Iman is a former super model from Somalia known for her slender frame and serene good looks. She founded IMAN Cosmetics after retiring from a 16-year modeling career.
Launched in 1994, the IMAN brand philosophy holds that women with skin of colour represent many races, cultures and ethnicities.
The brand offers skincare and cosmetics and is sold around the world.
In 2004, Iman entered into a multi-year licensing agreement with Procter & Gamble Cosmetics for international distribution of her IMAN and I-IMAN products.
The company has been a tremendous success, celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2004.
Last year she released a book called â€œThe Beauty of Color: the ultimate guide for skin of color.â€
Iman is very active in a number of charities including The Children's Defense Fund, Action Against Hunger and For All Kids Foundation.
