Borba bringing capsule collection to Walgreens
WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. Borba, a maker of nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals, is expanding its portfolio with an exclusive Walgreens capsule collection of skin care products and supplements.

"Today, women are shopping at retail channels for beauty innovations," stated creator and celebrity esthetician Scott-Vincent Borba. "No longer are cutting-edge, clinically advanced formulas only found at the doctor’s office or department store. I specifically created my Borba Walgreens capsule collection as a way to make my celebrity techniques and approach accessible to all women and am already experiencing an overwhelming response from advanced pre-ordering availability."
To help kick off the national January 2011 debut, Borba has authored a beauty book based on his "inside-out" approach. The book, titled "Skintervention: The Personalized Solution for Healthier, Younger and Flawless-Looking Skin," includes secret celebrity tips, skin-benefiting recipes, lifestyle recommendations and celebrity testimonials.

Energizer clears antitrust hurdle for American Safety Razor
ST. LOUIS Energizer Holdings has obtained U.S. antitrust clearance for the acquisition of American Safety Razor.
The waiting period for the antitrust review under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 has expired. Clearance from regulatory authorities in Germany and Taiwan now must be satisfied before closing.
Energizer stated that it will continue to seek clearance from those authorities in advance of the Nov. 23 deadline in the Asset Purchase Agreement between Energizer and ASR.
As previously reported by Drug Store News, Energizer announced in early October that it was the winning bidder for ASR in bankruptcy court proceedings. Energizer has signed an agreement with ASR to purchase substantially all of ASR’s assets for $301 million in cash and the assumption of certain liabilities.
