Rodan + Fields was acquired by Estée Lauder in 2003 when the products were sold in department stores. Rodan and Fields bought the company from Estée Lauder. It was relaunched as an advisor-based direct seller.
Rodan + Fields was the number 1 skin care brand in North America in terms of total sales according to Euromonitor 2017. It has a unique corporate structure. The products are sold directly online or through a team of nearly 300,000 consultants.
