Darphin announces withdrawal from UK spa market

French spa skincare brand Darphin is pulling out of spas in the UK and Ireland. 

The brand is to maintain its presence in the retail market but is pulling out of spas and salons and has begun the process of informing its accounts.

A Darphin spokesperson told WSW sister title Professional Beauty: “In today’s complex and rapidly changing prestige beauty environment, Darphin UK & Ireland has made the strategic decision to close the spa and salon arm of the business. This has been a very difficult decision to reach given the spa history of the brand. Darphin would like to thank all of our partners for their support over the years.”

Positioned at the premium end of the market, Darphin has a comprehensive range of skincare and select body and sun care products, plus a menu of signature treatments.
