Greek Skincare Line Mastic Spa to Debut on ShopNBC
MINNEAPOLIS, MN --
-- 07/30/2009 --
Mastic Spa is a skincare line created by Sodis Labs, which was established in 1875. Sodis Labs has earned a reputation for making ground-breaking discoveries in the development of natural mastic resin based products since the early 1980s. Mastic resin, the key ingredient in all Mastic Spa products, is known for its medicinal properties and therapeutic benefits to the skin. This elixir, which seeps from the mastic tree, is extremely rare and found only in the southern region of the Greek island, Chios. Eleni Zannikos, part of Mastic Spa, will be the special on-air guest for the show's debut.
Sodis Labs' George Sodis, pioneer and visionary, said: "Our collaboration with ShopNBC is quite special. From a channel that sells premium lifestyle merchandise, the launch of our skincare line is an honor, reward, and recognition of the extraordinary properties of our mastic-based products. We believe that the unique value of mastic and its properties will enthuse the American public, and we expect that Mastic Spa will earn a place in their hearts and minds as a new discovery and their new beauty choice."
Donna Tarantino-Loyle, Director of Health & Beauty at ShopNBC, said: "We are excited to bring this head-to-toe, indie beauty line to our channel. Mastic Spa has taken natural, indigenous ingredients and blended them with science to create exceptional products exclusive to Greece. We are very much looking forward to bringing the romance of Greece to our customers through Mastic Spa products."
Suzanne Coppenrath, CEO of The Rana Group, Mastic Spa's representative for U.S. television, said: "We are proud to represent Mastic Spa in their first ever television appearance in the United States. ShopNBC provides a wonderful platform to introduce the ancient and mythical mastic, which has been used for centuries by Greeks in medicinal and cosmetic applications. We are confident that viewers across the country will be enchanted with this magnificent product line of cosmetics, bath, and body."
