According to the Peter Thomas Roth website, Peter Thomas Roth is the founder of the Peter Thomas Roth skincare company. He is the child of Hungarian immigrants.
The website explains that the Peter Thomas Roth skincare line was launched in 1993. The founder created his original products using skills passed down from his Hungarian ancestors, who owned and operated spas in Hungary during the 19th and 20th centuries. As of 2014, the line is available from traditional retailers, such as Sephora and Nordstrom, as well as from QVC. The line includes a broad range of skincare products, such as cleansers, scrubs, masks and peels, for both men and women.
