PCA SKIN(R) Forms Alliance With Renowned Dermatologist and Executive

    Leading Skin Care Line Undergoes Changes in Company Leadership and Product

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 23 /CNW/ -- Jennifer Linder, M.D., a board-
certified dermatologist, Mohs skin cancer surgeon, biomedical engineer and
chemist, and Richard Linder, a Harvard Business School graduate, have joined
PCA SKIN as Chief Scientist and CEO respectively. Dr. Linder's extensive
practice experience and commitment to clinical research will further develop
PCA SKIN's product pipeline, while Mr. Linder's expertise in international
business will expand the markets offering the line.
    "PCA SKIN's commitment to developing products with the highest quality
ingredients that provide consumers with solutions for problems ranging from
acne to melasma, attracted me to become more involved with the brand," stated
Dr. Linder. "With all of the skin care options that consumers can choose from,
it is important to remain committed to providing products that contain
researched and proven ingredients."
    In her new role, Dr. Linder leads all product development and clinical
trials for PCA SKIN, developing new products that bridge the gap between
aesthetics and medicine. Richard Linder, whose interest in the healthcare
field dates back to his studies at Harvard, has expanded the offering of PCA
SKIN professional treatments and daily care products to medical professionals
in over 60 countries. The company has put global skin care education at the
forefront of its mission.
    Founder Margaret Ancira, who developed PCA SKIN in 1990 as the first
clinically researched, medical grade professional treatment and daily care
product line sold directly to physicians and clinical aestheticians, also
remains an integral part of the PCA SKIN organization. Though Dr. Linder and
Richard Linder are now at the forefront of product development and business
relations, Ms. Ancira's role is vital to PCA SKIN's continued success, serving
as an ambassador for the company and the brand through speaking engagements at
industry tradeshows and contributions in national trade publications. The
impressive trio of Dr. Linder, Mr. Linder and Ms. Ancira comprises a strategic
partnership combining the best of aesthetics, science and business expertise
in the cosmeceutical industry.
    "Dr. Linder and Richard bring exciting ideas, a rare expertise in
chemistry and an unparalleled commitment to quality to PCA SKIN," commented
Ms. Ancira. "Under their leadership, PCA SKIN will continue to grow and thrive
globally. I am thrilled to have them onboard and our partnership thus far has
been a success."
    New Leadership, New Branding
    In addition to the new leadership, the company has officially re-branded
itself as PCA SKIN. PCA Professional(TM) Products, PCA(R) MEN, and PCA SKIN(R)
Clinical Care Products will fall under the new umbrella of PCA SKIN in order
to clarify the company's vast product offerings. To complement these changes,
PCA SKIN has also recently launched new product packaging. The new packaging
will help to enhance the existing PCA SKIN professional treatment and daily
care lines and better communicate the new direction in which the company is
