Several cosmetic companies have tried to come up with products that will help women to feel and look their best. Mary Kay is one of them. But it hasn’t been able to come up with products that really work. So how can it do better?

Located in Lewisville, Texas, the new Mary Kay facility will support the cosmetics company’s global needs. It will feature state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and cutting-edge research labs. The new facility is estimated to have a total capacity of 700 employees.
The facility was named in honor of company co-founder Richard R. Rogers. It will replace the company’s previous manufacturing facility in Dallas. The new facility has been built at a cost of more than $100 million.
The facility features a zero-waste-to-landfill system and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology. Mary Kay has invested millions of dollars in R&D. It has earned more than 1,500 patents.
