BEAUTY: Dieux Skin, the DTC skincare brand that’s popped off online, is launching at Sephora. Celeb hair stylist Jen Atkin has a new hair tool brand launching in Sephora, too.

TV: Major! Our own Business Bestie member, Kristyn Rose Berland, the founder of Crate Away, is starring on Side Hustlers. It’s a new show by Reese Witherspoon’s production co., Hello Sunshine’s. Emme Grede (co-founder of Good American) and Ashley Graham are judges. Kristyn’s coming on the Female Founder World podcast soon to talk us through the details.

MONEY: The consumer-focused private equity firm Encore Consumers Capital raised a $258M fund. They currently back brands we love like Love Wellness, Supergoop, and Butter London. If you’re doing $10M+ in revenue and looking for funding, think about reaching out

CELEBS: Beyonce’s haircare line, Cécred, is live after months of teasing. It’s stacked with a Clarifying Shampoo and Scalp Scrub, a Moisture Sealing Lotion, a Nourishing Hair Oil and a Reconstructing Treatment Mask with a patent-pending technology. The packaging is gorgeous, too, ofc.

TikTok’s it-girl Alix Earle has become the first ever face of Hero Cosmetics. After sharing her acne journey with her 10M+ followers, this feels like a strong fit.

SUPERBOWL: A creator is alleging Cetaphil stole the plotline for the brand’s Superbowl ad from their own content series—it shows of a daddy-daughter duo very similar to videos the creator had posted. Cetaphil responded saying the ad was "an original creation and without seeing Sharon's TikTok content.”  



IRL: International Women’s Day Party

5:30pm-6:30pm / 7 March / Penthouse on Rivington, New York, NY

The Female Founder World annual IWD party is a place to refill your tank, meet your Business Besties, and hear from the most inspiring entrepreneurs on the planet. We have Knix founder Joanna Griffiths (one of the most successful founders in the world) and Ceremonia founder Babba Rivera joining a panel, a non-alc bar, a Ceremonia brand activation, and a room filled with the entrepreneurial people you need to meet. It’s the night before International Women’s Day, and it’s happening in NYC!
