NEW YORK, NY - (NewMediaWire) - October 12, 2017 - Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTC PINK: TAUG) ("Tauriga" or the "Company"), engaged in the building of life sciences businesses and technologies, today announced with its licensor Ice + Jam LLC ("Ice + Jam"), that the Companies have selected the week of December 17, 2017 for the formal launch of "HerMan" branded product; a proprietary cupuacu butter lip balm product packaged in the industry standard cylindrical tube. The two Companies have previously announced that the label and graphics were redesigned and improved (this occurred over the past few months). The Company expects that an initial inventory of at least 10,000 HerMan units will be available to support the above-mentioned retail launch.
Tauriga is also pleased to announce that it has established a budget for marketing and promotion to further support this upcoming product launch; Ice + Jam will manage and administer these funds.
From a composition analysis, HerMan is primarily composed of the compound Theobroma Grandiflorium ("Cupuacu Butter" or "Superfruit") to leverage the potential benefits that have been well documented historically (see paragraph directly below). The Reformulation process specifically addresses the following two issues: maintaining a formula as close as possible to 100% Cupuacu Butter and preventing the drying out of the product in the tube (package). This will be accomplished through testing the product with various natural Emollients -- to determine the best way to maintain the Superfruit's natural state and texture.
Cupuacu Butter is derived from the fruit of the Cupuacu Tree; a tropical rainforest tree related to Cacao (the base of chocolate production). Common throughout the Amazon basin (South America), it is widely cultivated in the jungles of Colombia, Bolivia and Peru and in the north of Brazil, with the largest production in Pará, followed by Amazonas, Rondônia and Acre. Cupuacu Butter is a good, plant, alternative to lanolin, offering the capacity to attract 240% more water allowing it to function much more effectively as a skin hydrator and moisturizer. In addition though it's not recognized as an SPF (Sun Protection Factor), Cupuacu Butter is well known for its ability to absorb damaging UVA / UVB rays ("Ultra Violet Rays") for natural sun protection.
Tauriga's CEO Seth M. Shaw expressed, "The Company is very excited to launch this high quality cupuacu butter based lip balm product to the retail marketplace. An enormous amount of work and effort, both laboratory and creative, has gone into the completion of this final product. The week of December 17, 2017 was selected after extensive consultation with potential industry retailers and distributors."
