A different kind of company

1967 - The first product range
Initially consisting of skin creams, lipstick and mascara—all the skin care products were based on herb and plant extracts from Sweden. Our founders insisted on not testing any products on animals – a pioneering thought at the time.
1970 - Innovative selling methods
Instead of at-home parties, we tried new ways and focused more on catalogue and one-to-one selling. In August 1970, we printed our very first Oriflame catalogue, with 1000 copies in total.
1970s - Tender Care launches
First sold as an eye cream, Tender Care soon became renowned for its fantastic soothing and moisturising properties on dry skin. It’s now our biggest seller, with over 40 million units sold!
1982 - London Stock Exchange
Oriflame is listed on the London Stock Exchange, the first foreign company to do so since World War II.
