Question ID: 774479
we have developed a very soft gel that we have produced and sold on
medical devices since 1998 and we have a lot of history behind it. now
we have developed a mask for cosmetic using this gel which increases
the blood flow to the epidermis and contains antioxidants and some
other ingredients, with obsrvable  beneficial effects for the
appearance of the skin overall. in fact this is what we have  observed
over the last 8 years or so especially on diabetic patients who tend
to develop ulcers( this was a side benefit of the gel, which is used
mostly for the cushioning chahraxterisics).
 we know how to market medical devices but we would like to find
someone with credibility who is willing to evaluate these masks and if
he likes them spread the word.
these masks are unlikely to be endorsed by dermatologists nor beauty
salons because they are so effective and easy to use and inexpensive
that dermatologists and beauty salon would lose the customer they sell
the mask to.
in the medical device industry we are bable to find champions who care
about patients and are not "hired guns", then in turn when these
champions do lectures or workshops they include the features of thos
prodcuts that they think are of superior performance and if a certain
manufacturer product is considered to be superior in performance or
functionality, then that product is mentioned in more or less detail
depending on the degree of superiority with respect to others.
the fact that we are not kown in the cosmetic or health and beauty
industry works against us.
we want to find some champions
can you suggest where and how to look?

Have you considered hiring a firm that might place samples of your
product in the hands of celebrities?

Hi! Thanks for the question.

I think people who will care about your industry and at the same time,
have an unbiased look, are those who dedicate their careers for
research on biomedical engineering. I think the best way to lead you
to these people will be to contact leaders of organizations that cater
to this field.

Personalities who are behind the scientific journals within this
industry will be good as well.

i am not sure i understand what you propose. 
opinion leader in our industry already know about the benefits of this
gel. we need to get women opinion leaders who will try the masks and
then espress their opinion about them

Google Answers Researchers can work only on the premise of your
original question. There was no indication on your original question
that you need women opinion makers. You said you were looking for
those in the academe that will champion your cause.

Anyway, maybe there was a misunderstanding on that and based on your
answer to my colleague pinkfreud, here are some companies that could
help you.

Celebrity Endorsement Network

Westport Entertainment

Celebrity Access

Celebrity Service

Celebrity Plus Inc.

Brooks International

All American Speakers

I hope these would be of help to you.

i need something i can use. this answer probably cna be argued to be
in line with what i requested but the fact is that i asked to find
opinion leaders in the cosmetic, toiletries type of field . in the
medical device industry we already have a bunch of opinion leaders on
our side
