Since launching in 2019, Iris&Romeo has undergone tremendous growth. In 2022 alone, the brand experienced triple-digit growth, which was fueled by a loyal customer base and highly-anticipated product launches, such as its award-winning Weekend Skin SPF 50 + Vitamin C + Glow, and in 2023 is expecting a triple-digit sales increase YoY accelerated by direct-to-consumer and retail expansion. In Fall 2022, Iris&Romeo completed a successful capital raise with continued support and investment by lead investor BrandProject and Newbound Ventures. With growth being a major focus in 2023, Iris&Romeo will likewise be investing in the company’s product innovation pipeline, continuing to bring one-of-a-kind hybrid products to the forefront.
