MIAMI BEACH, Fla., June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cosmeceutical developer Divine Skin Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DSKX). Men and women suffering from hair loss will begin to find topical hair-regrowth products by DS Laboratories in Fantastic Sams, a chain of 1,300 franchised salons throughout the United States.
According to DS Laboratories owner Divine Skin Inc. (DSKX.ob), the cosmeceutical distribution agreement should be worth $4.6 million per year when fully implemented — about six months — based on $300 per month per door. Fulfillment has already begun with the Florida locations, and demand has been better than expected, reaching $1,000 per month in some salons.
DS Laboratories products include Revita hair-growth-stimulating shampoo and Spectral.RS minoxidil-free leave-in treatment.
Spectral.DNC and Spectral.DNC-L, two comprehensive formulas for advanced androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness), compete head-to-head against Rogaine, whose only active ingredient is minoxidil. By incorporating Aminexil, procyanidins B-2 and C-1, and other demonstrated hair-growth agents in addition to 5% minoxidil, Spectral.DNC and Spectral.DNC-L perform at the hairline as well as the vertex of the scalp.
Revita.COR, a hair-growth-stimulating conditioner, will ship in 2010. Encapsulated in hydrophobic, bio-adhesive lipospheres, its active ingredients, including plant-based stem cells, adhere to the scalp tenaciously for maximum hair-growth benefit, even while swimming.
