LAS VEGAS, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- All-natural skincare line, Cicamed has announced a global partnership with kathy ireland® Worldwide (kiWW®). The agreement was concluded at the 2016 Licensing Expo by Mikael Ohlen, founder of the European-based brand, whose products are inspired by leading dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
"We are thrilled to partner with Kathy and her brilliant team at kiWW®," said Mikael. "We could not think of a better a partner to introduce our all-natural, imported skincare products from Europe to the American customer. As one of the most powerful brands in the world, kiWW® is the perfect partner to also help us expand globally. We are grateful to Kathy and the kiWW® team for this exciting opportunity. There are so many products in the marketplace, and sadly, few of them deliver the results they promise. Cicamed actually works! It took years to achieve these results. It began with our efforts in plastic surgery, and everyone simply loves the product. The results are real. In Sweden, we are not able to make claims which cannot be substantiated."
"I first started a plastic surgery clinic ten years ago, and it has since grown into the largest clinic in Europe. We've helped tens of thousands of patients, and now we're prepared, with kathy ireland® Worldwide, to bring Cicamed to America," explained Mikael.
Kathy Ireland, CEO of kathy ireland® Worldwide added: "It is a tremendous honor to be chosen by Mikael to introduce this brand to America and global communities. This expands the kathy ireland® Worldwide skin care portfolio. Cicamed's commitment is making organic products, affordable. Mikael met with our team during the filming of Modern Living with kathy ireland®, through our extraordinary partners at MMP (USA), Inc. They brought us together in a wonderful way... We were so impressed by the company's founder and leader, as well as their medically inspired product. Cicamed European Skincare products take care of every different type of skin problem. Some competitor products attack acne, a concern that millions of people deal with every day, by drying the skin out. This can be very damaging to the skin, however. Cicamed's products, on the other hand, are preferred by many pharmacies in Europe, because they will not damage or dehydrate the skin. After a lifetime of personal skin challenges, I'm learning more about this category on a daily basis. Everyone claims that their products are anti-aging. Cicamed European Skincare really makes a visible difference. These products are made in Sweden, and now, with Mikael's genius, we are bringing them to you."
Cicamed combines the best from nature with science. The organic skincare line's formulation is designed to strengthen and complement the skin's natural defense against aging. Cicamed products are researched and developed by the medical team at the Proforma Clinic, Sweden's largest private plastic surgery hospital. Comprised of experienced and renowned dermatologists and plastic surgeons, the team tests the efficiency of each product prior to its release, and modifies the formula as needed to ensure that Cicamed products stand out from the rest by actually providing solutions and results as opposed to masking symptoms. Cicamed also takes pride in sharing that no animals are used in the testing of its products.
"We fight oxidization in our products with airtight packaging filled under a vacuum. Our scar products have great and shocking results, because they actually work. They have been tested on thousands of patients, and are consistently able to minimize or remove scars. Sweden is a small country, and yet, thousands and thousands of people tell us, that we have changed their lives. Many celebrities from all over the world, including very-well known ones from the USA, have been using our products for years, and now the same formulas that we use in our plastic surgery clinics in Sweden are available in America," concluded Mikael.
"Cicamed European Skincare is, in our opinion, Sweden's finest and most innovative skin care program on the market. Today, we bring this magnificent program into the world, in a transformational way," said Kathy.
kathy ireland® Worldwide is committed to bringing its loyal base of customers around the world, the best in lifestyle solutions. kiWW's partnership with Cicamed is a result of its continued exploration for the best formulas available for customers seeking all-natural, yet effective products.
