PODCAST: Ole Henriksen, Founder of OLEHENRIKSEN
29 July 2021

Welcome to the latest episode of our Podcast series "The Beauty Edit" where we bring you inspiring stories, retail insights and conversation from the beauty sectors's most influential business leaders. 

Built on a product philosophy of exfoliate, treat and soothe, the OLEHENRIKSEN brand is globally renowned for its transformative results and simple, joyful, approach to skincare, which seeks to imbue users with that: “Ole Glow.”

For Henriksen himself, great skin begins with a positive outlook – an infectious, can’t stop you from smiling, zest for life that has taken him, and his namesake brand, on an incredible journey over the years, propelling him from young Danish country boy to skincare guru to the stars – with a few pit-stops in Jakarta, London and West Hollywood along the way!

Today, the OLEHENRIKSEN Face/Body Spa on Sunset Boulevard continues to attract an ever-growing A-list client base (Madonna, Charlize Theron, Halle Berry and Daniel Craig to name but a few).

Meanwhile, the skincare brand which he established in 1984 is flourishing on a global scale, as consumers continue to be drawn in by its powerful natural ingredients, intoxicating aromas and luxurious textures which offer truly sensorial, yet simple and effective home routines.

Relaunched in 2017 following its 2011 joining of forces with LVMH, OLEHENRIKSEN skincare products sit within five simple, colour-coded collections to address specific skin concerns.

Iconic products such as its Truth Serum, Banana Bright Eye Cream and Phat Glow Facial continue to lead the sales charge, alongside new innovations such as the brand’s recently launched Dewtopia 20% Acid Night Treatment.

Today, much of Henriksen’s time continues to be absorbed in the masterminding of innovative new spa treatments and the development of new products to treat, nurture and protect the skin.

He also adores spending time dancing, biking and on his gymnastic rings. Fortunately for us he managed to find a brief window in one of his joyfully jam-packed days to talk to Gaelle Walker, contributing editor of about his past, passions and plans for the future.
