Skinfix receives investment from Stride Consumer Partners

The Canadian 'cleanical' skin care brand has enjoyed 300% growth over the last year with the likes of its Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream

Skinfix, the 'clean' Canadian skin care brand, has received a minority investment from private equity company Stride Consumer Partners to continue building its growth.

Founded in 2014 by Amy Gordinier, the brand has tripled its growth over the last year with its range of cruelty-free, vegan and dermatologist-backed products that are designed to heal, replenish and maintain the skin barrier on both the face and body, including the best selling Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream.

Available exclusively at Sephora in the US, Canada and Australia as well as online, Skinfix will use the investment to further improve its e-commerce platform, as well as developing new products and testing practices and filling out its team.

Gordinier, Skinfix's founder and CEO, said: "We're thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Stride team and benefit from their deep and varied experience building timeless brands.

"As a white-space brand looking ahead to the future of science-led skin care innovation, we believe that Stride is the right partner to help us grow and realise the possibilities ahead.”

Counting the likes of Urban Decay, First Aid Beauty and Tatcha among its previous beauty partners, the investment will see Stride partners Nicole Fourgoux and Steve Berg join Skinfix's board of directors, furthering its mission to support female-led businesses, according to the company.

Fourgoux added: "Skinfix was on our list of brands to watch from the start because of its unique and powerful positioning in the space of 'cleanical' skin care.

“With a clear mission to improve skin barrier health and their addictive, clean and clinically performing formulas, the Skinfix team has built an amazing brand with great potential."
