Nelson1 ThumbThrough word of mouth marketing, this homeopathic company is still going strong after more than 100 years. A. Nelson & Co. was incorporated by Ernst Louis Armbrecht, a student of Samuel Hahnemann, the founding father of homeopathy. Applying the principles he learned from Hahnemann, Armbrecht opened the first branch of the company in London in 1860. The company remained in the Armbrecht family for several generations before it was purchased by Dick Wilson in the early 1970s. 

Wescan1 ThumbThis company took its years of experience in manufacturing, importing, and distributing eyewear and created its own brands to help it expand globally. Eyeglasses are more than just sight aids. They are a statement of an individual’s personality. For Canada’s Wescan Optical, being on top of market trends has helped the company grow steadily through importing and distribution. Now the company is promoting brands of its own.

Ampad1 ThumbA recent rebranding campaign is just what this staple of the US paper products industry needed to freshen its image. This year marks the 120th anniversary of a humble invention a young man named Thomas Holley created in Holyoke, Mass. back in 1888. From the clippings and rejected sheets of paper on the floor of a factory there, Holley stitched together the first legal pad and founded Ampad. Today, the company is still dedicated to innovative products and high-quality, responsive service for its customers.

Nbi1 ThumbThis nutritional beverage maker is meeting the growing consumer demand for healthy drinks by constantly creating new products. Chris New, founder, chairman, and CEO of NBI Juiceworks (New Beverage Insights Juiceworks, LLP), producers and distributors of Drenchers Fit ’N’ Lean Super Juice Beverages and Sun Shower brand beverages, does indeed have his eye set on what’s new and innovative, as his spate of new product introductions proves.

Elf1 ThumbA robust Internet strategy and a commitment to low costs sets this cosmetic company apart from the competition. Forward thinking has helped ELF Cosmetics grow to become a $20 million company in just four years. Led by CEO Joey Shamah, the company is an example of the start-up of the future, which relies on the Internet to move quickly but supports the virtual business with innovative retail strategies.

Phytomer1 ThumbThis high-end marine cosmetic supplier is helping to support the growth the US spa industry has experienced and is a leader in sustainability practices. Natural plant-based skin care products have long been available for those who knew where to find them, and are increasingly popular on the mass market. Historically the benefits of sea-based products have been less known in the US, but the reputation of the ocean as a healing force has grown partly thanks to the experience and education efforts of Phytomer.

Jurlique1 ThumbThe number one skin care brand in Australia is launching a new communication campaign to attract more consumers to the green life. On a 153-acre certified organic farm on the other side of the world, hundreds of herbs, flowers, and plants are growing that you will be able to use to moisturize, protect, and rejuvenate your skin, all thanks to Jurlique.
