Unilever Expands in Skin Care with Kate Somerville Acquisition

Unilever added Kate Somerville Skincare LLC to its portfolio of personal care brands. The brand was founded in Los Angeles. It is distributed in the United States, with a growing presence in Asia.

Active Balance Technology is one of Kate Somerville’s key technologies, combining advanced active ingredients with natural botanicals.

“The most photographed faces in Hollywood trust Kate Somerville Skincare for its high-quality ingredients, proven results and touch of glamour. It is a highly differentiated brand that is well placed in the dermocosmetic segment of the skin care category,” noted Vasiliki Petrou, Unilever SVP Prestige Brands.

Unilever finds global growth potential in Kate Somerville, and looks to expand it into more countries in the near future. Somerville, the brands namesake, looks forward to growing the brand in partnership with Unilever.

“Our treatments, such as Exfolikate and Dermal Quench, have become tried-and-true customer favorites,” commented Sommerville. “Unilever shares our commitment to quality, innovation and bringing consumers the best possible products. Its scale and long history building iconic brands makes Unilever the perfect partner in the next stage of our journey and I’m confident it will take Kate Somerville Skincare to even greater heights.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
