Oriflame Kosmetiek B.V. is a $1.9 billion company that specializes in cosmetics to be sold in a person to person marketing style.
Oriflame was founded in 1967 by two brothers (Jonas af Jochnick and Robert af Jochnick) and a friend (Bengt Hellsten) in Stockholm, Sweden. Oriflame allegedly got it’s name from a Medieval French banner that was only unfurled on the battlefield. Ofiflame made quick progress by moving into the UK in 1970 andIreland in 1972.
Oriflame products range from skin care to accessories to nutritional shakes to their standard cosmetics. Oriflame provides a wealth of knowledge for their products on their web site and even has a web t.v. show based on their “Dare To Be” line for younger females. The episodes follow the lives of 4 women, in English, that have met in Stocholm and run about 2 minutes and 30 seconds each. Oriflame is one of, if not the, first companies to have incorporated a web show based on a product for a specific market. Not only do they make the episodes, they include the latest activity in their brochures as well as provide ways for women to buy the products they feature in the show.
