StriVectin has a new nighttime cocktail it hopes will lead to better skin.
The brand is set to launch StriVectin AR Advanced Retinol Night Treatment on its Web site later this month and in brick-and-mortar outlets in January.
Designed for women 40-plus who are seeking noticeable improvements in skin texture, clarity, radiance, firmness and fine lines, the product is powered by retinol and niacin.
“We’re calling this our first ‘midnight multitasker,’” said Jill Scalamandre, chief marketing officer at StriVectin. Scalamandre explained that the brand’s proprietary NIA-114 niacin molecule, which is said to stimulate DNA repair and strengthen the skin’s barrier, is teamed with retinol, said to encourage cell turnover and stimulate collagen production, improving the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines. Other key ingredients include collagen-boosting peptides and sodium hyaluronate to help hydrate skin and improve its barrier function. “Retinol is the dermatological gold standard,” continued Scalamandre. “Niacin is a catalyst of retinol, and it doubles the result of retinol. Our proprietary NIA-114 molecule keeps these retinol from irritating the skin.”
The product is “an incremental opportunity for us to play in night category and to increase penetration in current accounts,” said Scalamandre. “Our brand’s current architecture is problem-solution — for instance, getting even-toned skin. What we don’t have is something for a woman with multiple issues — until now.” The product will retail for $109 for 1.7 oz. Retailers include department and specialty stores and QVC.
Globally, the product will be in about 4,500 doors. Advertising will begin in weekly magazines in January and in February fashion, beauty and lifestyle monthlies.
While Scalamandre refused to discuss sales projections, industry sources estimated the new product could do as much at $15 million globally in its first year on counter. The brand’s total size is estimated at about $160 million at retail globally.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
