Zestra Laboratories Elects New Board of Directors

Zestra Laboratories, Inc., global innovator in clinically proven intimacy products for women’s sexual health, announces the election of four new members to its board of directors, bringing the current number of board members to five. Its flagship product, Zestra® is available at more than 41,000 drugstore and retail outlets in the United States. It is the only women's topical intimacy product that is clinically proven to increase female sexual arousal, pleasure, desire/libido and satisfying sexual experiences for women; everything else available for women are simply lubricants. To date, there are still no FDA-approved prescription drug treatments for any form of female sexual dysfunction (FSD).

“We are gratified with the addition of our new directors, who bring extensive experience and serial successes in both prescription pharmaceuticals and consumer product brands to our Board,” Martin Crosby, Founder and Acting CEO of Zestra, said. “Their proven track records and their industry knowledge, business insights, and capital formation expertise will be invaluable to Zestra, as we accelerate our growth in 2008 and beyond.”
In 2008, Zestra plans to extend its product line in women’s health, introduce a male sexual health product, and increase its market penetration in Europe and Asia.
