Montreal, QC—March 18th, 2019— Altius Healthcare, a division of the Devonian Group, has chosen energi PR as its PR Agency of Record for Purgenesis, its specialty line of evidence-based skin care products. The product will be available exclusively through dermatologists and medical spas across the country.
“Being able to understand and communicate the science behind our product was a deciding factor in working with energi PR”, said Sybil Dahan, President of Altius Healthcare. “Our messages to consumers, and our distribution through skin care experts requires layers of expertise, not only in terms of the traditional promotion of beauty products, but a solid appreciation of our evidence.”
energi PR specializes in consumer health and wellness and medical science communications. Their decades of experience in dermatology, skincare and medical aesthetics includes work for Proctor & Gamble beauty brands, Galderma Canada, Bausch Healthcare (formerly Valeant), CoverFX, FACES and Clarion to name but a few.
“We are excited to be working with the Altius team in bringing this novel product line to market and to deploying our experience across the spectrum of skin health,” said Carol Levine, CEO of energi PR. “The upcoming product reveal will challenge our team to bring the scientific evidence forward in a way that is relevant and meaningful. Canadians have repeatedly confirmed their trust of doctors when it comes to their health and we look forward to helping consumers get the best advice and the best products.”
