When we were founded 20 years ago, we wanted to give all women access to decorative cosmetics. To offer the development of a high-quality product in an appealing package at the lowest possible price - that was our goal, which we have consistently pursued ever since. Our mission? Make everyone feel more beautiful! We achieve this with our strong brands such as essence and CATRICE, which to this day shape and help shape the international cosmetics market in around 80 countries.
"My goal was to make all feel more beautiful with the help of make-up. And to achieve this, I wanted to offer high-quality and innovative cosmetic products at the best possible price-performance ratio. Democratize beauty, so to speak."
Christina Oster-Daum, founder and owner
20 years have passed since the foundation of cosnova and we look back on an incredible success story: What started in a dining room with 2 employees is now a global family business with around 700 employees - and we continue to grow. To celebrate 20 years of cosnova also means to celebrate all cosnovas! Therefore we have nominated “20 Faces of cosnova” representing all employees and reflecting our diversity in terms of departments, roles, countries, brands, positions, ages, cultures, working models - as diverse as cosnova.
In our efforts to become a little more sustainable every day, we also work with strong partners who are just as committed to the journey and with whom we can achieve our ambitious goals.
