Over 40 years ago, Tweezerman began its mission to bring high quality, innovative, and best in class tools to the beauty industry. Our position as the beauty tool experts has empowered us to take our niche beauty brand to the next level, setting the highest standards of quality, reliability, innovation and service in our category. Our passionate and loyal fan base motivates the brand to keep developing tools that help consumers look and feel their very best. With consumer loyalty and brand integrity at their core, Tweezerman’s continued mission is to strive for exceptional quality, innovation and education with every beauty tool sold. Tweezerman belongs to the ZWILLING Beauty Group, a leading beauty tool company with subsidiaries and production sites in the US, Europe, India and China.
We are dedicated to contributing to a better world by supporting our communities both locally and globally. Giving back to the society we live in and helping people in need is an integral part of our role and responsibilities in running a growing and profitable business. Our Second Bottom Line, in which we dedicate a share of our profits to charitable causes, is and has always been an important core value of Tweezerman.
All values are considered in the operation of our company: customers, employees, community, and environment. We operate a sustainable business and care for our workers and our neighbors. We make sure that our products, processes and competitive sourcing don’t harm the environment or the people who work for our vendors. Tweezerman became a signatory to the UN Global Compact in March 2002. The Compact’s 10 principles, (which set standards for business practices in the areas of human rights, labor rights and environmental sustainability), have guided our efforts in providing a safe, healthy and positive working environment for our employees, while also being friendly to the environment. We have been working diligently to take environmentally positive steps towards global sustainability as part of our Second Bottom Line initiative. A move to solar power will undoubtedly brighten this very important aspect of our business model moving forward. Tweezerman will source clean, renewable energy and reduce energy costs.
