Kristals Cosmetics eyes Canada for expansion

January 14, 2020

Miami Beach-based luxury cosmetics and skincare brand Kristals Cosmetics is growing around the globe and plans to open several locations in Canada. 
Owned by leading private label cosmetics manufacturer and distributor, UHI Cosmetics, Kristals is part of the same innovative minds behind marquee brands Deep Sea and Adore Cosmetics.
Florida-based UHI launched in January 2001, specializing high-end luxury beauty products and devices. In addition to its own network of branded retail stores, its products can be found in high-end retailers, spas and professional treatment centres around the globe.
UHI introduced the Kristals Cosmetics line of skincare products in 2015. The brand “combines the healing properties of precious gemstones with the latest anti-aging technologies to provide some of the most powerful and holistic skincare products and treatments in the market to date.”
With bio-energized formulas inspired by ancient and holistic traditions, Kristals quickly grew in popularity, garnering the attention of influencers and celebrities like Kylie Jenner, who praise the beautifying powers of crystals as part of their skincare regime.
UHI is known for the research it brings to the world of skincare. The Kristals line involves “concentrations of precious and semiprecious gemstones and metals known to create protective fields around the body” and blends them with powerful botanicals, naturally effective herbal essences and oils, for the best in skincare.
The brand’s top-selling products include, the Rock Crystal Refining Moisturizer, the Sapphire Retinol Firming and Lifting Eye Cream and the Amber Multivitamin Brightening Serum.
In response to its growing popularity, in recent years, UHI has opened several Kristals Cosmetic stores in prominent locations across North America, Asia and Europe. 
As part of this growth strategy, in November, the company opened a flagship store at the newly renovated guitar-shaped Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fl.
“We are proud to have a presence in one of the most iconic casinos in the world and excited to continue our expansion within the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel portfolio. Our skincare store will bring a one-of-a-kind luxurious shopping experience to all of the property’s visitors,” Shay Segev, president and CEO of UHI, said at the time.
The company credits the success of the brand to its retail stores, which are designed to host valuable in-store product demonstrations that show clients firsthand the direct results of Kristals’ unique formulations. The company’s modern store design has a decidedly high-end aura. Spaces are encased in glass with ambient lighting and a luxurious feel that elevates the shopping experience.
The global beauty industry is experiencing tremendous growth and UHI’s Kristals brand is at the forefront, with plans to open expand around the globe, including here in Canada. Markets of interest span British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
