In the early 1930's, cosmetics were thick and weighed heavily on the face. Professional chemist, Alfred May decided to design light non-irritant makeup for his wife, Fanny. As a result, Almay was officially established in 1931. In 1989, the Revlon International Corporation became Almay's new owner. Today, Almay's gentle cosmetics are used by women around the world.
