September 26th, 2019 Natixis Partners advised Aliza Jabès, founder, CEO and majority shareholder of Nuxe Group on the selling process of the historical minority shareholders’s stake to the listed investment holding Sofina.

Founded in 1988, following the acquisition by Aliza Jabès and her partners of a Parisian laboratory specialized in cosmetic formulations, Nuxe has become, in 30 years, a leading brand of natural cosmetics thanks to its unique positioning and iconic products such as L’Huile Prodigieuse.

The brand, which has experienced strong growth, notably over the last fifteen years (approximately +20% per year), has significantly expanded its global footprint and is now established in 60 countries, distributed in about 30,000 points of sale and achieves +40% of its revenues out of France.

The Group has its own R&D capabilities and its own industrial facilities in France, as well as 100% proprietary formulations. These strengths allowed the Group to broaden its offer, covering today a wide range of products: anti-ageing, moisturizing face care, body care, sun care, perfumes, men care, etc.

The entry of Sofina, a leading investment firm, as a minority shareholder is an additional opportunity to accelerate growth, and notably internationally.
