Leading Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Doris Day Joins AmLactin® to Kick Off the “Ultra Skin Performance” Campaign
MAPLE GROVE, Minn. – March 15, 2012 – AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care, one of Upsher-Smith Laboratories’ innovative consumer brands, announced today that New York Cosmetic Dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day, will serve as an educational consultant on the brand’s “Ultra Skin Performance” campaign. The campaign is devoted to educating women of all ages about the internal and external elements that contribute to dry skin, one of the most common skin challenges, and features insights into skin care from Dr. Day, who will share “The Fundamentals of Fit Skin” to help women with dry skin strive to look and feel their best at every life stage. Today’s announcement is part of a series of media tactics to help reinvent the AmLactin® line through the debut of contemporary packaging, which is now transitioning into retail stores, to attract women of the 21st century.
“Dr. Day is a highly respected cosmetic dermatologist, an accomplished author and an educator with a practice that is devoted to meeting the needs of today’s women,” said Glenn MacEachern, Director, Product Marketing at Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. “She will be an integral part of the success of the ‘Ultra Skin Performance’ campaign to reach women with vital information about managing their dry skin challenges.”
AmLactin®, the #1 moisturizer brand recommended by dermatologists for rough, dry skin, has shed its skin and is donning a fresh, new look while continuing to bring dry skin sufferers the same effective, hard-working formulas. The makeover comes with a new name: AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care. The contemporary design graces white, pearlescent bottles and tubes complemented by a series of vibrant colors and a signature droplet to convey the line’s intensity and success at helping skin retain its moisture.
“As a woman and a cosmetic dermatologist, I am really honored to be part of a campaign that will help educate women of all ages about the importance of skin care and the many best kept secrets available to get skin to look and feel its best,” said Dr. Day. “AmLactin® is one of these innovative ‘secrets’ available at retail that have helped so many of my patients seeking a solution to dry skin.”
The “Ultra Skin Performance” campaign will feature video blogs of Dr. Day sharing important information about skin care, with appearances from inspirational celebrity guests. The series, entitled ‘Smooth Talk,’ will be housed on www.littleredbumps.com, AmLactin®’s website devoted to soft, silky skin, and integrated into the brand’s Twitter (www.twitter.com/AmLactin) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/AmLactin) pages. AmLactin® plans to host quarterly Twitter chats with Dr. Day focusing on skin beautification.
