Clean beauty brand Beautycounter Founder Gregg Renfrew has left the company.
Beautycounter, based in the US, was founded by Renfrew in 2011 and launched in 2013. The brand is sold online, in brick-and-mortar, through partnerships and via independent sellers across North America.
Last year, Beautycounter named Marc Rey as CEO while Renfrew became the company’s Executive Chair and Chief Brand Officer. In 2021, global investment firm The Carlyle Group acquired a majority stake in Beautycounter, valuing the brand at $1bn.
