Expanded GROH® line to be launched at Intercoiffure America/Canada May 19th & 20th

SHERWOOD, Ore., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Entia Biosciences, Inc. (OTCQB: ERGO) announced today it has hired Sabrina Jetton to spearhead the Company’s product innovation, communications, and branding initiatives as Director of Marketing.  Since joining the team in April, Jetton has been leading the preparations for the upcoming launch of the expanded GROH® hair care and beauty line, which will be introduced May 19-20 during the Spring Symposium of Intercoiffure in Hollywood, Florida.

Jetton was formerly Creative Director at Ziba Design, a global design and innovation company, where she was responsible for the establishment and growth of their Beauty and Grooming business unit.  Her more than decade of professional experience includes strategic product development, consumer insight and trend research, marketing, branding, digital media, packaging, and service design for companies across the Americas, Asia, and Europe.  She has directed a variety of branding and innovation programs for Olay, Dolce & Gabbana, Covergirl, Max Factor, DDF, Gdiapers, and Lucy.com.  Jetton holds a B.A.in Graphic Communications from Point Loma Nazarene University and has been a frequent speaker at internationally attended conferences and workshops.

“I have been fortunate to travel around the world and lead a number of significant branding, innovation, and positioning projects during my career, talking with everyday consumers and identifying the trends that have allowed my clients to successfully bring new products to market,” said Sabrina Jetton.  “People today have information at their fingertips and are becoming more educated and demanding when it comes to what they put on and in their bodies.  This is a major global trend that is driving the health and beauty industries to provide more natural and scientifically validated alternatives to drugs and other chemicals.  When I first learned about Entia’s 100% USDA certified organic ingredients, biotechnology platform, and extensive patent portfolio, I knew immediately that I wanted to be a part of their team and help bring these important new products to market.”

“Commercialization of our nutritional technologies in the medical foods and consumer products markets is our number one priority,” said Devin Andres, Chief Operating Officer of Entia Biosciences.  “Attracting team members of Sabrina’s caliber is essential to the successful launch and distribution of these products and we welcome her insights, energy and extensive experience in this critically important role.”  Jetton has been initially tasked with developing and leading the product innovation and branding strategy for the expanded GROH® hair care and beauty line, which has been designed to work synergistically to supply the powerful nutrients from nature that our bodies genetically need for anti-aging and the health of our hair, skin, and nails.  Entia’s first medical food product ErgoD2® Hemo, for the treatment of anemia and diabetes, is currently in clinical trials and has a targeted launch during 2014.  Other ErgoD2® medical food products for neurodegenerative and auto-immune diseases are in the development pipeline.
