Revlon Cosmetics, Fragrances and Skin Care
Revlon was founded in 1932, by Charles Revson and his brother Joseph, along with a chemist, Charles Lachman, who contributed the "L" in the REVLON name. Starting with a single product - a nail enamel unlike any before it - the three founders pooled their meager resources and developed a unique manufacturing process.
In the 1990's, Revlon revitalized its cosmetics business and strengthened its industry leadership role. Revlon introduced the first transfer resistant lipcolor which led to a full ColorStayTM Collection of transfer-resistant products. The company closed the gap on its closest competitors and reached a dramatic goal - the #1 brand in mass color cosmetics
