SADDLE BROOK, N.J., Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Herborium Group, Inc., (PK: HBRM) www.herborium.com, a Botanical Therapeutics™ company, announced today that it has retained the services of Extreme Media, a public relations firm specializing in Social Media, to launch the Company's social media marketing campaign for its proprietary acne treatment AcnEase®. This will be one of many steps the Company is taking to make a strong push in the $50 billion global market for acne treatment.
In light of the withdrawal by Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. from further manufacturing and distribution of Accutane® (isotretinoin), the leading treatment for severe acne that is presently a subject of a class action suit, Herborium's AcnEase is perfectly positioned for an exponential growth as it is the all-botanical ingredients based, safe and effective alternative for addressing the acne problems that affect close to 60 million individuals in the US.
Dr. Agnes P. Olszewski, Chairmen and CEO of Herborium noted, "A social media strategy is a very cost effective marketing tool and will allow Herborium to take advantage of the strong consumer trends to pursue natural health alternatives and self medication decisions. The use of social media to educate consumers and healthcare providers about the benefits of AcnEase is an important step in the Company's growth strategy. This key marketing strategy for brand building will be applied to other Herborium products; including our unique all herbal ingredients based Women and Men Sexual Therapeutics."
"Since acne is both a disease and a social affliction, AcnEase bridges the healthcare and personal care (beauty) market making it an ideal candidate for a strategy using a social media platform and will serve as an effective tool to increase both our sales and market share," concluded Dr. Olszewski.
