About usAnn Francke & Barry King, Founders of Beautorium Natural & Organic Beauty Emporium

We (Ann & Barry) lived in London and Germany for over 20 years and were senior executives in the beauty industry.

Ann has over 20 years experience of brand marketing and general management. She was Strategic Marketing Director of Boots PLC, responsible for Boots own brands, international operations and new businesses. Ann spent 13 years at Procter and Gamble running a number of European businesses including Olay & Max Factor, before ending as global General Manager. She was privileged to work with some of the greats, including Madonna, Mario Testino, the editors of British and French Vogue, as well as the late Anita Roddick and Isabella Blow.

Barry has been fascinated by formulations for years and qualified as a pharmacist in 1978 in England. He has over 20 years experience running multi-site Health & Beauty retail operations for Boots in the UK. Barry was then Regional Manager for Thorntons plc, running over 200 stores in the UK and Ireland. He went on to run the Internet and Catalogue business for Thorntons before moving to the US.

Why Beautorium?

Natural and Organic beauty care (and the standards for it) are more developed in Europe. Many small, high quality brands have spent decades developing special products that are beautifully presented. Shopping is typically done in personalized boutiques and pharmacies, with knowledgeable and professional staff. We aim to recreate that environment, and bring the knowledge, passion and experience we gained in Europe to our Beautorium online boutique in America.
