The Company: Malin + Goetz
The Founders: Andrew Goetz and Matthew Malin
The Story: It takes some kind of well-practiced magic to create a skincare line that 1) appeals to both sexes 2) smells ridiculously good and 3) would look appropriate propping the vanity of the most design-obsessed hotel. But the stylized look of the mojito lip balm, eucalyptus deodorant, and cannabis candle doesn’t mean that the Malin + Goetz takes a hyper-modern approach. In fact, the founders are old-school in their way, personally developing each of the formulations, and, during their first three years in business, waiting on every customer who visited their store in New York’s Chelsea. Yah, they are those kind of guys.
