With eleven production sites located all over the world, Schwan Cosmetics has become the world market leader in private-label cosmetic pencils.

Schwan Cosmetics employs 3,198 people worldwide, of which 1,337 in Germany and 1,861 internationally. During the fiscal year 2015/2016, Schwan Cosmetics sold over 600 million pencils worldwide.

The company, which was founded in 1865, is family-owned and is, nowadays, operated by the fifth generation. In 1927, the company transferred its pencil making expertise to the cosmetics industry.
