By Sarah Hannan L.M.J. International Lanka Ltd. recently re-launched its personal care product range under the Palmer’s brand in Colombo. The event was attended by E. T. Browne Middle East Ltd. Managing Director Thomas Wiberg, L. M. J. International Lanka Ltd. Directors Lasantha Gunawardana, Priyantha Jayanetti Kulanga Jayanetti and special invitees. The founders of a household family name in skin care and hair care, Palmer’s is a company that has a rich heritage spanning over 150 years in developing and perfecting skin and hair care products. E.T. Browne and Company’s origins span back to a family-owned business that began in the middle of the 19th century, making the company one of the oldest proprietorships. The renowned Palmer’s Cocoa Butter formula, which quickly became the number one cocoa butter brand in the world, was developed under the company’s current ownership, which took over the company in 1971 and it has since then developed a range of formulas for rejuvenating skin and repairing hair. Hailing from the United States, the Palmer’s brand has a global presence spanning over 80 countries, including Sri Lanka. Commitment to quality The skin and hair care industry in Sri Lanka is cluttered with various products, but the Palmer’s brand stood out from the moment it reached Sri Lankan shores in 2009, because of the company’s sincere commitment to quality and century-spanning experience in skin and hair care and its product guarantee of actually delivering the results it promises consumers. Since arriving in Sri Lanka, the Palmer’s brand has successfully inculcated in Sri Lankan families, attentiveness to skin and hair care, and especially helped heal scarring, discolouration and stretch mark problems particularly among women. The company values the trust placed by generations of families in its products and that’s why all Palmer’s products are hand crafted from the finest natural ingredients. The ingenuity and effectiveness in skin and hair treatment and care that the company works towards daily in its research and product development, has resulted in the formulation of the world famous cocoa butter formula which has been used in treating dry skin, stretch marks, scars and discolouration caused by ageing, and hair repair and growth. Other formulas developed by the company include the Botanical Scalp Complex for promoting hair growth and moisturising scalp, and the use of Bio C-Elaste for treatment of stretch marks. Other technologies developed by the company to encourage better skin care maintenance even during the busy lifestyles of consumers is the RapiSorb Technology, for quick, non-greasy and deep miniaturisation, and the roller ball, for targeted application of particular areas or spots of the skin, while on the go, and the swivel stick for touch up moisturising and to moisturise dry and chapped lips. Cocoa Butter product range The Palmer’s Cocoa Butter product range, which combines Vitamin E and cocoa butter, among other ingredients depending on the specific skin treatment and requirement, includes products for daily use, products for pregnancy skin care needs, anti-ageing treatment, after tanning treatment and products developed to meet specific requirements of baby skin and men’s skin. The cocoa butter formula is also found in men’s skin care products such as the Body and Face Wash for men, and the Men Solid Formula, which heals calloused skin, including elbows and knees. Palmer’s also has a cocoa butter range for treating skin damage caused by pregnancy and weight loss. The Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Cream is ideal for healing stretch marks caused by pregnancy and weight fluctuation. The product includes Shea Butter and Vitamin E, in addition to the powerful ingredient Bio C-Elaste. Bio C-Elaste is made from a combination of collagen, elastin, centella asiataca, sweet almond oil and argan oil, which are ingredients that help improve elasticity and suppleness of skin. The Firming Butter on the other hand includes ginseng to relieve stressed skin and co-enzyme Q10 antioxidant to revitalise skin, in addition to restoring firmness after pregnancy and weight loss. Other products using cocoa butter for pregnancy-related skin issues include dry itchy skin soothing oil with lecithin which softens the skin, and nursing butter to relieve sore nipples associated with breast feeding. The Cocoa Butter Baby Care range has products such as Bottom Butter and Bottom Butter Zinc Oxide Formula used to prevent and treat diaper rash. The Palmer’s Cocoa Butter products are also used for hair and for healthy hair growth. Other oils and butters The company also uses a number of other oils and butters for its products such as olive oil, coconut oil and Shea butter. The Palmer’s Olive Butter range has lotions, body butters and soaps that use the unique lipid structure of Olive Oil to moisturise and emulsify skin and restore it to a more youthful and healthier look. The range also has concentrated formulas ideal for treating flaky and severely dry skin near the elbows and knees, and Anti-Ageing Body Butter with anti-ageing peptides. The Shea Butter range of body butters, soaps, and lotions moisturise skin with shea butter to improve elasticity and soothe skin irritation, while leaving skin satiny smooth. The company’s Skin Success product range prevents blemishes, heals scars and acne-prone skin, in addition to moisturising. The Palmer’s story is one that may have begun over a century ago, but is still being written, as the company forges ahead in inculcating skin and hair care awareness and offering effective and affordable skin and hair care treatments for generations. For Palmer’s, the journey continues.
