NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading natural cosmetics brand and one of the fastest growing natural personal care brands in its category, Mineral Fusion™ announces, today, that actress Emmanuelle Chriqui will act as the brand's spokesperson for North America. Ms. Chriqui will collaborate with Mineral Fusion™ for various marketing and public relations activities including retailer promotions and personal appearances, digital and social media campaigns, as well as philanthropic initiatives to support the brand's commitment to raising awareness about domestic violence on both a national and global level.
"We see this partnership with Emmanuelle as a way to reach a broader audience, and deliver credibility of our efficacy and brand promise," says Thomas Brown, President of Mineral Fusion™. "She perfectly embodies Mineral Fusion and what we, as a brand, stand for. In addition to being socially responsible and environmentally active, she is pure proof that natural cosmetics can be synonymous with beauty."
