At Merle Norman Cosmetics, we believe in “in” sourcing. From a humble kitchen in California, MerleNorman Cosmetics started as, and continues to be, an American company. For us, “Made in the USA” is not just a cliché. It is a literal translation of who we are. Founded by an American born and bred woman who paved the way for female entrepreneurship, we are a family-run business. We opened our first Studio (franchise location) in sunny Santa Monica and built facilities in both California andTennessee. We employ nearly 500 U.S. workers to research, develop, manufacture and package our own line of skin care and color products. To ensure optimum quality control, we house our own Research & Development department on the premises of our headquarters in Los Angeles. Usingstate-of-the-art technology and the finest ingredients available, we take pride in developing unique, high-quality products that address the needs of today’s consumers while also presenting a broad lineof color cosmetics for today’s fashionable consumers.
We are proud that our formulas are made right here in the U.S., along with the compacts, jars, bottles, caps and tubes in which our great products are packaged. While we may source a component from overseas, we design our line so that all product and manufacturing of the finished good is done here in the U.S. Except for a few select items such as sponges, puffs, pumps and pencils which are specialized items made overseas, we are 100% American made. That authenticity is beyond comparison in this industry.
In 1931, Merle Norman realized the American dream by building this company with the help of her nephew, J.B. Nethercutt. Today, J.B.’s son Jack Nethercutt continues the legacy with his wife Helen.

About Merle Norman Products
"We are very careful about where we sell Bumble and bumble, and we choose only the finest salons, apothecaries and shops - places with friendly hairdressers and salespeople who LOVE hair and who LOVE Bumble and bumble. We do this because we make our products to be sold by experts who know our products up and down, backwards and forwards, inside and out.
But sometimes our bottles end up in places that are unauthorized to sell our products. Places we didn't choose, such as mass market drug and supermarket chains. Its important to us that our customers purchase the real Bumble and bumble (not counterfeit, or old or discontinued Bumble and bumble), so that every time you buy one of our bottles, or tubes or jars, it is filled with the same, authentic stuff for your hair you’ve come to love – we’re sure you will agree.
So, for the love of hair (and Bumble and bumble), PLEASE don't buy Bb. where it shouldn't be."
