Memebox joins forces with Sephora on cosmetics brand

Sept 15,2018
Local beauty company Memebox launched Kaja, a cosmetics brand codeveloped with global industry giant Sephora, on Thursday.

The launch took place in Manhattan, New York. The brand mainly offers color cosmetics - a significant step forward in the K-beauty trend in the United States where consumers mainly only use skin care products from Korean companies.

Kaja’s products including foundation were made to have a wider color variation to match different skin tones, a policy that is not often found in Korean-based cosmetics brands.

“Our collaboration with Sephora opened a new chapter in which K-beauty jumps over its limits and releases products that meet demands close to [U.S.] consumers,” said Memebox CEO and founder Dino Ha in a press release, Friday.

Kaja launched with 47 products which will start selling at Sephora’s branches in the United States. Memebox said it plans to add new items every two months.
