From a humble kitchen in California over 80 years ago, Merle Norman Cosmetics started as, and continues to be, an American company. Founded by an American- born woman who paved the way for female entrepreneurship, we are a family run bussiness. We continue to employ nearly 500 U.S. workers to reaserch, develop, manufacture and package our own line of products at our headquarters in Los Angeles, CA.
We take pride in developing high-quality skin care products, one of the broadest lines of foundations and a fashionable range of color. Our products are evaluated for irritants and allergens using clinical testing under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist and /or Board Certified Ophthalmologist. We do not test on animals or ask others to conduct animal testing on our behalf.
We are proud that our formulas are made right here in the USA, along with virtually every compact, jar, bottle and tube in which our great products are packaged.
