ELSI Beauty is partnering with Sekhmet Ventures, a venture capital firm, to help fund and launch its personalized product platform for sensitive skin.
ELSI Beauty was founded by skin pharmacologist Dr. Elsa Jungman. The "clean" skincare line is focused on the microbiome. Sekhmet Ventures has provided seed capital and strategic counsel to ensure ELSI's future platform services as many customers as possible.
The new platform will assess data on a customer's skin profile, hormonal changes, and environment to create a tailored "subscription box" of products, including moisturizers and cleansers.
Earlier this year, ELSI Beauty debuted its first product, Let's Start Over Super Moisturizing Serum, a three-ingredient moisturizing and soothing face oil for normal-dry skin types.
Barbara Paldus, founding partner, Sekhmet Ventures, says, "ELSI Beauty understands that the future of skincare is grounded in robust science...We're excited to help ELSI Beauty build its flagship, personalized product platform and look forward to introducing customers to its superb product line."
Jungman adds, "Barbara and the Sekhmet Ventures team quickly stood out as ideal partners in the wellness and skincare space, demonstrating a clear passion in the science and process behind ELSI's products. Success in any market requires both capital, sound strategic counsel and a robust network of experts, and Sekhmet Ventures is a valued provider of all."
