Revealing women's natural beauty with color

I am fascinated by women's natural beauty and the techniques used to enhance it. Showing off their skin tone, eyes and complexion without letting color dominate, ever... I want people to say a woman is beautiful and not that she has a beautiful hair color. Every woman must be welcomed in the same way: I analyze their faces and the nature of their hair so I can work with pigments, light and contrasts to find them the most natural-looking hair color. Over the years, I have tried to develop my product range for colored hair, based on the properties of rare or ancestral natural resources (prickly pear oil, lavender, chamomile and lemon) to offer deep nourishing treatments for hair that also maintain vibrant color. Some of my products can now be used for skin as well as for the hair, for both men and women.

The most universally loved fragrance and flavor, vanilla in its purest, freshest form has captivated Danielle Raynor, Lavanila's founder, throughout her life. When she began her journey to create healthy skincare and fragrances, she discovered that some of the world's finest vanilla comes from Madagascar, where it is called Lavanila. As her formulations developed, many of them included vanilla, not only for its rich, sweet, luxurious fragrance but also for its anti-oxidant properties and aromatherapy qualities of soothing and comforting. Seeming to embody so much of what Danielle was trying to accomplish, she thought it the perfect name for her company. Today, natural vanilla is an ingredient in many of our products, and we still marvel at the wealth of benefits found within that funny looking bean that symbolizes the Lavanila mission. And it's anything but plain.

Introducing Lulu Organics - Food-grade Ingredients & No Preservatives

Lulu Organics was founded by Linda 'Lulu' Aldredge.  

"After a decade working in the beauty and fashion industry I wanted to follow more of a passion than a career.  I studied herbalism as a hobby and for fun foraged for edible and medicinal herbs on my land in upstate NY.  I would boil them down into herbal medicines and beauty products." 

I was inspired to start a company simply because I felt like my desires weren't met by the corporate beauty industry — I wanted simple, pared-down products with food-grade ingredients and no preservatives — much less chemicals I couldn't decipher (or pronounce).  From there Lulu Organics was born."

Borne by the waves, salt, roses, love...xoxo...Julie

For the last 20+ years I have been helping women look, feel and smell beautiful.

I make perfume because I love it.

I love the way it makes me feel when I put it on...Sexy, Free, Alive, Sassy, Alluring, Comforted, Happy.

It all began when I started getting an allowance when I was a kid.  My best friend and I would walk down to Salladays's and I would spend all my money on soaps, lotions and perfumes...I was 8.  I miss Salladay's, and I miss a time when two 8 year olds could walk somewhere by themselves!

When I was 18 I got a job at a perfume blending bar and all of my dreams were fulfilled.  Then I got fired.  Turns out I wasn't supposed to create things for other people, I had to go out on my own.  When I was 24 I opened a boutique called Aromatica.  I finally had my own perfume blending bar and no one could fire me!  Two stores and three product lines later and here I am, still making perfume.  Because I love it.

 Somewhere along the way I learned with 100% certainty that SELF LOVE is the way to absolute happiness.  If you are madly in love with yourself then you can do anything and be anything.  

And if one drop of perfume puts a smile on your face...causes you to hold your head a little higher...puts a slight twinkle in your eye...inspires you to put a little swing in your hips when you walk...Then I have done my job.

Rose-Marie Swift, Founder of rms beauty

After many years in the fashion and make-up industry, I've learned a lot about the impact of daily exposure to chemicals in beauty care products. I've seen what works and what doesn't live up to its promises. I see the results of taking a quick-fix approach to looking good. I know first-hand the price our health can pay in the pursuit of beauty. I realized that what women need is a cosmetics line that is as pure as possible, one that creates a solid foundation for anti-aging and long-term beauty.

RMS Beauty is dedicated to transforming the way women use makeup, and it's about more than simply using organic ingredients. In fact, that's only the first step in creating a product that's not only non-toxic, but that actually heals and nourishes skin. It all comes down to chemistry: when a raw material is processed for use in cosmetics or other beauty products, it typically undergoes a lengthy process. I was surprised to learn that the majority of ingredients used for natural cosmetics are refined, bleached, deodorized, clarified, fractionated and heated to high temperatures. But this means they are not pure natural ingredients anymore – they are now equivalent to man-made chemicals. Complicating matters more, the processes strip away almost all of the nutrients that make natural ingredients beneficial to skin. Today's cosmetics and skincare lines are full of mono-nutrients and mono-nutrients do not interact. Only real nutrients interact… anything alive interacts.

This is where RMS Beauty breaks away from the pack of natural cosmetics. RMS Beauty products are formulated with raw, food grade and organic ingredients in their natural state, allowing their living, healing attributes to penetrate and rejuvenate the skin. In their purest form, enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants and their healing properties remain fully intact, encouraging amazing potential for anti-aging effects. RMS Beauty has also taken extreme care in the use of minimal heat in the manufacturing process of this product in order to keep all nutrients and healing properties alive. All RMS Beauty products are free of harmful chemicals, synthetic preservatives, synthetic vitamins, and genetically altered ingredients (GMO) etc. RMS Beauty is full of healing nutrients – nutrients that work synergistically with the skin, and are in harmony with nature and our environment. Each ingredient in RMS Beauty is carefully chosen to create a dialogue with the skin. Your touch activates the life force of the product, and nutrients interact with skin to promote hydration, softness, and luminosity.

Have fun with RMS Beauty. Colors can be mixed together, creating a personalized palette to enhance every mood. Unrefined, organic, healing agents provide easy blending, even for those who feel intimidated by makeup. By incorporating RMS Beauty into your daily regime, you will experience a revolutionary simplicity that takes minutes to apply, but adds a wealth of vital nutrients to your skin.

And our concern for health and beauty extends far beyond us, to the very planet that supplied us with these healing ingredients. Packaging for RMS Beauty products is minimal, and all of it is biodegradable, recyclable or reusable.

The RMS Beauty line is about supporting your natural beauty and long-term health. It's about reviving your youthful glow and letting that shine through, rather than covering and concealing with layers of chemicals. The RMS Beauty line works. It's as simple as that.

This is makeup unlike any you have seen before. Consider it skin care with mineral color

The life force of the skin interacts with the life force of everything applied to it. Majority of cosmetics are dead. The chemicals they contain have no life force and therefore, cannot interact with the skin. It is the interaction - the synthesis of all ingredients, that creates a truly alive product, and truly alive skin! RMS beauty is about aliveness and pure, life force.

There is Beauty in Simplicity.

An inimitable style icon, Linda Rodin sees beauty in its simplest distillation. “I really don't spend too much time getting ready! I like to be out the door in no time.“ It’s this natural, devil-may-care brand of beauty that won her modeling jobs when she moved to Italy to study at age eighteen. That was in the Mod Sixties, when Rodin wowed all with her Twiggy eyelashes, over-the-knee boots, maxi coat, and five-inch skirt “That was more like a handkerchief.”

Returning to New York in the Seventies, Rodin ran a successful boutique, perhaps one of the first "concept" stores in New York's Soho. She had stints as a stylist at Henri Bendel in the Gerri Stutz days, and then as a fashion editor at Harper’s Bazaar. Eventually, she became a freelance stylist— acknowledged as one of the best in the business.

Rodin has dressed the most gorgeous and charismatic women in the world; from Laetitia Casta, Madonna and Halle Berry to supermodels Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima.

Despite access to ultra-exclusive skincare lines in this heady milieu, Rodin became disillusioned with their anti-aging claims and complicated regimens.

“What I longed for was something far simpler—products for the here-and-now, that caress the skin noticeably and without any delay. Nothing out there did quite that.” So she brought her style smarts, her instinct for beauty, and her demand for perfection to the skincare arena. After experimenting with essential oils in her bathroom for nearly two years, Rodin put the finishing touches on her first dream elixir, the original RODIN olio lusso face oil, in 2007. (The name—which translates as luxury oil —is in honor of the easygoing Italian beauty that has long inspired Linda’s own style). The models and makeup artists she worked with tried and loved it, and soon RODIN olio lusso was selling to a cult following at a few select stores. Magazine coverage and an international buzz followed.

As venues worldwide began selling RODIN olio lusso, customers began asking, is there more? Yes, the RODIN olio lusso collection is growing—each new item containing a similar, near-magical blend of essential oils, starting with a body oil, then a hair oil (a collaboration with renowned hair stylist Bob Recine), a lip balm, hand –body cream, perfume, scented candle, a facial cleansing powder, and now a quintet of luxury lipsticks.

It all began in 2009 with power-couple Dr. Simone Xavier and Rene Xavier Filho, a molecular bacteriologist and civil engineer, respectively. They launched Sigma with just one brush set that instantly captured a cult-following and sold out.

Since then, an impassioned, over 90% female team has joined together, developing new ways to transform your beauty routine.  An elegant expression of all of their passions, the Greek letter Σ ("Sigma") denotes a mathematical sum. Quality + Function + Innovation.

 

 

“New from Brazil!

The Brazilians know a thing or two about high-water booties (Gisele, Adriana, and Alessandra, we’re looking at you!), so we know we can trust the beauty brand that just came out with a new bum bum cream with the yummiest scent to boot! This cream is infused with cupuacu butter, acai and coconut oil, and guarana caffeine, all which smooth and firm up your buttocks. After a few uses, you just may find yourself shaking your bum bum in that bathing suit all day long! ” Sol de Janeiro’s Bum Bum Cream is an all over body cream inspired by Brazilian’s favorite body part, the bum bum."

In 1994, an eminent team was assembled, including independent leading research and practicing dermatologists throughout the United States. After years of disappointment from existing products that did not perform to expectation, Somme Institute® was created with the intention of making perfect skin an attainable goal.

Clinical Trials
In 1996, clinical trials began testing ingredients to see what delivered results to the skin and what didn't. Through the use of Ultra Violet (UV) photography, participants' skin surface and subsurface conditions became visible. These advanced photographs enabled researchers to witness and analyze damage beneath the skin's surface-damage that would later appear in the form of dryness, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. After over 10 years of testing, development and "tracking" more than 5,000 participants, Somme Institute® discovered and developed a Patented technology called Molecular Dispersion Technology 5 (MDT5™).

 

Benefits

MDT5™ allows full vitamin absorption by the skin to:
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Repair sun damage
  • Even out discoloration and brown spots
  • Treat moderate to severe acne as well as rosacea
  • Dramatically improve the skin's tone, texture and clarity
