In August 2018, JZI finalized an investment in Karium, a unique portfolio of personal care brands, primarily in the hair care and skin care categories, recognized throughout the UK and internationally.

The brands owned by Karium include the fast-growing PRO:VOKE, an expert hair color enhancement and care brand; Soft & Gentle, a fragrance led anti-perspirant deodorant and care brand; Cuticura, an anti-bacterial hand hygiene and medicated skin care brand; and Inecto, a natural hair and body care brand centered on coconut and argan oil.

Alongside Karium’s strong management team and operating executive Richard Otley, JZI intends to continue to grow the business organically as well as through a focused buy-and-build strategy across the UK and Europe.
