Inglot Cosmetics started as a chemical producer and within only a few years, taking advantage of the changing political situation in Poland, the company became a large cosmetics manufacturer with a presence at all major beauty gatherings and events around the globe.
Within 20 years Inglot expanded rapidly and established its presence on six continents, in more than 57 countries. Its growth strategy relies solely on a franchise model. At present, Inglot is a record-setter among Polish firms selling abroad. Its breathable nail polish formula, called O2M, became a surprise hit with Muslim women.
