"We are thrilled and honored to be partnering with StarCare Medical Inc. based out of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, who are now selling our line throughout their network of doctors offices and clinics."
NEW YORK, NY, April 17, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Jill Scalisi, the Founder and CEO of Scalisi Naturally Scientific Skincare Products, is proud to announce the Scalisi collection is now available in select Doctors offices and Medical Clinics across Saudi Arabia. This adds to their existing distribution in Spas and Medispas in the US, Wynn and Encore Resorts in both Las Vegas and Macau China and online on QVC.com, Amazon.com and ScalisiSkincare.com.
"We are thrilled and honored to be partnering with StarCare Medical Inc. based out of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, who are now selling our line throughout their network of doctors offices and clinics across the country. Scalisi was chosen for it's advanced skincare technology and high efficacy and will be sold as a daily treatment and recommended post procedures to assist in the healing process," says Scalisi. "This Saudi partnership is a growth area for us and we look forward to building it out further."
Saudi Arabia adheres to some of the strictest interpretations of Sunni Islam in the world and restricts women from taking part in many parts of society. Women are covered in the abaya (ankle length garment) and tarha (head and face scarf) when in public or any "mixed" event where women and non-related men are attending. Despite the fact that fashion and beauty can only be seen by a woman's husband and female friends, Saudi women are among the worlds biggest consumers of beauty products.
"We were approached 22 months ago by Dr. Abel Al-Refae, a John's Hopkins trained plastic surgeon about the possibility of a partnership in Saudi Arabia. I knew it would be daunting but I had no idea just how difficult it would be." The process to get approved to sell cosmetics in Saudi Arabia is more regulated than the US. It takes approximately one year to get products registered by the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA). Similar to other foreign countries, the outer packaging needs to include instructions in the local language (Arabic). Then the exporting company needs to go through the process of becoming registered and a certificate of conformity needs to be obtained for every shipment. This requires sending lab samples to Saudi Arabia to test for any potential harmful ingredients and then a physical inspection needs to be completed at the warehouse prior to shipping. "Many people told me it was a waste of time and couldn't be done. I'm so glad Dr. Al-Refae was as determined as I was to complete this deal and I am incredibly thankful to the team at SGS who handled the final parts of the approval process."

About Jill Scalisi
Scalisi is the brainchild of Jill Scalisi, the Founder and CEO of Scalisi Naturally Scientific Skincare. After personally being diagnosed with skin cancer and not being satisfied with any of the products available on the market, she decided to create her own line, one that would combine everything she was looking for but couldn't find! It would take her love of science (she has a background in micro-biology and chemistry) along with her need for safe, non-toxic, cutting edge, luxurious and efficacious ingredients, 5 long years of research and development, more than 2 years of formulation and a lot of determination for Scalisi Naturally Scientific Skincare to be developed!
Jill lives in Greenwich, Ct with her two children Alexandra and Tommy.
