miss america logoATLANTIC CITY, N.J.—Topical BioMedics announces that Topricin Foot Therapy Cream has been selected for inclusion in the exclusive gift bags presented to contestants of the 2016 Miss America Competition, via Black Diamond Celebrity Gifting Division. 

The Miss America 2016 pageant will be held at the historic Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Sunday, September 13, 2015.  Now in its 95th year, the iconic annual event will be broadcast live on ABC-TV and streamed to mobile devices via the WatchABC App. 

The Miss America Organization, Dick Clark Productions and the ABC television network announced Tuesday, September 8, that they have selected award-winning actress, singer and former Miss America (1984) Vanessa Williams to serve as head judge for the 2016 competition.      

Safe, natural Topricin Foot Therapy Cream will be featured in gift bags presented to all 52 pageant contestants, along with other specialty gifts of health, beauty and glamour selected by the Black Diamond PR Firm.  

Festivities leading up to the competition include three nights of preliminaries, the “Miracle Mile Walk,” and the Miss America “Show Us Your Shoes” Parade on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. This pageant tradition features shoes that have designs specific to each contestant’s home state.  On Tuesday, September 8, the Miss America Organization revealed that the custom shoes on parade this year will include butterflies, snowflakes, dice, potatoes and dinosaurs, among other clever creations.   

Topricin Foot Therapy Cream will offer Miss America contenders a number of benefits as they strut during the “Show Us Your Shoes” Parade and then glide across the stage during the pageant competition. Formulated from a combination of natural biomedicines in a base that includes coconut oil and purified water, Topricin Foot Therapy Cream can be applied before and after wearing heels to keep feet healthy and pain-free. The formula is odorless, greaseless and free of parabens, petroleum, counterirritants and other harsh chemicals to revitalize feet, ankles and legs as it soothes and moisturizes. 

“We admire the beauty, grace, talent, intelligence and spirit of the Miss America contestants,” said Lou Paradise, Topical BioMedics’ president and chief of research. “We are delighted to be providing the 52 ladies with our Topricin Foot Therapy Cream to help them walk in comfort as they count down to the crown in their lovely high heels.”
