       Amendment No. 2 to F-4 filed March 21, 2022

       Q: How does the Sponsor intend to vote their shares?, page xxxix

   1.                                                   We note your disclosure
on pages xxxix, 21 and elsewhere in the registration
                                                        statement that the
Sponsor and its affiliates may purchase or enter into agreements to
                                                        purchase shares from
public shareholders, which could have the effect of increasing the
                                                        likelihood of
satisfying the requirements to approve the Business Combination. Please
                                                        confirm all such
purchases outside of the redemption offer will satisfy the conditions set
                                                        forth in Tender Offers
and Schedules C&DI 166.01.

Summary of the Proxy Statement/Prospectus
Obagi, page 2

2.       We acknowledge your revised disclosures in response to prior comments
3 and 13. Please
         further revise your disclosures to state whether you or Obagi have
received any
         communications, whether oral or written, from the FDA or other similar
         authorities regarding the continued marketing and sale of products
containing HQ or
         arbutin or the Skintrinsiq device, or any related issues. Please also
revise to clarify
         whether you are aware of any other device similar to the Skintrinsiq
device that pursued or
         is pursuing FDA authorization.
3.       We acknowledge your response to our prior comment 6 that Obagi offers
         arbutin products in jurisdictions that prohibit the dispensing of
prescription products
         without a pharmacy or license. You also disclose on page 275 that the
         Commission has expressed concerns on the potential use of arbutin in
cosmetic products
         and for which it completed a public consultation in April 2021. Please
expand your
         disclosure as appropriate of the use of arbutin in cosmetic products,
including the risks
         associated with this ingredient, any statements the FDA or European
Commission has
         made regarding this ingredient, either publicly or to you or Obagi,
and clarify whether this
         ingredient is permitted to be used in other countries such as those in
Risk Factors, page 38

4.       We note your revised disclosures regarding the post-transaction
ownership percentage by
         the Sponsor, including in certain scenarios assuming various levels of
redemption. Please
         add disclosure as appropriate, including in a risk factor, regarding
any risks arising from
         the significant ownership by the Sponsor following the transaction.
Information About Obagi, page 271

5.       We note your revised disclosures in response to prior comment 14. Your
         continues to refer to Obagi products as "rooted in science" and
science-backed,    or refers
         to the products' efficacy in terms of having the ability to prevent or
improve various skin
         conditions. For example, you state on page 273 that Obagi Medical
products' reputation
         lies in the "robust clinical evidence" that you have developed, and
that your Obagi
         Medical products use medical-grade formulations. However, you also
acknowledge that
         the significant majority of your products are not approved by the FDA,
even when
         required. We continue to have concerns regarding the many references
in your registration
         statement to your products being supported by scientific studies,
medical-grade, or being
         clinically proven, as these terms imply approval by the FDA or a
similar regulatory
         authority. Please advise why it is appropriate to include references
to various clinical trials
         in your registration statement when they are not the basis for
regulatory approval, and to
         imply conclusions without discussing the underlying data. Please
substantially revise your
         disclosures to remove any implications that your products have been
approved by a
         regulatory authority.

6.       We acknowledge your revised disclosures in response to prior comment
16. We note your
         response that you do not believe any patents due to expire within the
next five years will
         have a material effect on your net revenue or overall business. Please
revise your
         disclosures on page 276 to discuss this information.

8.       We note your response to our prior comment 18. Please also disclose,
if true, that your
         distribution agreements with Sephora do not contain any minimum
purchase requirements.

9.       We acknowledge your response to our prior comment 22, which we reissue
in part. We
         refer to the first and fourth rows of your fee table exhibit. Please
explain the inclusion for
         two separate rows, which appear to be for Waldencast plc Class A
ordinary shares, and
         revise to clarify the 43,320,867 "Ordinary shares", or advise.
10.      We note your footnote to your Exhibit index stating that certain
portions of exhibits have
         been omitted pursuant to Item 601(b)(10) of Regulation S-K. Please
revise to include a
         prominent statement at the top of the first page of Exhibits 10.38 and
10.39 that certain
         identified information has been excluded because it is both not
material and the type of
         information that the registrant treats as private or confidential.
Refer to Item
         601(b)(10)(iv) of Regulation S-K.
11.      We acknowledge your revised disclosures in response to prior comment
12. We note that
         the tax opinion exhibit continues to refer to assumptions, exceptions,
limitations and
         qualifications set forth in the Registration Statement, which
continues to have references
         to assumptions that the domestication qualifies as a F reorganization.
Please revise to
         clarify the qualifications in the Registration Statement upon which
the tax opinion relies.
