Martha (Marty) Harris Joshua
President,
M3 Cosmetic Labs, LLC.

Marty Joshua is President of M3 Cosmetic Labs, LLC, manufacturer of Arganics® brand products. Based in Daytona Beach, FL, M3 Cosmetic Labs is one of the newest and largest manufacturers of ethnic hair care products in the United States, with affiliated offices in North Little Rock, Arkansas and Johannesburg, South Africa.

In partnership with daughter Mary Lee Joshua, Marty co-launched M3 Cosmetic Labs, LLC to fill a void in the Ethnic Hair Care Market. During their tenure as the sales & marketing powerhouses at J.M. Products, the makers of the ISOPLUS® brand, the mother-daughter team witnessed how fundamental changes in the Ethnic HBC market were affecting quality and innovation. Together, the two have created a new brand that puts quality and innovation back in the limelight. Inspired by the industry's great pioneers, M3 poured extensive research into developing a product that mirrored the team's self image and, in the process, discovered the next generation in oil replenishment technology, Argan Oil.

"The Ethnic Hair Care market is built on the great achievements of industry pioneers – Madam CJ Walker, George Johnson, Edward Gardner, Fred Luster and Ernest Joshua, Sr. to name a few. They paved the way when no one else dared. It is their efforts that created our billion-dollar category. M3 Cosmetic Labs is fueled by that same pioneering spirit and creativity."
— Marty Joshua, President M3 Cosmetic Labs.
