Phytomer Welcomes Josée Côté


And in spa beauty news—Phytomer USA is pleased to introduce Josée Côté as Account Manager for the North East region. Côté has 20+ years of experience within the beauty industry, ranging from marketing, retail support, spa operations, and consulting. Prior to Phytomer, Côté worked with an array of high-end cosmetic brands, retail brands, and outlets in Canada and New York. As a Phytomer Account Manager, Côté’s role is to provide excellent customer service, support, training, and knowledge to spa partners of the four skincare brands that make up The Phytomer Group. “As we say in French, ‘retour aux sources,’ I feel a sense of homecoming, back to the spa waters with Phytomer,” says Côté.

Based in Saint-Malo, France, and distributed in 70 countries worldwide, Phytomer, (translating to “plant of the sea”) utilizes seawater, seaweed, or seaside plants in its retail and professional products, combining science with the natural powers of the sea. One of the only spa brands with its own laboratory, Phytomer researches and cultivates its own ingredients, develops unique cosmetic formulas, and manufactures skincare products and cutting-edge professional treatments.

Côté oversees spa accounts in New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. She is looking forward to expanding business and cultivating relationships with each and every spa partner in her territory. A major goal she has is to provide the incredible hotel facilities in the North East with a full service menu offering, showcasing Phytomer as a core brand.

 “As we say in French, ‘retour aux sources,’ I feel a sense of homecoming, back to the spa waters with Phytomer,” says Côté.

Côté looks forward to developing new marketing strategies and helping spa accounts think outside of the box to boost revenue while maintaining happy, loyal clients. She would be very glad to connect with both existing Phytomer, Vie Collection, Phytocéane and Fleur’s accounts and new contacts. She can be reached by email at jcote@phytomerusa.com.
