DALLAS, TX (January 22, 2020) – Blow out the pink candles and make a wish—in 2020, Mary Kay Inc. will celebrate milestone anniversaries in some of its most important markets around the globe. The iconic Mary Kay Ash, with humble roots in small town, Texas, founded her namesake brand in 1963. The brand quickly developed into a worldwide phenomenon with millions of independent beauty consultants in nearly 40 countries. While beauty trends come and go, Mary Kay owes its staying power to something that never goes out of style: female empowerment and a greater purpose to do good.

“While our innovative skin care, on-trend color cosmetics, fragrances and body care products have been loved for more than 56 years by millions of consumers around the world, our company was founded with much more than lipstick in mind,” said Deborah Gibbins, Chief Operating Officer at Mary Kay. “Our founder, Mary Kay Ash, built her dream company with two goals: create economic independence for women through entrepreneurship, and make the world a better place.”

Like a freshly waxed pink Cadillac, Mary Kay Ash’s original vision continues to shine. Her proven business model has helped countless women develop or refine their entrepreneurship acumen through a values-based company with staying power.
