SYDNEY and LOS ANGELES – Australia’s Solar D Sunscreen, the manufacturer of the world’s first vitamin D promoting sunscreen and KW International, a US based supply chain and distribution company that specialises in introducing innovative products into the marketplace, have announced a new exclusive strategic partnership in North America and Asia.
The two-year deal is worth over AU$30 Million in sales and will focus on the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, South Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan.
The partnership will combine Solar D’s patented vitamin D promoting sunscreen and KW International’s distribution, sales, marketing, financing and fulfillment to expand Solar D Sunscreen into the broader international market.
Solar D’s vitamin D promoting broad spectrum SPF 15, SPF 30 and SPF 50 sunscreens will be distributed through KW International’s 42 locations throughout the United States, Mexico, China and South Korea. KW International will work directly with retailers and skin care manufacturers in North America and Asia to deliver driven results for Solar D Sunscreen. The first joint opportunity is to align the health benefits of vitamin D and Solar D sunscreen with world-class athletes in the United States. Solar D Sunscreen and KW International will also leverage key relationships with the world’s largest skin care manufacturers in South Korea to introduce the technology for licensing opportunities.
“We are extremely excited about our partnership with Solar D. Their vitamin D promoting sunscreen is such a unique formula and will become the next phenomena in SPF technology. We immediately recognised that the vitamin-D promoting technology could not only change the sunscreen industry, but the entire skincare world,” said William Jin, CEO of KW International.
“This opportunity is a game changer for our business, as we now have the ability to leverage off the reach and experience of KW International’s business to accelerate Solar D’s availability across North America and Asia,” said Mathew Collett, CEO and Director of Solar D.
Solar D Sunscreen and KW International have already begun manufacturing and distribution of Solar D throughout North America and Asia. Initial sales through amazon.com and walmart.com have gained momentum and retailers from South Korea have already signed a multi-million dollar commitment.
