Castle Baths Attends HAPPI Magazine’s 1st. Ever Anti-Aging Conference

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

New Brunswick, NJ – Castle Baths Founder Laura Thomas and Chief Financial Officer Susan Bounds attended HAPPI Magazine’s first ever Anti-Aging Conference and Tabletop Exhibition September 18 – 19, 2012. The event was hosted at the Hyatt Regency hotel and included presentations on potential new anti-aging technologies, new growth opportunities in the anti-aging market, rules for cosmetic advertising claims, and anti-aging techniques for ethnic skin, among other topics.

“There was a lot of insightful information presented on the science behind some new and upcoming anti-aging ingredients,” Thomas said. “We also learned of several natural ingredients with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties comparable in efficacy to synthetic products currently on the market. We can use this information to improve and expand our product lines.”

Dermatologists who presented at the conference include Dr. Andrew F. Alexis, Director of the Skin of Color Center at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital and an Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Columbia University; Dr. Jeanine B. Downie of Mountainside Hospitals and Overlook Hospitals; Dr. Jennifer Linder, a Moh’s skin cancer surgeon and an expert in Sculptra facelifts currently serving as Chief Scientific Officer for PCA Skin; and Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone, a world-renown anti-aging expert, award-winning inventor, and adjunct professor of medicine at Michigan State University’s College of Medicine.

Keynote speakers who are not dermatologists included Gail Vance Seville of Sensory Spectrum, Inc., James H. Hartten of Arent Fox, Jim Larkey of Carefield Imaging Systems, Carrie Mellage of Kline & Company, Elizabeth Nach of the Federal Trade Commission, May Shana’a of Ashland Specialty Ingredients, Karen Young of The Young Group, and David A. Zetoony of Brian Cave, LLP. Complete bios of all presenters can be found at http://conference.happi.com/meet-the-speakers/.

If HAPPI Magazine’s conference becomes an annual event, Thomas will return and continue to learn the latest scientific discoveries in natural anti-aging ingredients.

“I whole-heartedly believe consumers are looking for a natural alternative to synthetics and surgery for their anti-aging skincare regimens,” Thomas said. “Currently, the industry tends to focus more strongly on the science of synthetic anti-aging products. We can still use the scientific data presented at the conference to improve our natural equivalents.”

Castle Baths’ Anti-aging line, Tre’Yours is devoted specifically to the science of anti-aging using natural ingredients. Products listed under this line contain organic, wild-crafted, and kosher ingredients, and are specially formulated to improve the look and appearance of aging skin. Castle Baths’ products are also completely vegan and gluten-free. Castle Baths’ entire product line can be viewed at www.castlebaths.com.

“Anti-aging isn’t just a matter of what is in a product,” Thomas said. “The formulation, methodology, and delivery method are equally as important. We work to discover the most ideal percentages, preparation time, and method of application to the skin to give people the most anti-aging benefits possible.”

Castle Baths to hire 50 salespeople throughout U.S.

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

Starting this August, top-quality natural spa and bath product manufacturer Castle Baths will be hiring 50 salespeople nation-wide as part of its long-planned expansion into the supplier/distributor world. Once a small retail business operating solely online, has grown exponentially over the years, and is now hoping to begin selling its spa and bath products to spa owners, dermatologists, and other professionals in the skin care industry.

“We’ve had tremendous success marketing our Anna Designer Pet line of natural soaps and soaks for pets in the European Union and other countries,” said Castle Baths owner Laura Thomas. “We hope to have similar success marketing our products intended for human use here in the United States.”

Thomas also hopes her hiring decision will have a “trickle-up” effect, boosting business for her new hires, their wholesale clients, and Castle Baths itself.

“By hiring 50 new salespeople, we’ll be giving 50 people quality, corporate-style work without the corporate ‘desk-job’ atmosphere,” Thomas said. “When they recruit new wholesalers, they will profit, and when the wholesalers start selling our products, they will profit. In turn, we will profit. It’s a win-win situation.”

The four brands to which Thomas refers include Castle Baths’ Classic brand, which includes products scented in the original seven aromatherapy essential oil blends she created when founding Castle Baths, Others include the Exotic Earth brand, which includes products with single scents or a large quantity of a specific ingredient, the Tre’Yours brand, which includes products formulated specifically to give the most anti-aging benefits for their user’s dollar, and the Anna Designer Pet line, which includes natural soaps and soaks for pets.

“Our salespeople will have the option of selling as many or as few brands as they wish,” Thomas said. “If we find someone with extensive experience and contacts in the boutique, gift shop, or event planning business, and she wants to just focus on our gift baskets and gift bags, she can. If we find someone who used to be a professional breeder of cats or dogs, and he wants to just focus on our Anna Designer Pet line, he can. Each of our products has a purpose and target audience, so we’re very flexible with our sales representatives and wholesalers.”

Castle Baths was founded in 2005 to provide “products with purpose,” to customers worldwide. “Our greatest advantage over our competitors is that our products actually are all-natural,” Thomas said. “The cosmetics industry is filled with products containing parabens, oxides, and other potentially harmful man-made chemicals. Our products contain none of these, just the pure, organic ingredients the Lord gave us to keep ourselves at our best.”
