Herborium Group Announces Partnership With Former WWE Pro-Wrestler Danny
Gimondo To Help Combat Male Acne
Company accelerates entry in to $33.2 billion male skincare market, 25%
FORT LEE, N.J., June 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Herborium®
Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: HBRM), http://www.Herborium.com, a Botanical
Therapeutics® Company and the provider of AcnEase®, one of a kind Botanical
Therapeutic® for acne launches a large scale male acne campaign with former
WWE pro-wrestler Danny Gimondo as its spokesperson.
150 million women and men in the U.S., Canada and Europe are affected by acne.
42.5% of men, between the ages of 20 and 29 and 20.1% men, between the ages of
30-39 suffer from this skin issue. During the past 10 years, adult acne has
been on the rise with over 50% of acne incidents happening to individuals 20
years and older. In addition, during this same period of time, the average age
of an acne sufferer has increased from 20.5 to 26.5 years of age. Acne related
industries are expected to be worth close to $5 billion in 2015.
Acne, and specifically adult acne, is recognized not only as a medical
condition but also a viable skin care market sector with acne products
increasingly targeting this demographic. 65% of European men consider their
appearance important and 48% of U.S. men admit that competing effectively in
the workplace and in social situations requires them to take care of their
skin and their looks. It is therefore not surprising that Mintel, a
Chicago-based research firm, has predicted that by 2016 in the US alone the
men's skincare market could grow to $3.2 billion in sales, with global sales
reaching $33.2 billion in 2015. Europe and Asia are leading the growth of this
sector with up to 19% sales rate increase per year while the U.S. market grows
over 9% yearly.
To more aggressively participate in this exponentially growing male market,
Herborium® Group has retained Danny Gimondo (former WWE wrestler, Danny
Inferno) as a spokesperson. Danny, who has successfully used AcnEase® to deal
with his chronic acne, has extensive performance records and a large fan
following in the USA, Europe, Asia, Central America and Asia, is eager to
serve as a spokesperson for this one of a kind all botanical acne treatment.
In addition to his wrestling career, Danny stared in the motion picture "The
Wrestler" (2011), National Geographic Channel's feature "Slammed: Inside
Wrestling" (2012) and was a stuntman in WWE Raw vs. SmackDown (2007 video
game). He is a certified personal trainer by the National Academy of Sports
Medicine and a member of the American Association of Exercise Physiologists.
Danny also holds a degree in Exercise Science, Health Promotion Fitness
AcnEase®, a clinically validated, all botanical based acne treatment which is
gluten, sugar and phytoestrogen free, is an ideal product to meet the demands
and preferences of the male market. Unlike many general acne products that are
designed to target women, and include estrogen or phyto-estrogens, or involve
time consuming topical routines, AcnEase® is an oral tablet that contains only
all natural herbal extracts. AcnEase® helps the body to regulate the impact of
androgen hormones on sebaceous gland secretions; in particular the analogs of
testosterone, (DHT) and (DHEAS) which are thought to have the most dramatic
impact on sebum production and are believed to be the main cause of acne.
AcnEase® sales to male consumers grew 25% during 2012, and an additional 15%
during the first five months of 2013.
Dr. Agnes Olszewski, CEO of Herborium, comments: "We are very excited about
working with Danny to provide effective and safe relief to acne for those
health and appearance conscious men who have not been able to see results with
other products, or did not even consider treating acne since many previous
options catered mostly to women. We also hope that Danny's public discussion
relating to his long struggle with acne will resonate with the male audience.
We think his focus and dedication to physical fitness and wellness will bring
awareness about acne's physiological as well as psychological impact on men's
lives into perspective. It is truly rewarding to see how AcnEase is changing
the lives of men so effectively."
