We are Stanpa. The Spanish Cosmetics, Toiletry and Perfumery Association. Founded in 1952, we currently have 300 member companies, that represents more than 400 entities that manufacture and distribute perfumes, cosmetics and personal care products in Spain. We represent more than 90% of the whole sector.

Spain is a world leader in producing and exporting perfumes and cosmetics. This is a sector that listens to people and anticipates their needs and motivations for contributing to their current and future well-being, taking care of themselves, feeling better and enhancing their self-esteem.
At the same time, thanks to the continuous progress made in applied research, the sector is evolving, minimising its environmental impact with greener ingredients and formulas, and committing to a responsible and sustainable model of economic development. It also responds to the diversity of a changing socio-demographic situation and promotes inclusion, offering alternatives for every consumer profile.

Our work is based on science, our scope is international, and our mission is to create a world where people look after themselves, live and prosper in harmony with nature.

Our Foundations

The Stanpa Foundation is a non-profit organisation that supports people with cancer, helping them to restore their self-image, recover their self-esteem and carry on their fight against the disease with greater confidence, through the implementation in Spain of the international programme “Look Good, Feel Better”, and now also with its Stanpa MEN Foundation and Generation Z support programmes.

Stanpa Foundation

The Academy of Perfume Foundation is an institution created in 2017 as the next step in the work of the Academy of Perfume since it began in 2007, enhancing the Spanish market’s interest and engagement with the world of fragrances. Our work over these years has enabled us to establish important relationships with public and private entities, which find their common ground in a shared passion for perfume.
