So today we are totally geeking out to find who actually owns your favorite cosmetics & beauty brands! If you don’t already know, cosmetics come from about 4 major companies & factories. Now there are independently owned companies too. But the majority is that, most brands are owned by larger companies…
This idea to post this came because, I was in utter shock when I found out that Korres beauty is owned by Johnson & Johnson! The company who makes baby oil. (At least that’s how I remember the company) at least Johnson & Johnson is family run, not all companies are, so that’s good in my book! But I still question why I am paying $20+ for a facial cleanser when it’s owned by a company such as Johnson & Johnson. That’s just my opinion though.
So here we are geeking out and figuring out which beauty lines come from which company! Obviously, I haven’t researched all of the cosmetics brands , but I searched out several! So here you are! And I might add, if you are the least bit curious as to know as I was, google: who owns (blank) brand ? Fill in the blank obviously with which brand you want.
Bumble & bumble
Bare minerals: Bare Escentuals: Buxom
Yves saint Laurent
Ralph Lauren fragrances
NYC New York Color
Nicole by OPI
And independently owned:
So there you have it! A lot of brands are owned by others, and I’m sure I’ll be surprised the next time I pick up and read a product to see who owns it! I encourage you to research who owns what, and you never know you may just get a history lesson out of it and learn a thing or two!
Thanks so much for reading! And If you know of any more brands that are independently owned or company owned PLEASE leave a comment below I’d love to hear about it!
