Gotta love the nepotism here. I do think they could afford to bring some new ideas and fresh air into the organization but looks like that won't be happening any time soon.

More bad news at Forma, parent company of Morphe

 

In addition to Forma Brands filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy at the top of 2023, the company behind Morphe has undergone a round of layoffs. In October of 2023, Forma Brands quietly let go of 23 employees, with the decision taking effect immediately. The layoffs spanned across several departments, including social media, creative, marketing, influencer relations, and communications. Itโ€™s unknown how many employees are still with the company, but Forma has since begun to outsource work to agencies to bolster its creative and marketing departments.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

There's a new book coming out on Glossier

 

kjkugy

 

Five things learned from the book from thekit.ca

 

What working at Glossier was like

In the vein of a Silicon Valley start-up, Weiss tried to create a work environment so enticing, employees would want to spend more time there. The bathrooms were fully stocked with Glossier products and Aesop Post-Poo Drops in each stall; departments had budgets for things like pasta dinners or tarot card readings. The companyโ€™s all-pink Soho office was stocked with fresh flowers and Byredo Burning Rose candles; fridges were filled with coconut water, yogurt and organic berries. โ€œโ€˜They were pretty and interesting but at the same time, it was like โ€˜why donโ€™t you give me a raise?โ€™โ€ Meltzer quotes one employee as saying. Plus, staffers described a cliquishness that leaned more Conde Nast. 

 

ITG/Glossier staffers went on to big things

Having worked for Emily Weiss offered resume cachet. Quite a few ex-staffers went on to create their own successful beauty brands: Into The Gloss editorial director Nick Axelrod-Welk launched the genderless skin and body-care brand Nรฉcessaire; VP of brand development Annie Kreighbaum (she created Boy Brow) and head of digital product Annie Zhou created the solutions-oriented body care brand Soft Services; and Diarrha Nโ€™Diaye, who worked in product development and innovation, came out with Ami Colรฉ, a line of makeup designed for dark skin.

 

The Top Shelf was even more influential than we knew

The ITG Top Shelf series, which featured cool women like Gucci Westman and Jenna Lyons and made heroes out of cult products like Biologique Recherche P50, Weleda Skin Food and Mason Pearson hairbrushes, hit because items like these signified what you wanted to say about yourself, said you were in the know. Beauty brands took notice too, and used it to do competitive research. โ€œWeโ€™d go and research products that were mentioned and see if there was a way to commercialize it. No other place was opening the gates of what these people used,โ€ said a veteran of a major beauty company. It also made brands hyper-aware of packaging; suddenly a moisturizer or hair oil had to look good on a shelf because we were now in the age of documenting and sharing our stash.

 

The failure of the Play makeup line

Glossier Play, launched in March 2019, was the companyโ€™s attempt to conquer makeup. The line included lipsticks, gel liners and face glitter but according to a high-level creative employee, โ€œit went sideways.โ€ To meet the launch deadline, staff were staying late, lying on the floor and crying in front of their co-workers. And when it did come out, reaction was mixed. Not only was it not what the customers wanted but the foil packs and non-biodegradable glitter illustrated that the company did not prioritize sustainability. The backlash was swift, the line was discontinued within a year, and the unused packaging was worth $100,000.

 

The inclusivity problem

According to Meltzerโ€™s interviews with former employees, the inclusivity Weiss was trying to create with the brandโ€™s imagery was not being replicated internally. One time, Weiss was reportedly in a meeting with the tech team when she pointed out โ€œwe donโ€™t have any people of colour in here.โ€ When another staffer who was Asian corrected Weiss, โ€œEmily was like โ€˜Really? You identify as a person of colour?โ€™โ€  In 2020, an Instagram account called @outtathegloss documented the grievances of queer and BIPOC employees working in the retail stores. Some said they were victimized by customers (for example, customers applied blackface with dark shades of concealer without any action taken by managers); others that their identities were being used to make the company seem progressive. Weiss took these allegations seriously and an action plan was put into place, but the brandโ€™s social following started to decline and searches for the products to dwindle.

 

The vibe shift

As the perfectly executed flatlay on Instagram gave way to the chaos of Tik Tok, the aesthetic ITG and Glossier had popularized started to feel stale. Competitors like Kosas, Merit, Rare Beauty and Violette gained traction in the same beauty space. In 2022, Weiss, who had recently had her first child, handed the reins to Glossierโ€™s chief commercial officer Kyle Leahy, a seasoned executive who had worked with blander brands like Cole Haan focusing on operations, and was a worker, not a show pony. So far, changes include the fact that Balm Dot Com is now vegan and the brand has finally entered Sephora. Whether it can keep growing without Weiss at the helm remains to be seen.

From CEW:

 

E.l.f. Acquires Naturium
BY AMY SYNNOTT | PUBLISHED AUGUST 29, 2023
 

E.l.f. is coming for your pores. And your arms, legs, and bottom, too.

On Tuesday, E.l.f. announced it would acquire white hot indie skin care brand Naturium. The $355 million cash and stock deal is the largest in E.l.f.โ€™s history and will move the disruptive Gen Z upstart one step closer to becoming the next beauty juggernaut. It will also solidify them as a major player in the rapidly evolving marketplace for โ€œcleanicalโ€ skincare.

 
 

โ€œWe believe Naturium joining E.l.f. Beauty, and complementing E.l.f. Skin and our existing brand portfolio presents a unique opportunity to significantly accelerate the potential we see in skin care,โ€ Tarang Amin, E.l.f. Beautyโ€™s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer told CEW. โ€œThis is expected to double our skin care presence to approximately 18%. With this acquisition, weโ€™re adding a distinct yet complementary brand that we expect to be accretive to both our growth profile and earnings.โ€

Created in 2019 by beauty incubator, the Center, with influencer founder Susan Yara, Naturium has been a breakout success on social media, where the hashtag #naturium currently has over 415+ million views. The brand, which leads with a no-nonsense, ingredients-first approach, has won favor among the dermatological community, men (40% of their users are male) and millennial consumers who do their skincare research.

Best-selling products include The Glow Getter Multi-Oil Hydrating Body Wash, Vitamin C Complex Serum, and Dew-Glow Moisturizer SPF 50. Net sales of Naturium grew at approximately +80% CAGR over the last two years. And approximately $90 million of net sales are expected this year.

E.l.f. first entered the skincare category in 2015. In 2020, it acquired clean skincare company W3II People and Alicia Keys skincare line, Keys Soulcare. In June of 2020, E.l.f. took their commitment to skincare one step farther, creating their fourth portfolio brand, E.l.f. Skin. The collection includes three separate segments: Blemish Breakthrough, Pure Skin, and Holy Hydration!

With Naturiumโ€™s expertise in clinically-effective, clean skincare formulation in both the face and bodycare category (an area E.l.f. skin currently only has modest offerings in) itโ€™s easy to see why Naturium was an appealing acquisition of E.l.f. which is one of the fastest growing skin care brands right now. In August, the brand raised their 2024 outlook after posting quarterly net sales growth of 76%, marking 18 consecutive quarters of more than 20% sales growth on average.

Asked if the E.l.f. has plans to acquire other brands, Amin was optimistic but refused to elaborate. โ€œWe have been transparent about our desire to pursue strategic extensions that can leverage our strengths and bring complement capabilities to E.l.f. and we have remained highly disciplined.โ€

โ€œWith efficacious products at accessible price points and a community first mindset, Naturium reminds me of where e.l.f. was when I became CEO over nine years ago,โ€ he said in a statement. โ€œNaturium demonstrates the same spirit, values and growth characteristics we find in E.l.f.โ€

โ€œI have admired E.l.f., and their deep commitment to being a different kind of beauty company, for years now, said Susan Yara, Naturiumโ€™s Founder, in a statement. They care about their community and their employees, which is truly meaningful to me, especially as a female founder. With our complementary missions and cultures, I know E.l.f. Beauty will be the ideal partner as we expand our reach and continue to make high performance skin care accessible for all.โ€

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@CookieGirl1 I've noticed this brand at Target and I think I had a decent impression of some of the formulations.  I'll have to look into it some more.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Bay Area, California based biotech company Amyris filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy about a week-and-a-half ago and looks like it will be selling its consumer brands. Amyris is the parent company of clean beauty brands such as Biossance, JVN, Rose, Inc. and Stripes.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Hmmm @itsfi can't say I was surprised by this development (that's all I can say ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿค).... I don't feel bad for the company nor for the consumer brands because at the end of the day they will be fine (restructuring / sold off to another company/companies). I feel bad for the people implicated & soon to be implicated in the job cuts & any future job cuts ๐Ÿ˜”.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@NahnomI read that there's been an increase in bankruptcy filings in the retail market, and the beauty space this year. The downtown area where I live is seeing many store closings and businesses leaving, at an alarming rate really, and with it, many are left jobless, as you noted. It's sad to see and yes, I, too, feel bad for those who will be without jobs. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Per trendmood

 

marcjacobs inked a licensing deal with Coty, which he previously only worked with on the fragrance portfolio.

Coty has just begun work on a Marc Jacobs prestige beauty line, which will be ready in around roughly two to three years.
