Sedona, Ariz. (December 14, 2016)- Body Bliss, one of the leading US-based natural product manufacturers, announced today that Pam Sculthorp has joined the company as CEO. With extensive business and management experience and a passion for aromatherapy, Ms. Sculthorp is ideally suited to manage the continuing growth of Body Bliss’ core business for luxury spas and resorts while exploring new markets.
“I’ve been at the helm of Body Bliss since the Company’s early days-I am thrilled that Pam will now be leading the company, so I can focus on what I do best-globally sourcing the finest ingredients and creating therapeutic aromatherapy solutions for our clients,” said founder Nick James. “We will continue to produce the finest, therapeutic grade botanical extracts and essential oils for our resort and spa partners. In that sense, it is business as usual.”
British-born Nick James was born and raised in a botanical dynasty. His early years were spent following his grandfather and uncles in search of rare plants. After graduating with an MA in Botanical Science from Oxford University, James spent a decade in Asia studying Ayurveda and other healing modalities. He moved to Sedona, Arizona in 2000 and co-founded Body Bliss.
“I’m continually impressed by the integrity of Nick and his team, and the exceptional quality of the handcrafted Body Bliss products. As an Arizona resident, I love that the Company sources local indigenous botanicals, as well as pure essential oils from around the globe. Nick actually meets with the farmers and distillers-which is rare these days,” says Ms. Sculthorp “The products exceed the stringent standards of luxury resorts and spas, and Body Bliss’s long-standing client base proves their products are the finest quality skin and body care products available anywhere. In light of the growing wellness movement, I see endless opportunities for Body Bliss.”
Ms. Sculthorp brings the experience of a successful career in quality management and consulting in the Biotech Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industries and significant investment to support short and long-term goals. Initiatives in 2017 include streamlining Body Bliss’ product development, inventory controls, and manufacturing, systems, and updating and improving the company website, while nurturing the relationships with current clients and exploring new opportunities for growth.
“Body Bliss was formed with the express intention of creating products formulated using the purest, most effective ingredients, to enhance the health and well-being of therapist and guest alike. Pam comes to Body Bliss with a strong business mind, along with an understanding of the nature of our alchemy,” adds James. “Our products hold specific intentions encoded in the formulations for a defined, positive outcome for well-being.”
