Linda DeFratus has been fascinated by skin care and make up since high school. Her professional career in the beauty business began in 1961, giving her fifty years of experience in retail, multi-level, contract packaging, raw material sales and management.
Her background includes weekly appearances on a local women’s television program in her hometown of Denison, Texas.
After moving to Dallas in 1972, she wrote and published a popular handbook, “How to Look Younger in Seven Days,” that helps every woman find the best products for her skin.
Over the years, Linda has completed numerous sales, marketing, and people management courses, and has attended Grayson College. She has delivered sales and motivational presentations to large audiences, as well as to local women’s clubs and schools, to teach proper skin care techniques, share product knowledge, and demonstrate how to sell and present products. Ms. DeFratus is also an active member of the Society of Cosmetics Chemists.
A strong believer in the effectiveness of perseverance and a positive mental attitude, Linda DeFratus thoroughly enjoys being an active player in the beauty business. Reach her at LDeFratus@actifirm.com

As for enthusiasm, when asked why she chose Actifirm she replied, “Iʼm eager to learn new things, I saw the passion Sandra (Director of Interactive Marketing) has for the company and I couldnʼt wait to join in the fun. I enjoy helping people and getting to know their stories.” Needless to say, we enjoy Jaclynʼs energy. Itʼs…exciting!
