Almay has been changing the name of the game since 1931. In a world of heavy, high fragranced, irritating products, Almay chemist and founder Alfred Woititz embarked on a beauty line that defied the times.
His inspiration? His wife. Fanny May had sensitive skin, a delicate complexion and lots of opinions. Together, they worked to create products that would help all women look and feel their best. With the help of Dermatologist Dr. Marion Sulzberger, the duo created the first hypoallergenic, fragrance-free cosmetic line. They coined it Almay, a perfect combination of Al+May.
Part science. Part self-expression. Almay has always led the way.
