About Retrica, Inc.

As a company, Retrica’s mission is to create a new playground where you can freely express yourself and discover a new you every time, everywhere.

Our story began in 2012, when we launched an app with a mission to deliver the world’s best selfie experience. Boasting over a hundred free filters to choose from, Retrica paved the way for  community members around the world to discover their daily lives in a different light, and share that moment with others.

Now, we empower 350 million people to express themselves and communicate with others across borders through photo and video.
