WWD – The two-time Oscar-nominated actress talks about her new clean beauty line that’s been five years in the making.

Scarlett Johansson is the latest celebrity embarking on a venture in the beauty industry. The two-time Oscar-nominated actress revealed on Tuesday her clean skin care line, called The Outset, which is launching with five products meant to reflect Johansson’s own minimal skin care routine. For the venture, Johansson teamed with Kate Foster Lengyel, a beauty industry veteran who has worked in the beauty divisions of Victoria’s Secret and Juicy Couture.

“I entered this industry blindly in a way,” Johansson explained alongside Foster Lengyel at The Outset’s Flatiron office. “It’s very different from what I do in my other job, but I had worked for a long time as an ambassador for other beauty brands and I think as I got older in my late 20s, there was a turning point where I just felt like I was done representing other people’s ideal beauty standards and I felt like I had enough confidence to start something on my own that felt true to me.”

Johansson spent the last five years going down different avenues for the brand, working with various formulators and beauty executives until she met Foster Lengyel through mutual friends right before the pandemic hit. The two spent their time during quarantine brainstorming and figuring out their attack plan and were able to fast track their idea.

The Outset is launching with five clean skin care products: the Gentle Micellar Antioxidant Cleanser, the Firming Vegan Collagen Prep Serum, the Nourishing Squalene Daily Moisturizer, the Restorative Niacinamide Night Cream and the Smoothing Vitamin C Eye + Expression Lines Cream. Products range from $32 to $54 and will be available on The Outset’s website before entering Sephora in April.

“We call it the classic white T of skin care,” said Foster Lengyel, who is the brand’s cofounder and chief executive officer. “It’s a universal staple in your wardrobe. It pairs with everything else and I think we understand from our conversations with consumers that they like to use a variety of brands, and so we wanted to create a brand that would play well with others.”

The Outset uses a signature Hyaluroset complex, a botanical alternative to hyaluronic acid, in all of its products to deliver lasting hydration, plumping and smoothing. The brand excluded 2,700 harmful ingredients from its products and looked to only clean ingredients.

“I was looking at all avenues,” Johansson said when asked why she chose skin care rather than another beauty category. “Like, I love color, fragrance and skin care. This is going to sound kind of esoteric, but I really meditated on it a lot and spent a lot of time thinking about it. I kept coming back to the idea of skin care because I had problem skin for a very long time that I felt self-conscious about. [Skin care] was just very much the base of the rest of my beauty routine and if I wasn’t feeling good about my skin, no amount of hair or makeup or glamour would make that feeling go away.”

The Outset centers on a three-step Daily Essential Regimen with its cleanser, prep serum and daily moisturizer, which mimics Johansson’s own daily routine. Johansson and Foster Lengyel felt it was important to offer basic daily essentials that would elevate and fit in with a customer’s daily habits.

Johansson’s skin care brand comes at a time of increasing activity in the celebrity beauty industry where many major celebrities have come out with their own brand over the last two years. This includes the launches of Selena Gomez’s Rare Beauty, Jennifer Lopez’s JLo Beauty, Jennifer Aniston’s LolaVie and Ariana Grande’s R.E.M. Beauty, among others.

For Johansson, she sees her skin care brand as unique to what’s on the market because it came out of her own necessity and offers a simpler solution for daily skin care.

“I can just speak for The Outset, which is it was such a labor of love,” she explained. “[The beauty industry] is a very crowded space, but in that space I felt like there was an opportunity to almost reduce the noise and make something that felt like it was an easy choice for people to understand and there was a transparency to it.

Unlike many other celebrities and their brands, Johansson opted to not use her name and didn’t have any intention of doing so from the get-go.

“I never thought about using my name,” she explained. “I wanted this line to stand on its own and I didn’t want it to feel like there was any sort of pre-existing idea of what it was going to be. That people could approach the line and take away what they will from it without my presence being there.”

The Outset was coined by Foster Lengyel after the two cofounders decided they wanted the brand’s name to reflect new beginnings.

The skin care brand is also rooted in sustainability. The Daily Essential Regimen products are all refillable. The brand aims to offer more refillable products as it continues to release new launches.

Johansson and Foster Lengyel explained that The Outset has a few more facial skin care products slated for release later this year and that they have their sights set on body care as their next category expansion.

“We have a lot of dreams for where we see our company going,” Johansson concluded. “I think it’s about getting this out there and then seeing how people use it, how they respond and opening up the dialogue and inviting a community of people to be a part of it. It’s very exciting to finally be sharing the brand with other people. It’s been such an inside operation for so long.”

Hollywoodreporter – The star and her business partner Kate Foster Lengyel take The Hollywood Reporter inside the launch of The Outset, the actress’ new vegan, eco-friendly brand.

Scarlett Johansson does not share her life with the world on social media. In this way, the actress hews to a pre-Instagram model of stardom, when celebrities were seen and heard in limited and intentional ways (read: when promoting a project). Johansson’s place in modern Hollywood, though, is evidenced by the launch of her new skin-care brand The Outset, as she joins a chorus of other celebrity beauty brands that seems to grow larger for consumers each season.

The Outset is an eco-friendly, plant-based skincare line. Johansson’s co-founder and the brand’s CEO, Kate Foster Lengyel, was founder and CEO of SwearBy, a digital site focused on word-of-mouth product recommendations. Together, with funding from the Najafi Companies (also an investor in Tracee Ellis Ross’ Pattern hair care line and Shay Mitchell’s travel essentials company Béis), Johansson and Foster created a line of six fragrance-free products: a cleanser, prep serum, day cream, night cream, fine line cream and lip treatment ($28 to $54). The brand’s signature is Hyaluroset Complex, a trademarked, hydrating ingredient blend that’s a botanical alternative to hyaluronic acid. On March?1, the items will be available on the brand’s direct-to-consumer website, and at sole retail partner Sephora on April?26.

Johansson — who was working on the launch amid her now-settled lawsuit against Disney over Black Widow’s release — and Foster spoke with The Hollywood Reporter over Zoom in December and again in February for a rare look at two different stages of the brand building process as the founders inched closer to its debut in the marketplace.

Johansson admitted that before she dove in to creating her own brand, the idea seemed daunting. “I never understood the background of how brands come to be. I just didn’t feel like I had a place at the table, because it was this whole new venture,” the actress told THR. “I think over time I just felt more confident that it was something that I had a perspective on. And felt like it was worth pursuing this dream.”

She started envisioning the line five years ago. “[The Outset] just was born out of curiosity and a genuine love for beauty and for skin care,” says Johansson. Early in the process, the budding entrepreneur met with several beauty companies about pairing with them, but she “kept coming back to this really authentic desire” to forge her own path.

She met Foster (“my producing partner, essentially,” says the actress) through mutual friends in the beauty industry, and the two recall being immediately aligned on how the brand should take shape: “I needed somebody else that felt brave and confident enough to do it independently of some of the major houses and brands. So Kate, I think, was the person for the job because she is a risk-taker. And she and I had a similar kind of ethos around beauty.”

Says Foster of Johansson, who serves as chairman of the company: “From our first meeting two years ago to where we are now, her vision then and the way that she described the brand, it’s like 99.9% the same as what we’re introducing.”

Vvogue – The last time I met Scarlett Johansson, seven years ago, she had just given birth to her daughter, Rose, and had brought the infant on the press junket for a new luxury beauty launch. Johansson was running late, according to her publicists, who kept the details vague. She arrived within a few minutes, looking noticeably bright-eyed and fresh, especially for someone who was only a few months postpartum. “I’m so sorry, I was nursing my daughter,” she explained with a warmth and familiarity that were disarming coming from the woman who would shortly become the world’s highest-paid actress.

When we meet again in late fall, this time hovered over our respective computers, I am hiding from my children in a corner of my basement turned home office, while Johansson sits in her closed-door bedroom, shielded, for the moment, from her daughter and her son, Cosmo, who has just turned three months. Her Zoom background reveals a cheery frond-print wallpaper that the 37-year-old actor installed during the pandemic to simulate more tropical climes—or, she jokes, a retirement home in South Beach. “I’m so sorry I was late, I had to pump my boob,” she says, flashing a megawatt smile. Some things, it seems, haven’t changed.

Others have. “I’ve been the face of several luxury brands throughout my career, and all of those experiences were really wonderful. But—how do I put this?” she pauses, a black baseball cap semi-­obscuring a furrowed brow. “I guess I always felt like I was sort of playing a character in those campaigns, and as I evolved, I wanted to create and represent a brand that was true to me.” This month, Johansson makes good on that goal with The Outset, a six-piece line of skin-care essentials that offers simple, clean, effective, and accessible formulas.

Johansson isn’t the first celebrity to get into the beauty game. Last year alone saw the arrival of new brands from Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Jada Pinkett Smith, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and the singer Halsey, among other A-listers hoping to add “founder” to their résumés. But there are very few beauty hopefuls with Marvel superhero franchises and indie cred—and even fewer who possess the layered intrigue that has always swirled around Johansson: the bombshell, the beauty queen, the badass assassin.

“I walked into our first meeting kind of taking a deep breath thinking, Holy crap, I’m about to meet Scarlett Johansson,” says Kate Foster Lengyel, The Outset’s cofounder, an industry veteran who was introduced to Johansson through mutual friends. She too was immediately charmed by Johansson’s intelligence and humor, which translate as a kind of normal-girl energy that you just don’t expect from Natasha Romanoff. “She’s Old Hollywood in that way,” confirms her longtime makeup artist Frankie Boyd.

Forbes – Scarlett Johansson is joining the sea of celebrity skin care founders. Last June, the two-time Oscar nominee announced she would be entering the beauty market with her own line, and on Tuesday, the 37-year-old actress launched an Instagram account and a website offering a sneak peek of her brand, The Outset.

“I’ve been the face of several luxury brands throughout my career, and all of those experiences were really wonderful,” Johansson wrote in one post, referencing her years with L’Oréal, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, and others. “But—how do I put this? I guess I always felt like I was playing a character in those campaigns, and as I evolved I wanted to create and represent a brand that was true to me.” Using the hashtag #TheStartOfYou, Johansson’s preview of The Outset suggests a product line centered on eco-friendly and plant-based ingredients.

Johansson will serve as the chairman of the new company, which is expected to officially launch on March 1. Cofounder Kate Foster will be the CEO. Foster was previously founder and CEO of SwearBy, a digital site focused on word-of-mouth product recommendations.

The Outset has funding from the Najafi Companies, a Phoenix-based private investment firm founded by Jahm Najafi, vice chair and partial owner of the Phoenix Suns and McLaren Formula One Race Team. In addition to backing the NBA team and other sports ventures such as StubHub, BodyBuilding.com and Mission Advancement Corp. with Colin Kaepernick, Najafi has a notable portfolio of celebrity-founded lifestyle brands, including Tracee Ellis Ross’ Pattern Beauty and Shay Mitchell’s bag company, Beis.

WWD reported last year that Najafi invested between $5 million to $10 million to fund The Outset launch. When Johansson announced that the beauty company was in the works, the mother of two said she took a step away from her existing endorsement deals to focus on her own venture.

Johansson is joining a long list of stars with cosmetics brands. Rihanna, Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez already have their own beauty lines, all of which tend to boast an emphasis on clean ingredients, simplicity, accessibility and inclusiveness. But the crowded market isn’t deterring Johansson from entering the skin care space, which helped make Rihanna a billionaire last year.

The cluttered market did not deter Najafi from investing. “The Outset is a special opportunity; for us to partner with an artist, it comes down to core values, passion and commitment…” says Dean Schnider, partner at The Najafi Companies. “Scarlett has been perfecting her own skincare formulations for years and the amount of genuine passion and intentionality that has led to The Outset is a true differentiator in the marketplace.”

While The Outset is a serious business venture, Johansson’s husband, Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost, couldn’t resist making with the wisecracks in the comments of the new Instagram account: “Is this the best way to contact you?” Jost asked a Johansson portrait. “I’m starting a similar brand called ‘Part of a Face’ and would love to use this photo. Thanks.”

Vanityfair – The Black Widow star launches her clean skin-care line today—never mind if she’s famously off social media. “I am really excited to create content for The Outset and be involved in our brand in that way,” she says. “But I don’t need to share pictures of my breakfast in order to do that.”

The start of spring is weeks away, but small signs of renewal keep presenting themselves. Clothing in petal-soft pastels. Fresh haircuts. Offices steadily humming back to life. That all manifests in the Zoom window, where Scarlett Johansson (salmon-colored sweater, crisp blond bob) is smiling from the Manhattan headquarters of The Outset, her new skin-care brand. Nothing about the six minimalist products suggests the star power that comes from Marvel juggernauts and art-house darlings like Lost in Translation and Her. In lieu of the actor’s name on the white boxes, there are tiny logos denoting cruelty-free formulas, a carbon-neutral facility, and cartons made using wind energy. If there’s a whiff of Johansson at all—a surname passed down by her Danish architect father—it’s in the Scandinavian simplicity of the design: frosted-glass jars with cornflower blue type.

“We kept coming back to the beginning, a restart, every day feeling like a new opportunity, elevating your every day, the essentials—all of these words,” the actor says of the early brainstorms. “And, I don’t know, Kate had this stroke of genius.” The Outset, as christened by cofounder and CEO Kate Foster, taps into a spirit of optimism—a bright coda for a project that coalesced over a downbeat two years. “The first time we met in person was right before the pandemic exploded—we actually met at a restaurant that’s unfortunately no longer there,” Johansson recalls. Ramping up a business amid global upheaval had its obvious challenges, but the state of things also offered a window of opportunity. “We were just like, ‘Okay, the noise has kind of died down and here we are; it’s just us. Let’s get to work.’”

If a phrase like the outset signals a clean slate, that philosophy also extends to its vision for an overhauled skin-care landscape, with considered ingredients and come-one-come-all approachability. (The protective night cream is the biggest ticket item, at $54.) At the heart of the range is an elemental three-step routine: a micellar gel for gentle cleansing, a firming serum, and a squalane-boosted moisturizer. Filling out the lineup are two targeted treatments: a lotion-like application for lips, and an eye cream for smoothing fine lines. (It’s a sleeper hit with Johansson’s husband, SNL star and Staten Island Ferry co-owner Colin Jost.)

For Johansson, whose onscreen work has expanded into a production company, it seems natural that her previous beauty ambassador roles would inspire her to create something of her own. The idea of building community was central; sustainability, too. “Making something that was a necessity without contributing to a problem was a pillar of importance for me,” she says, echoing the brand’s warm, pragmatic approach. Here, she revisits her Y2K piercings, hints at The Outset’s next steps, and talks about the lingering scrutiny around motherhood.

Vanity Fair: In the late 1990s, when you appeared with Robert Redford in The Horse Whisperer, he described your level of maturity as “13 going on 30.” Did that ahead-of-the-curve awareness extend to skin care?
Scarlett Johansson: It’s so funny that you brought that up. Right around the time when I made The Horse Whisperer, I was starting to get teenage, like, hormonal acne. And I remember—this really shows you how careful you have to be around what you say to young people—the makeup artist at the time was like, “Whoa, what is that? Like Mount Vesuvius.” He was describing my acne and it made me feel terrible. I did have problem skin for a really long time, well into my 20s. Even before that, starting to wear makeup when I was like eight, nine years old for film, my mom always reminded me to take care of my skin. [No matter the] amount of beauty or lighting or whatever, at the end of the day, coming home and washing your makeup off and seeing your skin, you’re just kind of there with yourself. I’ve been hyper-aware of how that has affected my own self-confidence.

hypebae – Achieve camera-ready skin with consciously clean beauty products for all.
After serving as the face for luxury beauty brands, renowned Hollywood actor Scarlett Johansson stepped away to breathe life into her own vision, founding The Outset — a minimalist skincare brand that provides exceptional products for everyone, doing away with unnecessary ingredients and harmful stereotypes. With an approach to skincare that is mindful and minimalist, “the vision for The Outset was to create clean and effective products that simplify your routine and elevate your every day. I want The Outset to be universal, approachable, and as reliable as your favorite white tee — a classic staple,” Johansson tells us over email.

Known for her work in front of the camera as the uber-cool and badass Marvel superhero Black Widow, Johansson dedicated her time and energy to learning the ins and outs of the science behind skin care to deliver effective products without the frills. “After representing other brands as a character in their campaigns, I wanted to build a brand that was reflective of me and my beauty ideals. Because I have spent so much of my life in front of the camera, I’m acutely aware of how much my skin is linked to my confidence. There are so many brands and formulas and harsh ingredients, but for me, the simpler, the better. Finding freedom in the uncomplicated was something I wanted to make available to everyone.”

Working with CEO and co-founder Kate Foster Lengyel, The Outset sets itself apart from the pack, providing meticulously thought out formalutions at an affordable price. With all items under $55 USD, the skincare line truly prioritizes accessibility, ensuring all can benefit from the high-quality products. Driven by the old adage, “less is more,” The Outset is purposefully austere in its ingredient list, excluding 2,700 potentially harmful ingredients, doing away with anything that was incomplete, questionably sourced or unsatisfactory. Not only is the latest clean skincare brand fragrance-free, vegan, gluten-free, and nut allergen free, dermatologist and allergy tested, but the Hollywood-approved products’ packaging is designed with the earth in mind, using recycled materials wherever possible.

“The Outset means a new beginning, which feels more relevant than ever at a time when we are all starting over and pressing the reset button. It took years for us to build a brand that was backed by quality and purpose, and I’m thrilled to finally share The Outset with the world. It’s an exciting beginning for me, as well.” The campaign for the star’s latest venture decidedly features a wide diversity of faces, refusing the antiquated notion that first-rate beauty is only meant for some, you’ll find a true variety of genders, skin tones and ages on The Outset’s branding as all can benefit and use its products.

Comprised of five core products, The Outset features a Gentle Micellar Antioxidant Cleanser, Firming Vegan Collagen Prep Serum, Nourishing Squalane Daily Moisturizer, Restorative Niacinamide Night Cream and Smoothing Vitamin C Eye + Expression Lines Cream. The Outset is available now on the brand’s website. Watch The Outset’s innovative and inclusive campaign below.

Elle – As a kid growing up in downtown New York City, Scarlett Johansson would regularly see Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen on David Yurman billboards overlooking Soho. So it was “a very nice, really big deal” when she was handpicked—along with actor Henry Golding—as the latest David Yurman muse to get her very own XL ad, along with a short film where she gets chased by the paparazzi, rolls around in bed, and sings “New York, New York.” (Yes, besides fighting Thanos and fighting for fair pay, Johansson can also sing very well.)

To talk about the new campaign, Johansson called us from home in New York—we love a local girl!—to discuss male gazes, female expectations, and what happens when she really needs to talk to someone.

You’ve posed in a bed for Dolce & Gabbana, for your recent Amazon commercial, and now for David Yurman. Did they come to you and say, “Okay, it’s a bed shot!” or at this point, is that just a given?
Oh yes, you know, I’ve tried to do every campaign in my life from bed. [Laughs.] Yeah, I find it really great to roll out of bed, and then go through about six hours of hair and makeup, and then just get back into a bed.
So the secret to bedhead is six hours of glam.
Yes. You look better when you get back into the bed after all that hair and makeup! I’m sure there’s a quote from Marilyn Monroe or Liz Taylor about wearing diamonds in bed…But yeah, I guess advertisers—I mean, I guess, male advertisers or men who are advertising executives, love to see me in bed with lots of jewelry. I guess it’s a thing.
I assume when you actually go to bed…
I take off all my jewelry. Yes. So this idea that I’m asleep wearing such incredible jewelry, all this amazing David Yurman, it’s cool, but I’m sorry to say, it’s sort of counterintuitive! And yes, most nights I have like, a ring or two that I wear to bed. But eight gold bangles on each arm? No. And a giant gold and diamond hugger? No. I don’t just have diamonds kicking around in my bed. That would get kind of dangerous.
Speaking of dangerous, do you ever subscribe to superstitions when it comes to jewelry? Some people believe certain pieces are haunted.
I have that feeling about some material objects. When I was younger, I used to collect Victorian jewelry. When I started, like, making my own money, if I traveled somewhere, I would track down antique collectibles and rare pieces. I remember working in England, and working in New Orleans, and finding pieces of Victorian jewelry and…I don’t know, it’s like, the jewelry would choose me. Suddenly, I’d be really drawn to a particular piece and I wouldn’t even know why. I think only jewelry can do that to you!
The theme of the campaign is “come closer,” which I suppose is something you can do in a bedroom. But also, how have you had to adjust your idea of coming closer during these past two years in isolation?
I’m always a face-to-face girl. If I need to tell you something important, I want to tell you face to face. So on the one hand, thank God for video chat and FaceTime and all that. That’s been a lifesaver. On the other hand, even though I love seeing my nieces and nephews grow and I can do that via video call, I hate talking about anything important on the phone! I want to see you in person. Either that, or I want to send you an email or write to you. I do like writing long letters to people.
Is there an element of “come closer” that’s also connected to being famous? Like, you’re a real person, but you’re faced with images of yourself every day, even though they’re not exactly you, per se.
I have an advantage because I’ve been [acting] for such a long time that it doesn’t phase me as much. It’s not that I’m jaded, but I just see that “image” as an extension of my work, you know? It’s like, “Okay, I’m in this thing. My face will be everywhere. That’s marketing; that’s not me.” To be honest with you, it might also come from growing up in New York where there are images everywhere, and then the next day, they’re gone and new billboards or posters go up…I think it’s probably weirder for my daughter, because if it’s not your [job] and you’re not used to it, those moments can be extremely startling. And you know, I’m sure I do have a lot of other feelings about this! [Laughs.] But I guess I’m used to it.
