About Erborian:

Beautiful skin today, better skin tomorrow

Erborian aims at changing the approach to beauty by creating easy to use, benefit-oriented products that promise to always put the user and its skin first. Skincare-centric with a beauty bonus, they know the key to complexion confidence comes from both instant results AND long-term care. Their  hybrid products – between makeup and traditional skincare- draw their effectiveness from the power of our super ingredients from Korea. They inspire themselves from plants, herbs and fruits that have been used for centuries in the Korean Pharmacopoeia by women to take care of their skin.


Erborian challenge in the USA:

Erborian brand, part of L’Occitane group, has started its e-commerce presence in the USA a few years ago but never found the right recipe to accelerate its online sales. The brand needed to improve and develop its digital presence at 360° in order to deliver a new online user experience throughout its digital ecosystem. Struggling with a legacy platform that the brand couldn’t change, Vanguard Hub helped Erborian to define a complete new digital strategy for the US market optimizing the legacy systems and initiating a series of new and innovative activities focused on delivering quick ROI whilst building the brand equity for a sustainable business development on this very competitive market.

In addition, a big part of the process was to raise the level of digital expertise of Erborian team internally for the brand to be able to control its own digital destiny in the mid-term.
