30 October 2018
AUSTIN, TX, Oct. 23, 2018 – Softvision, a pioneer in digital engineering, today announced it has partnered with Hain Celestial, a leading company in organic and natural products, to unveil Fountain of Truth™, a new skincare line that leverages advanced skincare technology with cutting-edge, transformative ingredients and botanicals from across the globe. The new line and e-commerce site, which was developed in close collaboration with Giuliana Rancic, represents Hain’s first ‘direct to consumer’ platform.
Softvision worked closely with Hain Celestial and Giuliana Rancic on the business and brand strategy, helping to deliver customized front-end designs that brought the eco-luxe beauty experience to market.
“Hain Celestial is very excited to have Softvision as our partner in digital engagement and e-commerce,” said Gary Tickle, Chief Executive Officer of Hain Celestial North America. “They have shown the same passion for the consumer that Hain has – helping us navigate our first ever e-commerce first solution to launch the Fountain of Truth™ brand. Softvision brings both strong technical leadership, along with the creativity needed to make the end product an enriching consumer experience.”
Softvision embarked on an agile and technology-agnostic approach, integrating seamlessly with multiple third-party e-commerce service providers. The company developed a close partnership with the Hain, focusing intently on data and learning about the motivations and aspirations of target consumers.
“We are very proud of our development work and partnership with Hain Celestial and Giuliana Rancic,” said Andres Angelani, Chief Executive Officer of Softvision. “Fountain of Truth™ represents the collective vision of several people and organizations, all of whom are committed to create a transformative experience that conveys the core values and attributes of the brand and the products. The end result is an innovative approach to beauty that speaks to consumers in an honest, authentic way.”
Fountain of Truth™ was developed over eight months, first in Softvision’s design Pod and innovation lab in Vancouver, and then was transitioned to a development Pod in Argentina. The Softvision team also tapped multiple technology Guilds to help create Fountain of Truth™, including its Agile, Web, Design and QA Guilds.
Roseann Fernandez, Director of Marketing of Hain Celestial Personal Care, said, “Softvision has been a true business partner to Hain Celestial during the build-out of our first true e-commerce business, Fountain of Truth™. Their account team was the best in problem-solving, providing best-in-class approaches and very collaborative in the design process. I truly look forward to more projects with the Softvision team.”
