New York, NY (Vocus) February 23, 2010
A new e-commerce site 3floz.com has just arrived to change the way we travel. Co-founders Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz wondered for years why they couldn’t find all of their favorite beauty products in travel-friendly sizes to take along on their frequent travels for both work and pleasure -- so they took their combined 11 years in the beauty industry and launched 3floz.com to carry name brand, high end beauty, grooming and personal care items that are all 3 fl oz or less. Convenient services include international shipping, even direct to hotels, and same-day delivery within Manhattan via courier. Customers can receive an upgrade to overnight shipping for the price of ground by including a flight itinerary showing travel within three days.
The idea for 3floz.com was born in June of 2009 and by November 2009 Duff and Mintz had left Los Angeles and were settled in their Manhattan offices. The site that went live early February carries men’s and women’s products in a variety of categories, including skincare, haircare, nailcare and more, with a vast selection of organic and natural products. The brand list for the launch reads like an industry who’s who, with Philip B, Go Smile, Ole Henriksen, Malin + Goetz, Air Repair, Archipelago Botanicals, Anthony for Men and more, including travel kits from Ahava, The Art of Shaving, Dr. Hauschka, Jonathan and Yes to Carrots. Online exclusives include Phyto Haircare, Baxter of California, and Blow.
With most airlines charging to check even just one bag, 3floz.com is for savvy travelers who demand convenience, do not want to deal with the hassle and fees associated with checking a bag, and aren’t willing to sacrifice their routine while away. 3floz.com also caters to the urban traveler who is always on the go, from work to the gym to drinks, and carries their entire life in their bag. Who hasn’t been curious to try a new product that a friend recommended, or they saw a celebrity use? For those customers not ready or willing to splurge on full-sized items, 3floz.com offers the perfect way to try out new products without as large of an investment. Items on 3floz.com range from $3-$110.
New brands are constantly being added, and plans for the future include the addition of baby products, cosmetics, travel-friendly beauty and grooming tools, and accessories.
