New York City, January 5, 2015 – GFL Cosmetics, Europe’s premier hospitality amenity company, is launching into the United States market.
While celebrating its 20th anniversary in Milan, Italy, GFL Cosmetics is launching its newest venture: distribution within the United States. Specializing in retail and courtesy bath articles for the hotel and spa hospitality industries, GFL is known for its superior quality products, Ecocert Organic and EcoLabel certified cosmetics, and innovative, aesthetically pleasing and environmentally conscience packaging.
“We are very pleased to introduce the hotels and resorts of the U.S. to the exceptional caliber of products for which GFL has become known throughout Europe,” says Guido Bonadonna, CEO of GFL. “Passion for our work, the confidence of expertise, and unlimited imagination continually drive us to create new offerings that expand and push boundaries, challenging existing standards. This has allowed us to help shape the industry we work in, and is a drive that we feel will resonate with the U.S. market.”
GFL products are made in its state of the art, utra-modern facility in northern Italy, just outside of Milan. The utmost consideration is paid to minimizing environmental impact throughout the manufacture, delivery and consumption of each product, complete with on-site, direct recycling during the production process. Each raw material is selected with respect for environmental requirements, uniformity to ecological standards and vegetable origin. Products are created with highly biodegradable formulations and packaging, utilizing PET and other ecofriendly materials. Each formulation is dermatologically tested and free of parabens.
In addition to fully custom offerings, GFL USA is offering four cosmetic and accessory ranges, each with a unique aesthetic and product experience and available in individual, as well as retail and dispenser sizes:
