The BBIM, Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor of health and beauty products. Our focus and strength are understanding both the latest science and traditional herbal benefits.
There was science before science.

Bella Crown is a prestigious, upscale natural beauty store with organic hair care products, natural hair/skin care products, hair extensions, and wigs.
Complete line of Trichology service products. All liquid solutions are formulated based on herbs and FDA approved hair growth ingredients.
High-end health and beauty product line
Originally made for family members and close friends using top notch ingredients. Quality of the product created wave of demand.
The BBIM didn’t start as a manufacturer nor a product distributor. Far from it.
The Beauty Business Industry Monitor (BBIM) was founded in 2009 by the National Federation of Beauty Suppliers (NFBS) at its official research institute. Its mission was to monitor and research the latest developments in the industry to assist critical decision-makers in determining the course of direction; to develop and train various levels of professionals to improve the quality of services; to exchange knowledge and assistance across borders for the globalization of the beauty industry.
BBIM’s short term mission was to operate in response to the global financial crisis that affected all aspects of the industry in 2009. After proving its effective role, the NFBS (formerly the National Beauty Supply Dealers Association – NBSDA), realized the need for an ongoing research institute and endorsed the BBIM to stand as an independent organization that served a wider scope of industry members.
Now and Future
We are not eager to become a large company. We rather stay small but doing the big things in the health and beauty industry.
The information superhighway brought us to a new civilization. Artificial intelligence may one day determine which products to buy according to each person’s condition. The rapidly changing market environment calls for innovative thinkers and out-of-the-box visionaries. The new market and its consumers will be far too different from the past that it is almost impossible to consult others to lead. The companies and individuals with a clear view of the future must take the lead.
We believe, the BBIM is that company.
