Shelly Maguire Named to Zija Product Advisory Council
Lehi, Utah-based Zija International recently announced that it has welcomed skin care and beauty expert Shelly Maguire to its Product Advisory Council.
Maguire brings with her decades of experience in the industry. She has developed and brought to market over 50 anti-aging skin care products since 2001. Her career as a regular presenter on Home Shopping Network Live TV, Live TV Worldwide and infomercials, as well as her accomplishments as a radio show host and published author, have led to her recognition as a skin care industry leader.
“We are thrilled to have Shelly Maguire as a part of the Zija Product Advisory Council,” said Dr. Joshua Plant, COO and Chairman of the Council. “Her unique and accomplished background will provide Zija Members with unprecedented skin care and beauty knowledge, and will help us expand the GenM Personal Care line even further.”
Diagnosed at the age of 12 with Cystic Fibrosis and given a life expectancy of 18 years, Maguire became interested in health and wellness to help combat her disease as well as her own skin challenges. Her passion to help others and interact with them personally led her to the direct sales channel. She has used her own life experiences to inspire, motivate and help people worldwide. In addition, her other entrepreneurial endeavors include founding and running a chain of high-end beauty spas with over 125 employees and creating an accredited continuing education program for massage therapists and estheticians.
Zija has curated an experienced and expert group of professionals to maintain the highest quality of research and development, sourcing, validation and delivery practices for its products. In addition to Plant and Maguire, the Product Advisory Council includes master herbalist Karen Jensen; researcher and clinical pharmacologist Dr. Monica Marcu; and naturopathy and alternative medicine expert Dr. Scott Johnson.
In May, Zija acquired XANGO, the health and wellness company also based in Utah that was the first to market a premium mangosteen beverage to consumers worldwide.
