The Dream Bigger Podcast

Nov 26, 2019

On today's episode I'm chatting with Nicola Kilner. Nicola is the co-founder and CEO of Deciem. Deciem is an umbrella brand, under which there are a number of wildly popular skincare brands, including cult favourite, The Ordinary.

Nicola discusses her experience launching a radically different brand. Deciem launched with 10 skincare brands and continues to expand, launching new brands, and discontinuing others, which Nicola discusses. She also answers my biggest question: why The Ordinary products are priced so low, if they’re actually effective, and how all the brands under Deciem are so different. Nicola also discusses how Estee Lauder came to be a minority shareholder, how she dealt with tragedy when her Co-founder and former CEO of Deciem, Brandon Truaxe passed away, and successfully leading such a large team. This episode is a lesson in entrepreneurship which I’m sure you’ll all enjoy.
