Inside New Zealand’s clean and green beauty scene https://stefmike.org/inside-new-zealands-clean-and-green-beauty-scene/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 04:55:13 +0000 https://stefmike.org/inside-new-zealands-clean-and-green-beauty-scene/

In a remote part of New Zealand’s North Island, what was once a ramshackle cattle farm with pasture is now an eco-sanctuary and conservation retreat teeming with native trees and birds. The rewilding of this land, called Tahi, is the work of conservationist Suzan Craig and her team, who have planted 430,000 trees, restored acres of wetlands and brought endemic wildlife back to the area.

Craig’s mission to protect and improve the environment is supported by honey – primarily mānuka, produced from the nectar of the native mānuka flower – whose cultivation depends on biodiversity. Honey is bottled and sold, and also blended with botanicals for a skincare range, named Kaeā, to utilize its purported antimicrobial, anti-free radical and wound healing properties. Craig worked with aromatherapist Danièle Ryman on the products, including multitasking balms and a face oil. “100% of profits are donated to conservation and community projects,” says Craig. “With everything we make, biodiversity has to be at the core, and it has to be the perfect place to tell that story.”

Kaeā is one of the few skincare brands to emerge from New Zealand in recent years, part of a global beauty boom that will take industry sales to $622 billion by 2024, according to McKinsey. What makes New Zealand’s skincare offering unique is that the brands have placed sustainability at the heart of their business models, as well as using locally grown ingredients, leveraging the clean and green image of the country.

The largest of these is B-Corp certified Emma Lewisham, which launched in 2019 and is stocked on Net-a-Porter globally and Mecca across Australasia, growing 150% in course of the last 12 months. Emma Lewisham’s formulations are made from natural or nature-identical ingredients. “We do a very robust screening process, before including ingredients, that balances efficacy but also biodiversity, ingredient regeneration and how people are treated in the supply chain,” explains Emma Lewisham. , who previously worked at a Japanese technology company. founder of the brand. The cult-favorite Skin Reset serum, which contains olive and kale extracts, vitamin C, niacinamide and licorice root, sold nearly 75,000 units in one year.

Lewisham has also designed its business on a circular model, so all bottles can be refilled (40% of global sales are refills), while the brand collects its packaging for recycling wherever you are in the world. “The biggest priority for beauty brands right now is to move away from the industry’s linear system – which creates waste and a huge amount of carbon – to one that’s refillable, reusable and takes ownership. what they bring to the world.” Last year, Lewisham released the intellectual property of his company’s circular packaging model to encourage others to adopt it. “If every brand did this, it would have a significant impact. And we showed that it was possible.

Trunque, which focuses on body products and launched last year, uses only natural formulations that include native New Zealand red seaweed, for its moisturizing and plumping effects; Marlborough-grown grape seeds, rich in antioxidants and polyphenols – and kiwifruit rich in vitamins C and E. Maryse incorporates mānuka leaves and native kawakawa, while Raaie uses a mix of locally grown terrestrial, marine and alpine plants , including mamaku, the New Zealand black fern. Surface, which was founded by Georgina McCormack – sister of jeweler Jessica McCormack – uses native wakame and mānuka seaweed in its line of hand and body products.

On Great Barrier Island, 100 km off Auckland, Tama Toki uses matauranga Maori know-how for its Aotea skincare range. He sustainably harvests the island’s native flora and produces everything locally, including the distillation of ingredients, to create jobs for his community. “Our desire is to highlight our anecdotal history as Maori with western science to prove the healing nature of some of the floras we use,” Toki explains. It also establishes a circular business model, in which production, manufacturing and packaging facilities are powered by solar energy; bio-waste from the extraction process is reinjected into crop feed; and water is collected naturally and reused whenever possible.

“Whatever you do, there is always an inherent carbon footprint due to packaging and energy,” adds Craig. “We want to show that you can be climate positive – or we call it biodiversity positive – and have a successful business; it shouldn’t be one or the other. And also to challenge the very widely accepted financial model of the industry. Measures that should help to help New Zealand live up to the image that makes it famous worldwide.

Noble Panacea Vitamin C Booster Review: Why We Love It https://stefmike.org/noble-panacea-vitamin-c-booster-review-why-we-love-it/ Sat, 12 Nov 2022 14:06:30 +0000 https://stefmike.org/noble-panacea-vitamin-c-booster-review-why-we-love-it/

At T&C, we pride ourselves on our strong sense of quality. With Tried & True, our editors will give you insight into pieces they just can’t live without.


Ask any dermatologist, and they’ll tell you that no skincare routine is complete without vitamin C. And they’re absolutely right. The antioxidant is truly the workhorse of any anti-aging regimen. It can solve just about any skincare problem you can think of, ranging from dullness and discoloration to fine lines and wrinkles and uneven texture. With regular use, the results are always stunning: noticeably brighter, firmer and firmer skin. And really, who doesn’t want a glowing complexion? If I were to be stuck on a desert island and only allowed to bring one beauty product, it would be vitamin C.

Noble Panacea Vitamin C Booster

Noble Panacea Vitamin C Booster

The problem with the potent ingredient, however, is an extremely short shelf life. If you’re as devoted to vitamin C as I am, you’ll know that it oxidizes incredibly quickly (hence the brown/orange color it takes on) and when it does, the potency fades immediately , losing all its benefits for the skin. . I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened a new serum tint only to have it go bad in about a month. It really takes a bite out of me every time I have to throw away a half-used bottle.

preview of the organized style section

But with Noble Panacea’s recently released vitamin C booster, you don’t have to worry about that anymore. Similar to the brand’s other formula, this new treatment is housed in a sleek container and comes individually dosed in encapsulated sachets, meaning less risk of oxidation, more skincare benefits . It contains 20% pure L-ascorbic acid (the purest form of vitamin C), plus eight additional sources of the superstar antioxidant, including camu camu, acerola and kakadu plum, which work together to protect against radical damage, even skin tone and deliver an out-of-this-world glow. Equally impressive: the innovative science behind Noble Panacea. It uses a special molecular technology developed by Nobel laureate Sir Fraser Stoddart that provides targeted, time-released dispersion of active ingredients onto the skin.

The Vitamin C Booster is a four week treatment that is meant to be mixed with your favorite serum, but I have been using it daily with the Prime Radiance Serum for three months already. I can’t speak to the fine line reduction benefits since I don’t really have any wrinkles, but the glow and plump results are beyond that. My skin feels supple almost instantly after application, any signs of dark spots are gone, and the powerful formula has given my dull skin a glow. What about the fact that I don’t have to worry about it turning brown on me? It really is the icing on the cake.

And just in case you’re concerned about the environmental impact of packaging (as you should be!), all Noble Panacea products are vegan, refillable and recyclable. If you’re considering incorporating the Vitamin C Booster into your regimen – and I strongly suggest you do – don’t forget to coat your skin with a layer of SPF! Remember: without adequate sun protection, vitamin C loses its effectiveness.

Lizzo uses this soothing mask to soothe ‘irritated’ skin https://stefmike.org/lizzo-uses-this-soothing-mask-to-soothe-irritated-skin/ Sun, 06 Nov 2022 10:39:42 +0000 https://stefmike.org/lizzo-uses-this-soothing-mask-to-soothe-irritated-skin/
  • Lizzo shared the face mask that calmed her itchy, irritated skin during the tour.
  • After using First Aid Beauty’s FAB Pharma Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask, she said her skin was “significantly less itchy, irritated and angry”.
  • Shop the mask and its other favorites for sensitive skin below.

A world tour and all the glamorous makeup that comes with it naturally stressed Lizzo’s skin. Last week, the pop star took to TikTok to get ready after a day of performing and shared the face mask she used to soothe the itchiness and irritation plaguing her sensitive skin. The aptly named FAB Pharma Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask from First Aid Beauty literally came to the rescue.

“Don’t be ready with me on tour because my skin broke out,” she said. “Full disclosure, there is nothing wrong with having texture on your skin. My issue is the itching that occurs and the irritation. She later added, “I have extremely sensitive, so if I have scented soaps – and I accidentally use scented soap in one of the hotels – it’s going to make me break out and itch.”

Before applying the mask, she washed her face and removed makeup using a tried-and-true dermatologist-loved favorite: Cetaphil’s Gentle Cleanser, which she says was recommended by her makeup artist. .

“It’s a nice mousse,” she said as she rubbed it.

After rinsing, she switched to the FAB Mask, working the creamy texture into her skin. “I know this all sounds very #ad but it’s not,” she joked.

The Arnica Relief mask is a unique formula because it is made to leave on the skin. It contains arnica flower, a botanical extract believed to help accelerate the skin’s natural healing process, calendula, a flower extract that helps calm and soothe signs of distress, and centella asiatica, a healing Chinese herb that helps soothe damaged and fragile skin.

Other notable ingredients include calming allantoin and aloe leaf juice.

Sephora shoppers love the innovative formula and swear by it for everything from post-facial redness to rosacea. “I’ve been using it for a few years now and have extremely dry skin. I used to have eczema and it soothes my skin and redness so well,” one reviewer wrote. “I have never woken up to such soft and hydrated skin, my redness has calmed down tremendously and my skin feels great,” added another.

“Great product, even calmed down some patches of eczema that didn’t respond to hydrocortisone cream,” someone else wrote.

After the cream mask, Lizzo gave her skin an extra dose of love with the Cicapair Tiger Grass Calming Serum Mask and gave fans an update on how her skin felt the next morning.

“My skin is definitely less itchy, irritated and angry. I feel really good about what I just did,” she said, adding that she also slept on a silk pillowcase to minimize any additional sensitivity.” It all depends on how your skin feels. And I’ll keep you guys posted with more.”

The best hot tools to gift this holiday season will enhance your styling routine https://stefmike.org/the-best-hot-tools-to-gift-this-holiday-season-will-enhance-your-styling-routine/ Tue, 25 Oct 2022 21:04:17 +0000 https://stefmike.org/the-best-hot-tools-to-gift-this-holiday-season-will-enhance-your-styling-routine/

In the same spirit as die hard and mean girls are considered holiday movies for their respective mega-fans, hot tools have a very special place in the gift season for beauty lovers. They make for some of the most festive and fun gifts with their flashing lights and gold hardware, awesome and innovative technology, and lots of bundle options.

We’ve curated some of our favorites to gift your loved ones. All year, team Seduce extensively tests heated hair stylers – burning our locks for the sake of research – to bring you our recommendations for the best performing products. Our finds: flat irons that create glassy, ​​straight styles, waves and curling irons for beachy waves and full-bodied curls, brushes for high-speed hair dryers, and more. Some of these tools have even had a makeover with special edition colors and product add-ons that make them the perfect gift set.

So read on to find “grool” holiday gifts – the ones that will have your most beauty-obsessed friend hugging and kissing you (even when you’re not under the mistletoe).

Waving and curling wands

Beachwaver S1 White Dual Voltage Rotating Curling Iron

A good wave or curling wand can be the difference between burnt, limp hairstyles and healthy, bouncy hair. Our picks for three standout curling wands are functional, but also gorgeous to look at on your vanity. The Kristin Ess Soft Wave Swivel Wand does exactly what it says: it folds at the golden crack above its temperature adjustment knobs – turning into an L-shaped tool. In its folded position, the tool is easier to handle, allowing you to easily reach the back of your head. It creates flowing waves without any bicep burn, which is genius.

Likewise, the Beachwaver S1 White Dual Voltage Rotating Curling Iron makes it easy to create curls. Decide which way you want your hair to curl (I prefer my curls facing my face) and press its button. The barrel spins, wrapping around the section of hair you’re working with.

Finally, the T3 Tourbillon Trio is a favorite among Seduce Staff. It comes with different sized barrels (1 inch, 1.5 inch, and a tapered option) to give you the bouncy curls and waves you desire. (My go-to is the taper attachment, which creates lived-in waves.) This is the ultimate starter set for anyone who loves a traditional curling wand.

Irons

If your loved one loves a good flat iron, consider these two from GHD and L’Oreál. The GHD Unplugged Styler smooths hair for glassy, ​​soft locks, while being travel-friendly. The L’Oréal Steampod Professional Flat Iron uses steam and a built-in comb to create sleek styling – and the tool comes with Kérastase’s heat-protecting and shine-enhancing products.

Waves

Our crimping picks this year may seem like a blast from the past, but note that they’re not like the crimpers or rollers of the past. Brand Beauty Babe Waves X creates cool, shiny, party-ready S-waves in less than 20 minutes, while the Conair Big Curls and Waves Hair Fixer creates waves and full-bodied Hollywood flips.

Hair dryer

Our picks for hair dryer gifts take blow-drying to the next level. The Hot Tools One Step Hair Dryer dries, smoothes and adds shine in just one styling session. The Amika Double Agent dries and straightens – and is business editor Jennifer Hussein’s go-to for a quick styling session. She calls it “seriously impressive” because it gives her straight hair in less than 10 minutes, while her hair usually takes 30-40 minutes to straighten.

The balance of natural ingredients and cosmetics suits the skin: Mithila Palkar | Lifestyle Beauty https://stefmike.org/the-balance-of-natural-ingredients-and-cosmetics-suits-the-skin-mithila-palkar-lifestyle-beauty/ Sun, 23 Oct 2022 06:26:13 +0000 https://stefmike.org/the-balance-of-natural-ingredients-and-cosmetics-suits-the-skin-mithila-palkar-lifestyle-beauty/

New Delhi: Actress Mithila Palkar started her acting career in 2014 and has since starred in a wide range of movies and web series including Chopsticks (a Netflix Original movie) and Karwaan. She rose to fame through her roles in the popular web series Little Things and Girl in the City. She is also a well-known singer. In 2016, a YouTube video of her singing the famous Marathi song Hi Chal Turu Turu in the style of the cut song went viral and had over 6 million views.

Mithila has joined Plum, India’s first 100% vegan and cruelty-free beauty and personal care line, as a brand ambassador. She will be featured in major Plum ads on digital media.

Plum, one of the fastest growing BPC companies online, has also made a name for itself in the retail industry. Besides being one of the top brands on major e-commerce sites; the brand is currently offered in over 250 Indian cities through over 900 assisted outlets and over 10,000 unassisted outlets, with the latter number increasing month on month. The company recently won the Best Vegan Cosmetics award from PETA India’s Vegan Fashion Awards.

Commenting on the announcement, Shankar Prasad, CEO and Founder of Plum said, “Plum is a youthful brand that resonates with today’s confident woman. So bringing in a millennial youth icon like Mithila Palkar seemed like a natural fit. It reflects the brand values ​​of being honest and real. Our association with her is a step towards strengthening the connection with our customers and reaching millions of additional women who will emotionally associate with our brand and enjoy using our products. We’re sure her voice will inspire them to be comfortable with their skincare and beauty choices and we couldn’t be happier to have her as our face for Plum.”

As the first brand ambassador, actress Mithila Palkar shares, “I’m so thrilled to be the face of a brand like Plum who believes in spreading so much goodness around the world. I deeply resonate with the brand’s philosophy and unique approach towards creating products that are truly good for your skin.In Plum, I have found my partner, who delivers an authentic, reliable, effective and delicious skincare experience . I’m really happy to be associated with them.”

Mithila Palkar on her skincare regimen:

What does skincare mean to you? What prompted you to dwell on the subject?

To be honest, I didn’t take skincare seriously until my skin started acting up. As I built and followed my skincare routine, it started to feel less like a chore and more like a self-love ritual. Now I look forward to those quiet times in the morning and evening, where I am simply in tune with myself, taking care of my skin, so that I can look and feel my best!

Your tips for a quick and healthy DIY formulation for the skin.

I believe in eating all the healthy ingredients in my kitchen rather than putting them on my face. That said, I have a quick fix for my skin! I make sure to always have plum aloe vera gel on hand just because of its versatility. When I’ve been in the sun all day, I use it as a soothing mask; if my eyes are a little tired, i use it under the eyes to soothe puffiness and i also use it as a spot treatment if my skin is irritated in a certain place. Sometimes I even use it to keep my eyebrows and flyaways in place.

The key here is to really strike a good balance between natural ingredients and products that are suitable for your skin type. It’s this very balance that has worked for me over the years to keep my skin healthy and happy!

Tell us about your skincare routine.

My skin has been loving Plum’s Vitamin C range lately. I start by cleansing my skin with their Vitamin C Foaming Face Wash, followed by a few spritzes of the Vitamin C Toner for an instant pick-me-up. After it dries, I go in with a few drops of the 15% vitamin C face serum. Once the serum sinks into my skin, which is quick, I seal it all in with the moisturizer at the vitamin C. Of course, I supplement that with sunscreen and I’m ready to face the day!

A beauty or skincare product that has changed the game for you.

I should say Plum 15% Vitamin C Face Serum. After just a few weeks of regular use, I noticed it gave my skin a major glow. But not only that, some blackheads I had were also starting to fade gradually. Now I don’t go a day without! I also firmly believe that it’s not just the products we use to have healthy skin. I also attribute my glow to the workouts I do every morning, my balanced diet, and the fact that I care so much about staying hydrated throughout the day.
