Discover Beauty Forms Retail Partnership
Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) announced that YouBeauty.com will partner with CPNA’s Discover Beauty program to find brands for its new e-commerce site, BeautySage.com, which launches Spring 2012.
Discover Beauty is a program that matches leading specialty retailers with emerging beauty and skin care brands at Cosmoprof North America, held during the Professional Beauty Association’s Beauty Week. Product companies must be selected to participate in Discover Beauty, ensuring an elite array of new, cutting-edge emerging brands. Discover Beauty’s success during the six years it has been sponsored by CPNA, has depended on the unique brands exhibiting and the retailers that participate in the program. Show organizers arrange pre-scheduled sales meetings and events with key national and international retailers for the Discover Beauty brands.
YouBeauty.com, created by Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen in 2011, is a website that presents visitors with information on the inter-relationship between beauty and science. The site offers scientifically proven quizzes and tools to help visitors measure and improve all aspects of their personal beauty and wellness. With over 10 million visits to the site since its launch last July, YouBeauty.com will launch BeautySage.com this spring carrying brands that deliver the science of beauty message. Merchants from YouBeauty.com will attend the Discover Beauty meetings and then choose three brands that best fit with the BeautySage.com philosophy. The three selected Discover Beauty brands will be promoted and carried by BeautySage.com as an exclusive offering and will be marketed to their customers for a limited time. The top selling brand from these three will become a permanent addition to the Site.
“The online commerce segment has shown tremendous growth in the past three years, and it’s expected to increase from $6.9 billion in 2010 to $9.6 billion by 2012, nearly a 40% jump. YouBeauty.com has managed to create such a unique point of difference in the online beauty landscape in such a short period of time. By implementing smart strategies and furthermore focusing on providing their audience with the sense of discovering beauty finds, the partnership with YouBeauty.com and Discover Beauty was very clear to me,” said Daniela Ciocan, Director of Marketing for SoGeoCos Americas/Cosmoprof North America. “Discover Beauty has solidified its position at the place where retailers find unique brands poised for success, while BeautySage.com will be mimicking the same philosophy by bringing cutting-edge products to their consumers along with a sense of discovery. This partnership represents perfect synergies!"
Cosmoprof North America will take place July 22 - 24, 2012 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Stay tuned for regular CPNA show updates, and for more information, visit cosmoprofnorthamerica.com and Facebook.com/cosmoprofnorthamerica.
