Beauty and skin care line has announced that Emmy-nominated actress Kerry Washington has joined forces with the brand and will act as creative consultant
Kerry Washington, 36, has teamed up with the dermatologist-recommended skincare and makeup brand Neutrogena. On October 18, Neutrogena announced that the “Scandal” starlet will be much more than a brand ambassador. She’ll share her experiences and creative insights with their marketing, research and development and retail sectors as a consultant.
Michelle Freyre, general manager of Neutrogena, spoke briefly on the collaboration with Washington. “Neutrogena is about making a difference in women’s lives. We partnered with Kerry because she’s an inspiration to women everywhere and shares this same value system. Her work ethic, charity commitments and, of course, her ability to balance it all while also having beautiful, healthy skin, made this an obvious fit. She is truly aspirational to everyone.”
A humbled Washington offers, “The more I learned about the company’s values, guiding principles, and commitment to quality, the more I realized that Neutrogena is so much more than your average beauty company. I knew I wanted to be a part of a company that is helping to make a difference in people’s lives. As a creative consultant, I will be able to have a real voice inside this amazing company, which is a tremendously exciting endeavor.”
Washington will be following in the footsteps of other Neutrogena beauty icons like Jennifer Garner, Julie Bowen, Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, Emma Roberts and Diane Lane. Congrats! – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
