Founded in 1971 by Zvi Ryzman, American International Industries (AII) reached a milestone birthday this year—its 40th. Today it boasts 800 employees worldwide, and is among the leading manufacturers and global distributors of innovative, beauty and skin care products for men and women. In fact, the privately-held Los Angeles-based firm sells products in 180 countries and manufactures 61,000,000 beauty products a year.


The company continues to grow through acquisitions and most recently brought under its brand umbrella two additional nail brands, Poshé, from Almell Products, and It’s So Easy, a line of nail art accessories, products and tools.


This summer, AII’s popular China Glaze brand is rolling out six new Crackle Glaze Polishes in sparkling metallics. The China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metals collection features six sparkling metallic colors including Tarnished Gold, Platinum Pieces, Haute Metal, Cracked Medallion, Latticed Lilac and Oxidized Aqua.
