(NASDAQ:DSKX), has launched its first campaign for its clinically proven eyelash stimulating product Spectral.Lash in Brazil’s Drogaria Iguatemi, the leading high-end retail drugstore chain in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The campaign features Spectral.Lash in floor-to-ceiling displays throughout its premium high-traffic prestigious locations, showcases Spectral.Lash on the cover of its monthly magazine and features the product on the company’s home page. The campaign has marked the launch of the highly anticipated introduction of Spectral.Lash and has set sales records throughout key markets.
“The rollout of Spectral.Lash has blown away our greatest expectations. We believe this product will continue to drive considerable revenue going forward. This product alone could represent as much as 30% of sales in Brazil, given Brazilian’s obsession with their appearance” commented Leonardo Chiacchio CEO of DS Laboratories do Brasil. “We continue to increase our presence throughout Brazil’s leading pharmacy chains and expect to be present in over 1000 locations in the next 12 months” concluded Chiacchio.
Daniel Khesin, President and CEO of DS Healthcare added, “We expect Brazil to represent one of the largest growth drivers for DS Healthcare. With the Brazilian cosmetic market leading second only to the US in size it is an ideal market for our products”.
The Sao Paulo metropolitan area has a population of 20 million, in one of the fastest growing beauty markets in the world. According to a U.S. Department of Commerce report titled, Doing Business in Brazil, "Hair care products make up the largest segment of the Brazilian cosmetics and toiletries market. Shampoo sales, both imported and locally made, constitute about 50 percent of domestic sales; they are divided evenly between Brazilian and well-known multinational suppliers.”
