Kate Somerville is adding to her skin care lineup with two new facial skin care and one body care product.
The first, CytoCell P299, Oil Free Anti-Wrinkle Serum, hits counters next week.
The key ingredient is P299, a proprietary stem-cell polypeptide intended to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Also included are marine algae and hyaluronic acid complexes, designed to moisturize the skin and restore skin’s capacity to retain moisture. It will retail for $95 for 1 oz.
Somerville will follow it up in August with Kateceuticals Restor8 Replenishing Serum. Billed as an antiaging powerhouse, its ingredients include a proprietary tripeptide blend said to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; hyaluronic acid to reduce the visible depth and volume of wrinkles; ceramines for deep hydration and blackberry leaf extract for its antioxidants and polyphenols. The serum will retail for $165 for 1 oz.
Body Rescue Cream is intended to combat signs of aging on the body. Its key ingredient is Advanced Matrixyl 3000, said to firm sagging skin and refine texture. As well, it contains shea butter and cupuaçu fruit for their deep moisturizing properties and botanical tea and ginger extracts for their calming and smoothing properties. It will retail for $45 for 5 oz.
The products will be carried in about 461 doors globally: 393 specialty store doors in the U.S., including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and Sephora, and 68 internationally, including outlets in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia. While executives declined comment on projected sales, industry sources estimated that the products would do about $5 million at retail in their first year on counter.
“The Kate Somerville consumer knows our products deliver results and our product sales reflect that,” said Michelle Taylor, chief executive officer of Kate Somerville. “All of our products utilize Smart Balance Technology, which combines the optimal level of active ingredients with soothing botanicals. This smart technology delivers the best results without any irritation.”

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
