Comments: Privately-held Rodan + Fields doesn’t reveal sales figures, but Happi estimates sales were $1.4 billion last year. R+F sells its skin care lotions, serums and devices in the US, Canada and Australia. Pre-COVID-19, the company planned to enter Japan in 2020. The new Deep Pore Cleansing MD System enables users to pull blackheads and debris out of their pores to reveal a clearer, healthier and more radiant-looking complexion after just one use, according to the company. The $260 tool is designed for use with Rodan + Fields Pore Prep Solution, which contains glycerin, salicylic acid and lactic acid. Together, they lift oils, dead skin cells and impurities to reduce breakouts and minimize pore size.
When it enters Japan, Rodan + Fields will offer products designed exclusively for the Japanese market.
“We are looking forward to the opportunity to enter this important market and bring our innovative, regimen-based skincare brand and business proposition to Japan,” said Diane Dietz, president and CEO. “Our brand heritage resides in giving women life changing skin care through the highest quality products and it makes Japan a natural next step as we expand Rodan + Fields’ global footprint.”
Rodan + Fields’ team of scientists and innovators spent five years developing skin care regimens and formulas tailored specifically for Japan where they underwent clinical testing to ensure their efficacy.
“The best skin of your life has no borders; as dermatologists, we understand the universal importance of healthy, beautiful skin and believe our innovative solutions made specifically for this market are a strong fit for Japan, one of the world’s most sophisticated skin care markets,” said Dr. Katie Rodan, co-founder of Rodan + Fields.
“After five years of intensive research and product testing in Japan, we are bringing life-changing skin care and the confidence it inspires to the discerning Japanese market,” added Dr. Kathy Fields, co-founder of Rodan + Fields.
In keeping with its commitment to Do Good in the communities it serves, Rodan + Fields’ Prescription for Change Foundation is partnering with Kids’ Door, which is dedicated to helping young people in Japan succeed in school and in life. This effort will expand Kids’ Door programs to reach 3,000 more high school students.
