Noah’s Naturals redesigns product packages, expands distribution
LOS ANGELES Organics by Noah’s Naturals has repackaged three of its hottest products and has expanded distribution.
“We wanted to provide consumers with a modern, user-friendly package that looks great on display and can easily be tossed into a bag for application on the go,” stated Noah Bremen, founder of Noah’s Naturals. “Tube packaging is more convenient, and the sharp silver tone gives the feel of a prestige product, but at an accessible price point, which is now more important than ever given the economic times.”
The three products that now bear the new, modern packaging are Organics by Noah’s Naturals Rosemary Mint Body Lotion, Coconut Vanilla Body Lotion and Shea Butter Hand Cream. Each product has a suggested retail price of $10.99.
Noah’s Naturals also recently expanded its distribution to include 1,500 Walmart doors, bringing the total to 2,500, in addition to distribution at the former Longs stores (now part of CVS Caremark) and Fred Meyer.
