Since it's creation in 1990, California Skincare Supply, CSS, has established itself as a National Leader in the distribution of the highest quality professional skin care brands, wax and equipment.
Mary Keller and her daughter Kelli Anderson, both passionate estheticians, opened their spa, Face and Body Studio, in 1986. They worked together as a team and were determined to improve the health of their clients' skin, especially concerning acne. They began a global search for a skin care brand with the highest level of active ingredients to make a real difference for those suffering with severe acne. This pursuit not only provided the tools to drastically improve their clients skin but changed the future of this family business. The mom and daughter team then partnered with France Laure in 1987 and became a leader in the Bay Area for the treatment of acne. As the spa business grew the partners began to realize the need for continuing esthetic education as well as personalized help with questions and concerns that estheticians frequently have, and CSS was born.
History & BrandsDistribution began in 1990 with France Laure, Epillyss Advanced Depilatory Solutions and Equipro Esthetic Equipment, In 1993 DDF was added to this lineup of superb brands. Since then CSS has only added brands that have the same core values: highest active ingredient levels, state of the art product development and continuing education. Kelli Anderson has continued in her mother's footsteps and broadened the distribution chain with Circadia by Dr. Pugliese in 2006, and M.A.D Skincare in 2014. Kelli's daughters Alexandra and Julléa Anderson have since joined the company as well, making CSS a three-generation, female, family owned business!
