Shiseido Europe, S.A., a subsidiary of Japanese beauty conglomerate Shiseido Company Limited, will acquire the London-based microbiome skin care brand. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Gallinée will get access to Shiseido’s resources and network, while Shiseido will expand its portfolio to include increasingly buzzy microbiome-centred skin care, which targets the ecosystem of fungi and bacteria that live on the skin’s surface. Gallinée founder Marie Drago will join Shiseido’s EMEA team, and serve as chief creative officer of Gallinée.
