Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS)(OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt: YG3) announces that its Urban Juve natural skincare and personal wellness and grooming solutions will soon be available for purchase in 70 retail locations within Ontario, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. City spas, mountain resorts, naturopathic practices, wellness stores, and hair salons are now carrying Urban Juve’s hemp-infused, unisex skin and body care products. Retailers include: Healthy Planet, Dr Kristen Bovee ND, Elements Naturopathic and Wellness Centre, The Glamoury, Happy Hair Salon, Leaf Compassion, Market on Millstream, Renew Spa, St. George Integrative Pharmacy, Rouge Naturals, Wellth Pharmacy, Delineation Salon and Yes Wellness.
This news is announced as presentations are underway with several multi-national retail chains and the company’s more robust e-commerce interface enters its final development stage.
“Even though we have just launched, having the former COO of M.A.C Cosmetics Thomas Bond at the helm of our Board of Directors supports our intention and capacity for international expansion and scalability,” says Urban Juve President Sandi Lesueur. “His experience paired with our unique brand of affordable luxury skincare — one that is effective for all skin types including the most sensitive, due to the absence of harsh chemicals — sees us poised for market acceptance and growth. These results are quick and impressive.”
“Urban Juve marketing efforts and sales strategies — from SEO, relationship and content marketing, social and traditional media relations — all support the company’s retail presence and foothold,” says Lesueur. “Our goal is to become the most trusted skincare brand for our expertise and patents around hemp root oil. While developing strategic relationships with major retailers is our goal, we are delighted to see grassroots independents adopting our goods in these early days. Hand-in-hand with retailers big and small, we are proud to be reaching consumers in major centres and more remote communities first in Canada and soon throughout North America and beyond.”
With products that appeal equally to male and female shoppers, young and mature, Urban Juve is marketed to millennials but is finding its way into the vanities, purses, and luggage of older luxury consumers as well.
“Our products answer the call for natural, effective and affordable innovation,” says Lesueur. “Age matters less than values for our early customers.”
With product development, patent applications, operational systems, distribution and marketing platforms in place, The Yield Growth Corp. is confident in its next steps to pave the way for digital and traditional retail sales, building consumer awareness and loyalty.
