STOCK TAKE: Dermalogica took to print this week to voice its displeasure at health-and-beauty retailer Boots selling its products. The skin care brand ran an advertisement in a British newspaper stating Boots is not one of its authorized stockists.

“Seven thousand authorized stockists in the U.K. and Ireland recommend Dermalogica skin care products through professional skin therapists,” the ad stated. “Boots is not one of these. The products sold by Boots are not supplied by Dermalogica. The origin and authenticity of these products is unknown.” A spokeswoman for Dermalogica said the brand is consulting with legal counsel on the matter. “We do stock Dermalogica products in a small number of our stores and on so as to offer our customers the most comprehensive range of skin care products on the high street,” a spokeswoman for Boots said. “Buying product via other reputable suppliers is legal. However, it is our preference to deal with the brand owners [directly] where possible. We are keen to forge a relationship with Dermalogica, however, so far our attempts have not been reciprocated.”

POWER OF TWO: Korres’ Manhattan flagship is making space for a roommate, Studio BeautyMix. The West Coast-based, indie beauty retailer is taking over half of Korres’ 1,100-square-foot store, located at 110 Wooster Street in SoHo. The shared-store format is slated to open Oct. 15. Studio BeautyMix’s assortment will feature its homegrown brands, including Burn candles, a full Memoire Liquide Bespoke Perfumery and a Studio Secrets area, which spotlights hard-to-find beauty items deemed cult favorites, said founder and creative director Robin Coe-Hutshing.
