It is applied through the 4 pillars of Martha Tilaar Group which become the foundation in every activity and every step of company’s business units.
Martha Tilaar Group is all about preserving Indonesian culture. This concern is shown through creating annual Sariayu Colour Trend. Since 1987, the colour trend has become the center of Indonesia’s make up industry.
Aside from the color trend, the support in Indonesian creative and cultural industry can be seen through the group’s participations at events such as Jember Fashion Carnaval (JFC) and the usage of SPA Indonesian concept to facilitate mind and body refreshment, which in turn become the realization of beauty culture.
Martha Tilaar Group believes that sharing knowledge to those who are interested in the beauty industry is one effort to beautify Indonesian and international women. To achieve the goal of the effort, Martha Tilaar Group is sharing beauty education by building schools and training centers, holding beauty classes as well as working together with educational institutions and the government to enhance the knowledge of Indonesian people, especially women, about natural beauty.

Beauty class covers step-by-step make up tutorial, motivation and personality training, fashion as well as entrepreneurship. Martha Tilaar Group works together with Universitas Indonesia to create Master Degree program in Herbal so that Indonesia, as a country blessed with nature wealth second only to Brazil, can have a leading herbal industry which in turn will result in increasing the country’s income. Since 2007, Sariayu and the Ministry of Research and Technology have been holding Martha Tilaar Innovation Center (MTIC) Award.
