Premium Beauty News - This year can be considered a milestone for iTiT Cosmetics!
Mirko Panico - It is indeed a special year. Five years ago iTiT Cosmetics was founded with the aim to create a new company specialized in the design, study and manufacturing of high profile cosmetics. iTiT Cosmetics is the result of an idea and an entrepreneurial partnership between me and Raquel Melgarejo Antequera. We had a vision: “Global Cosmetics Designer”. A unique and innovative concept in the field of cosmetics, which proposes ideas, concepts and unique products. From the creation of lip products and emulsions, the field in which we operate, we developed as a global cosmetic designer shortly after its inception proposing innovative products, which included those for the eyes.
