Merle Norman Cosmetics is celebrating 80 years. Founded in Los Angeles in 1931, Merle Norman Cosmetics is a leading brand of premium skin care, foundations and color cosmetic products. Its founder, Merle Nethercutt Norman, a true innovator, was one of the first women in cosmetics. She began the company with three basic products: Cleansing Cream, Miracol and Powder Base – her three steps to beauty. In addition to creating breakthrough products, she empowered other women to begin their own business through selling her cosmetic products. Today, Merle Norman Studios are located throughout the United States, Canada and in seven countries internationally. Still run by the Nethercutt family, the company is one of the few that continues to manufacture almost all of its products in the United States and upholds its founding mission: to provide quality products backed by a FULL satisfaction guarantee.
