2021 Week 25: Beauty Launches Worth a Look

Published June 25, 2021
Published June 25, 2021

You guessed it ... another week, and more celebrities throw their hats into the beauty ring—but we also have a chic new science-backed addition to the personalized skincare category in Veracity.

Veracity: A new personal self-care experience based on testing key hormones and pH that affect skin’s current condition and, more broadly, overall health and balance. Veracity skincare delivers the cutting edge of scientifically driven clean beauty with transformative, innovative skincare solutions made to safely bring each unique complexion into optimal balance. The line is designed to be customized with dynamic treatment solutions tailored to consumers' unique biofactors. The brand is also shifting the perception and language around the relationship we have with our skin, saying, "As our lives change, our skin inevitably changes, too. We are used to thinking of these changes as cosmetic—problems to fix with spot treatments and serums. But they’re a reflection of what’s going on inside, sending important signals about our health." The Skin + Health test is priced at $149 with skincare products ranging from $55-$85.

Know Beauty: Vanessa Hudgens and Madison Beer take celebrity-backed beauty to a new level, joining forces with Dr. Karen Kagha, a Harvard-trained dermatologist, to build a science-first brand that takes the guesswork out of skincare with a Skin Diagnostic, Skin DNA Kit, and curated product assortment. Each product uses best-in-class, scientifically proven ingredients such as retinoids, AHAs, and BHAs and peptides to assist with immediate skin concerns, while working to prevent age-related changes that can occur across seven core genetic categories analyzed by the DNA Test. At launch, the Know Beauty range will allow for hundreds of unique skincare routines. Available DTC with products ranging from $20-$30 and the Skin Diagnostic, Skin DNA Kit at $95.

Treslúce Beauty: Becky G partnered with Madeby Collective to co-create a color brand with the aim of celebrating Latin heritage. Mexican artist Monica Loya designed the packaging drawing on inspiration from Talavera pottery and formulas include agave tequilana. The brand will focus on the eye category with eyeliners, eye shadow palette, makeup brushes, and false eyelashes ranging in price from $8 to $35.

Proudly: Following the relaunch of her haircare brand Flawless by Gabrielle Union, Gabrielle is developing a baby care line catering to deeper skin tones with her husband, Dwyane Wade, set to launch DTC later this year and in the mass channel in 2022. The business has received seed funding from Initial Capital and Forerunner Ventures.
