MEET OUR FOUNDERS
Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields founded Rodan + Fields on the belief that everyone deserves great skin. They’re dermatologists, innovators and entrepreneurs who create revolutionary products that deliver real results.
Their ongoing experience as dermatologists and product formulators uniquely positions them to create innovative products that address skin concerns effectively.
Their spirit for sharing knowledge led them to use a Consumer Connected Commerce model that allows Consultants to impart their experience directly to Customers, thereby becoming entrepreneurs as well.
Their shared passion for healthy-looking skin led them to develop their proprietary Multi-Med Therapy system that takes the guesswork out of skincare and delivers visible results.
Their commitment to making the world better inspired them to found the Rodan + Fields Prescription for Change Foundation, which gives young people access to life-changing empowerment programs.
THE EVOLUTION OF R+F
After meeting at Stanford University School of Medicine in the 1980s, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields develop Proactiv® Solution.
The Doctors launch Rodan + Fields with Regimens for a range of skin concerns like signs of aging. Rodan + Fields is acquired by The Estée Lauder Companies, Inc. in 2003.
