NZ Publicist Wins LA Contract For Songe Skincare

New Zealand Publicist Sam Cruickshank Wins Contract to Represent Songe Skincare in Los Angeles.

Hollywood, California, Thursday, January 23, 2008—New Zealand publicist has been chosen to represent Songe Skincare in Los Angeles and the USA.

Songe Skincare is the product of top Hollywood graphic designer David Nordlund’s brainchild in aloe vera rich skin care development. The product is manufactured in Australia.

Nordlund’s graphic artwork has featured in marketing campaigns and on US billboards for the hit new TV series, Cashmere Mafia and popular films like Seabiscuit and A Beautiful Mind.

Sam Cruickshank feels honored to be working with Nordlund and to have been chosen to represent the new skin line that is already being used daily by many of Hollywood’s leading A-List stars privately in their own homes.

“It’s great to be based in Hollywood and give a refreshing Kiwi and down under flavour via quality PR with great product being made in both Australia and New Zealand like Songe Skincare,” said Cruickshank.

Along with Nordlund and LA skin distribution specialist, Brandon Reece, The Maori publicist from New Zealand is hard at work organising a launch evening that will see many of LA’s leading entertainment media and VIP celebrities converge for the launch of Songe.

Celebrities expected to attend are Minnie Driver, Nobel Peace Prize nominated actress and American jazz crooner Cynthia Basinet, comedic actress Mo Collins, Danny Schmitz, celebrity photographer Matthew Mitchell and Colleen Foy from the movie There Will Be Blood; and many more.

Songe Skincare is one hundred percent manufactured down under and comes in three unique fragrances including Rock Melon, Cranberry Mint and Lemongrass, Lime & Ginger.

New Zealanders and Australians can purchase Songe direct out of Los Angeles by ordering online at

Sam Cruickshank maintains, “Kiwi’s can do anything no matter where they go in the world.” His appointment to Songe Skincare shows how vital New Zealand and Australian made organic products is at making inroads into the 300 million strong US market.

New Zealand publicists have a vital role to play in the USA with the world’s best products from down under finding a global and lucrative skin care market from Los Angeles, The Health and Fitness Capitol and Entertainment Capitol of The World.

The toast of Tinsel Town will take Songe home this year at leading Hollywood and entertainment events.

However, in true ‘down under’ fashion, Songe is affordable and within reach of the average pocket.
