Mary Kay Ash is changing the world of business by introducing Beauty by Mary Kay while giving more opportunities to women and empowering them. The company deals in skin care with the basic treatment set which includes four skin care products and a foundation. In the '60s, most American bathrooms were white. So pink was chosen for the Company's packaging to give women beauty products. In 1995, The Mary Kay Building, the 13-floor, pink granite building of nearly 600,000 square feet became the world headquarters, which is situated in 34 acres, and is in Addison, Texas, north of Dallas. Mary Kay’s employees and independent sales members focus on growth and growing success of the company. The company established The Mary Kay Foundation SM, to fund cancer research and to prevent domestic violence. Baylor University awarded Mary Kay Ash as the “Greatest Female Entrepreneur in American History” in an academic study.
