Carol's Daughter


Carol's Daughter

Carol's Daughter is a line of beauty products, including products for hair, skin, and hands, as well as fragrances. It was designed by Lisa Price. Price named the company in honor of her mother, Carol Price. Though the store has several locations, its products are available in hundreds of other stores, such as Nordstrom, and it has received much press coverage, including an appearance on "The Tyra Banks Show" [http://tyrashow.warnerbros.com/show_recaps/show_recap_fri61.html] and "Oprah".cite news

Development

Founder Lisa Price began working on the products for her line in the 1980s, when she was working on the set of "The Cosby Show". In her free time she concocted organic beauty products in her kitchen, including pure oils such as sweet almond, jojoba, and soy. Her experimentation eventually led to a mail-order and online business in 1993, followed by the first store opening in Brooklyn in 1999. [cite news

] During the fall of 2005, a second, flagship store opened on 125th Street in Harlem. Her product line is now carried by luxury cosmetics giant Sephora. About ten new stores are planned in the next few years, including at least three in shopping malls. Her planned mall stores are an unusual feat for a new business.cite news

The expansion would have been impossible without heavy investment. Record executive Steve Stoute led a group of investors in raising $10 million for the venture. Other investors include Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, Jay-Z, Andrew Farkas, Mary J. Blige, Jimmy Iovine, Tommy Mottola, and Thalía. The current spokeswomen for the line are Mary J. Blige [http://brownsista.com/mary-j-representing-carols-daughter/] and Jada Pinkett Smith [ [http://money.cnn.com/2005/05/18/news/newsmakers/cosmetics/ Will Smith, Jay-Z back beauty line] .
