A well-established beauty brand is currently undergoing a transformation phase to reimagine themselves as a brand of tomorrow. They are moving from a traditional retail brand to become a lifestyle-led, digital-first modern British beauty brand putting participation and connection at the centre of everything they do. They are also retargeting to a younger demographic.
They explore the world to craft distinctive beauty experiences driven by the belief that connection – to themselves, to others and to the world – is the heart of beauty.
They are curious and enthusiastic and want to learn from the world. In making connections, they create the kind of complete beauty that is not only about what they look like, but how they grow in body, spirit, mind and life.
Their new website launches at the beginning of May, and with this comes an emphasis on editorial content to move away from traditional product-focused eCommerce and towards a more experience-based participatory platform.
They stand for Exploration for Growth.
