From a perfumery to the leading premium beauty platform with a focus on e-commerce

As early as the beginning of the 19th century, the Scottish immigrant John Sharp Douglas began to lay the foundation for today's Douglas Group. Within a very short time, his soap products launched on the market, became bestsellers and were even awarded a medal at the first World's Fair in London in 1851. Under Berta Kolbe, the first woman to take over the management, the company opened a perfumery in Hamburg in 1910 under the name "Parfümerie Douglas". After several takeovers and branch openings – expanding into other European countries from 1973 – the perfumery developed into a group true to its motto "bold, modern and high-quality".

In the course of the #FORWARDBEAUTY future offensive in May 2018, Douglas launched a new brand identity under the leadership of Tina Müller as CEO, which was accompanied by a new focus on e-commerce.

Under the premise DIGITAL FIRST, this initiative was pushed further and Douglas developed into a digitally networked, data-based beauty platform in the form of a digital company with additional brick-and-mortar retail. With this strategic step, the company has since further expanded its position as the first port of call for beauty and become Europe's leading premium beauty platform.
