OPULUS BEAUTY LABS announces the launch of Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus

Bainbridge Island, WA –News Direct– OPULUS Beauty Labs

OPULUS Beauty Labs, the Pioneer of Freshly Activated Beauty, Announces the Launch of its Retinol+ Starter System in Digital Flagships Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, Known as Top Destinations for Beauty, Fashion and Wellness luxury in the United States. This expansion represents the next steps in the distribution of OPULUS Beauty Labs into the luxury space.

“I am thrilled to partner with Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, as both partners offer the best retail programs, carefully selected luxury assortments, and exceptional service and standards,” said the founder of Saks. OPULUS Beauty Labs, Robb Akridge, Ph.D. (aka Dr. Robb), also known for co-inventing the game-changing Clarisonic. “These partnerships allow us to meet our customers where we know they are already shopping and provide them with an elevated experience from the time they shop through to use at home.”

OPULUS Beauty Labs invented and manufactures the patent-pending OPULUS activator and a unique cosmetic format called Opoule™ treatment. This duo, a novel device and individually dosed three-dimensional formulation, works together like a mini home lab to create high-potency, freshly prepared cosmetics in 100 seconds at the push of a button. The technology is so cutting-edge that TIME Magazine selected the brand’s first market introduction, the Retinol+ Starter System, as “Best Invention of 2021.” The Retinol+ Regimen delivers a gentle yet powerful result where skin looks rejuvenated, calm and restored, giving an overall younger appearance. With this system, consumers experience the benefits of retinol, while minimizing the redness or dryness often associated with retinol use.

“Saks & Neiman Marcus provide tactile experiences that connect customers to emerging brands. Just as we are reimagining beauty, they are redefining luxury shopping through engaging new digital services,” says Dr. Robb, “which is why this is the perfect step to take us beyond our direct channels to consumers.

OPULUS Activator™ and Opoule™ treatments

OPULUS Beauty Labs Retinol+ Starter System and Ramp-Up Night Cream Regimens 1, 2 and 3, with increasing concentrations of retinol, are available at both online retailers from May 2022. To support this launch, OPULUS Beauty Labs is working with its new business partners to deploy a robust marketing plan incorporating in-person events, seasonal presentations, digital promotions, and more.


OPULUS Beauty Labs was founded in 2019 by Dr. Robb, who pioneered the beauty device category with the launch of Clarisonic. The passionate team behind OPULUS Beauty Labs has over 100 years of collective experience, marrying the freedom and imagination of a tech start-up with the wisdom and credibility of the world’s most successful beauty brands. OPULUS Beauty Labs is a vertically integrated company with in-house R&D, cosmetic manufacturing and product assembly. The company is implementing the next stage of its business to expand distribution and provide customers with access to incredible innovations.

OPULUS Beauty Labs was launched in 2020 as the first and only brand in the market that offers skin care that is freshly activated at the time of application. The brand launched its award-winning Retinol+ Starter System, containing the first wearable cosmetic device, the Activator, and a new cosmetic format, the Opoule Treatment. The Activator (your cosmetic jar forever) transforms the Opoule into an optimally warmed cosmetic product, ready to be absorbed. By modifying its ingredients, a range of unique cosmetic products are possible, from skin care to hair care, ranging from serums to balms. In April 2022, OPULUS Beauty Labs demonstrated the flexibility of its technology by launching another innovative treatment system, the Glow Rituals Collection. Focusing on achieving radiant-looking skin for clients with different skin concerns, these three spa-worthy facial therapies are based on three different scientific processes of exfoliation: chemical peeling, enzyme activity and action mechanical. OPULUS Beauty Labs continues to reinvent the beauty market, offering customers exciting cutting-edge technology with proven results in an elegant format.
