Let’s take a trip down memory lane of how CIC humbly begins and becomes one of the aesthetic industry's pillars.
A New Concept of Shop Existed
Elite Skin Perfection gave forth at Glorietta 4. It is a shop that provides a luxury treatment inducing the organic products of Aqua Mineral and Botanifique. On the other side, both brands (Aqua Mineral & Botanifique) were expanding in 4 more prime locations: Glorietta 4, Resorts World Manila, Edsa-Shangrila & SM North Edsa. And the workforce doubled to 200 employees.
After a year, they transfer to the new home at 22F The Pearl Bank Centre, Valero St., Makati City. The member of the family expanded from 31 to 100. It started an expansion from more locations of Aqua Mineral kiosks in Seaside Cebu, Robinsons Galleria, Festival Malate, and Gateway Mall. In the second quarter of the same year, Botanifique was born with three stalls at Glorietta 1 & 2 and Greenbelt 3.
Bigger and Brighter
A newly constructed site as a warehouse that helps to facilitate more brands and cater to the high demand for our products. With this leap of success, the family has expanded from 200 to 250 employees and an additional five (5) kiosks and shops for Elite, Aqua Mineral, and Botanifique at Robinsons Galleria Cebu, SM Pampanga, SM Fairview, and Uptown Mall in Taguig.
Produced Jobs for Filipinos
Cosmetigroup International Corporation hired more Filipino employees to help and support the sales team. The back office Team has become the inner system of the company that consisting of various departments. As we continuously expand, we are able to manage to acquire different locations across Pampanga and Metro Manila. Another milestone has been unfolded for CIC when the organization became a member of the Israel Chambers of Commerce of the Philippines, Inc. The member and workforce of the company become 300+.
This year has been a booming era for Cosmetigroup because they introduced more brands such as Opatra, EZ Step, Elevatione, & Iconique. Along with these endeavors, they thoroughly established a call center department and rented the entire 22F of the Pearl Bank Center. The warehouse expanded and established an exclusive Maintenance Department. CIC also received International recognition from Beauty Insider Singapore for the Botanifique Brand.
The CIC was founded on April 30, 2013, having only 31 employees acquired Holy Land Trading Post Inc., situated at Burgundy Corporate Tower, 252 Sen. Gil Puyat Ave., Makati City. They established ten (10) kiosks from Malate, SM Annex, Robinsons Galleria, Festival Mall, Trinoma, SM Fairview, SM Tarlac, SM City Lanang, & Abrezza Mall.
We started participating in charitable activities and events and on the trend of digitalizing all our transactions care of Back Office Teams as well as becoming active or engaging in social media platforms the press causes the subscribers steadily grown over the years. In the same year, we planned to acquire an entire building for CIC to accommodate our growing family and to deliver excellent customer service to our valued clientele.
The rage of the pandemic has thwarted the operation of many jobs in the entire world. Despite these challenges, Cosmetigroup was able to strive because of our Home Service Facial Treatments in our roster of services. This home facial service is one of our avenues for reaching out to our valued clientele to help them maintain their perfect skin. Elite Skin Perfection Mobile Salon became the other creative way of not stopping the business operation of CIC. It is the first-ever Luxury Mobile salon with an exact replication of processes and treatments inside our physical shops in the malls.
Due to the pandemic surge, the company was forced to downsize those non-performing shops to be more efficient and practical to survive the pervasive occurrence. Henceforth, we decided to relocate to a larger office to experience the comfort and ample space to work. We intensified and empowered the home and mobile services because it was the only avenue to have continuous business operations.
After the surge of the pandemic gradually subsided, Cosmetigroup started to rebuild the processes that will add up to the development and improvement of the teams, operational systems, and other work aspects that have been thwarted. In affiliation with these steps, the company looks forward to more avenues for expansion and networks toward various business ventures.
Expansion & Growth
The goal of Cosmetigroup is still soaring high and providing aesthetic services and products to our valued customers. We aim to expand our power and journey up to the core. We started again the legacy of giving job opportunities to more Filipinos ever since the pandemic began to subside. We are ready to conquer and stand up again amid success.
