The Communication department is divided into three areas of activity: Brand Communication, Public Relations and Social Communication.

In Brand Communication, we are responsible for the communicative brand management and for increasing global brand awareness.
The development of campaigns including the media strategy as well as co-operations and other sales promotion measures form part of our daily work.
The design of the homepages for our brands also falls into our area of responsibility.

In Public Relations, the tasks include the international development and management of all PR measures for our three brands and their respective products in close collaboration with our partners in over 50 countries. Beyond this, we maintain close contact with the trade press and ensure that it is always informed about the latest developments in our company.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest or Instagram: our Social Communication Team handles the strategic focus of our brands, the daily implementation of marketing measures in each of the channels and the subsequent dialog with our customers. Another important part of our work is our contact and interaction with beauty bloggers who regularly test and evaluate our products.


The modern, colorful design of our offices is sure to make you feel at ease in your workplace.
