SADDLE BROOK, N.J., Oct. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Herborium Group, Inc., (Pink Sheets:HBRM) , a Botanical Therapeutics™ company, today announced it has retained SmallCap Support Services, a Houston based investor, media, and public relations firm.
"I am pleased to engage SmallCap Support Services to handle our growing investor relations needs and increase our trade & popular press coverage," commented Dr. Agnes P. Olszewski, Herborium Group's president and chief executive officer. "SmallCap ensures all Company information released will be clear and accurately conveyed.
"Herborium develops and markets novel, clinically tested Botanical Therapeutics® (botanical medicines), a distinctly separate product classification compared to simple nutraceuticals. Our products' differential advantage rests in clinical testing of its safety and efficacy and drives product development opportunities by the use of U.S. Food & Drug Administration (2004) and European Medicines Agency guidelines.
"Therefore, we required an IR/PR firm with the capacity to develop a working knowledge of Herborium and our products' differential market advantages. After careful consideration, I am pleased to announce SmallCap is such a firm.
"As we finalize marketing plans, I expect further personnel will also be needed to support our new product exposure initiatives, in particular, Herborium's new 2011 U.S. marketing campaign to aggressively promote its flagship product, AcnEase®."
AcnEase is a proprietary, botanical therapeutic product taken orally that prevents acne from forming in both females and males of all ages. Furthermore, AcnEase has been proven safe and effective in the treatment of both acne and rosacea through rigorous clinical testing ().
"Roche's Accutane® was the leading prescriptive oral acne medication, until being removed from the market due to serious side-effects. The withdrawal of Accutane has presented Herborium with an enormous opportunity to capture market share with AcnEase -- the only all-natural, safe, and effective oral acne medicine."
"In conclusion, I look forward to soon sharing updates on AcnEase as well as our international sales," Olszewski concluded.
