What Is It?
Kaleidoscope Cosmetics is the newest Transtellar Corporation on the galactic stage, having only been officially recognised as such on the Solar Galactic Exchange (SGEX) after a merger with Genix Therapeutic Systems - who had recently acquired a large number of former Almach-based corporate assets - in the aftermath of the Almach War.
Kaleidoscope products are found almost everywhere in human space, with a massive market share in personal care and textile products. Originally known for their high-quality ingredients and natural fibres obtained through genetically modified plants and animals, after the Almach War and their rise to TSC status their name became synonymous with cosmetic genetic modification, pushing the envelope - or the limit - on what the Five Points allow, and immediately coming under scrutiny from the Transgressive Technologies Commission. Kaleidoscope was one of the few TSCs to be heavily invested in the Almach Protectorate prior to the withdrawal of the Far Kingdoms occupation and the easing of Skrellian trade restrictions, and as a result has been at the forefront of the Almachi investment rush.
The company markets itself as the only retailer providing "Real" genetic cosmetics. Popular modifications include changes in hair and eye colour, "true permanent" tattoos, exotic face and ear re-shaping, and "all-natural" anti-aging treatments. Their good fortunes and heavy presence in the Almach Protectorate has lead many to speculate that a campaign of diversification may be in Kaleidoscope's future.
