Clinical skincare for people of color, launching in Sephora.

Lion Pose is making clinical skincare products for people of color, starting with a dark spot serum and sunscreen. We have a distribution contract with Sephora who forecasts $3M of sales in the first year. Cofounders Madhu and Nisha met at Harvard Business School and we previously grew an ecommerce business to $10M sales in one year. Skincare for people of color is a $9B US market opportunity, and clinical skincare is the fastest growing category in Sephora. Our safe and effective solutions, formulated with Harvard dermatologists, landed us a Sephora contract pre-launch, an extremely rare feat. And we just brought on an A-list celebrity as our third co-founder and investor (confidential until launch, to be shared verbally).
