NEW YORK & DEERFIELD, Ill. -- July 23, 2013

Indeed Laboratories announced today the U.S. launch of its global skin care
products nanoblur and snoxin with exclusive availability at Walgreens and
Duane Reade stores nationwide. Indeed Laboratories is an innovative company
that develops affordable skin care products, offering targeted solutions for
every woman. The brand’s U.S. retail launch through distributor Boots USA is a
result of the strategic partnership formed last summer between Alliance Boots
and Walgreens (NYSE: WAG) (Nasdaq: WAG) to create the first global
pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise.

“We believe in pushing the boundaries of science and challenging the status
quo of beauty standards,” states Dia Foley, Vice President of Sales and
Marketing of Indeed Laboratories. “By expanding our distribution to the U.S.
market through Walgreens and Duane Reade, we’re able to reach out to a broad
consumer set with accessible, no fuss products the Indeed way, through our
simplified skin care solutions.”

“Walgreens selected Indeed Laboratories products because they complement our
approach to bringing our customer the proven innovation she seeks,” said
Shannon Curtin, Walgreens Divisional VP and General Merchandise Manager of
Beauty and Personal Care. “Shoppers know that they can always find the latest
skincare items at Walgreens, and now that includes nanoblur and snoxin. Our
knowledgeable beauty advisors are available to help answer any questions on
these new products.”

Indeed Laboratories was founded from a simple idea put forth by Foley, who has
been with the company from the start and has more than 20 years of experience
in the beauty industry. As a spokesperson for many top cosmetic brands, she
was constantly in front of cameras and concerned about how her skin was
appearing on screen. Foley’s goal was to achieve that soft, camera lens filter
effect directly onto the surface of the face for an instant result. Out of the
need for instant, flawless, HD ready skin, nanoblur instant skin perfector was
born. Since breaking onto the beauty scene the company has successfully
introduced a range of high performance, low-cost skin care solutions to women
across the globe, with current distribution in the United Kingdom, Canada,
South Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

One of the first products to be available in the U.S. is nanoblur, which has
received international acclaim and has been a number one selling beauty item
in its category in several markets. In the UK, nanoblur experienced
unprecedented sales in its first week in participating Boots locations. Indeed
Laboratories and Walgreens aim to repeat this success in the United States
with the exclusive launch of nanoblur instant skin perfector and snoxin facial
line fighter beginning this month.

“Based upon the great success that Boots experienced with Indeed Laboratories
in the United Kingdom, we’re thrilled to work with Indeed to bring their great
products to launch exclusively in Walgreens and Duane Reade in the United
States,” adds Gordon Farquhar, Managing Director, Boots Retail USA. “With the
help of Walgreens and Indeed Laboratories products, women have access to
innovative and affordable beauty solutions that deliver great results.”

The two Indeed Laboratories products are available at Walgreens and Duane
Reade locations nationwide as well as online at Walgreens.com and are value
priced, compared to conventional formulas of leading brands. Indeed
Laboratories’ line of high performance products includes:

nanoblur instant skin perfector  (MSRP: $19.99)  gives high definition camera
ready skin in seconds. nanoblur instantly transforms your skin, minimizing the
signs of aging – smoothing and softening the appearance of fine lines,
wrinkles, crow’s feet, enlarged pores, uneven texture and tone while
mattifying skin. This instant skin perfecting cream is colourless, making it
perfect for both women and men.

nanoblur™ was the first to market instant skin perfector that may be worn
without, applied under, mixed with, or over makeup, making it unique and in
its own category.

snoxin facial line fighter (MSRP: $29.99) is a concentrated multi-peptide
facial serum designed to help combat the appearance of skin aging long term.
While most skin care serums contain just one main ingredient to target signs
of aging, snoxin incorporates multiple peptides for reducing the appearance of
lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. snoxin provides visible results in just 7
days.

These and all Indeed Laboratories products are dermatologist tested and
clinically proven not to cause irritation when used as instructed. For more
