U.K. private equity firm Manzanita Capital is exploring options including a sale of skincare brand Eve Lom, which is famous for its cleanser balm, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

The London-based buyout firm is working with an adviser to seek a buyer for the asset, which could fetch as much as $200 million in a deal, the people said.
