This Mega-Popular Brand Has Officially Left Sephora
By Julie Ricevuto, Digital Beauty Editor |
Update June 12, 2018:
It's official: The Ordinary has officially removed its products from Sephora. "The Ordinary is no longer available at Sephora," a spokesperson for Sephora told Allure in a statement. "While it is disappointing that Deciem has decided to change direction, we remain committed to evolving our unrivaled range of skin-care products to meet the needs of our clients."
While Deciem's CEO, Brandon Truaxe, hinted that The Ordinary would be soon joining Ulta, it hasn't landed on the mega-retailer's shelves just yet. One search on Ulta's website reveals that The Ordinary isn't available at the moment, but we'll be sure to update this post if it finally does join Ulta.

After a short stint in Sephora, the popular beauty company Deciem—which houses brands like The Ordinary and Loopha— may be moving on from the retailer and joining Ulta instead. According to a comment on Instagram, Deciem experienced payment issues with the mega-store, leading it to seek out other selling options, Allure reports.

"We are leaving Sephora due to payment issues but will launch online and in stores with Ulta and Douglas 'imminently,'" the comment, written by CEO Brandon Truaxe, revealed. Deciem launched at Sephora in December 2017, so this abrupt announcement is rather surprising for the brand, and possibly a bigger loss to Sephora than many would think considering how viral The Ordinary's skin care products have become over the past year.
While Deciem has previously announced it will be expanding into Douglas—a European retailer—in the past, this is the first it's mentioned possibly leaving Sephora. However, it's important to note that the brand's CEO has frequently been in the news lately for his erratic social media behavior and some pretty drastic business claims, so we should all take his words with a grain of salt until the company makes an official statement.
Nevertheless, while this news isn’t necessarily set in stone just yet, the most surefire way to continue buying Deciem is to order from the brand’s website. Stay tuned for an official confirmation and additional updates.
