ABOUT MERLE NORMAN
Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Merle Norman Cosmetics develops, manufactures and distributes its own full line of skin care and cosmetic products. These cosmetics are sold through independently owned and operated Merle Norman Cosmetic Studios in the United States and Canada. Merle Norman also offers easy and affordable franchising opportunities.
85 years ago, Merle Norman formulated products to address the beauty needs of women—and empowered many to become successful entrepreneurs who owned their own Studios. Today, Merle Norman’s vision carries on under the leadership of her great nephew, Jack Nethercutt (pictured at right), with hundreds of innovative skin care and cosmetic products that are available exclusively at independently
owned Merle Norman Studios.
Merle Norman ensures optimum quality control by researching, developing, manufacturing, and packaging its own products. We take pride in our pioneering efforts that optimize each product benefit—from advanced formulas to state-of-the-art packaging technology.
Safety of our consumers is our highest priority. We utilize the latest advances in non-animal safety testing and human volunteer testing to deliver products of the highest safety and quality to our consumers. We do not test our products or ingredients on animals, or ask others to test on our behalf.WHO WE ARE
