Leading science-driven luxury skincare brand U Beauty announces a strategic investment from Sandbridge Capital.
Singularly blending science and sustainability, U Beauty embodies the future of luxury skincare. Featuring a tightly edited suite of award-winning products made in Italy, U Beauty’s groundbreaking formulas are as multitasking as they are effective. Driven by the brand’s double-patent-pending SIREN Capsule Technology, they feature a revolutionary system that delivers low-level actives with breakthrough efficacy. Inspired by precision medicine, U Beauty approaches skincare differently from others in the industry. Other brands distribute active ingredients all over the skin unnecessarily, while U Beauty’s proprietary technology targets areas with high levels of damage, causing free radicals to neutralize only those areas while simultaneously preserving healthy skin. The result is visible improvement for both short and long-term skin health.
Tina CraigU Beauty’s Founder and Chief Creative Officer, expressed her excitement about the partnership: “For a founder, finding the right growth partner is a grueling process. There’s typically some aspect of the conversation that makes you feel particularly protective of your brand. But, from our very first conversation with Ken and his team, there was a natural affinity – personal, professional, and strategic – between U Beauty and Sandbridge that made our partnership feel like an inevitability. Of course, their stellar track record and roster of blue-chip advisors appealed to us. Both companies also share a fundamental perspective that there are no shortcuts to skillful long-term brand-building – and Sandbridge possesses the expertise, wherewithal, and vision to help propel U Beauty to a bigger, brighter future.”
Katie BorgheseU Beauty’s Founder and Chief Marketing Officer, delivered an equally enthusiastic sentiment: “Not only does Sandbridge have respect for brand equity and value the individuals driving the company, we are intrinsically aligned on U Beauty’s vision, mission, and strategy. With unyielding discipline, we maintain a focus on exceptional products, launching only when the formula is just right, and the product offers real value innovation. We want to break through existing conventions within the skincare industry and create substantial change, and with this new partnership, our goals will undoubtedly be realized.“
Ken SuslowSandbridge Founder and Managing Partner, added: “U Beauty is compellingly positioned at the intersection of where luxury beauty meets science-driven efficacy in support of its elevated skincare solutions. We are super excited to partner with Tina, Katie, and their highly impressive team as the company redefines performance skincare with their continued breakthrough product innovation. U Beauty is one of those rare mission driven brands that we have had the good fortune to partner with over the years, with its authentically modern clean beauty approach and importantly differentiated brand positioning. We are excited to contribute our experience in helping to build enduringly successful global brands in support of U Beauty’s demonstrably strong foundation.“
