We’re very sad to hear that Arnold Langer, founder of Kryolan passed away on February 27th in his home town of Berlin, aged 97.
Kryolan have always and will always be one of our key suppliers and we appreciate all of their hard work throughout the Illamasqua journey. We have always respected and admired the way in which Kryolan have been revolutionary within the makeup world.
Arnold, once a Chemistry student was highly influenced by the glam of 1920’s Berlin and set out to create makeup that no one else had dared create before. The revolutionary approach of combining science and beauty allowed Kryolan to deliver makeup products that had never been seen before on stage, or on screen.
We have always been inspired by the way in which Arnold Langer and the Kryolan company have always done things their own way and as a result, created a company truly unique in the makeup world.
Arnold Langer will definitely be missed, but we are certain both his passion and spirit will continue to live through the Kryolan company.
We’re sending all of our thoughts and love to the Langer family during this sad time.
