Comments: Rodan + Fields, LLC, which was founded by Stamford-trained dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, was ranked the No. 1 skin care brand in the US and North America in 2018 by Euromonitor International Ltd. In addition, merely two years after the brand’s launch in Australia, the company’s second global market after Canada, Rodan + Fields was ranked as the fastest-growing skin care brand in Australia in 2018.
“We’re excited to be recognized in so many great categories by Euromonitor but what really inspires us is seeing our founders’ vision come to life and giving people healthy skin and the confidence that goes with it,” said Diane Dietz, president and chief executive officer.
In February, the company announced the launch of Spotless, a patent-pending teen and young adult acne solution. Spotless features a BPO2 technology that leverages benzoyl peroxide in a groundbreaking new liquid form to get through the skin’s stubborn biofilms, helping to bring the microbiome inside the pores back to balance and effectively combat the entire acne cycle. The company has also updated its Unblemish Regimen, designed to address adult acne, as well as the visible signs of aging, with new formulas that feature benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
At the Society for Investigative Dermatology’s 77th Annual Meeting held in Chicago, Rodan + Fields presented three scientific posters highlighting work developed by Drs. Rodan and Fields, and a team of scientists, on skin renewal and skin pigmentation. They also showcased the company’s newly launched Concept-to-Commerce portal, for innovation and collaboration, which enables individual inventors and companies to submit ideas for new products and technologies to be developed in partnership with Rodan + Fields, underscoring the company’s focus of fueling innovations in skincare.
“We have been learning more and more about how the skin works and how it interacts with the environment and novel technologies,” said Dr. Timothy Falla, chief scientific officer. “We hope this research will lead to further novel innovations in skin care providing demonstrable benefit to those who use our products.”
On June 21, Rodan + Fields donated $1 for each makeup-free selfie shared with #RFGoNaked to its nonprofit, Prescription for Change Foundation, to fund educational and leadership programs for students around the world. It was the fifth year of #RFGoNaked Day. Last year, the event generated more than 500,000 makeup-free selfies and raised $561,000 for youth.
“Our $1 million goal is not just a number—it is about changing the lives of young people. It is about supporting youth and having an influence on these students becoming leaders in their communities,” said Amnon Rodan, chairman of Rodan + Fields.
