Story

Ronny Froehlich graduated from the University of Applied Science in Bremen, Germany, in 2008. He attended an international management study program specialized in the Arab markets and went on to work in corporate management in several countries, including Equatorial Guinea, Tanzania, Cairo, and the UAE. At a stopover in Germany, he had the business idea of founding a platform for beauty products in Saudi Arabia. He founded the company in 2014 with Malik Al-Shehab. The startup has offices in Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Jordan but sells and ships its products in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia until a further expansion.
The company announced closing a Series A round with an undisclosed amount, led by Saudi Aramco, Entrepreneur Venture, and Equitrust, the Chicago-based insurance company, along with Wamda Capital and Raed Ventures in December 2017.
