BY Antoinette Alexander

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. — Ultimark Products has tapped actress Jennie Garth to be the new face of its Porcelana line of skin care products, which is sold in such retailers as Walgreens, Rite Aid, Walmart and Kmart.

Garth, who is perhaps best known from her role in the television hit series “Beverly Hills 90210,” will promote both new and existing Porcelana products and will appear in print advertisements, social media and online marketing.

“Great skin is important to all women and Porcelana now offers an affordable line for all skin types,” Ultimark Products CEO Chris Dominello said.  “We are very excited to have Ms. Garth as the spokesperson for Porcelana to help us grow the brand.”

Porcelana has nearly 40 years of heritage in balancing women’s skin tone. The Porcelana skin care line consists of a day and night cream designed to lighten skin discolorations and even skin tone. In addition, Porcelana has launched three additional products to help women improve their skin’s appearance: Porcelana dark circle treatment, Porcelana stretch mark treatment and Porcelana daily skin tone brightener.

Ultimark Products purchased the Porcelana product line last April from Nicene Brands. Other brands in the Ultimark personal care product portfolio include Prell, Denorex and Zincon.

BY Antoinette Alexander

MILWAUKEE — Carma Labs, the maker of Carmex lip balm products, has expanded its skin care line with the new Carmex Healing Lotion in a 13-oz. pump.

With the addition of the new 13-oz. lotion pump, and other trial and travel sizes now available, Carma Laboratories has developed its skin care line into multiple product sizes. The suggested retail price for the new pump is $10.99.

“Carmex fans have embraced our skin care line since we unveiled the Healing Lotion and Healing Cream last year,” stated Paul Woelbing, president of Carma Labs. “Our goal was to leverage the healing power of Carmex to develop a family of skin care products that work, as well as our popular lip balm. We are excited that we now offer two Carmex skin care formulas in a variety of sizes to serve virtually every customer need.”

Originally sold exclusively at Walgreens and Walgreens.com, Carmex skin care products now will be available this fall at most national chain drug and retail stores including Walmart, CVS, Meijer and Drugstore.com.

Carmex Healing Lotion features aloe and vitamin E to moisturize, heal and protect skin from dryness. In addition to the new 13-oz. pump, Carmex Healing Lotion is available in a 5.5-oz. tube for a suggested retail price of $5.99 and a 1-oz. trial-size tube that retails for 99 cents.

In 2010, Carmex unveiled its new skin care line — Carmex Healing Lotion and Carmex Healing Cream — the first Carmex products outside of the lip balm category.

‘CBS Evening News’ anchor Scott Pelley to be keynote speaker at NACDS Foundation Dinner

BY Antoinette Alexander

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The National Association of Chain Drug Stores Foundation has tapped "CBS Evening News" anchor and managing editor Scott Pelley to be the keynote speaker for the 13th Annual Foundation Dinner on Nov. 29 in New York.

“We are honored that distinguished journalist Scott Pelley will provide the keynote address at this year’s NACDS Foundation Dinner,” stated Edith Rosato, president of the NACDS Foundation.  “We look forward to his captivating accounts and energizing message, crafted with the benefit of a 20-year career on the front line of news and politics.”

An Emmy-award winning journalist, Pelley became a national reporter for CBS News in 1989.  He went on to become the network’s chief White House correspondent.  During his career, he covered some of the biggest domestic and international news stories and interviewed a variety of world leaders, including George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Pelley has received multiple awards for his reporting and investigative work.

Pelley and his "60 Minutes" team provided independent coverage of 2003’s invasion of Iraq, having decided to forego the Pentagon’s approach to “embedding” reporters within the U.S. forces.  He also is known for diverse reporting, including an award-winning investigation of child slavery in India, and an interview in 2008 with Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke — despite the tradition by which the Federal Reserve chairman refrains from such exposure.  In 2002, Pelley was granted the only interview with President George W. Bush on the one-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

“The NACDS Foundation values the opportunity to present highly relevant insights on an evening that celebrates the NACDS Foundation’s highly relevant work to advance public health,” Rosato stated.

The NACDS Foundation is guided by a mission to utilize and support education, research, and charitable involvement to help people improve their health and quality of life through an understanding of medication therapy and the importance of taking medications appropriately.  Each year, the financial support provided by the Annual Dinner benefactors is used to develop programs and research to further advance patient care through community pharmacy.
