Shaftesbury Capital, a key supporter of the British Beauty Council, has recently disclosed that ELEMIS, a globally recognised beauty innovator, has picked Seven Dials in Covent Garden for its inaugural standalone store in London. This decision comes on the heels of ELEMIS’s successful Cleansing Lab Pop-Up in Covent Garden’s Piazza last year, evidencing Covent Garden’s appeal to a variety of prestigious brands and affirming its status as a leading destination in the UK’s beauty and cosmetics sector.

ELEMIS, celebrated for its premium skincare offerings and over three decades of industry leadership, is set to inaugurate a store approximately 1,000 square feet in size at 23 Monmouth Street. The store will showcase its meticulously developed skincare products, which are founded on aromatherapy principles and supported by rigorous clinical trials, aimed at enhancing skin health through protection, restoration, and renewal.
