What’s in a Name?

Ever wonder what those funky acronyms on your beauty products stand for?  Here’s a list of some of the ones I was able to find…

eos:  Evolution of Smooth

TIGI:  Named for founders Giuseppe (Toni) and Gaetano (Guy) Mascolo

DDF: Doctor’s Dermatologic Formula

GHD (hair straighteners):  Good Hair Day

KMS (California):  Named for biochemist Jamey Mazzotta and partners Kornfield and Smith.

LORAC:  “Carol” spelled backwards, after founder Carol Shaw. (Not an acronym, but still interesting…)

OPI: Named after a dental supply company (Odontorium Products Inc.) purchased by founder George Schaeffer. (He realized the products being used for dentures and other dental products could be used for artificial nails!)


So there you go.  Random information you’ll probably need.  Not even on Jeopardy!  🙂
