“We are excited about the new design of our Ultra-Hydrating Lip Balm and can’t wait to share it with hundreds of thousands of consumers through sampling and sales,” says Penny White, CEO of Yield Growth and Urban Juve. “Through our engagement with top design agencies in New York, we are now planning a photo shoot and campaign that will showcase the Urban Juve products internationally this fall.”
Pursuant to EU regulations, Yield Growth retained Biorius to act as its Responsible Person for Urban Juve. In order to sell cosmetic products in the European Union, the Responsible Person must first issue a compliance certificate for each product. After a rigorous review of each ingredient in the lip balm, including Urban Juve’s proprietary hemp root oil, Biorius issued a certificate of compliance, confirming that Urban Juve Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm is now registered with the EU. Urban Juve now has two products registered with the EU and expects to have nine more products registered by early fall.
As proposed legislation across the European Union continues to bring cannabis closer to the mainstream, high-end cannabis products are gaining in popularity. With a total population over 508 million, the EU represents massive market potential for Urban Juve products.
