Quest Products launches ProVent Rosacea Moisturizing Creme
GURNEE, Ill. – Quest Products on Wednesday announced the national launch of ProVent Rosacea Moisturizing Creme, a creme formulated to help reduce the appearance of skin conditions often associated with rosacea and other skin conditions, including skin redness, age spots, facial rashes, dry skin and sun-related damage.
ProVent Rosacea Moisturizing Creme benefits from Quest Products’ proprietary Intradermal Delivery System, a patented and patent-pending technology that allows for the effective delivery of nutritional or cosmetic ingredients into the skin. ProVent’s skin care scientists identified a complex matrix of skin-essential nutrients in a broad range of botanical ingredients. Each intradermal formulation is designed to address specific skin challenges and deliver nutrition where it is needed most to the developing new skin.
The ProVent Rosacea Moisturizing Creme is formulated with Green Tree Extract, Milk Thistle and Grape Seed Extract, ingredients known to have natural anti-inflammatory benefits and promote healthy skin. Formulated for both men and women, the creme contains no parabens, artificial dyes or fragrances, and absorbs rapidly into the skin.
Reports: Sponsors get green light to circulate North Dakota pharmacy measure petition
BISMARCK, N.D. — Sponsors of a proposed ballot measure that would repeal a 50-year-old section of state law that requires pharmacies to be majority-owned by pharmacists who are licensed in North Dakota can start circulating their petition for signatures, according to published reports.
According to reports, Secretary of State Al Jaeger announced his approval of the petition format on Tuesday. Now the committee must work to gather at least 13,452 qualified signatures by Aug. 6 in order to get the measure on the Nov. 4 ballot.
The approved petition states that the ballot measure would “remove the requirement that an applicant for a permit to operate a pharmacy must be a licensed pharmacist, a business controlled by licensed pharmacists, or a hospital pharmacy or postgraduate medical residency training program,” according to reports.
Retail Solutions, Gigwalk team up to improve in-store execution
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and SAN FRANCISCO — Retail Solutions, a provider of cloud-based, big data analytics and real-time intelligence for the consumer products industry, has selected Gigwalk, the local visibility software platform, to power its new RSi Intelligent Crowdsourcing solution.
Under the terms of the agreement, RSi Intelligent Crowdsourcing will combine RSi’s daily downstream data and alerting capabilities with Gigwalk’s platform for on-demand access to Gigwalk’s public network of 550,000 mobile-enabled independent contractors. The integration will enable retailers and brands to gather and share in-store intelligence, identify gaps in the supply chain and trigger actions at the store level to correct errors in near real time.
Each year, $800 billion in revenue is lost globally to avoidable issues like out-of-stocks. Using RSi Intelligent Crowdsourcing powered by Gigwalk, suppliers can accurately detect store or event conditions, send real-time fix notices to store teams, share observations with the value chain and reclaim lost sale, the company stated. Pilot testing prior to launch, which was completed with five retailers and multiple suppliers, resulted in an average ROI of eight times the original investment. In some instances, returns as high as 18% were achieved over a few weeks.
"This is a truly new and innovative approach to solving many store-related problems," stated Peter Rieman, COO of RSi. "By combining hyper-local, crowdsourced intelligence with real-time alerting and mobile technology, we are — in many cases — providing the most cost-effective and timely way to understand, audit and solve in-store activation issues. We believe this solution is a game changer for the industry, and we expect to expand this capability to address multiple in-store challenges, including on-shelf availability, display compliance, new product introduction, seasonality and more."
With RSi Intelligent Crowdsourcing, CPG manufacturers can know with certainty that each critical piece of their strategy is being executed correctly at the store level. The new solution takes the guesswork out of retail execution initiatives, like ensuring proper execution of promotional displays, new item planogram compliance or preempting risks for out-of-stocks, the company stated.
"You can’t manage, what you can’t see," added Bob Bahramipour, CEO of Gigwalk. "Gigwalk eliminates blind spots to increase in-store sales. By bringing together RSi’s sophisticated algorithm-based, on-shelf alerting and scorecard reporting with Gigwalk’s local insights and on-the-ground resources, we are transforming traditional models of visibility, collaboration and action — enabling brands and retailers to achieve new levels of retail execution and compliance."
