Tova Borgnine was raised in her hometown by her father, who worked as a graphic artist, and her mother, who worked as a translator at the US Embassy. Right after her parents’ divorce in 1953, she moved with her mother to New York City, USA, where she attended modeling and acting classes, but soon quit in order to pursue a career in the cosmetic arts as a beauty industry entrepreneur, so she began to study with the most famous make-up artists.

Upon finishing her studies, Tova launched a boutique called “Tova’s Touch”, located along the New Jersey shore, which marked the beginning of an increase of her net worth. However, she soon sold this business, and relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada, where she began learning more about the cosmetic arts, establishing new friendships with many famous artists, including Merle Oberon, from whom she learnt about a cactus-based face cream made by a Mexican family. In no time, Tova founded her own make-up company and began to sell it under the name “Tova’s Cactine® Masque”, achieving enormous success, as many Hollywood stars started to use those face creams, which became known as “Facelift In A Jar”.

Although Tova couldn’t place her products in department stores, it didn’t stop her developing the business, as she presented it in ΤΟVΛ® catalogues and began to sell via toll-free telephone ordering and acceptance of credit cards for payments, which added a considerable amount to her net worth. As her business grew, she hired and trained ΤΟVΛ® Beauty Counselors to keep in personal touch with her clients.

To speak further about her career, in 1982 Tova created her own perfume called “ΤΟVΛ® Signature” fragrance, which was nominated for inclusion in the Fragrance Hall of Fame. Since 1990, her products have been available on the QVC shopping network, including from 1992 a fragrance named “Body, Mind & Spirit®” she created. Five years later she won the FiFi award for ΤΟVΛ® Nights, and in 2006 created “Love Everlasting”, all of which increased her net worth by a large degree.

More recently, Tova launched her own internet retail presence in 2013, expanding her business more. Her net worth is certainly rising.

When it comes to speak about her personal life, Tova has been married twice, firstly to businessman Louis A. Littleton from 1965 to 1972; they have a son together. In the following year, she married famous actor Ernest Borgnine, with whom she was in marriage until his death in 2012. Tova currently divides her time between her residences in West Chester, Pennsylvania, and Beverly Hills, California.
