America’s First Skin Care Company Enlists Top Industry Expert Jeannie Frazier to Launch Patent-pending Technology in the Professional Spa & Medical Markets

NEW YORK, N.Y. (May 9, 2018) F.C. Sturtevant, America’s first skin care company, announced today a collaboration with Spa Curated, a representation firm headed by Jeannie Frazier. Leveraging her 25 years of industry experience, Frazier will introduce F.C. Sturtevant’s revolutionary skin care line, Columbia SkinCare, to the spa and medical markets. Columbia SkinCare has received national recognition as the first probiotic complex for topical use.

“I am very excited to be representing Columbia SkinCare for F.C. Sturtevant Company.” says Frazier. I have been using the products for a few weeks and have fallen in love! Columbia Probiotics patent-pending technology is the world’s first strain-specific probiotics created for topical usage. These clinically-proven, multi-functional products cater to the significant and growing health and wellness market, largely unaddressed by the traditional, cosmetically-focused, luxury skincare category.”

Frazier brings more than 25 years of experience and attendant knowledge and insight to the health, wellness and beauty arenas in the context of luxury spas all over the globe. Her background includes extensive experience in sales, education and business development in luxury spa resorts in the U.S. and Europe. She developed the prestige hair care market in luxury resorts with Rene Furterer and later Bumble and Bumble. Her most recent position was with luxury brand THEMAE Paris, where she served as the Company’s Vice President of Business Development for the Americas. She has also worked with luxury skin care brands Luzerne, Sundari and Australian brand Sodashi.

“Closing a new spa or medical account is satisfying of course, but the real proof of success lies in whether the products leave the shelf. I thrive on setting my clients up for success, through constant communication, creative marketing ideas and support tools,” adds Frazier.

“Having the opportunity to bring in Spa Curated will help us take Columbia SkinCare to the next level,” says Gunnar Wilmot, the Company’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Jeannie’s experience and sales acumen will allow us to find ideal resort, day spa and medical spa partners, as well as provide the ongoing support to ensure long term success. We could not be more pleased with this new addition to our team!”
