After having acquired luxury fragrance brand Le Labo, the Estée Lauder group has announced the buy out of another niche brand, Rodin olio lusso, a luxury skin care brand founded by New York stylist Linda Rodin. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Founded in 2007, Rodin olio lusso provides a highly selective line of premium, sensorial products. “Rodin olio lusso has unique positioning in the high-growth subcategory of skin care oils, and a devoted following of fashion and beauty connoisseurs around the world,” said Estée Lauder.
The brand is currently sold in select high-end, trend-setting boutiques and specialty-retail channels, including Barney’s, Colette and Liberty.
The centerpiece of Rodin olio lusso is The Luxury Face Oil, which is mixed from a combination of eleven essential oils derived from flowers and botanicals.
