We think beauty shouldn't be a question of money – and it should be fun! That's why Christina Oster-Daum and Javier González founded cosnova: We develop beauty products of the best possible quality at the lowest possible price. To us, this represents the democratization of beauty. It also means respecting the planet by working in the most sustainable and resource-efficient way possible. To this day, we are a family business characterized by flat hierarchies and fast decision-making processes. Even though we have grown significantly, we still work together hand in hand in pursuit of success – based on trust, with the courage to take risks and the desire to try something new! We all follow the guiding principle of High Performance & People Focus: We put people at the heart of our daily activities, react flexibly to changes, constantly strive to improve and always do our very best. And all of this happens with a lot of joy, energy and mutual support. Just like in a real family.
“We don’t see our employees as resources, but as human beings who have helped us achieve a lot and with whom we still want to achieve a whole lot more. We work together on a basis of courage and trust, successfully changing many things that were once considered the norm in our industry.”
*Christine Fink, Director People & Organization
