While you may be unfamiliar with Turkish cosmetic brand Farmasi, the company has garnered a sizable fanbase over the years. With collections centered on active components such as aloe, calendula, and rose, Farmasi combines the skincare and cosmetics diversity of The Body Shop with the worldwide cache of La Roche-Posay (at an affordable price point). As a result, we began researching the company, its operations, and the items that consumers like the most.
While Farmasi remains relatively unknown in the United States, it claims to be Turkey’s biggest cosmetics and personal care manufacturer, as well as one of the biggest in Europe, with a daily production capacity of more than 1 million. The Turkish brand, established by Dr. Cevdet Tuna in the 1950s, began as a pharmaceutical company before evolving into a cosmetics business. In 2004, the firm introduced cosmetics under the Farmasi brand, and five years later released skincare under the Dr. C Tuna brand.
Farmasi products have developed a devoted international following due to their high-quality goods, affordable prices, and eco-friendly purpose. Each product, from mascaras to lipsticks and body wash to facemasks, is made in-house using water sourced from natural wells on-site and is free of parabens, phosphates, phthalates, and formaldehyde. Additionally, the company is a proponent of ethical treatment and animal rights, guaranteeing that none of its goods undergo animal testing.
Farmasi is also a multilevel marketing business, where consumers may become “Beauty Influencers” for the brand and earn money by distributing products (sellers will be given a 50 percent commission based on the total purchase of each customer). On the business’s website, there is a warning about earnings that reads, “According to industry norms and corporate estimates, entrepreneurs’ average yearly gross revenue is expected to range between USD 500 and USD 2,000.
Please keep in mind that these figures do not include the costs involved with establishing a Farmasi company, which may surpass the profits earned.”
If you’re wondering why you’ve never heard of Farmasi, it just started shipping to the United States in 2019. The following are some Farmasi products you may wish to try. Let’s explore further here.

We’re sure it’s worth the try after going through many YouTube reviews demonstrating this product and seeing it completely conceal any signs of dark circles, breakouts, freckles, and pigmentation.
VFX Pro Strobe Cream
If you are a sucker for a dupe, this dazzling primer is a close match for MAC’s Strobe Cream. Apply the cream all over for an immediate burst of moisture and shine, or use it as a highlighter on the face’s high points. The greatest thing is that the solution is oil-free, which means you can achieve the brightening effect and that too without seeming greasy.
Dr. C Tuna Calendula Oil Face Wash
It’s no secret that the path to flawless skin begins with an exceptional cleanser. We all need something that thoroughly cleanses our skin of debris, extra oil, and makeup but does not dry it out. Calendula oil is a natural oil derived from marigold flowers that are renowned for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal effects. Consider adding this cleanser to your basket if you have acne, eczema, or sensitive skin.
Dr. C Tuna Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask
Do you have 11 dollars and 15 minutes to spare on the weekend? This deep-cleansing face mask is the missing piece of skincare from your weekend. For ages, tea tree oil has been utilized in traditional medicine due to its therapeutic, antibacterial, and germ-fighting properties. This clay mask packed with tea tree oil promises to help remove pollutants and absorb excess sebum.
Age Reversist Serum
Dr. C Tuna’s Age Reversist collection seems to have a sizable internet following. Any Farmasi lover is certain to have one of these anti-aging products, at least, in their rotation, and what is better than their serum. This rapidly absorbing solution moisturizes the skin without leaving a greasy behind.
Pure Rose Water
Farmasi’s rose water line features the brand’s most costly items. Rosewater is antioxidant-rich and has been proven to alleviate inflammation, decrease redness, and even improve mood. To regulate the skin’s moisture levels, take a cotton pad and soak it with this Rose Water.
Activated Charcoal Black Mask
If you’ve ever been intrigued by the black peeling masks that have been circulating on Instagram then this Detoxifying Black Mask by Farmasi is the stuff of viral skin care fantasies. It includes charcoal to draw out oil, grime, dead skin, and blackheads, but also vitamin B3 for added moisture. However, this mask is not for light-hearted people: although reviews indicate that it leaves skin soft, removal may result in a tear, so use sparingly and only in congested areas.
