THE HISTORY OF CYCLAX
Cyclax was founded in 1896 by Frances (Fanny) Forsythe when she opened her first beauty salon in Mayfair, London. Cyclax started in the front room of 58 South Molton Street, London where Frances, using an alias, Mrs. Hemming, provided advice and beauty treatments.
After a short period of trading, Mrs.Hemming began to make and sell cosmetics. It took around five years to develop a range of over 40 Cyclax formulas and preparations, and at first, these were only available through a central London Salon; the original Cyclax ranges included Skin and Hair Products, Face Powders, Eye Lotions, Lip Lotions and Soap.
Cyclax products went on sale in Europe and across parts of the UK just before the First World War and were retailed in department stores such as Selfridges and available through many chemist shops across the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and the USA.
Cyclax is one of the world’s oldest cosmetic companies still in operation today. Amongst Cyclax rivals are brands such as Elizabeth Arden, Max Factor, Revlon, Coty, and Yardley.
Cyclax remained a family-owned business until 1970 when it was sold to the American merchant bankers Lehman Brothers. Through the 1970s and 1980s, Cyclax has passed through mixed and famous ownership including British American Tobacco and SmithKline Beecham. Richards & Appleby Ltd. and now Three Pears Brands who have solely focused on rejuvenating the brand since its sale in October 2018.
Three Pears was founded in 1973, supplying high volumes of branded and non-branded toiletries and household goods to independent retailers and market traders at competitive prices. Three Pears are committed to 100% UK Manufacture of all of the Cyclax products.
