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.

Dr Jart’s UK Instagram page

Why have Estée Lauder choosen to re launch Dr Jart in the UK? Well, skincare is a resistant industry and during the pandemic, it’s continued to grow.

This Cosmetic’s Business article even suggested that more US women are using skin care products compared to 12 months ago.

The reason’s for this vary. People aren’t going out, so need less make-up. They want use this time to look after their skin. Consumers are more invested in multipurpose products. They want to use products that are good for them.

Dr Jart is well positioned to take the lead for Estée Lauder in this category because it has always been an innovative brand. With sales shifting online, Dr Jart has managed to evolve just as quickly.

The brand adopted this new normal by working with 3D digital artist Rek0de, who uses AR to blend real and virtual worlds.

Using a QR code on site and packaging, users scan using a smartphone, opens a portal of a 360-degree view of London’s Piccadilly Circus.

The QR codes also allow the user to learn a plethora of information about each product. Innovation and education is clearly at the heart of this brand, this new digital-based immersion is exactly the reinvigoration the beauty industry has needed for a long time.
