Hero Cosmetics, Inc., a NYC-based leader in next-generation functional skincare, received a minority growth investment from Aria Growth Partners.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate continued growth, product innovation and expanded distribution of its skincare products.
Co-founded in 2017 by Ju Rhyu, Dwight Lee and Andrew Lee, Hero Cosmetics is a functional skincare brand focused on acne breakouts. Since launching in 2017 its Mighty Patch acne patches, the company has grown to offer customizable toolkits that span the skin’s entire healing journey, from start to finish.
Hero products including its Mighty Patch line can now be found nationwide at Target, Ulta, CVS, Amazon, Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters and at herocosmetics.us.
Later this month, the company will launch Clear Collective, a 3-step blemish prevention system targeting the root causes of acne and blemishes. The line will be available exclusively at Target and on the brand’s own website.
