FOOT PATH: Sally Hansen is taking strides toward building a niche pedicure business with the spring introduction of four foot care items. The collection includes a vitamin A and tea tree oil foot scrub, a tea tree oil spray, a retinol and tea tree oil creme and a leg and foot lotion.
To support the effort, Sally Hansen is sponsoring a consumer contest in conjunction with Glamour magazine in May. Called the “Best of You,” it asks women to submit photos showing off their best features — toes, hands, legs and lips. Four winners will be selected and featured in Sally Hansen advertisements and on in-store displays this fall.
