Estee Lauder Is Paying NASA $128,000 To Send A Serum To Space

Estee Lauder—the multinational beauty manufacturer behind some of this planet’s best-loved skincare and makeup products—is sending a serum to space.

In a world, nay, galaxy-first, ten bottles of Estee Lauder’s ‘Advanced Night Repair’ serum will be shuttled out of this world for a four-and-and-half hour photoshoot shot by NASA astronauts.

While NASA’s astronauts won’t appear in the images, the International Space Station and cosmos will, and Estee Lauder are paying roughly $128,000 for the privilege.

The companies have said a spacecraft delivering commercial supplies—including radish seeds, a toilet, and the serums—will launch from Virginia “no earlier than October 1”.

After reaching the ISS (typically a four-day mission), NASA astronauts will photograph and film the serum in the ISS’ Cupola observatory, taking advantage of its heavily-windowed panoramic views of space.

Estee Lauder Pays NASA $128,000 for Photo Shoot in Space

The global recession, triggered by the coronavirus pandemic, has pushed brands to get more creative with their advertising because consumers are cutting back. Within beauty, several companies are spending less on traditional ads, while looking for new ways to break through the glut of content out there. In a press release, Estee Lauder highlighted it being the “first beauty brand to go into space” as a means to tout its “skincare innovation.”

The Northrop Grumman Antares rocket that will transport the skin serum as part of a supply run is scheduled to launch on Tuesday night from Wallops Island, Virginia. The Cygnus cargo craft will then dock on the space station early Saturday.

Estee Lauder Cos. is sending its newest skincare formula into space, and it’ll cost only about as much as paying a big influencer for a few Instagram posts.

The U.S. cosmetics giant is spending $128,000 for NASA to fly 10 bottles of its skin serum to the International Space Station. Once there, astronauts will take pictures of Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair in the cupola control tower, which has panoramic views of the cosmos. The images will be used on social media, with the company planning to auction one bottle off for charity when the items return to Earth this spring.
