Kim Kardashian’s upcoming skin care line has come across some trademark issues over the name SKKN.
Earlier this month Kardashian’s Kimsaprincess Inc. filed paperwork to trademark the aforementioned line, which might carry items like haircare, makeup, and other skincare products.
The reality television star and entrepreneur has now been hit with a cease and desist letter over the trademarking of the name from Beauty Concepts LLC’s Cydnie Lunsford, a 28-year-old entrepreneur and aesthetician who is the owner of the SKKN+ brand. Beauty Concepts also claims that it filed a trademark request for SKKN+ in March.
The letter, which was sent by lawyers on behalf of Beauty Concepts LLC, is demanding that Kim not use the name or face litigation. Lunsford argues that her brand has been using the name SKKN+ since July of 2017 to offer salon and skin care services to clients and that it would confuse customers if Kim is granted use of the name.
