Kline has flagged Glow Recipe as a possible big-money acquisition target.

A great new analysis from Kline outlines three brands that could represent future billion-dollar buyouts: Glow Recipe, Ilia Beauty and Prose. Per Kline, "In identifying M&A candidates, we look at brands that have registered strong increases from their date of launch, have outpaced beauty industry growth, and have found ways to innovate while maintaining brand premise and origin story."

Previous candidates on the Kline list have included Drunk Elephant, which was acquired by Shiseido, and The Ordinary (Deciem), which has been acquired by Estée Lauder.
