It started in 1988, when a small company was formed to import cosmetics from Europe. The cosmetics were made with Shea Butter. In 1994 the import of cosmetics gave birth to a local manufacturing unit in Woodridge, NY. and KRISMARK was born. Krismark has used Shea Butter as a base and added other exotic oils such as Palm Oil. We continue to use organic ingredients and other essential oils without mineral oil or petrolatum. We continue to scout the remnants of the rainforest in Africa, looking for other plants beneficial to us and through our R&D team, roll out products.
We have sold to The Cosmetics Center, Cosmetics Plus, Rickys NYC, Cambridge Chemists and continue to sell to Hair salons, Pharmacies and cosmetics stores. We sell online through this site as well as other major online retailers such as Amazon. We also work with women cooperatives in Northern Ghana who pick shea nuts to central processing centers.
We have supported the arts, sponsored a band at Summerstage NYC. We will do it again when the opportunity comes. We also plan to support initiatives to stem the destruction of the African rainforest occurring quietly at an alarming rate because the timber trade is a big industry supported by The Big men. Rome was not built in a day, and KRISMARK will continue to build and grow. We count on your support. Thanks.
