When Ivan B. Combe founded the company in 1949 his mission was to create products that meet real consumer needs that no other company was paying attention to or knew how to fix. He was an innovator, not an imitator, and it’s still the same today at Combe. Our current brands are category leaders in feminine health and intimate skin care, men’s grooming and oral care.
Building on Ivan Combe’s vision and leadership, his son, Chris Combe oversaw the robust growth of our company for two decades until his retirement in 2014.
Since 2014, Chris’ daughter, Keech Combe Shetty, and her husband, Akshay Shetty, have been steering our company into the future, as the Co-CEOs of the company. We are firmly in our third generation of Combe entrepreneurialism — building on our flagship brands, while searching for our next breakthrough idea or partnership, informed and inspired by the same consumer-centric philosophy we have held for almost seven decades.
