Procter and Gamble Cosmetics and Impala are partnering in the design and distribution of Impala's beauty products under the Iman and I-Iman trademarks in six global markets around the world.
"This is a strategic next step in the evolution of the Iman brands and what I offer women with skin of color around the world," said founder Iman. "I look forward to working with Marc Pritchard and the Procter and Gamble team to grow our retail presence, while staying true to my customers and their unique beauty needs."
"We're thrilled to partner with Iman, an innovative leader in creating the beauty products designed for women with skin of color," said Marc Pritchard, President Procter and Gamble Global Cosmetics and Hair Colorants. "Iman and I-Iman nicely complement our existing portfolio of global cosmetics brands and will help us serve even more women by providing them with products to help make them look and feel beautiful."
Iman, the famous beauty and legendary model, founded Iman Cosmetics in 1994 after a sixteen-year career as a top runway and print star. "I could never find exactly what I needed for my own make-up," says Iman, "and that's why I started the company. With Procter and Gamble, I can now offer my products to the global, multi-cultural, multi-racial woman that is my customer." During her career, Iman graced the covers of major fashion and beauty magazines worldwide and was the muse for many top fashion designers. Today, the Iman and I-Iman product lines are available in six global markets around the world, providing women with skin of color cosmetics and skin care products specifically designed to meet their unique beauty needs.
