Latin America has always been of interest to us. We feel there is a unique opportunity to reach consumers who share our values and philosophy,” said George Korres.

In 2009, Korres had entered into a product licensing agreement with Johnson & Johnson, another cosmetics giant, to sell and distribute its products in North America.
