There is only one real professional make-up maker. There is only one Kryolan.

Kryolan have been supplying the film, theater and television industries for over sixty-six years, which makes us one of the world’s first professional make-up brands. We’re still the number one choice for make-up artists today, thanks to our extensive range of over 16,000 high-quality make-up products and accessories.

Kryolan’s chemists have been developing our professional range from our headquarters in Berlin for over six decades. During this time, we’ve created and perfected 750 color-intense shades in over 16,000 products, which are currently used in more than 80 countries in every continent worldwide.

Our qualified chemists are continuously developing new products and looking for raw materials with exceptional qualities – which led to the development of our Dermacolor range, attracting the attention of clinical dermatologists all over the world.

The Professional Difference

What sets Kryolan apart from other make-up brands, professional or otherwise, is our dedication to meeting professional make-up artists’ needs and demands. Every sector has its own expectations, for example theatrical make-up must be extremely hard-wearing, so we only produce formulas that can perform under industry pressures:
  • Every one of our color-true products stands up on stage and on camera, even under HD lighting and filming conditions
  • All our products are very long-lasting, yet still comfortable to wear
  • Every formula we develop is highly pigmented and color-intense
  • We use ingredients of highest purity for unbeatable skin compatibility
  • We guarantee color continuity, which means you can recreate similar looks again and again
  • Our brand offers the highest degree of product safety and reliability – perfect for the professional environment
  • A large number of our products are also suitable for everyday wear.

Our Clinical Credentials

We’ve always made our products to the state-of-the-art. In fact, the raw materials we use are of highest purity exceeding the requirements and expectations for cosmetics.

To meet outstanding quality standards is our goal. That is why we cooperate with leading dermatologists and accomplish ongoing clinical tests to ensure excellent skin compatibility.

We’re also pleased to report that, we always refused to test our products on animals. No Kryolan product has ever been tested on an animal.

And when it comes to ensuring color consistency, we’re also at the forefront of technology. In our laboratories today, most skin shades are controlled with the aid of a photo spectrometer: a device used more commonly in scientific laboratories, which measures and monitors colors with pinpoint accuracy.

At Kryolan, we make make-up. But not like anybody else. Because unlike everybody else, we actually make our make-up. We‘ve done it our own way for 70 years and three generations. We think of it. We manufacture it. Formulate it and love it into existence. There is only one real professional make-up maker. There is only one Kryolan.
