“My goal in creating Happy Dance was to make trusted, high-quality, everyday CBD skincare products more widely available to busy moms and consumers everywhere at a price that wouldn’t break the bank,” said co-founder Kristen Bell. “Ulta Beauty is the perfect partner to make that dream a reality. I am grateful for their approach to beauty and their belief in our vision to rethink self-care.”

The brand’s uplifting, colorful CBD bath and body product assortment is the ultimate embodiment of what Bell would look like on your vanity. It will be one of the newest additions to Ulta Beauty’s wellness assortment of self-care products.

Her approach is best-in-class to engage, educate and entertain beauty enthusiasts and we look forward to guests embracing the brand online and in our stores.”

The joyful mission of Happy Dance is to transform the traditional notion of self-care to extend well beyond the brand itself.  One percent of Happy Dance profits benefit A New Way of Life Reentry Project , a Black-owned, LA-based organization founded by Ms. Susan Burton, a seasoned activist, 2010 CNN Hero, 2012 Purpose Prize winner and author of Becoming Ms. Burton .
