The Los Angeles-based, international skin care brand, is known for delivering transformative results through both products and Clinic treatments. Founded in 2004, Kate Somerville is a part of Unilever’s prestige beauty portfolio of global brands.
The partnership with Plastic Oceans Foundation comes as Unilever is rolling out a plan to implement measures that will move them toward being a greener and more sustainable company.
“Healing people’s skin every day came out of the goodness of my heart, but I realized that what I was creating may be harming the ocean,” said Kate Somerville, founder of the brand. “That broke the link for me. I was part of the problem and now we need to solve this problem. That’s what we’re going to do at Kate Somerville. We’re going to rethink plastic, but we’re also going to help our industry and the families around us rethink plastic. A big part of that effort comes through this partnership and support of the Plastic Oceans Foundation.”
