Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) December 17, 2012
Naked Brand Group Inc. (“Naked” or the “Company”) (OTCQB:NAKD) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Haneef Alibhai to the Company’s advisory board. As an esteemed physician, cosmetic surgeon and successful entrepreneur, Dr. Alibhai will offer important insight to the Company as it looks to develop men’s and women’s skincare products and fragrances. Dr. Alibhai is experienced in product development having launched a popular dermal/skincare line at his cosmetic and laser clinic.
The personal care industry is projected to hit the $333 billion mark by 2015 according to Global Industry Analysts. In particular, items such as shaving products, razors, and lip care products for men should see a substantial increase. This is attributed to people having more disposable income in their hands as well as advances in technology that allow smaller companies to compete in the world markets. As such, Dr. Alibhai will provide strategic insight enabling the Company to enter this market with confidence.
Dr. Alibhai is the Past-President of the Canadian Association of Aesthetic Medicine and he is a clinical instructor for the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Medicine. He is also a faculty member of the Canadian Association of Aesthetic Medicine and the National Society of Cosmetic Physicians. Currently, Dr. Alibhai is the medical director of MD Cosmetic and Laser Clinic located in Abbotsford, BC where he is also the director of training.
For over a decade, Dr. Alibhai has been training physicians and dentists on various applications in aesthetic medicine. He is a Certified Physician Trainer for Allergan (Botox Cosmetic, Juvederm) and since 2002, has trained over 900 doctors and dentists worldwide. He is also an internationally recognized speaker and author having written articles for Aesthetic Trends & Technologies, Aesthetic Buyers Guide, Healthy Aging Magazine and several other aesthetic magazines and journals.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Alibhai join our advisory board. His tremendous success in aesthetic medicine and cosmetics brings a unique skill set to the advisory board.
