NEW YORK Scott-Vincent Borba, whose Borba brand is sold in such fine retail outlets as CVS' upscale Beauty360 stores, has received the "Entrepreneur of the Year" award by Beauty Industry West, a trade organization comprised of industry insiders.
"What I particularly love about the beauty business is that it sits right in the middle of science and fashion, drawing inspiration and content from both. You get the rigor and structure of one, combined with the glamour and promise of the other. For me, that's the most intriguing and exciting thing in the world," stated Borba upon hearing of receiving the award.
From technologically advanced nutraceuticals to antioxidant-rich cosmeceuticals, Borba fuses the inner and outer needs of skin for a holistic approach to beauty. Soon after his first appearance on QVC in 2006, the Borba line became one of QVC's top performers in the health and beauty category, and Borba, himself, was named one of the Top Five QVC Rising Stars.
His Borba products are available at fine retail outlets including QVC, Beauty360, Dillards, Fred Segal and other prestige beauty retailers.
