A bit more information about Estee Lauder
Estée Lauder Companies, Inc. is a manufacturer and marketer of prestige
skincare, makeup, fragrance and hair care products. The company has its
headquarters in Midtown Manhattan, New York City
The company began in 1946 when Joseph Lauder and his wife Estée Lauder
began producing cosmetics in New York City. They first carried only four
products: Super-Rich All Purpose Creme, Creme Pack, Cleansing Oil and Skin
Lotion. Two years later they established their first department store account
with Saks Fifth Avenue in New York.
Over the next fifteen years they expanded the range and continued to sell
their products in the United States. In 1960 the company started its first
international account in the London department store Harrods. The following
year it opened an office in Hong Kong.
In 1964 they started Aramis Inc., which produced fragrances and grooming
products for men. In 1967 Estée Lauder herself was named one of ten
Outstanding Women in Business in the United States by business and financial
editors. This was followed by a Spirit of Achievement
Award from Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University in 1968.
In that year the company expanded again, opening Clinique Laboratories, Inc.
Clinique was the first dermatologist guided (Dr. Norman Orentreich), allergy
tested, fragrance free cosmetic brand created by Estée Lauder.
Estée Lauder's Clinique brand became the first women's cosmetic company to
introduce a second line for men when, in 1976, they began a separate line
called "Skin Supplies for Men". In 1981 the company's products became
available in the Soviet Union.
