( EMAILWIRE.COM, February 02, 2011 ) Boca Raton, FL -- Robin Powell, a professional hair care veteran who has grown several companies over four decades of industry experience, has joined the board of directors and will head global business development at Divine Skin Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:DSKX.ob - News), which markets topical treatments under the brands DS Laboratories, Sigma Skin, Polaris Research, and The Pure Guild. This is a surprising development, as Powell has come out of retirement to join the team at Divine Skin.
Powell has a long line of successful ventures in the professional hair care industry. In the early eighties, he joined Sebastian as a small family business selling a new line of salon products and Powell was instrumental in building international distribution which culminated in the early nineties in the sale of Sebastian International to Wella which later became part of Procter & Gamble.
In 1994, after the sale of Sebastian, Powell was invited by the Mascolo brothers to join TIGI. Known at the time for Toni & Guy salons and education, the Mascolos wanted to build a global professional hair care brand. Within a few years, as VP of Business Development Worldwide and a member of the TIGI board of directors, Powell propelled the TIGI Bed Head line into over one hundred countries with the eventual sale of TIGI to Unilever for more than $400 million.
Divine Skin coaxed Powell out of retirement because, according to CEO Daniel Khesin, "He came to believe that Divine Skin is pursuing the most innovative path in personal care, with products that attract repeat customers and facilitate easy entry into new markets.
...
Robin feels that this could be his biggest venture yet.
"Robin Powell is a legend in this industry," continued Khesin.
...
We are now much more efficient because Robin knows the people in each region who are the best fit for us. So he gets us on the phone with the right decision makers, and we just have to ensure them we can supply enough product. Really, it's unbelievable."
Powell said, "Divine Skin has all the right pieces in place, there is a 'wow' factor and efficacy that is simply unmatched in the industry.

Divine Skin Hires Robin Powell as President
2011-07-27 | 08:56
Divine Skin Inc. has tapped Robin Powell, a long-time leader in the cosmetics industry, to become its president. "I was coaxed out of retirement by Divine Skin because I believe their innovative products are unmatched in the hair-care industry," said Powell. "They give proven results with a 'wow' factor." Powell's background includes stints at Sebastian and TIGI. He joined Sebastian in its early days and was responsible for building international distribution prior to its sale to Wella, later acquired by Procter & Gamble. Then he joined TIGI and propelled distribution into a hundred countries prior to its sale to Unilever. Divine Skin offers a dozen shampoos, conditioners, and leave-in treatments for men and women with hair loss. Unlike mass-market competitors, the company's products come both with and without minoxidil and incorporate complex peptides, androgen inhibitors, procyanidin, and other proven compounds, many encapsulated for greater absorption and efficacy. "At a time when there are so many brands competing for a share of the business, this uniqueness facilitates entry into new markets and builds repeat business," added Powell, who joined Divine Skin as head of global business development and began growing distribution almost immediately.
In May the company announced new agreements with four regional distributors that sell to 27,000 salons and hair-care professionals across 14 US states. "I am delighted to offer my guidance and experience," said Powell. "With the team we now have in place, I believe Divine Skin has an incredible future and will continue to grow at a remarkable pace," he said.
