Colonial Dámes Co., Ltd. was established more than a century ago by descendents of Colonial Virginia Governor Henry Wise. It is believed to be the oldest skin care and cosmetics company in the country.
Founded in 1886 in San Francisco, known at the time as the notorious "Barbary Coast." Founder Marietta Bosworth was a stage actress who realized there was a need for quality cosmetics in the wild and woolly West. As word of her skin care products spread, her clientele quickly grew from the thespian set to the public at large.
With a background in the entertainment industry, it was only natural for Colonial Dámes to move its headquarters to Los Angeles, where the company became a fixture on the Hollywood scene.
Colonial Dámes cosmetics were popular among starlets as well as prop men, who placed the elegant products in numerous movies and television shows, ranging from the 1936 Three Stooges comedy "Slippery Silks" to a recent episode of "Frasier."
Over more than a century of operation, this quiet, highly respected company has steadily built unrivalled stature as the leader in scientific development of effective, naturally pure, affordable skin care products.
Owned and operated by the same family for four generations, Colonial Dámes continues its recognized leadership in the war against aging skin with the most remarkably effective rejuvenation products ever developed.
