SAN MARCOS, Calif., July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Golden Door this week announced the hiring of an experienced beauty industry consulting team to increase visibility and distribution for the company's revitalized line of skin, body and hair care products. Last November, the all-natural skin care line was reformulated to offer even more benefits, and two new bath and hair care lines were added.

"Deanna Kangas and Andrew Knox, co-founders of Strategic Growth Consultants, will lead our plans to build Golden Door Skin Care into a world-class business," said Kathy Van Ness, general manager and chief operating officer. "Their previous success and experience managing the growth of emerging brands matches our own growth objectives. We are so pleased that our quality spa products soon will have a larger audience."

With combined experience of more than 50 years in the beauty industry, Kangas and Knox specialize in creating and building innovative brands and developing national and international distribution. Kangas has helmed a successful re-launch and revitalization of Stila Cosmetics; created a new brand strategy for the Barbie Collectors division of Mattel; co-founded, which was purchased by The Estée Lauder Companies; and managed marketing and product development for Bijan Fragrances, Bath & Body Works and Potpourri Foundry.

Knox has led business development at PIXI and POP Beauty, helping to launch POP Lash Shops internationally, placing PIXI in nationwide Target stores and expanding PIXI boutiques in London and Dubai. His career includes marketing and sales for Tony & Tina Cosmetics, Too Faced Cosmetics, Ralph Lauren, L'Oreal, Benetton Cosmetics,, Laila Fragrance and Healing Hands.

In keeping with the Golden Door experience to nurture body, mind and spirit, the Skin Care products feature all-natural, antioxidant-rich plant extracts and essential oils inspired by gardens and orchards on the resort property. For example, Citrus Stem Cells, loaded with amino acids, peptides and proteins, help repair and prevent signs of aging. Avocado Oil nourishes and moisturizes without clogging pores. The new aromatherapy-based bath and hair care products are Hinoki, a grounding Japanese cedar blend, and Yuzu, an uplifting Japanese citrus blend.
