Mo Bro’s was founded in 2014 by three brothers after they decided to grow their beards for Movember, the annual event to raise money for Men’s Health charities, particularly related to prostate cancer. During this time, the three brothers struggled to find products to stop their emerging beards from becoming itchy and messy; to solve the problem they developed their own range of innovative, high quality grooming products.

To cater specifically for the travelling man, Scorpio Worldwide and Mo Bro’s have created three travel retail exclusive collections that will be showcased at TFWA World Exhibition (Mediterranean Village, P08). Available in Classic Cedarwood or Unscented these include:

Mo Bro’s Grooming Travel Kit – A perfect gift for a bearded friend. The gift set contains all of the essentials you or your bearded companion will need to maintain a beard. The essentials include items such as Beard and Moustache combs for necessary grooming, as well as beard oil to stop any irritation. This gift set also comes with a Gift Tin which means you can easily wrap up the present for that special bearded someone. 1x Premium Aluminium Gift Tin, 1x 25ml Beard Balm, 1 x15ml Moustache Wax, 1x 10ml Beard Oil, 1x Beard Comb, 1x Moustache Comb.

Mo Bro’s Ultimate Beard Care Kit – The most complete beard grooming package available. It comes with every tool needed to effectively groom a beard into the awesome mane it’s destined to be. 1x Premium XL Aluminium Gift Tin, 1x Hessian Carry Bag, 1x 25ml Beard Balm, 1x25ml Moustache Wax, 1x20ml Beard Oil, 1x80g Beard Soap, 1x Beard Comb, 1x Moustache Comb.

Mo Bro’s Beard Balm Gift Collection – This gift collection allows the user to try each of the six scented beard balms available in the Mo Bro’s collection. Each beard balm keeps the beard soft and conditioned with ingredients including almond oil and shea butter. A perfect gift pack that includes 6x 25ml Beard Balms – Cedarwood, Unscented, Sandalwood, Vanilla and Mango, Sweet Mint and Summer Spice.

Stuart McGuire, Chairman, Scorpio Worldwide, comments, “The Mo Bro’s brand is a great example of entrepreneurialism, which I have great admiration for as it's the same spirit upon which Scorpio Worldwide was built. The Mo Bro’s brand is ideal for inflight due to its gifting potential, and as the channel in general is impulse-driven the brand is sure to emulate its current domestic success.”

Scorpio Worldwide will be showcasing a number of new product ideas for in-flight sales at TFWA Asia Pacific Conference & Exhibition this year (Stand N20).

The phenomenally successful Lip Smacker range of flavoured lip-balms has been extended for inflight with a new exclusive Coca-Cola tin offering a combination of lip balms and lip gloss. This brand new item will launch in Q4 this year. Additional new packs will also be available to travel retail ground shops including a new Coca-Cola Lip Happiness Tin, a Coca-Cola Collectable Tin containing a tasty trio of Classic, Cherry, and Vanilla Coca-Cola flavoured lip balms and the Coca-Cola Trio Cane, that comes with three lip balms and a Coca-Cola can keyring.

The Max Benjamin range of natural-blend plant-based oil well-being candles comes from Co Wicklow in Ireland. The perfect travel gift, it comes in two varieties: Calm and Uplifting or Moroccan Mint Tea & White Pomegranate. Both contain two travel sized candles and will retail at approximately £25.00. Brand new in Singapore will be a luxury Well-being Diffuser in Calm and Uplifting varieties, each with a screw-cap bottle of fragrance and eight black diffusing sticks. Offered in premium packaging, the retail price will be approximately £30 ($45). Strong interest has already been shown from the Middle East and Asia.

Jacques du Manoir is proving to be one of Scorpio’s most successful watch brands, with sales of the new ladies double wrap strap watch far beyond expectations. Totally on-trend, the double wrap leather strap watches are available in several colours including white, pink, dark or light tan, chocolate, red, black, light and dark blue. These Swiss made watches come with a stainless steel case (some with rose gold plating), mineral glass, white dial with Roman numerals, and a two-year international warranty. With genuine Swiss quartz movement, the range is priced at just £99.99 ($149) and is expected to be a top seller for 2013.

A new collection of Chrono models is being added to the Sturmanskie watch range. Developed specifically for Scorpio, the Sturmanskie collection includes a replica of the first watch worn in space by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in 1961. Back in the 1960s Sturmanskie watches were the standard issue for Soviet pilots and were not available to the public – they were chosen because of their military precision, workmanship and reliability. Scorpio has now brought this amazing brand to travel retail with an exclusive collection of men’s retro watches, sympathetically designed to replicate the originals and- in particular – the Gagarin model. Suggested retail price of the new Chrono range is US$250.

These new lines join a wide portfolio of watches, jewellery, children’s products, travel essentials – including new Flatmates folding shoes, and perfume/cosmetics available to airline buyers globally.

Visitors to the stand will also be able to see the latest collections from leading brands Aviator, Montine, Pierre Cardin, S-Kross, Travel Easy Elite, Elonex, Time Design, Timberland, Hot Diamonds and more.

The cosmetics offer includes the massively successful Bourjois makeup collection, redesigned for 2013, and a wide selection of fragrance and skincare brands.

Scorpio will also be showing its full portfolio of Travel Retail brands, supported by a comprehensive range of POS and merchandising systems.
