Clarisonic invented its skin-cleansing brush in 2004, and has since sold over 15 million devices. The company claims its handheld instrument cleans six times better than hands alone. The award-winning devices are distributed through dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, spas, retailers, and online. Part of the L’Oreal Group, Clarisonic’s Redmond headquarters sits on the edge of Marymoor Park, with easy access to trails and outdoor concerts in the summer.
