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. Whether developing a breakthrough formula, designing a marketing campaign, or welcoming guests in our shops, you are hand-picked to join us on our journey to make the world more beautiful one heartfelt experience at a time. Because beauty is more than skin deep. And fresh is more than a brand…it’s a feeling.

In 2000, fresh partnered with the world’s leading luxury products group, Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), gaining invaluable access to expertise, research, technology, professional development opportunities, and world-class benefits. The Group is comprised of a unique portfolio of over 70 prestigious brands including Louis Vuitton, Sephora, Dior, Benefit Cosmetics, Bulgari, and Veuve Clicquot, At fresh, we’ve created a warm, inspiring environment that encourages our teams around the world to dream big, because that’s how we got here.
