Physicians Formula, a leader in the masstige color cosmetics category, experienced a rebirth in 1997 when Ingrid Jackel, Chief Executive Officer, repositioned the brand as one of the most innovative mass cosmetics brands in the U.S.
With its innovative, problem-meets-solution, high-quality products, Physicians Formula has grown to be recognized as the number one brand in key market segments, including face powder and bronzer.
Ms. Jackel began her career in the beauty industry in the early 1990's at Laboratories Pierre Fabre, France's second largest pharmaceutical and dermo-cosmetic laboratory, working on the U.S. adaptation of some of the company's skincare and body care brands. She joined the Physicians Formula team in 1994 as a Product Manager.
Before becoming Chief Executive Officer in 2006, Ms. Jackel served as Senior Vice President of Marketing and Executive Committee Officer for the company. Under her leadership, Physicians Formula became the first brand to bring mineral makeup, bronzers, color-correction and certified organic makeup to the mass market.
Ms. Jackel has earned numerous accolades from the cosmetic industry and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association.
Born and raised in the South of France, Ms. Jackel received her bachelor's degree in business administration, with honors, from Audencia, Nantes, France.
