Cosmopro (Pty)Ltd was established in January 2007 by Francois Louw who saw a need in the market to create Cosmetics that “TRIUMPH” the customer with design, quality and price.

The Management of Cosmopro has achieved many milestones. Francois Louw is Cosmopro’s Managing Director. At the age of 20 he became South Africa’s youngest National Sales Manager for a cosmetic company in Johannesburg, South Africa that focuses on the sales of salon exclusive products. With his management style and the team that he trained, he managed to help the company grow by more than a 100% per year for 6 consecutive years. With his innovative management style, creative ideas, passion for the Cosmetics Industry & commitment to client satisfaction, Francois helped Cosmopro breach the R1 million turnover mark in their 1st year of business and is committed to continued growth in future to become a leader in the South African & African Cosmetic Industry.

The product must pass our “triumph” test before it becomes part of our stable of products. “triumph” – quality products that have to look good, feel good and be well priced.
