Supergoop! and investment firm Blackstone announced new investors. The new group hails from the realms of business, media and entertainmen: Hugh Jackman, Jenna Lyons and Michelle Wie; female entrepreneurs from within Blackstone’s portfolio, including Sara Blakely (founder of Spanx) and Whitney Wolfe Herd (founder and CEO of Bumble) among others; and Main Street Advisors and the I Promise School, as well as G9 Ventures, founded by Amy Griffin, and SC Holdings.
Supergoop! develops dermatologist-approved SPF products with clean ingredients that “feel good” to wear, making it easier to incorporate daily sun protection into everyday routines, outlines the company.
Holly Thaggard, a former teacher and skincare industry pioneer, founded Supergoop! when her close friend was diagnosed with skin cancer at a young age.
“We are grateful to welcome this inspiring group of investors to Supergoop! and for all of the support, Blackstone has shown our business. We’re humbled by their move to join our mission of encouraging people worldwide to protect their skin and create new daily routines and habits,” adds Thaggard.
