Achievement. Success. The realization of dreams. Mary Kay Inc. was created from one woman’s desire to enrich women's lives. She began by offering quailty products to enhance a woman's image and a perfect business opportunity to help women earn extra money, enjoy more flexibility and grow as independent business owners. The result is a company that, more than 40 years later, still embodies the core philosophies of its founder: to use the Golden Rule as a business guide and to help women live a balanced life by placing faith first, family second and career third.
