The Power of Collaboration Over Competition

Thu, May 19, 2022 · 2:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

The beauty sector has never been more competitive. As an industry we often talk about competitors but we rarely talk about alliances. The past decade has given rise to founder-driven indie brands that have ushered in a new era of collaboration departing from the super-secretive business practices of the past. We're seeing a new trend emerge where founders are navigating the fine line between collaboration and competition. We'll sit down with three founders that believe the power of rivals joining forces should not be underestimated.

Bloomeffects Founder + CEO
Bloomeffects, the first skincare brand to harness the previously unknown hydrating and regenerative properties of the tulip, was founded in 2019 by Kim van Haaster. Kim always dreamed of having her own skincare range, and even with years of experience in the New York beauty industry, she never found a truly unique, pure, and natural ingredient that provided effective results…until she moved to the Netherlands for love! Her now husband and partner, a 4th generation tulip farmer, provided a beautiful yet simple ingredient to enrich her skincare concept – his globally renowned award-winning royal tulips. Tapping into one of the world’s most glorious natural resources – Holland’s world-renowned tulips – Bloomeffects delivers exceptionally authentic, wildly effective, and clean skincare. All products are formulated with the Bloomeffects Proprietary Dutch Tulip Complex – rich in antioxidants, natural moisturizing factors, and amino acids for softer, smoother, and glowingly hydrated skin. In pursuit of clean beauty, Bloomeffects is also committed to sustainability through environmentally friendly and responsible processes in all elements of development and production, including circular farming practices and the upcycling of tulip bulbs – making the Bloomeffects experience beautiful from the inside out.
