Watch Kolmar in action
Part of the KDC/ONE network since 2015, Kolmar is internationally respected as an expert in the innovation, formulation, manufacturing, and filling of color cosmetics and skincare products.
In 1921, Lessing L. Kole recognized women’s growing interest in cosmetics and resolved to serve their needs better. He partnered with Mr. Marsek, Chief Manufacturing Chemist at Palmolive, and together they founded Kolmar.
Driven by innovation for the last 97 years, Kolmar has patented many processes, from the industry standard of delivering beautiful pressed powder in a pan to developing a processing method producing never before offered smooth and silky powder textures with even color distribution. Kolmar’s commitment to award-winning product and process innovation remains a vital part of our company to this day.
Kolmar’s extensive portfolio of formulations can be launched as is or modified to meet your brand’s unique needs. We work with our customers to deliver the most on-trend, fashion-forward products, ranging from full-coverage to barely-there color cosmetics; the silkiest eyeshadows to runway-ready mascara; hints of color to full-color lip textures; and indulgent products for skincare, bath, body, and spa to luxurious cleansing, conditioning, and styling products for hair.
