About Warpaint London PLC


Warpaint is a colour cosmetics business, based in Iver, Buckinghamshire. It is made up of two divisions: close-out and own-brand.  The second and larger own-brand division consists primarily of the Group's flagship brand, W7 - an extremely creative, design-focused cosmetic brand proposition with a focus on the 16-30 age range, delivering high-quality cosmetics at affordable prices. The W7 brand has grown organically since its inception in 2002 and now contains over 680 items which are sold into high street retailers and independent beauty shops across the UK, Europe, Australia and the US. In 2016, W7 was supplied to over 250 customers in more than 50 countries.


In November 2017 Warpaint acquired Retra Holdings, a UK colour cosmetics business with a significant focus on the gifting market.  Retra owns three major brands: Technic, Body Collection and Man's Stuff, in addition to white label cosmetics produced for several major high street retailers.
