Memebox is pioneering a new category of beauty, one that uses technology and data to disrupt long-standing industry practices to become one of the fastest trending beauty companies in the world. We are unique in our approach to beauty ecommerce, as a full-stack, vertically integrated beauty brand portfolio and platform, that manages 100% fulfillment in every market we operate in. Our mission gravitates around an enhanced mobile shopping experience that delights and empowers our customers. We strive to create a synergistic ecosystem through our “O2O” (online to offline) strategy that drives online customers to offline storefronts from our online platforms (and vice versa from offline to online). Through our platform, we distribute both 3rd party brands, as well as skincare and cosmetics private label brands.
We are one of the fastest growing beauty ecommerce companies in the world and concentrate our product offerings around a rising global trend: Asian Beauty & Culture. Technology is in our DNA (Y Combinator W14) and we are dedicated to incessant innovation around data analysis, in order to deliver the most engaging and creative customer shopping experience possible. With our R&D Lab, we are able to continuously innovate on proprietary products, formulas, and functionality.
We strive to provide our customers with an amazing experience and quality products that define the latest in global beauty trends. Memebox is a fun, seamless, and a reliable online and mobile platform for users to access brands from Korea, Asia, and beyond, that they originally could not access before.
