ROK Stars, the consumer goods and environmental technologies development company, has announced it will supply natural supplements retailer, Holland & Barrett, with its Marula Oil products for retail across the UK.
Holland & Barrett is Europe’s leading retailer of vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements whose 620 stores are a familiar sight in almost every major city and town across the United Kingdom.
“We were very excited to have acquired the highly effective Marula Oil skincare brand in November last year because we believed Marula Oil would fit perfectly within our mandate to acquire, develop and market highly innovative and effective consumer brands.” Said Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman of ROK Stars. “As such, it’s great news that we have secured the highly prestigious Holland & Barrett as our first major retail partner in the UK.”
Holland & Barrett represent the first major milestone in ROK Stars plans to implement an aggressive sales strategy to expand the retail of Marula Oil in the US and around the world.
Lucy Pottinger and Louise Ingham, from Holland & Barrett’s Ethical Beauty Buying Team commented “We were very impressed with the efficacy of Marula Oil, as well as its Fair Trade associations. We are hugely excited to offer yet another innovative new product within our growing ethical beauty category and we feel confident that our customers will fall in love with this product just as quickly as we did!”
Currently the Marula Oil product range consists of 1 oz. and 1.7 oz. bottles of Marula Oil, a facial and cleansing lotion with several more products in development, including an intensive, hydrating eye cream and a luxurious lip balm.
Marula Oil is a Fair Trade partnership derived from wild-harvested, hand-selected Marula nuts in Africa to deliver a multifunctional anti-aging premium facial oil that hydrates, protects, and rejuvenates the skin. Specially formulated for the face and neck, Marula Oil is a naturally soothing treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for soft, radiant skin. It is suitable for all skin types, contains a high content of omega acids and can be used alone as a highly effective anti-aging moisturizer, added to other facial products to boost their efficacy, soothe skin after facial treatments or sunburn, or used as a perfect makeup primer.
Marula Oil is a completely sustainable product as only the fallen fruit is collected. Marula Oil is a proud member of both the Fair Trade Association and of Green America. It is doctor-endorsed, scientifically validated, and clinically proven to be effective.
