Veet boosts hair removal products portfolio
PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Veet’s newest hair removal products build on the belief that a groomed bikini line tops summer appearance must-haves among women, according to a survey conducted on the brand’s behalf.
The "2011 Veet Survey" found that among U.S. women ages 18 years and older, 74% of respondents said they believed a groomed bikini line is the No. 1 must-have this beach season, more so than having a toned body (17%). What’s more, 83% of women said they would rather hit the beach 5 lbs. heavier than with a visibly ungroomed bikini line.
This year, Veet launched new ready-to-use hair removal wax strips for face and body, which retail for $4.49 and $9.99, respectively, available at mass retailers nationwide.

The sun care brand said that every consumer that takes its "sun certification" quiz on Facebook.com/BananaBoatBrand will receive a "sun certified" badge to display on their own Facebook wall and trigger a $1 donation to support The Skin Cancer Foundation’s sun education initiatives, for a total donation of up to $101,000.
"With skin cancer as the leading type of cancer in the U.S., it’s become increasingly important that families know how to protect themselves from the sun," said Perry Robins, The Skin Cancer Foundation president. "We are proud to partner with Banana Boat in our ongoing efforts to raise awareness for this important issue."
