Year to date sales growth 30%
FORT LEE, NJ, September 12, 2013 -(ACCESSWIRE)- Herborium[R] Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: HBRM), www.Herborium.com, a Botanical Therapeutics[R] Company and the provider of AcnEase(R), the one of a kind Botanical Therapeutic[R] increases sales by 20% in the 3rd quarter and 30% for the months ending August 31st, compared to respective periods in 2012. To total growth for three quarters of 2013 is close to 30 percent in comparison to the same three quarters of 2012.
The company contributes this dramatic increase in sales to its very sophisticated Social Media Strategy (AcnEase[R] entertains over 7000 "likes" on the Facebook) and its steady growth in the brand recognition due to the recent (2013) partnership with HUT Group in UK, media outlets like PositiveMeds.com and number of sponsorships and endorsements including former wrestling pro Danny Inferno. The Company expects that a strong positive impact of those recent brand promoting acquisitions will continue into the quarter of 2013 and beyond.
150 million women and men in the U.S., Canada and Europe are afflicted with acne. In particular 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 problem. During the past 10 years adult acne is on the dramatic rise with over 50% of acne incidents happening to individuals 20 years old 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.
Increased revenues from sales of AcnEase[R] and growing recognition of Herborium' brand provide the foundation for launching two new unique products Lasting Pleasure[R] for Men and Lasting Power[R] for Women this quarter.
Herborium is also accruing the royalties from sales of Kamasutra in over 250 liquor stores on the East Cost and will also use the association with Lady Kama to support distribution opportunities for the new products.
AcnEase[R], a clinically validated, all botanicals based acne treatment which is gluten, sugar and phytoestrogensfree is a perfect 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 (OC) or phytoestrogens, or involve a time consuming topical routines, AcnEase[R] is an oral tablet that contains only all natural herbal extracts. AcnEase[R] helps the body to modulate the impact of factors like androgen hormones and other hormonal imbalance on sebaceous gland secretions as they are thought to have the most dramatic impact on sebum production and are believed to be main cause of acne.
"We are determined to take advantage of the opportunities our consistently increasing sales and brand recognition provide for further growth of the Company, and now- multiple products line of our unique Botanical Therapeutics[R]. The natural medicine market and natural foods and beverage markets are the fastest growing segments in their respective sectors and Herborium is excellently positioned to take both short term and long term advantage of those opportunities," commented Dr. Agnes P. Olszewski, CEO and Chairmen of Herborium[R] Group.
