History of Revlon

Revlon was founded in 1932, by Charles Revson and his brother Joseph, along with a chemist, Charles Lachman, who contributed the “L” in the REVLON name.

Starting with a single product – a nail enamel unlike any before it – the three founders pooled their meager resources and developed a unique manufacturing process. Using pigments instead of dyes, Revlon was able to offer to woman a rich-looking, opaque nail enamel in a wide variety of shades never before available.

In only six years the company became a multimillion dollar organization, launching what was to become one of the most recognized cosmetics names in America and around the world. © 2006 Revlon
