Founded in a Vermont farm, the luxury skin care brand will boost Amorepacific's presence in Europe and America
Tata Harper pioneered the 'face to face' beauty trend
Korean beauty conglomerate Amorepacific has acquired US luxury skin care brand Tata Harper for an undisclosed sum.
The move will help the maker of Laneige and Innisfree expand its foothold in the western market.
Tata Harper, created by the namesake founder and former husband Henry Harper in 2010, was an early adopter of the 'farm to face' natural beauty movement.
"Henry and I founded the brand on our farm in Vermont in our quest to develop a portfolio of products which will deliver efficacious results and a luxury experience without having to compromise your health," said Harper.
"Our approach to formulation, including full control of manufacturing, has allowed us to pioneer the next generation of beauty."
Tata Harper is now sold in 25 online stores and 800 bricks-and-mortar outlets worldwide, including Sephora, Harrods and Selfridges.
Amorepacific described the acquisition as a move to expand its business in Europe and the Americas, while diversifying its reach in Asia.
“Tata Harper is a clean beauty brand instilled with the core values of healthy beauty – values that society and consumers are looking for today," added Jinpyo Lee, Chief Strategy Officer at Amorepacific Group.
"Fueled by Amorepacific’s top-notch R&D and P&L infrastructure, we expect Tata Harper will be able to significantly expand its footprint in the Western and Asian markets."
