CTZN Cosmetics, a revolutionary direct-to-consumer makeup brand breaking barriers within the beauty industry, is thrilled to announce the launch of its debut products, available for purchase as of May 15, 2019. Co-founded by Los Angeles born, Dubairaised, ethnically Pakistani sisters Aleena, Aleezeh and Naseeha Khan, this breakthrough cosmetics collection includes:

  • NUDIVERSAL Lip Duo (MSRP $25 each): The first drop of the NUDIVERSAL collection. Available in a ground-breaking 25 shades of nude, these double-ended lip products feature a matte lipstick on one end and a translucent lip gloss on the other. The lipstick end is infused with wild mango butter to repair dry lips with a smooth texture and an intense color release while the lip gloss creates balm-like softness and a mirror finish.
  • GLOBALM (MSRP $19 each): Available in two shades (Clear and Pearl), this multi-purpose dewy non-sticky balm functions as lip balm, highlight and/or eye gloss. A no-rules product that can add shine anywhere on the face. Clear is a colorless balm while Pearl contains added pigmented shimmer for a more sparkly highlight.

“We’ve worked tirelessly perfecting these formulas to ensure we had a nude lipstick shade for every skin tone – no more mixing required,” said Naseeha Khan, Co-Founder and Head of Product Curation, who is also a certified makeup artist. “We’ve also developed a ‘Get Matched’ tool on our website, to help shoppers navigate shade matching right from their computer or phone.”

CTZN Cosmetics aims to disrupt the makeup world by not only addressing what is lacking in the current beauty landscape, but also making necessary advancements forward. CTZN’s focus is primarily on the underrepresentation of demographic groups by mainstream makeup companies. The brand’s first campaign images feature seven models of varying ethnic backgrounds and genders.

“The initial concept for CTZN was born during a shopping experience a few years ago in a major beauty retailer,” said Aleena Khan, Co-Founder and Head of Branding & Marketing. “Not only did we not see anyone in beauty campaigns who looked like us, we also noticed brands failed to consider certain demographics in their product development. There were brands that had named beige tone lipsticks ‘nude’, which completely excludes a vast majority of ethnic groups, whose nudes are in fact far from beige”.

In addition to making strides for improved representation, CTZN aims to set the standard of corporate social responsibility in the beauty industry with cruelty free formulas that are strictly paraben free, talc free and vegetarian—vegan, where possible. The brand also would like to eventually certify their products as kosher and halal.

“With CTZN Cosmetics, we truly aim to redefine the meaning of ‘make-up for all’ by catering to everyone,” said Aleezeh Khan, Co-Founder and Head of Operations. “To that end, we’ll be leveraging our blog, ‘Of The World’, as an educational platform to highlight people of different backgrounds who can teach us more about their cultures through the world of beauty.”

CTZN Cosmetics products are now available for purchase online in North America and Europe. For more information and to shop the CTZN Cosmetics collection, visit ctzncosmetics.com.

Led by health and wellness veterans Christopher Gavigan, Jessica Assaf and Laurel Angelica Myers

Prima, the new industry-defining hemp CBD wellness brand, announced today the launch of three signature products in their body, beauty and supplement categories available at their new online shop at prima.co.

Based in Santa Monica, CA, Prima’s founders are The Honest Company® Co-Founder, bestselling author and purpose-driven entrepreneur Christopher Gavigan, award-winning health and cannabis activist Jessica Assaf and mission-oriented operator and Honest alum Laurel Angelica Myers.

“The time has come for hemp and cannabinoid science to be unlocked and adopted as a way to reclaim better balance, more joy and greater healing — and we are leading the uprising. In an age of health-altering digital addictions and epidemic levels of chronic stress and anxiety, Prima seeks to be the one trusted wellness resource and solution for all,” said Prima Founder and CEO Christopher Gavigan.

With an unprecedented commitment to transparency, the purest functional ingredients and verified potency, Prima is already raising the standards in the industry; as the first brand to be awarded the MadeSafe certification (verifying that no toxic ingredients were used) in the CBD category.

Prima’s launch assortment includes essential, daily products to help reduce everyday stress, calm and soothe skin, and increase overall balance of the body’s physiological systems.

  • Night Magic: a luxurious skin treatment for face and neck for improved radiance, tone, and balance, made with 13 potent, organic botanical oils and 150mg hemp cannabinoids, including naturally occurring CBD ($88.00)
  • Skin Therapy: a nourishing and emollient-rich therapeutic skin butter to help support skin health and lock in moisture ($38.00)
  • The Daily: a once-daily, vegan softgel hemp wellness blend, doctor-formulated and designed for optimal bioavailability ($45.00 / 30 capsules)

“We’re thrilled to provide products that raise the bar in terms of efficacy and experience — an offering that is meticulously formulated, ethically sourced and made from active botanicals, including our single-origin hemp. And we have dedicated ourselves to forging relationships with hemp farmers and suppliers as committed to uncompromising quality and sustainability as we are. We feel a deep responsibility to pioneer the trusted standards so needed in this young, emerging industry,” said Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer Laurel Angelica Myers.

Prima was established in March 2019 as an education-first resource to demystify the therapeutic potential of hemp cannabinoids and CBD via original content on prima.co. The launch of their online shop represents the company’s first step into the direct-to-consumer channel. Prima will be available at select retailers in Q3 timed with the launch of additional wellness products.

“As the deepest expression of our values and truth, we seek to establish hemp as the universal wellness tool that we know it to be. In service of our community, we have made a commitment to providing an unparalleled resource for scientifically backed education, innovative wellness tools, inspirational content and personalized support — all of which will help to achieve a reimagined state of health and well-being,” said Co-Founder and Chief Education Officer Jessica Assaf.

Galvanic Total Home Esthetics Skincare Takes Consumers by Storm

“Style Follow Skinable“, a beauty product created through a partnership between TheHan Co., Ltd. and the well-known, beauty-fashion talk show namesake, “SBS Style Follow”, will be launched in Thailand soon, and new products will be added as well. TheHan Co., Ltd. hopes that this launch will make “Style Follow Skinable” as popular in Thailand as it is in other countries.

The K-beauty industry is booming worldwide, and the beauty market in Thailand is expected to reach over 7 trillion won in 2019. There is especially fierce competition among Korean beauty companies in Thailand. In recent years, home beauty products, using a variety of technologies, have gained popularity with their approach to skincare through cosmetics.

New products that use galvanic polarity to push currents have attracted a lot of attention from consumers in recent years.

“Style Follow Skinable” is a beauty product that utilizes galvanic polarity and has received much praise in Korea and other countriesSeveral key factors have led to its popularity:

  • The “Style Follow Skinable” galvanic massager uses galvanic ions and a vibration function for everything from peeling to nutrition supply and elasticity care. It is constructed with 24K pure gold blades that are created in a careful three-stage process, making them safe to use on the skin.
  • The face cooler tightens the skin and pores even in hot weather, improving skin elasticity, and reducing the temperature of the skin through cooling therapy. It is readily distinguishable by the outstretched arms of the grips which function as an accessory cradle.
  • The True Solution Ultrasonic LED Massager offers galvanic ions (positive ion-deep cleansing, negative ion-nutrition supply), three LED therapies, 12,000 cycles per minute microwave and ultrasonic (3Mhz) skin massage.

In January 2019, South Korea’s Incheon Metropolitan City organized an export exhibition at which “Style Follow Skinable” attracted a great deal of attention from buyers in Thailand. The city’s Incheon TechnoPark and Thailand Trade Office will continue to cooperate in Thailand business.

As the first Chinese enterprise to be selected to the WEF’s network of “Manufacturing Lighthouses”, a community of leading manufacturers that are integrating Industry 4.0 technologies, Haier leveraged the exhibition to co-host the WEF Lighthouse Factory Forum with Bosch, Phoenix Contact, Rold, Sandvik, and Tata Steel. Together, the companies announced the Lighthouse Program Hannover Initiative, which seeks to set and implement industry norms for standards, technology, talent, security, and more. As the leader of this cooperation, Haier’s COSMOPlat will draw on its open ecosystem to promote and cultivate the initiative.
