Power couple Dr. Simone Xavier and Rene Xavier Filho of North Oaks, Minnesota (a molecular bacteriologist and civil engineer, respectively), launched Sigma Beauty in 2009 with a single makeup brush set. Their very first product instantly captured a cult following and quickly sold out. Made from a special metal alloy for unparalleled strength, these brushes feature ultra-soft, vegan, antimicrobial fibers that better hold, apply and blend a variety of makeup formulas. Sigma brushes just might be the best makeup brushes you'll ever own!
Sigma currently holds more than 100 worldwide patents, with more pending. It's no wonder they are the preferred tools of professional makeup artists around the world.
As symbolized by Σ, the Greek letter for a mathematical sum, Sigma Beauty defines their mission as "Quality + Function + Innovation." With superior materials, ingredients and state-of-the-art technology, Sigma offers premium beauty solutions made for your life. Every tool, texture, formula and color Sigma creates is a uniquely beautiful way to up your makeup game. From their headquarters in Mendota Heights, their local, impassioned team of more than 90% women sell Sigma products worldwide, including to upscale retailers like Nordstrom, Von Maur and Neiman Marcus.
Sigma's product line includes an extensive list of safe, premium-quality, vegan products that are PETA-approved, cruelty free, and formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, formaldehydes and more. In fact, Sigma color cosmetics and brush cleansers are free of more than 70 harsh chemicals commonly used by other brands.
