We are a second-generation family business, completely independent (own capital) and driven by a passion for improvement that is shared by the entire VIOKOX team. Over the past 10 years our business has grown fivefold and we have adopted the most cutting-edge technology in the cosmetics industry. All our production is centralised in a single plant in Spain, covering 14,000 m2, giving us complete control of the process and allowing us to guarantee our customers the highest standards of safety and quality.
All of this is backed up by more than 30 years of expertise in the design, development, manufacture and marketing of complete hair removal ranges for the mass market, our core business. We are the allied and trusted partner of leading international brands and retailers. Our driver is innovation as a way to create products with a significant growth in the market, allowing us to progress sustainably every day, with a future vision.

The VIOKOX brand is created for hair products and the hair removal brand changes its name to VIOKOX.
In a small industrial warehouse, manufacturing begins on household and personal care products under the Kox brand. The manufacturing of the hair removal products is still outsourced, but increasingly more products are being finished at VIOKOX.
Product finishing begins on the ground floor of the premises of one of the partners.
Three partners form the company. All partners occupied management positions in the commercial area in multinationals in the cosmetics sector. The partners divide their time between other commercial companies and VIOKOX. VIOKOX had no production facilities at the beginning, only a small warehouse for marketing, and had only two hair removal products that were manufactured externally under the Violet brand.
