1/29/2007 - Bioponic Phytoceuticals has reached an agreement with Hawaiin skin care specialist Malie to supply ingredients and formulations for a new lineof facial tonics. Bioponics has developed its name in the alternative health and neutraceutical markets with a line of natural-based medicines and tonics that rely on the company's bioresonance formulations.
The company has produced a flight spray for airline travelers, a nose and spray treatment and has more recently branched out into a topical skin tonic – Hawaiian Mist – which combines herbs and other natural ingredients to fight against rashes, sunburns and insect bites. Its products rely on the efficacy of the phytochemical signature contained in distilled herbal plants. The company's Bioponic method involves advanced laboratory distillation to derive the biochemical signature of specific phytomedicinal plant. Now this technology is about to be applied to the four facial tonics developed for Malie, a company that specializes in the development and distribution of natural fragrance and personal care products. Those tonics include Rescue, which is formulated with lilikoi and lemon grass; Renew, formulated with ginger and lime; Purify, which includes guava and pineapple; and Beautify with jasmine and rose. The products are expected to be launched onto the health and beauty market, as well as the spa market and have already been unveiled at the International SPA Association show at Las Vegas, Nevada.
"This is a solid production contract that, over time, will add substantial revenue and profit to our bottom line. We anticipate the contract is worth $500,000 in the next 12 to 18 months,” said Steven Schorr, Chairman & CEO of Bioponic Phytoceuticals.
”The Malie contract plays to the strengths of both companies, our proprietary technology and formulation expertise and their packaging and marketing savvy."
