The Mixed Martial Artist, dubbed the Venezuelan Vixen, will collaborate to drive brand awareness as No BS expands omni-channel
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Simply Better Brands Corp. (the “Company” or Simply Better Brands”) (TSX Venture: SBBC) (OTCQB: PKANF) is pleased to announce a sponsorship agreement and collaboration between Simply Better Brand’s subsidiary, No B.S. Life, LLC (“No B.S. Skincare” or “No B.S.”) and Julianna Peña, the mixed martial artist who won the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship this past December and was named MMA Junkie’s Female Fighter of the Year.
“Julianna represents what No B.S. Skincare is about, she is an amazing inspiration, breaking stereotypes from all angles. Being a woman does not mean we can’t be strong and win UFC championships and being a fighter does not mean we can’t take care of how our face looks. If you want your skin to look good, it must be healthy. This is why we developed a skincare line with no toxic ingredient or BS and this is why Julianna is the perfect partner to inspire people to break stereotypes and cut out all of the unnecessary, toxic BS they don’t need, starting with their skin care,” says Diana Briceno, CEO and founder of No B.S. Skincare.
The sponsorship encompasses curated and authentic content consistent with No B.S. brand’s authentic positioning ultimately, driving brand awareness via social media integration, public relation activation, and potential product innovation collaboration.
“As a professional athlete and champion, the most important standard I set for myself is to be the best. I have no tolerance for BS which is why I am so excited to be joining the No B.S. Skincare team. I don’t skip steps in training and I don’t skip steps in my skincare routine. I only put clean products on my skin. And No B.S. Skincare provides the one of the cleanest products on the market. It’s an honor to be able to share my love for No B.S. with the public and help them benefit from these amazing products,” says Julianna Peña.
Originally built as a direct-to-consumer brand, No B.S. will leverage Julianna to continue its omni-channel expansion in 2022. Now with a presence at Amazon and Target, the brand is gaining traction in the drug class of trade with a commitment to enter CVS this year. “The trusted and transparent brand of No B.S. resonates with today’s consumers as part of their wellness transformation. We consistently acquire loyal users lapsing from large mass brands with less clean formulas. Our focus is now on continued science-led innovation and ubiquitous distribution to meet increased demand,” said Kathy Casey, Simply Better Brands’ CEO.
