You will not find Artistry skincare and cosmetics products sitting on the shelves, and I believe it is the only direct-selling brand classified in the premium category, but it is there, although sitting quietly it is among the world’s top 5 brands.
" About the quality of the products, rest assured as it one of the very few cosmetic firms in the world that has its own production plant harboring approximately 200+ employees "hygiene. The production plant for Artistry ( Amway ) is located at Ada, Michigan, sharing the same premise with its parent company - Alticor Corporate Enterprises, its world HQ. The production environment complies to the pharmaceutical grade, a highly sanitized environment where most of the critical process plant components are made from stainless steel 304/ 316 where no rust is allowed and even the water used for steam generation and production are very pure, less than 0.1 microSiemen/cm. Rich DeVos founded Amway Corp ( now under the umbrella of Alticor Corporate Enterprises ) with his business partner and also lifelong friend, the late Jay Van Andel in the late 50’s. Today, Alticor is a private corporation, managed and run by most of the members from DeVos and Van Andel families. DeVos and his family own the NBA’S franchise Orlando Magic, the US professional basketball team. This makes Artisty pretty much an America brand as Artistry is Amway’s skincare and beauty product.
Not far from it about 12 miles away, at Grand Rapids, there lies the Artistry Beauty Institute, a R&D and training institute, the birth place of Time Defiance Defense Complex 3.0 wrinkle remover and other scientific breakthroughs products. Next time, when you are hitch hiking in Michigan, remember to ask for a plant tour at Alticor, saying that you are an avid follower to Artistry and have huge collection of it in your cabinet.
