Mario Badescu brand
Skincare products under Mario Badescu brand are extremely specific, personal, and almost intimate. Psychologically, women and men refuse speaking about the products they use to stay young and attractive. Mario Badescu meets a serious challenge: it combines the discussed “secrecy” by promoting natural looks, and makes its products popular. Usually, make-up has several substitutes. There are traditional cosmetic products, and those which promote natural looks. Where natural looks is preferable, the sales of cosmetic products may decline. (2, p. 18).
Mario Badescu products initially promote “natural” looks. By choosing Mario Badescu skincare products, consumers make a choice towards particular appearance. The brand is well-protected from the threat of possible substitutes by offering “natural” shining skin, without any sign of artificiality. The three product lines Mario Badescu products are new to Brazilian market. We should carefully choose the products with which Mario Badescu will enter Brazilian market. We will avoid excessive product diversification and will concentrate on the most important products for the major consumer groups.
Mario Badescu presents three different product lines: for teen care, aging, and pregnant skin. The official website of Mario Badescu brand separately describes each product line.
