About Fresh

In 1991, our founders Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg saw the need for beauty that was both effective and indulgent. Following their American dream, they opened a small store in Boston devoted to curating natural products from around the world and engaging a community. The original shopkeepers, they created a brand that touches people’s hearts as well as their skin—and quickly developed a cult following.

Today, fresh is a global company headquartered in New York offering a full lifestyle line spanning skincare, lip care, bodycare, and fragrance in 16 countries. But we don’t just aspire to make the best products on the market; we want to be the best beauty brand to work for.
