Megan Gale's talent scouts sign PharmAust for 12 months


Nedlands-based pharmaceuticals company PharmAust Ltd has signed a 12 month contract with WA's Ganehill Pty Ltd to produce two new products in the Megan Gale Invisible Zinc Sun Care range.

Fully owned PharmAust subsidiary PharmAust Manufacturing will produce Megan Gale INVISIBLE ZINC Active and Megan Gale INVISIBLE ZINC Junior.

Manufacturing of the new sunscreens is underway at PAM's recently refurbished state-of the- art Welshpool facility as part of an exclusive agreement with WA-based Ganehill Pty Ltd. PharmAust has developed and owns the rights to the two new formulations, which remain exclusively licensed to Ganehill while under contract.

In Australia, the Megan Gale products will be sold through David Jones and major pharmacy chains, while in the United Kingdom, both formulations will be sold under Ganehill's ZO1 Invisible Zinc label, which was successfully launched in 2005 and is currently sold through major retailers Selfridges and Harrods.

PharmAust revenue will be based on market uptake of the new products which according to Ganehill Managing Director Adil Bux, aims to take at least 10 per cent of the $80 million Australian sun care market.

"Sunscreens are becoming serious beauty products. Our ZO1 Invisible Zinc range was launched with outstanding results in the UK in 2005 and summer 2007 will see the range rolled out across Europe and the USA via the Sephora chain," Mr Bux said.

PharmAust Executive Director Mr Bryant McLarty said: "It is a testament to our new facility that clients like Ganehill have chosen PharmAust Manufacturing to produce high profile Megan Gale INVISIBLE ZINC products.

"PharmAust will continue to position itself as a developer and manufacturer of world-leading products in the personal care and skin care category for high volume mass markets in Australia and overseas," he said.
