ARTDECO – Germany’s Market Leader in the Selective Cosmetic Market
Within 15 years, ARTDECO has established itself as the leading brand at Germany’s
perfumeries and beauty salons. Based on a sophisticated niche strategy, ARTDECO
has reached market shares of over 40% in certain product groups, such as
eyeshadows, lip liners, camouflage, artificial lashes and nail care. The brand has
therefore become indispensable for any well-stocked perfumery which wishes to offer

In terms of turnover, ARTDECO has a market share of almost 17.5% of the selective
color cosmetics market, more than any international luxury brand. In terms of units

The Marketing Concept
ARTDECO offers the full range of marketing materials which can easily be adapted to
local markets. Window-display material, small gifts with purchase and promotion
displays can be combined with media campaigns for the most effective marketing
mix. The advertising concept combines brand building imagery with consumer
information, introducing novelties, while illustrating the brand’s strengths.
Lavishly illustrated, informative end-consumer brochures (in part with integrated
tester sachets and high-quality, luxury samples) supplement personal consultancy
and aid the right choice of products. In addition, all new products are of course
presented online at www.artdeco.de.
The imagery emphasizes the brand philosophy; to provide a full assortment in order
to enhance natural beauty and achieve professional results.
This concept meets the need of the main consumer group – the confident woman,
who knows what she wants and wants to choose her own colors; the woman that
wants outstanding quality at fair prices and for whom a brand name is mainly a
quality guarantee and not only prestige.
In addition, ARTDECO offers comprehensive training materials on a wide range of
topics. Our experienced marketing and international training team is able to assist
with market launches and trainings.
The unique and innovative ARTDECO products are frequently mentioned and
