Since its 2018 founding, The Inkey List has reportedly posted a 6x revenue increase over the past three years. Per the brand, on average, one Inkey List product is sold every four seconds. As a result, it has purportedly sold more than 50 million products worldwide.
"We are incredibly excited to welcome Stephanie into the Inkey family," said Laxton and Curry. "The brand has seen phenomenal growth over the last four and a half years, and we have ambitious plans to maintain this momentum by making skincare simple and accessible globally. Stephanie is an ideal fit for us, possessing the brand DNA, beauty industry, and commercial expertise necessary to continue Inkey's exponential growth."
"I am beyond excited to join Mark and Colette and their team at The Inkey List," said Michelman. "In a short time, Mark and Colette have built an incredibly strong brand that has carved out a unique space in the beauty industry. Their commitment to deliver high-performance products, bring simplicity and education to complex categories, and be a true partner to their consumers, puts them in a class by themselves. Even with all their accomplishments, this brand is just getting started. I look forward to partnering with Mark and Colette as we design The Inkey List's next growth phase."
