Luxurious skin truffle brand SKIN&CO lands partnership in the airline industry
SKIN&CO’s unique Italian botanical based skin and body care lines are infused with enticing fragrances by master French perfumers and truffle extract harvested from the Brand’s farms in Italy.
These products will be soon available in First and Business Class as well as lounges and lavatories worldwide thanks to Albèa Travel Designer (France).
From the family that brought the world Sabatino Truffles, an exquisite Italian gourmet truffle brand that recently partnered with Oprah Winfrey and The Kraft-Heinz Company, comes SKIN&CO Travel, a branch of the brand SKIN&CO that will solely focus on amenity distribution around the world, expanding its already renowned travel-size business.
Albèa Travel Designer has developed kits for Clarins, Biologique Recherche, Givenchy and Carita and brings a valuable expertise to the marketplace. “A true meeting of people sharing a common vision and acting with the same passion to leverage new business opportunities. A smart collaboration between experts; SKIN&CO being a booming selective cosmetic, Albèa the leader in primary packaging for cosmetics, perfumes and oral care industry and Albèa Travel Designer, a true player in the airlines market,” said Corinne Brand, Director of Ailines Activities for Albèa Group.
SKIN&CO, a family owned and operated beauty company from Italy, but with offices in the United States and Asia, has recently expanded into the travel industry, partnering with Duty Free outlets in Europe and expanding its deluxe & travel size distribution into the Hotel & Resort category with a custom collection.
Managed by third generation entrepreneur Gabriel Balestra, he brought back his family’s formulas into modern era with SKIN&CO providing the freshest products while preserving and respecting the ancient Umbrian lands they came from. Using only the oldest time-tested recipes, rigorously selected ingredients, and a passion for Italian raw materials, SKIN&CO balances nature and tradition with science and modernity to create the very best for your skin.
“Together with Albèa Travel Designer, we can bring the Mediterranean handcrafted experience in the air and around the globe. The synergies between our two organisations will allows us customise products for airlines and offer the very best to their passengers. Passengers will be pleased to find those products at Duty Free stores or at their favourite beauty stores in the US or abroad,” said Gabriel Balestra, Executive Director for SKIN&CO.
The two companies first presented the partnership and their collection at the WTCE Expo (World Travel Catering and Onboard Expo) in Hamburg last month and are already working on their first distribution agreements.
