Robin Powell Becomes President at Biotech Leader Divine Skin (DSKX)
Date:7/25/2011

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., July 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rising star Divine Skin Inc. (DSKX), which has been expanding the hair-growth sector, announced the appointment of Robin Powell, a long-time leader in the cosmetics industry, to become its president.

"I was coaxed out of retirement by Divine Skin because I believe their innovative products are unmatched in the hair-care industry," said Powell. "They give proven results with a 'wow' factor."

A dozen Divine Skin shampoos, conditioners, and leave-in treatments have multiplied the options available for men and women with hair loss. Unlike mass-market competitors, Divine Skin's products come both with and without minoxidil and incorporate complex peptides, androgen inhibitors, procyanidin, and other proven compounds, many encapsulated for greater absorption and efficacy.

"At a time when there are so many brands competing for a share of the business, this uniqueness facilitates entry into new markets and builds repeat business," added Powell, who joined Divine Skin as head of global business development and began growing distribution almost immediately. In May the company announced new agreements with four regional distributors that sell to 27,000 salons and hair-care professionals across 14 US states.

Robin Powell's long line of successful ventures includes Sebastian and TIGI. He joined Sebastian in its early days and was responsible for building international distribution prior to its sale to Wella, later acquired by Procter & Gamble. Then he joined TIGI and propelled distribution into a hundred countries prior to its sale to Unilever.

"I am delighted to offer my guidance and experience," said Powell. "With the team we now have in place, I believe Divine Skin has an incredible future and will continue to grow at a remarkable pace."
