Herborium Group, Inc. (OTC:HBRM) CEO Discusses Future Opportunities in Tech-Driven Natural Wellness and Beauty Sectors

HBRM

Herborium Group, Inc. (HBRN) is a botanical therapeutics® company that addresses dermatological and other health and wellness concerns via its proprietary medicinal products that are supported by science-centered content. In an exclusive interview with the Capital Gains Report, HBRN CEO Dr. Agnes Olszewski discussed the company’s track to take advantage of promising opportunities arising in the natural segment of the wellness industry, particularly as it applies to skincare, and an important boost to this area of the market can get from the application of artificial intelligence. HBRN’s Approach of Integrating Medicine and Beauty The global natural cosmetics market is growing at a fast pace and is projected to reach $79.6 billion by 2033, with an annual growth rate of 5.1%. This rise is driven by the emergence of a new category of advanced, natural ingredient-based products available via conventional retail channels and online retailers, as well as the growing prominence of safer and more efficacious science-based beauty and wellness culture, which fuels the accelerated demand for natural beauty products. Dr. Olszewski said, “One of the most important trends in the healthcare and beauty sectors is the merger of clinical skincare with natural skincare to create safe and validated “hybrid” products that actually work while maintaining their natural ingredient profile.” Herborium’s acne treatment represents such a unique product. AcnEase is a systemic, all botanical ingredient-based, proprietary, clinically tested acne treatment for teen and adult acne, that also improves symptoms of an inflammatory skin condition called rosacea. Dr. Olszewski said, “We are presently working on the second generation of this clinically validated skincare solution that has better consumer characteristics -- broader application and simpler treatment routine -- and improved business profile, such as increased margins. The company is also approaching the most advanced science in clinical skincare - stem cell-based products. We are working to add two highly innovative products in this category to our 2023 and 2024 product portfolios.” The company pursues a cross-sectoral approach, aiming to use clinical testing in order to integrate pharmaceutical and nutraceutical market segments. Exploring the Power of Artificial Intelligence in Natural Skincare Sector Another strength of HBRM has to do with the use of pioneering technology as applied to the development of natural skincare products and a total solution that would address consumer concerns in the skincare sector. On May 11, 2023, the company announced signing a Letter of Intent with Adrecom, a US-based technology and e-commerce company with offices in North Carolina and California, to purchase and further advance AI technology that will power HBRM's natural skin health and wellness platform. It completed the first stage of designing this platform and is currently in the midst of testing and further advancing it. Dr. Olszewski says, “Herborium’s unique approach is the active use of technology in the natural segment of skincare and skin wellness.” The AI platform will deliver streamlined and more precise diagnosis, curated, personalized skincare counseling, products, and other related services such as nutrition and esthetician-provided recommendations. This step positions HBRM as a frontrunner in the novel skincare industry, opening up new ways for innovation and potential revenue streams. “Our AI-based platform offers an integrated, personalized approach to skincare and skin health,” says Dr. Olszewski. “At the moment, an integrated platform for natural skincare and skin wellness does not exist.” As medicine and wellness develop in parallel with advancements in using AI technology to support a personalized approach to treatments and more common wellness and beauty solutions, HBRM is a first mover in this space as it is capable of combining its natural ingredient-based products and relevant, cutting edge content with advanced AI technology. Growth through Partnerships HBRM is currently commercializing its products and has already established a strong presence in the United States, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe through a network of specialty retailers, distributors, and e-commerce platforms. With a well-established customer base and strong brand recognition, the company plans to establish new sales targets by building curated partnerships with other product originators. “We are presently in advanced talks with two companies—one from the US and a second from South Korea that are well known in the cosmetic and skin wellness industry for high-quality biotechnological applications in skincare,” says Dr. Olszewski. Conclusion Natural ingredients and the potential for an AI-driven personalized approach to skincare mean that Herborium’s products have the potential to gain popularity with consumers quickly. They are capable of connecting medical and beauty applications with a focus on natural ingredients, filling an important gap in the market.

Calling All Adventure Seekers: Looking for a heart-pumping adventure in the great outdoors?

YourUpdateTV

From mountain biking to rock climbing to white-water rafting, it might surprise you to learn that Arkansas offers something for every level of adventure seeker. Recently, Travis Napper from Arkansas Tourism and Suzanne Grobmyer from Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism conducted a satellite media tour to talk about the hidden gems of Arkansas. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Dsd_giujvvk Outside Magazine recently named Arkansas’ Monument Trails as the best mountain biking destination in the country. Arkansas is a state of visionaries when it comes to outdoor recreation. The State has been blessed with beautiful mountain ranges – from the Ozark Mountains in the north to Pinnacle Mountain in central Arkansas. The Monument Trails are a series of shared-use trails located in various Arkansas state parks. Through a partnership with the Walton Family Foundation, professional trail builders designed and developed the trails with designs that are innovative and sustainable, and that help highlight Arkansas’ beauty. There are trails for beginners and trails for those who are experienced. Arkansas has a collection of world-class, mountain biking routes within four Arkansas State Parks — Mount Nebo State Park, Hobbs State Park, Pinnacle Mountain State Park, and Devil’s Den State Park. The shared-use trails, which were professionally crafted by the world’s best trail builders, showcase Arkansas’s natural beauty and are woven into the beautiful landscape. If you would rather find your adventure on the water, there is plenty of adrenaline-pumping white water rafting in Arkansas. Try Cossatot River State Park and the Class IV rapids of Cossatot Falls. If a leisurely float down the river is more your speed, then you can do that at Cossatot, too. There are few activities more serene and calming than a hike along the 300 miles of trails in Arkansas State Parks. There is no better way to see The Natural State. Petit Jean Mountain State Park offers trails that are rather easy and others that are strenuous. Most everyone can navigate the Cedar Falls Trail, and it is definitely worth the effort because the trail’s end is the stunning 95-foot Cedar Falls Waterfall, which begins behind the breezeway at the park’s historic Mather Lodge. Arkansas is also home to two world-class fine arts museums – Crystal Bridges and Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts. Another reason Arkansas is called The Natural State is the abundance of outstanding lakes and rivers. Arkansas, for instance, is known as one of the premier locations for trout fishing. Record trout are caught at the Little Red River and the White River. The State also has some of the world’s best bass fishing locations. The Buffalo National River is an ideal place for a quiet float. Ready to ride? Arkansas.com is a one-stop resource for all things Arkansas.

Our partnership with the APP is a game-changer for our platform. We're excited to create a unique, food-centric experience for pickleball players and fans, while showcasing the best local and national culinary talent at APP events."

Mosquitos and other pests fly towards the light believing it to be an easy food source. Then, before they reach the light, they encounter the electric coils, which zap and kill them instantly. Boundery launched the Bug Bulb with the goal of keeping families safe all summer long: “Mosquitos aren’t just annoying; they also carry harmful diseases and illnesses,” explains a Boundery spokesperson. “With the Bug Bulb, we created an effective solution to keep backyards safer and bug-free all summer long.” The Bug Bulb works indoors and outdoors, protecting all types of spaces without relying on toxins, chemicals, pesticides, or sprays. Some hang the Bug Bulb from patios, while others place multiple Bug Bulbs throughout the house and backyard for maximum protection. Because the Bug Bulb is wireless, it’s usable anywhere: “We incorporated modern, rechargeable battery technology into the Bug Bulb to enhance its usability. Many of our customers take the Bug Bulb camping or use it off-the-grid, for example, because of its rechargeable battery. Plus, there’s no need to fuss with AA or AAA batteries or long extension cords.” The Bug Bulb lasts 15 to 20 hours on a single charge, making it one of the longest-lasting bug zappers on the market. Although primarily designed for mosquitos, it also attracts and zaps flies, no-see-ums, gnats, and other flying insects. For a limited time, the Bug Bulb is priced at $39.99 per lantern, with greater discounts available when ordering multiple lanterns. Boundery typically sells the Bug Bulb at an ordinary retail price of $61.52. “We’ve worked with our manufacturer to reduce costs on our end, and we’re happy to pass big savings to our customers. We want to see Bug Bulbs protecting as many homes as possible by the end of summer.” With a combination of LED light, bug zapping electrical coils, and a long-lasting battery, the Bug Bulb aims to be the ultimate outdoor accessory to keep any home pest-free all summer.

Shubug Insect Repellent Launches to Create a Sad Bugs and Happy You Environment This Summer

Shubug Insect Repellent

Shubug Insect Repellent is proud to announce the launch of a new active-lifestyle brand, providing outdoor enthusiasts and fun-havers of all kinds with an effective and worry-free insect repellent. Born from the need for all-day, everyday insect protection, Shubug was founded by a group of avid outdoor lovers who are passionate about being outside without the bother of bugs and the worry of dangerous chemicals. Most notable of their three new products is an innovative Natural offering that is proven to work the entire day with just one spray. Unlike most other natural products that must be reapplied an average of every 90 minutes, Shubug Natural, as well as Shubug Kids have a state-verified certification for an unparalleled 10 hours of protection from mosquitoes and other pests. Additionally, it’s walnut and MCT oil base will help you feel good about what you’re putting on your skin. For those who just can’t wrap their head around the idea of an effective Natural insect repellent, Shubug also offers Shubug Active with a more traditional formulation, which is certified for 12 hours of protection when used as directed. Shubug Active is perfect for those who love to play, explore, fish, hunt, camp and even just relax outdoors. “One of the main objectives behind the creation of the brand Shubug was to offer a full spectrum of quality insect repelling solutions, with a line of naturals that competes with and even outperforms many synthetics,” said Mike Lyon, Shubug CEO. “We’re all about enablement; safe and comfortable access to the great outdoors, with whatever type of repellent makes you feel the most protected from insects and insect-borne diseases.” To represent the brand in media, the Shubug logomark comes to life as “Bugzy,” the “Incognito Mosquito.” Always wanting to “just hangout,” Bugzy has humanistic qualities and some serious FOMO (fear of missing out). He doesn’t seem to know he’s a mosquito and will be depicted in a series of commercials dropping this summer, trying to crash various outdoor settings, all ending in the Shubug slogan – Sad Bugs, Happy You. Shubug’s spirit of love for nature, inclusivity and enablement is present throughout the series. All Shubug products are made in the USA with the highest quality ingredients. Shubug also proudly offers a commission-based program for social media influencer partnerships to help get the word out about the brand, its commitment to nature and its quality natural solutions. Shubug products are available now for purchase in Walmart stores nationwide or online at www.walmart.com. For more information about Shubug Insect Repellent please visit www.Shubug.com. Shubug Insect Repellent is a brand committed to an active lifestyle and providing high quality, worry free insect repelling solutions. Shubug provides insect repellent products for the individual that is conscious about what they put on their or their children's skin. The current Shubug lineup consists of Shubug Active, Shubug Natural and Shubug Kids, with more products launching in the coming months.
