Sam’s Club, the nation’s second-largest club chain — behind Costco — has partnered with a skin care firm to offer dermatological-grade, all-natural formulas in an unprecedented merchandising system for the retailer.
This month, 150 Sam’s Club stores nationwide began selling Sophyto, a two-year-old skin care brand founded by Karen Sinclair Drake, who now lives in Naples, Fla. Up until now, Sophyto, which bears a seal by the U.K.’s Soil Association, (where Sinclair Drake founded the line) had been sold in 200 medi-spas and dermatologist offices globally. But through a mutual friend, Sinclair Drake was introduced to members of Sam’s Club’s buying team, and the line’s destiny took on a new life.
