Estée Lauder Relaunches Dr Jart+ In The Uk

Beauty giant, Estée Lauder, bought Dr Jart+ in 2019 as part of a $1.1 billion deal for Have & Be Co. Since then it’s contributed a great deal to company’s skincare category growth, contributing 7 percent to the second quarter of 2020.

This acquisition marked Estée Lauder’s first Asian Beauty Brand purchase and while some claim the K-beauty boom peaked in 2019, Estée Lauder are hoping to reinforce it’s popularity by relaunching post covid.

Vogue Business reported, Dr. Jart+ will start in the UK and, if successful, similar initiatives will follow in the EU and the US.
