Preston Private Label Products and Colorlab Announce Strategic Partnership

Preston Private Label Products—a premier supplier of professional grade spa and esthetics products to the trade—and Colorlab Private Label Cosmetics announce an agreement to co-promote their product groups and co-educate customers in the spa and esthetics market.

"Preston Private Label Products has long sought a resource for high quality private label cosmetics to complement our skin and body care collections," reports Douglas Preston, President of Preston Inc. "Colorlab's unique concept, custom blending capabilities and superb customer care make it an ideal partner for meeting a pent-up demand among our many spa accounts.

Mary Swaab, Chief Executive Officer of Colorlab added, "We are tremendously excited to partner with Douglas Preston and the Preston Inc. team. Their expertise, reputation, and experience, along with the high quality of their skin care products, are the perfect fit for our mineral-based ready-to-wear and custom color cosmetics products. This alliance will allow both of us to offer a more complete private label solution to our spa, salon, and medical center clientele."

The two companies plan to offer integrated training courses that highlight technical skills with success sales strategies for spa personnel, management, and independent beauty professionals. Class titles, locations and dates will be announced soon, however, the Chicago area and Santa Fe, NM will be among the venues where classes are held. The new relationship was kicked off at the 2008 International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Conference in Las Vegas, NV in July.

Preston Private Label Products and Yum Gourmet Skincare serve a growing segment of the professional esthetics market seeking results-driven private label spa products and, more recently, organic-based esthetic collections. Douglas Preston is a 26-year licensed esthetician, spa owner and spa business consultant renown for original treatment methods and customer service standards.
