Consumer Beauty and Aesthetics

Evolving as rapidly as the ever-changing concept of beauty, the consumer beauty and aesthetics industry encompasses far more than traditional cosmetics.

The consumer beauty and aesthetics industry has expanded to include nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals, beauty-focused technology devices and services, and innovative personal care products. The industry players range from nimble, disruptive entrepreneurs to multi-national thought leaders, focusing on innovation, manufacturing, marketing, and delivery in transparent, sustainable, inclusive, and personalized ways.

Our global Consumer Beauty and Aesthetics group has the depth and breadth of interdisciplinary legal experience to meet the growing needs of these companies on a global level, while helping clients explore cross-sector opportunities. Our team has long-standing relationships and a deep understanding of the evolving industry, and brings perspectives from public relations, communications, fashion, media, technology, and retail.
