I saw a blurb about this on Happi.com the other day and I thought it was noteworthy so I wanted to bring it to your attention:
German firm Maxim Markenprodukte is opening a US sales division, Maxim Group, LLC. Founded in 1980, Maxim is a producer of private label and own-brand cosmetic and personal care products, operating five facilities across Germany, Luxembourg, and France. Maxim products can be found in all the leading supermarket, drug and specialty stores throughout Europe. The firm’s brands include skin care brand Kaloderma, fragrance brands Miro, Artes Florales and EasyRider and BabyDerm.
Another interesting tidbit: on their Kaloderma website, I noticed that Maxim also makes Herbacin (makers of my current holy grail hand cream, which is already available in the US). I would love to know what you think if you've tried any Kaloderma products (there's currently one review for Kaloderma on the Makeup Alley website).
Since Maxim is just now opening a US sales division, I think it will probably be a little while before we start to see their products in stores (and which stores may carry them remains to be seen). But if you spot any of these products in your area, I'd love to know where you found them, and if you tried anything.
