KUNMING, China, Dec. 6 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Shenghuo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. ("China Shenghuo," "the Company") (Amex: KUN), which is engaged in the research, development, manufacture, and marketing of pharmaceutical, nutritional supplement and cosmetic products in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced it has won a bid to launch its new television commercial promoting China Shenghuo's 12Ways(R) Chinese Herbal Cosmetics on China Central Television ("CCTV").

"We are excited to increase our customers' awareness of Chinese herbal cosmetics by launching the 12Ways television commercials on CCTV, which is well-recognized in China," said Mr. Gui Hua Lan, China Shenghuo's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "China's hosting of the 2008 Olympics will bring enormous attention to the event and the nation from all over the world. This provides us with an excellent opportunity to increase the public's awareness of 12Ways skin care, which is an essential part of the product line's success."
