The story of Ghandour Cosmetics began with the shared vision of 3 Ghandour brothers to establish a cosmetic company that provides quality and affordable products dedicated to African beauty. Stationed in different countries, they embarked on a search across West Africa for a hub to operate from. Ghana was the last country they visited in 1995 and aside from being favorable, welcoming, and safe, it instinctively felt like home.
Driven by passion and determination, the brothers combined their knowledge and experience in the cosmetic industry to begin operations in early 1997, creating iconic products such as Cynthia and La Perla.
Ghandour Cosmetics was instrumental in driving affinity for Made-in-Ghana cosmetic products between 1997-1999, when it was unpopular and till today uses the tag line “Proudly Ghanaian”.
From humble beginnings, in a small 600sqm space at North Industrial Area in Accra, Ghana, Ghandour Cosmetics has built a formidable brand that instills confidence that radiates African beauty.
Ghandour Cosmetics has a total of 600 staff. Our culture and values are centered around customer satisfaction and delivering on our promise of providing quality and affordability. Our people thrive on honesty, discipline, hard work, teamwork, and consistent training to drive creativity and improvement in ourselves, our operations and technology.
