Bios Clinical Acne System lands spot in Walmart’s Top 10 contest
NEW YORK — After more than 1 million people voted in Walmart’s "Get On The Shelf Competition," America has chosen its top 10 most innovative products it would like to see on Walmart’s shelves. One of the winners is Bios Clinical Acne System, the brainchild of certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Mark Klapper, Bios Systems has announced.
It carves out an entirely new niche in skin care called ProbioCosmetics, Bios Systems stated. Bios Clinical Acne System helps prevent and treat adolescent and adult acne.
"The skin care industry has never been able to commercialize and harness the power of topical probiotics," Klapper stated. "This is going to change everything. Instead of producing retail products dependent on active ingredients that degrade or oxidize, Bios Clinical puts the manufacturing plant on the skin, churning out the most beneficial active ingredients historically used in the cosmetic industry 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
When asked about acne and the Bios Clinical Acne System, Klapper stated, "It’s time to think differently. If you do not have the bacteria that causes acne growing on your skin, you will not get acne breakouts. We pride ourselves as an acne prevention company as much as a treatment. If this were not enough, our products utilize the very rare and tropically sourced Astaxanthin, the most powerful antioxidant known to man. Astaxanthin, which is 6,000 times more powerful than vitamin C, has no equal in protecting your skin through scavenging free radicals."
More than 4,000 inventors and entrepreneurs entered their product ideas to Walmart’s "Get On The Shelf" contest, an online competition that asked businesses and individuals to submit products not sold by Walmart. The public voted for their favorites in the first round of voting, which ended April 3.
The final round of voting opened April 11 and closes April 24. Three winners will get a shot at selling on Walmart.com and enjoy free marketing support. Walmart’s physical stores may also carry the grand-prize product.
Dr. Fresh to license Angry Birds-branded oral care products
BUENA PARK, Calif. — Dr. Fresh, an oral care products manufacturer known for its FireFly toothbrush, has entered a new licensing agreement to serve as the exclusive U.S. manufacturer and marketer of Angry Birds-branded oral care products.
The first of numerous products to be rolled out under the licensing arrangement will be the FireFly Angry Birds Squirt ‘N Brush Tooth Foam, launching in third quarter 2012. The FireFly Angry Birds Squirt ‘N Brush Tooth Foam format represents a departure from traditional toothpaste. Instead of being squeezed onto the brush, it is dispensed directly into the mouth.
“We are thrilled to partner with a brand whose fan base is ardent, large and growing, and to leverage that appeal in products designed to encourage healthy oral care habits, especially among children,” stated Daniel Enriquez, VP sales at Dr. Fresh.
The Angry Birds game has been downloaded more than half a billion times across all platforms since it launched in 2009, and is the recipient of a host of industry awards, with possible TV series and film features now in the works.
