From Finland to South Africa, from France to the Czech Republic, there are more than 2,200 people at Kao committed to contributing to a more sustainable world and to offering high quality products to our customers and consumers.
Whether they work in our European Research Laboratories to develop the best and latest hair care technologies, or our production sites to manufacture products of the highest technology, or our warehouses and distribution centers to make sure that our products are delivered in time to our customers across the region, or our offices to develop and market our brands – all our employees are driven by the same values and principles as laid down in The Kao Way.
It is this business philosophy that makes Kao the employer of choice for our people and the business partner our customers trust.
The business in our region focuses on premium beauty brands across three distinct sectors:
