About Richard Anderson
Named on ’The List’ as one of LA’s hottest movers and shakers by LA Confidential Magazine, Richard Anderson, the creator of Per-fekt Beauty Inc. is confident his per-fekt products are in a class of their own.

Founded in 2005, Anderson single-handedly built Per-fekt Beauty Inc. out of a small office at home in the Hollywood Hills into a multi-million dollar business retailed in over 400 stores worldwide. What was the inspiration? Anderson LISTENED to women. With over 20 years in the beauty industry, he learned that women had one dominant complaint and growing frustration, NO TIME. “I design each product to save time and money, be quick and easy to apply with Smart Color Technology ™, as well as multi-functional with anti-aging benefits to meet the needs of modern women,” states Anderson.

Since the launch of Per-fékt’s first product, Skin Perfection Gel in 2005, Anderson’s strategic business sense, eye for emerging trends, desire to advance the beauty industry and ability to pinpoint the needs of modern consumers, has established him as a leading creative force in the beauty industry, propelling Per-fekt Beauty, Inc. into one of the most sought after beauty lines on the market today.

Prior to launching Per-fekt Beauty Inc., Anderson built a strong reputation as one of the beauty industry’s most influential executives. Over his extensive career, he has successfully launched some of today’s top beauty brands and increased market share for companies as diverse as The Lancaster Group, Yves Saint Laurent and Bobbi Brown Essentials.
