SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Now that the holidays are over, it may be a while before you are generously gifted more extravagant lotions and creams – products that you otherwise wouldn't purchase for yourself. That's why mybotto (www.mybotto.com) today, is introducing mybotto museum, the chicest member of its inverted bottle holder family, enabling consumers to use every last ounce of lotion typically trapped at the bottom of personal care and beauty product bottles.
"Nobody wants to take a knife or a pair of scissors, and cut product out of an expensive gift," said Linda Lim, CEO, mybotto. "Nor do consumers want to contribute unnecessary waste to our landfills. mybotto museum offers a fluid design and chrome finish which makes it stylish, functional and green."
According to the National Retail Foundation's December 2012 consumer survey, personal care and beauty item gift purchases are up 4.7% from 2011. This spike in sales doubles any previous increase recorded by the NRF, who has been surveying the buyer behavior of these products since 2005.
This sales spike, according to Lim, results in a lot of product wasted at the bottom of bottles, sitting in landfills – a problem that mybotto plans to remedy with a tres chic museum design that's as fashionable as it is functional. Its stylishly slick rust-and-waterdrop-resistant design means that it can be just as elegantly displayed in the living room as the bathroom. mybotto comes in different colors and finishes and accommodates hundreds of popular personal care brands.
"mybotto is fresh and Eames-inspired," said The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art MuseumStore buyer Kit Dombrowski. "Museum-goers see this sleek new gadget as more than a simple way to conserve lotion, it's a beautiful, even sophisticated, way to do it."
Headquartered in San Francisco, mybotto is available online and in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's gift shop in various sizes, colors and materials. Its presence has extended beyond North America and into select high-end salons located in Switzerland.
