Bourjois was founded in 1863, by French actor Joseph-Albert Ponsin, who developed a line of colour cosmetics for his fellow actors.

The proposal is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory clearances. The relevant employee representative bodies will be consulted prior to entering into a definitive agreement.
