Indie Brand, Shared Planet & Sea Turtles

Shared Planet™, the vegan beauty brand known for creating color cosmetic product collections inspired by at-risk animals, today announced the launch of their newest product, a highlighting face palette inspired by the majestic Sea Turtle which is dedicated to its conservation and well-being.

This is the 3rd animal-inspired beauty collection for the young indie brand who launched in October 2019, solely to bring awareness to animals on the ‘to be extinct’ list.  Starting with their first two collections, Tiger and Polar Bear, the initial assortment included eye shadow palettes and lip glosses inspired by the colors of the two animals and their natural habitat.  The brand donates 10% of sales to its animal and habitat-related charity partners. 

Sea Turtles play a vital role in preserving a healthy marine ecosystem.  As Sea Turtle populations decline, so does their ability to perform this critical function.  Shared Planet’s collection of shimmering, pearlescent highlighters is inspired by the colors of the Sea Turtle and was created to shed light on the plight of this animal.  

The Shared Planet™ Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette contains 5 warm golden shades designed to complement all skin tones.  Each metallic hue imparts a sheer wash of color that melts into skin, layering together to create a natural, lit from within, radiance.  Dust over cheeks, brow bone, cupid’s bow, bridge of nose or any high point on the face or body for a multidimensional glow.

All Shared Planet is committed to keeping its use of plastics to an absolute minimum.  Our brand ethos is to be as thoughtful as possible with regard to anything we put out into the environment, including the packaging we crate.  For that reason, our palettes are made of paperboard and hand wrapped in foil paper.

Ninety-nine percent of all species that have ever lived have gone extinct over the course of five mass extinctions, which, in the past, were largely a result of natural causes such as volcano eruptions and asteroid impacts,” said Aashna Sharma, Founder of Shared Planet™.  “Today, the rate of extinction is occurring 1,000 to 10,000 times faster because of human activity. The main modern causes of extinction are the loss of habitat due to deforestation and climate change.”

She continued, “There are also other threats to species such as the pervasive plastic pollution in the ocean.  A recent study found that 100 percent of sea turtles had plastic or microplastic in their systems.”


She continued, “There are also other threats to species such as the pervasive plastic pollution in the ocean.  A recent study found that 100 percent of sea turtles had plastic or microplastic in their systems.”
The Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette will launch exclusively on Sharedplanet.com in early-August, 2020, just in time for the summer season.  The palette will retail for $48.00 and as always, 10% of all sales will be donated to animal and habitat-related charities, including its newest charity partner, The Sea Turtle Conservancy.

Michael Todd Beauty To Launch Clarisonic Compatible Replacement Brushes

Michael Todd Beauty, the leading maker of at-home beauty devices, including the Soniclear brand of sonic facial cleansing brushes, announced today plans to launch a line of Clarisonic compatible replacement brushes. The decision is in response to retail partners and Clarisonic users alike reaching out to the Company for a trusted source for replacement brushes following L’Oreal’s decision to shut down Clarisonic.

According to Lewis Hendler, Michael Todd’s chair: “Michael Todd Beauty – long known for its obsession with product quality and customer satisfaction – is best situated to fill this void. The millions of Clarisonic users in the marketplace deserve great facial cleansing at a fair priceOur Clarisonic compatibles will do that! By launching Clarisonic compatibles, Michael Todd will fulfill its role as steward of the category, strategically ensuring the needs of Clarisonic users are met despite the withdrawal of Clarisonic from the market.”

Michael Friend, the Company’s President continues: “Clarisonic compatibles will feature polished bristle tips for gentle, non-irritating cleansing and Michael Todd’s signature LIFE antimicrobial protection, the same features we offer in our Soniclear brushes. The new Clarisonic compatible brushes will thoroughly cleanse, exfoliate, polish and improve the complexion in a single 30-second cleansing and stay cleaner, fresher longer between uses with our patented antimicrobial technology.” Concludes Friend, “For these reasons, Soniclear brushes are and the Clarisonic compatible brushes will be superior to competitors’ silicone brush systems which lack our antimicrobial protection and take more time and multiple steps such as firstly using makeup wipes to remove dirt, oil and makeup prior to cleansing with a silicone system. There’s just no comparison – the Soniclear cleansing brushes remove a full face of makeup, dirt, SPF and oil – in one step and in seconds.”

Michael Todd’s Clarisonic compatible replacement brushes will come in two skin types initially: regular and sensitive. Other models with additional features are also being planned. Clarisonic compatibles will be available on the Company’s website www.michaeltoddbeauty.com, where pre-orders are being accepted starting August 1st, 2020. Additional retailers will soon follow.

For more than a decade, Michael Todd Beauty has been providing great home-use beauty devices at fair prices addressing a broad range of health and beauty concerns. The Company’s mission is to make the home feel like a  day spa and the treatments like a professional performed them.

Plastic Surgery In A Pandemic World: Safety Protocols Your Doctor Should Use

People still want to look their best – even when few are looking at them. As the pandemic continues and social distancing remains an important public safety measure, cosmetic surgery is resuming across the country. The elective medical procedure was prohibited in most states throughout the peak months of the pandemic, but the phasing in of business reopenings has brought it back. Daily operations won’t be the same as before, though, due to heightened health priorities. 

“It will seem and look a little different when a patient visits the office, but the approach by the professional should always be the same: patient first,”

Dr. Scott Miller

Dr. Scott Miller, (www.MillerCosmeticSurgery.com), is a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon. “Plastic surgery requires head, heart, and hands. Head for knowledge and vision, heart for empathy, hands for technical expertise. “Patient safety is always No. 1, but now it’s incumbent on all surgeons to ensure they and their staff leave no stone unturned when it comes to keeping their facility clean. Strict and consistent health and safety practices have to be followed every day.” Dr. Miller discusses what safety protocols patients should now expect at a plastic surgery facility:

  • Pre-screening before arriving. Several days before a scheduled surgery, patients are pre-screened to go over their recent health. “It includes whether they have had any COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, sore throat, difficulty breathing, loss of smell/taste, etc.,” Dr. Miller says. “Additionally, you need to know if they’ve traveled anywhere in the U.S. or abroad in the previous three weeks, or if they’ve had any contact with people who had symptoms. They’ll also fill out a form including these kinds of questions when they arrive.”
  • Increased sanitization. “Regular and deep sanitization efforts to keep the facilities as germ-free as possible are essential,” Dr. Miller says. “This includes continually disinfecting common areas and high-touch surfaces, starting from the front-office check-in area to each treatment and exam room before and after each patient interaction. Medical-grade air purifiers that circulate the air are very important. There are also machines that create a suction field over the head of a patient who is receiving facial injectables, clearing the air of potentially infectious particles.”
  • Strict adherence to CDC recommendations. All patients should be temperature-screened when they arrive. “And like many medical and dental offices,” Dr. Miller says, “plastic surgery facilities are limiting and staggering appointments to stay within social distancing guidelines, keeping their waiting rooms mostly sparse. New patients’ first consultations are often done by video conference. Also, patients should wait in their car until the staff is ready for their appointment.”
  • Wearing full PPE gear. “Providers and their staff will have to completely safeguard themselves and patients with increased personal protection equipment,” Dr. Miller says. “Everybody wears N95 respirator masks, gloves, scrubs, gowns and eye protection during direct patient contact. For procedures such as lip fillers, wearing an N95 mask, the surgeon’s approach is from above and the side, thus preventing close face-to-face frontal exposure and avoiding droplets in either direction.”

“People will keep wanting to help their appearance, to get a renewed look back,” Dr. Miller says. “The various ways of cosmetic surgery can still be done safely, and that’s a team effort between patient, doctor, and staff. Everybody has to pay careful attention to ensure safety.” 

Dr. Scott Miller

Dr. Scott Miller (www.MillerCosmeticSurgery.com) is a board-certified cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon and the founder of Miller Cosmetic Surgery Center. He earned his medical degree from the University of California Irvine, College of Medicine and performed his plastic surgery residency at the University of California San Diego, School of Medicine. Dr. Miller took a prestigious Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship with world-renowned plastic surgeon Bruce Connell, M.D.; is an attending surgeon at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, Calif.; and a voluntary clinical instructor and assistant professor of plastic surgery at the University of California, San Diego. A sought-after speaker, he has published numerous scientific articles and textbook chapters and has been honored many times for his contributions to aesthetic surgery.

New Skin Rejuvenation Procedure From Nurysh

Deep + uniq, the latest offering from leading skincare innovator Nurysh, features a revolutionary “press & lift” action applicator not available in other skin rejuvenation products on the market.

Utilizing skin needling, or microneedling therapy, deep + uniq revitalizes tired and lusterless skin using a dynamic two-pronged approach led by the innovative, one-of-a-kind deep applicator. A pain-free, non-surgical skin rejuvenation device, deep gently punctures the skin to create a controlled skin injury – triggering the body to fill these micro channels by producing new collagen and elastin. These simultaneous processes of neovascularization and neocollagenesis promote improvement in skin texture and firmness, while safely and effectively reducing wrinkles, scars, pore size and stretch marks.

Along with boosting elastin and collagen production, the deep applicator also has an equally important role: that of delivering uniq – a powerful serum of niacinamide, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Deep‘s innovative technology facilitates the penetration, absorption and effectiveness of the topically applied uniq serum to restore skin’s luster, vibrancy and texture.  

“At Nurysh, we’re dedicated to creating the most cutting-edge and evidence-based skincare products for men and women interested in healthy, vibrant and younger-looking skin,” explained Thomas Kraft, Nurysh partner. “We’ve done just that by developing the ‘press & lift’ deep applicator that delivers topical serums where they’re needed most, allowing skin to be repaired from the inside out – safely, painlessly and efficiently.”

For optimal results, deep + uniq should be used two to three times per week on smaller, targeted areas of the face like nasolabial folds, around lips and eyes, and between eyebrows.

Nurysh is currently developing a product for hair loss and regrowth that would utilize the deep applicator as well, creating another market for this highly specialized skin rejuvenation device.

For a limited time, deep + uniq will be available on Amazon at a special price of $89.95 (regularly $129).

To learn more about the one-of-a-kind deep applicator, watch the user guide video at www.nurysh.com.  

About Nurysh 

Launched by Uplevity in 2016, indie beauty brand Nurysh is an evidence-based clinical skincare company that provides professional skincare products and effective skincare solutions.  Dedicated to developing clinically validated skincare products and devices that improve the physical and emotional well-being of people around the world, Nurysh utilizes the latest anti-aging, balancing, hydrating and illuminating technologies to advance the science of skin health, one face at a time.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG)  is widely recognized as the most trusted and rigorous evaluator of chemical safety in consumer products. Its prestigious mark is awarded only to products that meet the most stringent ingredient and transparency requirements.

“As active stewards and vocal champions of the highest quality standards in product safety, purity and sustainability throughout our careers, we are incredibly proud that Prima is the first brand in the hemp CBD industry to have products “EWG VERIFIED™,” 

Laurel Angelica Myers, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Prima.

“In a new and unregulated industry, EWG’s mark is critical in helping vulnerable consumers easily identify products that are non-toxic and healthier.

Prima Co-Founders Christopher Gavigan, Laurel Angelica Myers and Jessica Assaf have a collective 30 years of working with EWG through their careers as health and clean product activists and mission-oriented operators. 

“As the clean beauty and skincare market continues to grow, it is vital that we at EWG continue to grow with it. The five Prima CBD products marks a first for the EWG VERIFIED™ program, and an important milestone for EWG, Prima and the skincare industry as a whole,” said Ken Cook, President and Co-Founder of the Environmental Working Group.

The EWG VERIFIED™ mark ensures that the product avoids EWG’s chemicals of concern (ingredients with health, ecotoxicity and/or contamination concerns), provides full ingredient transparency and disclosure, and is manufactured according to good manufacturing practices. 

“The CBD industry needs regulations and standards to protect consumer health and safety, and EWG’s rigorous independent verification process sets the bar high for CBD brands and the industry at large to follow our lead. We’re proud to have EWG’s support as we deepen our industry-defining standards,” said Jessica Assaf, Co-Founder and Chief Education Officer of Prima.

Japan’s #1 Facial Exfoliator (Cure Aqua Gel) Launches “Cure Best Seller Kit”

Japan’s #1 facial exfoliator, Natural Aqua Gel Cure, with 4.4 out of 5 stars and over 3,600 customer ratings on Amazon, is now part of Toyo Life Services International’s new Cure Best Seller Kit. Now, there is no need to purchase these 2 top-selling products separately. This timeless kit contains Cure Aqua Gel and Cure Water Treatment as the perfect set to complete anyone’s beauty routine for $70 on Amazon.

The Cure Best Seller Kit includes:

1. Natural Aqua Gel Cure

Cure is a product that gently exfoliates your skin, removing its dried-up top layer. The coolest part? You will visibly see mini white bumps and dots start to form as you massage the product. That’s your dead skin cells coming right off! Cure is 91% activated hydrogen water, which has an anti-oxidant (anti-aging) effect. Conventional chemical peeling uses strong acids (approx. pH1.3) to dissolve protein. Cure Aqua Gel, on the other hand, gently catches waste dead skin on the surface of the skin and removes it with the unique formula. Plus, it contains Aloe, Gingko and Rosemary extract to remove unwanted dead skin cells. You will be surprised at how smooth your skin becomes!

2. Cure Water Treatment

Cure Water Treatment, with Activated Hydrogen Water droplets, hydrates the skin without oil. It is an all-in-one cream to use as your daily facial moisturizer both in the morning and at night. Plus, it makes for the perfect foundation when applying makeup or to use as an all over body lotion.

About Activated Hydrogen Water:

4 Tips For Avoiding Hair Loss From Stress & More

People go partially or fully bald for any number of reasons – hormones, genetics and aging, among others – but since National Hair Loss Awareness Month arrives this August in the middle of a pandemic-fueled recession, one factor is taking center stage.

Stress!

“Stress certainly can contribute to hair loss because it can affect hormone levels,” says Dr. Patrick Angelos (drpatrickangelos.com) author of The Science and Art of Hair Restoration: A Patient’s Guide.  “Any number of stressful events can lead to a sudden loss of hair, although in those cases the hair typically will grow back over time.”

For more permanent hair-loss concerns, Angelos, a plastic surgeon who specializes in hair restoration, uses robotic treatment to help patients regain their beloved locks. That process involves an advanced, minimally invasive hair transplant system that uses technology driven by artificial intelligence.

“Among the reasons patients consider hair restoration is that they want to get back some of their youthful look and feel better about themselves,” Angelos says. “Helping them accomplish that is one of the great satisfactions I get from being a plastic surgeon.”

But for those who want to keep their hair healthy and full now and who hope to avoid ever reaching the point where they need hair-loss intervention, Angelos offers a few tips:

  • Maintain good hair care and hygiene habits. The way you wash your hair could undermine your efforts to prevent hair loss, Angelos says. As you wash, avoid pulling back on your hair because that can put traction on the follicles. “The same goes for combing,” he says. “It’s less stressful on the follicles to wash and comb your hair forward, toward your face, instead of toward the back of your scalp and neck. Also, long hair weighs more, so on its own, it can put more traction on the follicles.” Brushing your hair regularly, however, is good because it massages the scalp and helps improve blood flow and circulation. The condition of your hair should also be in balance – not too oily, not too dry. “Finally, don’t overuse a hair dryer because that can make hair weak and brittle, which can lead to more hair loss,” Angelos says.
  • Treat health issues. Hormonal imbalances and other medical conditions such as low thyroid and iron or iodine deficiency can contribute to hair loss, Angelos says. “Avoid overuse of supplements and medications,” he says. “Since supplements such as testosterone, human growth hormone, whey, and DHEA can cause thinning and hair loss, especially avoid excessive use of these.”
  • Be aware of your nutritional needs. Some fad diets may have a nutritional impact on hair loss. “It’s really important to eat a healthy balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and fat,” Angelos says. He also recommends taking a multivitamin that includes vitamins A, B complex, C, D and E, along with the minerals zinc, iodine and iron, all of which help with hair health.
  • Avoid unhealthy environments. The negative health effects of smoking are well known, especially related to lung cancer. But one more reason to avoid smoking, Angelos says, is that it can affect hair loss. In addition to smoking, other environmental factors that can contribute to hair loss include environmental exposures like radiation and air pollution.

When efforts to prevent hair loss fall short, those who prefer to avoid baldness can explore the possibilities that modern science provides.

“Not every patient needs hair transplantation, though,” Angelos says. “Especially when it comes to younger patients, it may be best to start with other options. Since the reasons for hair loss vary from person to person and are unique to their circumstances, a good place to start is by determining the cause of hair loss in the first place, and then go from there.”

About Dr. Patrick Angelos

Dr. Patrick Angelos (drpatrickangelos.com), author of The Science and Art of Hair Restoration: A Patient’s Guide, is a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon whose primary surgical interests include hair restoration and facial plastic surgery. He is certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology.

As previously announced, the Garnier Brand is making a global financial donation of more than $1 million to support the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) and Red Crescent Societies to provide urgent assistance to the most vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19

Garnier USA proudly announces a commitment in the fight against COVID-19. In response to the hand sanitizer shortage situation and the requests from the brand’s mass market and drug retail partners, Garnier will produce 2 million units of 4- fluid ounce hand sanitizers at their Franklin, New Jersey manufacturing facility. The hand sanitizers will begin distribution in May 2020 free of charge to frontline retail employees in the most affected areas of the country.

“We are very grateful for the hard work of essential employees and the service they are bringing to our local communities. Our number one priority at Garnier is to take care of each other. We are working as quickly as possible to produce hand sanitizers to help frontline retail employees stay safe and healthy during this Coronavirus outbreak,” says Alanna McDonald, President of Garnier USA.
