Derma E Joins Topix Pharmaceuticals Portfolio of Brands

Derma E is joining the Topix family of brands. Topix Pharmaceuticals, a provider of micro-branded and branded skincare products, has announced its acquisition of the natural skincare brand. The partnership will provide the vegan skincare brand with additional resources to support its growth while expanding the Topix portfolio of brands, and furthering the Topix commitment of entering the natural skincare category.

“We are thrilled to welcome Derma E into the Topix family,” said Andre Moura, managing director at New Mountain Capital and chairman of the Topix board of directors. “Topix is a leader in the dermatologist market with differentiated innovation and FDA-certified manufacturing capabilities. We look forward to supporting Derma E and its customers with these resources, and believe the partnership will create multiple new avenues of long-term growth for both Derma E and the broader Topix business.”

Following the acquisition, Derma E will continue to operate in Simi Valley, CA, and will continue to develop its collection of clinically supported and cruelty-free skincare products. Over the last 35 years, Derma E has been growing as a trailblazing name in the eco-ethical skincare industry.
