Born and raised in Brooklyn, Marks’ first foray into business was selling products to the health food trade from his car trunk. At age 25, Brian started a haircare company that would become famous for its trademark, “African Pride.” That company was so successful that Brian was the recipient of the prestigious “Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award” in 1996. Revlon subsequently purchased the company in 1998.

Brian then was named president of Revlon’s Multicultural Division worldwide. After a few years waiting out his non-compete contract, Brian launched another new brand, “Dr. Miracles,” in 2004, which was based on a fictitious, cure-providing scientist. Like “African Pride,” the brand was a big success and Marks sold it to a major private equity company. 

It was on a trip to Israel that something magical happened, and Brian was compelled to launch My Israel’s Miracle. He says, “Traveling through Israel, an amazing connection to something ancient, spiritual, and energizing came over me. I wondered if haircare secrets were lurking beneath the energy and emotion I was feeling. After intensive research, I discovered the answer was yes, there were ingredients that have been used for thousands of years. I combined these ingredients and created My Israel’s Miracle, which represents my new love and respect for the wonders of Israel. I am proud to highlight the amazing and positive things found throughout Israel.”
