Founded by entrepreneur Matthias Metternich, Art of Sport was born to address the skin care needs of the modern athlete. Developed by leading skin care scientists and with insights from Art of Sport’s world-class athlete partners, the range includes deodorant, antiperspirant, hair and body wash, body bar, sunscreen and a soon-to-be released ultra-strength “Recovery Cream.”
“Everything from what athletes wear and consume to how they recover has continued to evolve,” said Metternich. “We didn’t see anyone transferring that same level of innovation and consideration into what athletes apply on their skin. By working with the best scientists and best athletes, we’ve created body and skin care products that can keep up with the performance needs of athletes at all levels.”
Five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant joined Metternich and Art of Sport co-founder Brian Lee, as a founding partner. Shortly after Bryant joined, the team partnered with other world-class athletes: 2016 World Series Champion and All-Star second baseman Javier Báez, pro surfer Sage Erickson, NBA MVP James Harden, World Champion motocross and supercross racer Ken Roczen, X-Games gold medalist Ryan Sheckler and NFL wide receiver Juju Smit-Schuster.
Art of Sport has drafted some well known names in cosmetic chemistry, too; lead scientists are Dr. Shekhar Mitra and Dr. Laurence Dryer.
