|CVS/pharmacy and Salma Hayek Introduce Nuance Salma Hayek|
WOONSOCKET, R.I., Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
CVS/pharmacy, the nation's leading retail pharmacy, today announced the introduction of the exclusive beauty collection, Nuance Salma Hayek. Co-developed by actress Salma Hayek and CVS/pharmacy, Nuance Salma Hayek is a full beauty line offering high-quality products designed to enhance every woman's individual beauty, at a price that she can afford. The comprehensive collection of more than 100 products within four categories - skincare, cosmetics, haircare and body - is available only at CVS/pharmacy locations nationwide and on cvs.com/nuancesalmahayek.
The first complete beauty line developed by an actress in partnership with a national retailer, Nuance Salma Hayek was inspired by Hayek's grandmother, a cosmetologist who developed her own homemade beauty remedies. An embodiment of her rich family heritage, the products in the Nuance Salma Hayek line represent the fusion of advanced, proprietary formulations and personal beauty rituals passed down from generations. Each product in the line was inspired by Hayek's own beauty rituals as well as her extensive global travels. Many ingredients, such as tepezcohuite, blue agave, prickly pear and lime enzyme, are being used in exclusive beauty formulas available to the mass market for the first time. Hayek rigorously tested every product in the line, partnering with formulators to ensure the highest standards and results.
"I wanted to create a line of premium beauty products that were both effective and affordable using the ingredients and knowledge passed down to me from my grandmother," said Hayek. "My partnership with CVS/pharmacy allowed me to be truly involved in every aspect of product development, bringing my vision to life in making a line that is available to all women, who are entitled to preserve their youth no matter what."
