PINCKNEY, Mich. (February 22, 2011)—Joshua Tree Skin Care, maker of organic and natural products designed to support an active outdoor lifestyle, announces a public relations partnership with Forte Creative Media PR (FCM), effective immediately.
This year marks a decade of healing, protecting and revitalizing skin for Joshua Tree Skin Care, or “JTree.” The brand originally established itself in the rock climbing market with its popular healing salve that’s effective in treating cuts, chaffing, sunburns and bug bits. Today, other products available are lip balms, including Desert Shimmers – a collection of organic lip balms available in three shades, and face sticks including Winter Stick (SPF 15) and Sun Stick (SPF 33); both are water, sweat and freeze proof.
Through traditional and social media, FCM PR will raise brand awareness and strengthen JTree’s reach throughout the active outdoor and natural beauty markets.
“We looked to work with an agency that understands the distinctive elements of our brand and to grow our audience, and Forte Creative Media is a natural fit,” says David Lawrence, Joshua Tree Skin Care’s president and CEO who acquired the brand in 2007. In addition to engaging FCM’s public relations services, JTree will launch a new website later this spring that will offer consumers a seamless online shopping experience and a look at the company’s unique production process.
“As an avid climber and snowboarder, I’ve been a believer in Joshua Tree’s products for years, so it’s an honor for FCM to have the opportunity to be a part of the brand’s growth,” says Stephanie Forte, Forte Creative Media PR’s president. “JTree’s unique production process and commitment to using the finest ingredients is evident in the effectiveness of its products. We’re excited to share the brand’s message and news.”
