder Wang.

After consistently using the gel, Founder Wang was surprised to find his skin became very smooth and even his easily dehydrated cheeks looked and felt soft; he highly praised the gel's effects, and with this, the gel triggered the Formosa Plastic Group to enter the skincare and cosmetics industry. A few years later the brand FORTE was founded, and to this day continues to demonstrate Formosa Plastic Group's resolution to succeed in the skincare and biomedicine markets.

The Beginning

In 1999 Chairman Reyu Wang started to gather together abundant manufacturing, medical and academic resources within the corporation to establish Formosa Biomedical Technology Research and Development Center. Building upon years of production and R&D experience, Ms. Wang also invited highly respected clinical experts to join the R&D team, including renowned doctors from the departments of dermatology, plastic surgery and traditional Chinese medicine in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital; as well as PhD leveled researchers from Chang Gung University ( College of Medicine, Graduate Institute of Biochemical and Biomedical Engineering and Graduate Institute of Natural Products ), Mingchi University of Technology and Chang Gung Institute of Technology as well as a leading team of dermatologists from Chang Gung hospital.

With an intensive study of plants, extensive development of biotechnology and abundant dermatological experience from Chang Gung University, Mingchi University of Technology and Chang Gung Institute of Technology, the Formosa Biomedical Technology Research and Development Center was founded; and this with collective wisdom including manufacturing, medical and academic elites FORTE was born in 2003. FORTE offers cutting edge research and scientific expertise - two factors which make us the industry leader in Taiwan and we are committed to achieving new milestones in the skincare market in Taiwan.
