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.
