Leed's Enters Health and Beauty Category as Exclusive Supplier of Mission Skincare
New Kensington, Pennsylvania-based Leed’s, a member of Polyconcept North America, the second largest hard goods supplier within the promotional products industry, has entered into the health and beauty aids (HBA) category through a partnership with retail brand MISSION Skincare. In 2008, MISSION Skincare created a new category of skincare at the intersection of sports and personal care, after more than three years of research and development. The brand was co-founded by some of the world’s greatest athletes, including Sergio Garcia, Serena Williams, Mia Hamm and David Wright, and offers an athlete-engineered line of high-performance skincare and sun-care products. Four MISSION Skincare sets are being offered by Leed’s within its Return To Giving holiday gift launch. Each set consists of three MISSION Skincare products, packaged in a decorated, durable accessories pouch. The MISSION Skincare products themselves are manufactured in the USA, are certified by the FDA, are animal cruelty free, and support the charities of its athlete co-founders.
“By partnering with the MISSION Skincare brand and its highly recognizable athlete co-founders, Leed’s is able to offer our distributors distinctive options for HBA promotions that they won’t find anywhere else,” enthused Jeff Brown, chief marketing officer for Polyconcept North America. “The team at MISSION Skincare has taken HBA products to the next level, in terms of quality, durability, and the element of giving back. We’re proud to bring their products to the promotional products market and offer the brand’s unique combination of benefits to our distributors and end-users for their HBA gifts.”
Said Sergio Garcia, MISSION co-founder, “Playing at my best requires that I’m on top of my game, and protecting and enhancing my skin on the course is as important as using the right clubs. Along with over a dozen other professional athletes like Serena Williams, Mia Hamm and others, I co-founded MISSION to deliver the best products for anyone and everyone who lives an on-the-go, active lifestyle.” Garcia continued, “Whether on the golf course, traveling for business or being a weekend-warrior, MISSION Skincare products have you covered from head to toe. I am excited that the MISSION brand is partnering with Leed’s/Polyconcept North America, one of the strongest suppliers in the promotional products industry, in delivering world-class product innovations to their customers.”
