Trilogy Gets the Kate Effect with Royal Using Skincare
Sisters Catherine de Groot and Sarah Gibbs may have started small, establishing their business from their father’s Upper Hutt shed in 2002, but they are now experiencing big success after their beauty product brand Trilogy was given the tick of approval by the Duchess of Cambridge.
Trilogy’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is said to be an essential in Kate Middleton’s make up bag and the secret to her flawless skin; the “Kate Effect” means the business’ sales are soaring.
Trilogy’s international spokeswoman Lisa Wilson said the company was “absolutely over the moon”.
“Celebrity endorsements of this scale can be transformational for a company,” Wilson said.
Gibbs was a chartered accountant and De Groot a former beauty journalist when the pair began Trilogy with a shared vision to create a line of anti-aging products. Their innovative company was inspired by their discovery of the benefits of rosehip oil to correct fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and scars.
Models Briton David Gandy and Australian Miranda Kerr have also praised the oil.
