(02-17 09:27)

The founder of beauty-products company Aveda Corp has died at his US home.
A notice posted on the company's website says Horst Rechelbacher died on Saturday after an illness. He was 72.
Rechelbacher was an Austrian immigrant who founded the company in 1978. He started with one salon before turning it into a larger company that he eventually sold to Estee Lauder for US$300 million.
Aveda sells hair- and skin-care products for men and women.
The St Paul Pioneer Press reports that Rechelbacher was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011.—AP
