Areas of Business and Major Brands

The KOSÉ Group focuses mainly on the manufacturing and marketing of cosmetics. Its strength lies in its unique and high-value exclusive cosmetics. Our policy is to offer original and valuable products in all of our brand categories, particularly in the high-prestige and prestige brands, which are characterized by high added value, as well as the cosmetaries* brands, which offer inexpensive and affordable products, mainly in the self-service category.
