AYUNA Skincare: Less is More

Over a decade and another lifetime ago, I knew Begoña Sanjuan as a master international educator, and she knew me as a Spa Director. We collaborated on several different events, and I always marveled at her depth of knowledge and passion for her work. Imagine my deja vu and delight when I connected with her again, this time each founders of our own companies. AYUNA skincare was founded by Begoña and her business partner Isabel Ramos, a scientist and master formulator. With over 40 years combined experience in skincare and spa, the two Spain-based beauty veterans created the AYUNA skincare line on the premise of “skin fasting”, a scientifically-sound practice of feeding skin only what it needs, essentially starving it of toxins, inflammatories and overstimulation. read more

Vapour Organic Beauty Gets Clear On Green Beauty Packaging

Being a green beauty brand is about more than healthy, good for you, ingredients. The green beauty movement is also leading the way in sustainable packaging and business practices that support the health of our environment. While Vapour Organic Beauty’s green beauty packaging is secondary to the formula inside the bottle, it is still an important part of our experience with a brand, and any brand founder will tell you that it’s one of the most challenging parts of creating and sustaining a compelling beauty brand. Not only does packaging need to be functional, it must also be beautiful, adequately protect the product inside from the air and elements, and be as sustainable as possible. This month we celebrate the launch of Vapour Organic Beauty’s transition from plastic to glass packaging with our Limited Edition Discovery (that’s selling out in record time). I asked Kristine Keheley and Kyrsia Boinis to share with us just what is involved in a packaging update and more ways Vapour is leading the way in sustainable beauty. read more

Dr. Tiffany Lester

It seems as if collagen is showing up everywhere, finding its way into products that now line wellness, supplement and beauty retail shelves. The science shows that the benefits of collagen supplementation include improved skin elasticity and hair, nail and bone strength. But there’s more. I was surprised to learn that Vital Proteins was actually developed to support the joint health of its Founder, Kurt Seidensticker, an avid runner, and not to support healthy skin and hair, which I assumed. read more
