Luna Daily secures investment from Unilever Ventures to expand women’s wellness mission

Luna Daily, the microbiome-balancing body care brand has announced new investment partner Unilever Ventures, to support funding of the brand’s product range expansion.

This investment comes alongside follow-on investment from existing partners, Redrice Ventures and Joyance Partners as well as new angel investors Michelle Kennedy (Founder, Peanut), Aaron Chatterley (Co-Founder, Feelunique, Indu), Jane Henderson (Chairman of Beauty & Wellness, Mintel), and Taos Edmondson (dmg ventures, Focal), to continue furthering the brand’s mission to cater to all ages and stages of womanhood.

The investment announcement follows the news that Luna Daily, founded by beauty-industry veteran Katy Cottam, saw a +1000% YoY increase in sales in 2023. The brand continues to innovate in the women’s body care space, with its recent entry into the motherhood category that supports women’s bodies through pregnancy, post-birth and beyond. The collection launched last week in Boots, Cult Beauty and Sephora.

The collection has been developed with the Luna Daily Medical Collective of Dermatologists, Gynaecologists and a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist and includes six clinically tested, performance-led products to support women’s bodies through pregnancy, post-birth and beyond, that transform routine daily care into desirable rituals.

“I’m thrilled to announce Unilever Ventures as our newest investment partner. The collaboration will bring their unparalleled global expertise and resources, at such an exciting time for Luna Daily’s growth. This collaboration feels incredibly organic, as we have been in conversations with Unilever Ventures since the inception of Luna Daily. Their support of our vision to cater to all ages & stages of womanhood, including our newest category of motherhood, made this the perfect time to begin our partnership,” said Katy Cottam, Founder of Luna Daily.

“We are excited by how Katy has elevated the consumer experience of body wash and care with her microbiome balancing formulations for all skin. She used her own experience to create an offering that cares for women’s bodies in their entirety and for all stages of womanhood. We think that is a powerful and empowering idea. Daily routines have now been transformed into desirable rituals,” said Anna Ohlsson-Baskerville at Unilever Ventures.
