Who knew beauty could require so much paperwork?
Marwa Aljaber certainly didn’t until she established MADCOSMETICS. The 23-year-old NYIT graduate faced the lengthy registration and licensing process when launching the luxury beauty brand, but she powered through it.
With help from the Bahrain Development Bank and Riyadat, Marwa found an affordable office in Riyadat where she could brainstorm ideas, build her brand, and standing up on her feet; getting her start in local beauty lounges & boutique stores.
With a blossoming business firmly established, Marwa wants to her products to spread through the Middle East, allowing MADCOSMETICS to bring handmade, unique products to all.
The challenges Marwa faced included the lengthy process to get a proper commercial registration for her business and the licenses to import and export products, but she is hopeful now, as she is aiming higher and bigger.
“I am trying to overcome this challenge by approaching high-end retailers & the biggest multi-brand stores in the Gulf…”, Marwa tells us.
MADCOSMETICS products can be found in Paris Gallery, Salam Stores, and 51-East, the biggest multi-brand stores in the region.
