UK-based JK Health & Beauty Technologies Group has its sights set on travel retail expansion for its tanning and beauty brands.
Janice Smith, previously European Sales Manager at Tyko Travel Retail, joined JK Group in September as Brand Manager. She is responsible for launching Norvell, Strictly Come Dancing Tanning and Hempz Beauty brands in domestic and travel retail channels.
Norvell offers a range of at-home tanning products, including gradual tanning, instant tanning, wash-away, skin preparation and rejuvenation. According to the brand, its products nourish, revitalise and improve the condition of skin.
The Strictly Come Dancing licensed tanning range is paraben, sulphate and gluten-free. The line includes Dazzle Shimmering Mist, Perfect 10 Self Tanning Airbrush Spray, Perfection Self Tanning Mousse and Show Stopper Colour Booster Skin Perfector.
Hempz Beauty makes natural products derived from 100% organic Hemp Seed Oil. Hemp Seed Oil is rich in Vitamin E, C, B1, B2, B3 and B6, which is said to be ideal for maintaining healthy, younger-looking skin and hair.
Hempz products include shower gels, moisturisers and haircare.
Smith said: “I am extremely excited to launch JK Health & Beauty Technologies Group brands into travel retail as the industry is always striving for new product innovation. While these brands are new to the industry they are established worldwide not only in retail but also salons. I am looking forward to developing our European business to the success of our American partners.”
