Zia Adds Machismo

The launch of Zia Skin Solutions for Men began in October and the great looking look of the line, the company’s first collection aimed towards men, seems too well done to be the work of a Hain subsidiary. Our apologies if this sounds nasty, but Hain’s track record, as well as those at Jason (the bodycare company Hain bought prior to purchasing Zia) suggests that kudos belong to Fran Strachan and his crew. Fran, one of the founders of Zia over 20 years ago remains with Hain as a V.P of business development for Personal Care under longtime Hain (and former Westbrae mucky muck) Andy Jacobsen.

NBN gives the shave cream a big thumbs up replacing Alba Botanica in our medicine chest but we’re keeping our body moisturized with Weleda.
