Dr. Barabara Sturm is allegedly mulling a potential sale of the business.

The luxury skin care brand’s eponymous owner has reportedly consulted investment bank RBC on the business’ current options, industry sources have claimed.

Sturm, who is an aesthetics and orthopaedics specialist, founded the Germany-based business in 2014, with its initial product line focused on targeting skin inflammation.

Its hero products include the brand’s Enzyme Cleanser and Glow Drops, and in 2016 the brand also launched its Darker Skin Tones Collection for melanin-rich skins.

The brand also runs a chain of boutique spas located in the US, Germany and London.

Each space offers a variety of skin care treatments, including drip hydration IV therapies, Morpheus8 and the exoso-metic facial.

The sale rumours come after media mogul and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey invested an undisclosed sum into the Dr. Barbara Sturm skin care label in May 2023.

Winfrey revealed she had approached Sturm directly with an offer, having been introduced to the brand by fellow celebrity fan Stella McCartney.

Cosmetics Business has reached out to the beauty brand for comment.
