TRS appointed to represent new brands in Travel Retail


No hibernation during the winter months for the TRS team! We have been busy searching out the best brands to present to our customers ready for Spring/Summer 2017.


We are very proud to introduce two fantastic new cosmetic brands, The Konjac Sponge Company and Dr.PAWPAW!


The Konjac Sponge Company offers an award winning range of amazing facial and body sponges, which are the ultimate in natural, effective skincare.
Made in Korea from pure vegetable fibres, the Konjac sponges deeply cleanse exfoliate and detoxify, leaving skin clean, glowing and silky smooth.


All Konjac Sponges are 100% natural and made with the purest Konjac plant and mineral rich extracts. They are eco-friendly and carry the Leaping Bunny and Vegan Society symbols as signs of the brand’s commitment to producing natural, cruelty free skincare. Products from The Konjac Sponge Company are now sold in over 60 countries and have received 23 awards from the beauty industry.


When you first get your hands on a Konjac sponge it is hard as a rock, but submerge in water for a few minutes and it will transform into an extremely soft sponge with amazing exfoliation capabilities. The trick is to polish the skin in a circular motion for an intense massaging effect. In no time at all skin will appear revitalised and rejuvenated with a healthy glow. After use, gently squeeze out excess water and leave to dry so it can be used over and over again!


TRS are launching with two Travel Retail Exclusive Duo Packs plus a Mini Facial Sponge, all of which are perfect for travel.


In addition to the Konjac “wonder sponges”, TRS recently discovered Dr.PAWPAW’s Multipurpose Soothing Balm and have never looked back! The phenomenal product contains natural fermented pawpaw and provides relief for dry irritated skin, moisturises lips, nails and cuticles, and dry cracked skin on hands, heels and elbows. Its calming properties help with prickly heat and can create a base for makeup. The balm can also be used for adding finishing touches to hair and smoothing brows and also helps with insect bites and minor abrasions. A complete all-rounder!


Co-Founder Johnny Paterson comments “Whilst Dr.PAWPAW is only three years old, we have been delighted with the reception the brand has received and the love people already have for our hero balms. We have been inundated with requests and a real demand for more and more products, which has been incredible. Now we are sold in 14 countries and are very excited about our international expansion over the next few years.”


The award winning Dr.PAWPAW range is having huge success in the UK, Russia, Spain and Germany and bloggers, celebrities and MUA’s have already named it as a cult skincare brand and the best multi-tasking beauty buy. The secret is OUT!!


TRS are launching with the best selling Original Balm along with two tinted versions and an exclusive duo pack.


Konjac Sponges and Dr.PAWPAW balms will be available to purchase on board Monarch Airlines this summer with further listings due to be announced shortly! Stay tuned for more TRS news and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @trs_talks.
