London-based start-up GetHarley is helping consumers get healthier skin with its global online gateway to ‘world-class clinicians’ and medical grade skincare products. It matches customers with its 1000+ growing network of clinicians to offer skin consultations hosted on the GetHarley platform.
Founded by Charmaine Chow, GetHarley is tapping into the $60 billion global market for medical grade products and aesthetic treatments continuing to grow at 13% year-on-year.
“GetHarley is a quality champion and partner for both the clinics and the consumer,” says Danny Rimer, Board Member and Partner of Index Ventures. “People are now incredibly savvy about what they’re buying – especially at a time of economic scarcity, when they want their money to be channelled into meaningful purchases. They rightly want brands and experiences that are transparent, authentic and can deliver a tailored service. GetHarley meets all these criteria and more, and we’re incredibly excited to partner with them.”
Previous to this funding GetHarley had raised a total of $15 million in funding over 2 rounds. Its latest funding was raised on 1st April 2021 from a Series A round.
“The skincare industry is overflowing with false claims, celebrity marketing and thousands upon thousands of choices about how to care for your skin,” says Charmaine Chow, CEO and founder of GetHarley. “You end up wasting huge amounts of time, money and energy trying to figure out what works for you. I should know – I looked everywhere for solutions for my challenging skin. And while consumers are being pulled in multiple directions, clinicians are time-poor and overstretched and you can never quite get hold of them. GetHarley solves all this, giving experts a one-stop platform, and helping global consumers get access to the best advice in a crowded marketplace.”
