Award-winning color cosmetics line empowers individuals to live their look by providing products with good ingredients and an epic payoff

CHICAGO—JUNE 12, 2018—CONNECTIONS—Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the global leader in CRM, today announced that Milk Makeup—the award-winning color cosmetics line from the visionary co-founders of Milk Studios—is using Salesforce Commerce Cloud to redefine digital shopping experiences and accelerate growth.

Brands today are dependent on creating seamless and personalized shopping experiences across every channel to succeed. According to recent Salesforce Research, “State of the Connected Customer,” 80 percent of customers say that the experience a company provides is as important as its products or services. In order to scale its direct-to-consumer business, Milk Makeup chose Commerce Cloud to improve efficiency of scheduling content and promotions by its ecommerce team, rather than through development resources.

In February of 2016, Milk Makeup turned to Commerce Cloud to transform the way it engages with its customers online. Now, Milk Makeup offers its customers a beautiful shopping experience that includes innovative features such as personalized content, shoppable video content and makeup tutorials that are embedded into product detail pages. The ecommerce site is managed by a small team of business users—with no in-house developers—and was launched in just six months. Since deploying Commerce Cloud, Milk Makeup has seen triple-digit annual growth online.

For a brand like Milk Makeup, which sees 60 percent of web traffic coming from mobile, this intersection of content and commerce is crucial. Commerce Cloud enables Milk Makeup to deliver shoppable videos, product imagery and personalized promotional offers optimized for mobile.

“Switching to Commerce Cloud was a strategic business move and one that continues to give back to our customers and their overall shopping experience,” said Morgan Fleming, Ecommerce Director at Milk Makeup. “Our site is now fully equipped with rich content and provides customers the seamless access they need to purchase the clean, cool beauty products they deserve.”

“It’s clear from the moment that you land on the Milk Makeup site—they are redefining the traditional shopping experience with their use of content and commerce,” said Gordon Evans, VP of Commerce and Community Clouds at Salesforce. “There is no concept of either content or catalog—it’s tightly woven together into one unified design.”
