SBT Seabuckthorn Engages a New Canadian Distributor for the Natural Health Market

BC-based SBT Seabuckthorn announces Doug Kalman has been engaged as a distributor to woo the Naturopathic and Holistic Health Care Industries.

Vancouver, Canada, December 28, 2012 --( SBT Seabuckthorn International Inc. is pleased to announce that Douglas Kalman, formerly the Eastern Sales Manager of SBT Seabuckthorn, is their newest distributor. In his new role as an independent distributor of SBT Seabuckthorn products, Mr Kalman will focus on building relationships and business within the Naturopathic and holistic health care markets.

What Goes Around Comes Around

After several years pursuing other interests, Doug Kalman has returned to Peachland, BC’s SBT Seabuckthorn to leverage his extensive knowledge and experience towards educating and enrolling Canada’s many natural health care providers in the benefits of SBT Seabuckthorn. SII’s moisturisers, cleansers, hair care and supplements are made with the nutritional and healing powerhouse SBT Seabuckthorn, which contains over 200 micronutrients, including anti-oxidants and omega fatty acids. SBT Seabuckthorn has a proven record of treating intractable skin conditions such as acne and rosacea, as well as vascular and gastrointestinal ailments.

Doug returns to the field of nutraceutical sales with a long history in the natural health products industry. Says Chuck Barton, VP of Sales & Marketing, “Douglas is a consummate sales person and gained extensive distributor training when he worked for AC Distributors in Vancouver. Douglas is very personable and knowledgeable with a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to sell and service the active and ever changing health food market.”

NHP Consumers Are Clamouring for Products That Work

Asked about the seemingly-impenetrable fortress of Naturopathy, Doug laughs. “SBT is a preventative, natural approach to overall wellness,” he observes. “A gimme for natural health practitioners. SBT is growing in a very discerning customer base of consumers who are converted through personal experience and turning heads with their testimonials.” Reflecting on the most appealing aspects of SBT Seabuckthorn for natural health practitioners, Doug continues, “SBT Seabuckthorn has been in business for twenty years and their core message hasn’t changed. Their products fight aging and improve quality of life from the inside out.”

“Relationship-building is key,” Chuck agrees, “Not only between vendors and producers, but also with individual customers. Because Naturopaths and other holistic health care providers hang their hats on thoughtful, personalized client care, they are an ideal vehicle for nurturing the market for SBT Seabuckthorn products.”

An Eye to the Future

Natural health practitioners are well-known for their caution in embracing new products, but SBT CEO Susan McLoughlin is confident that Doug’s efforts will bear fruit. “Of course it’s critical that SBT’s nutritional products are proven effective in treating the kinds of challenging health issues that Naturopaths often face,” she says, “But the key ingredient is Doug. His combination of knowledge, energy and a genuine love of people will carry the day, we believe. He truly wants to see every person happy, healthy and enjoying life, and he sees SBT as part of that equation.
