Imported from Australia, these organic cosmetics save you from applying poison to your lips

THE AVERAGE woman who wears lipstick will end up “eating” around three kilograms of it in her lifetime. Applying talc once a week increases the risk of ovarian cancer by 36 per cent. Your skin doesn’t just protect; it absorbs – soaking in as much as 60 per cent of the substances applied to it. So you need to be careful about what’s applied.

Now Thai firm Trapa has imported from Australia a line of products called Zuii Organic Cosmetics that was recently unveiled at Siam Paragon.

The variety and colours are comparable to any brand of cosmetics, but the Zuii range is free of the chemicals, parabens (preservatives), talcum and isopropyl alcohol typically found in cosmetics.

TMF Cosmetics and Zuii Organic director Rose Beesey, who was in Bangkok for the launch, founded the company in 1980 as a manufacturer of those typical cosmetics, but then she had a change of heart. She embraced nature and began using with not just natural ingredients but also “certified organic” ingredients. The Zuii line took seven years to develop and hit the market in 2008.

“I found that the world of cosmetics needed an option,” Beesey said. “Consumers are more health-conscious now in terms of what we wear and what we eat, and no one wants to harm the environment. Zuii is constantly developing with the aim of seeing what we can do to make a difference.

“When I used to create traditional cosmetics, I used synthetics such as parabens and petrochemicals, not natural ingredients, but all the research showed that these are not good for the health. So I did my own research on natural ingredients to see if I could develop a natural range of coloured cosmetics that could really be certified organic, using the purest natural ingredients, like waxes and essential oils.”

Zuii is certified as an organic brand, all the products being made from the petals of roses, jasmine and camomile as well as floral oils.

“Our formula gives a more natural finish rather than a flat finish, and it’s also nourishing to the skin, rather than causing problems,” Beesey said. “So it’s much like a nutrient skincare line, but it’s a cosmetic line, so it’s very unique. We don’t use talc because it creates allergies. The flower petals give the skin a healthy glow. The skin pores aren’t blocked. Even people with damaged skin can use Zuii.”

The colour range is remarkably extensive given the organic base. “The market demands bright, fun colours. At Zuii we want to serve both the customers and the market and also offer a fun line – without doing any harm. Zuii can be positioned at the top in the market like any traditional cosmetic brand and the customer can chose.”

Beesey said she regards her natural ingredients as people – “because they sometimes don’t like each other”.

“Sometimes you might have a beautiful type of oil, but it might not ‘like’ another type of oil. Each colour, too, is very much its own person, very unique.

“But I think this makes it fun for the consumer, because they can get different effects. One lipstick is different from another, even if they both have the same formula. The colour of lipsticks comes from the minerals, and different blends give different shades.”

Lipstick, she noted, needs staying power, or, as she put it, “stain power”.

“The waxes and oils we use in the lipstick help stain the lips while also moisturising, whereas synthetic ingredients will dry out the lips. The whole idea of the line is to preserve, using synergy, like essential oil looking after itself.”

Schwarzkopf’s popular ASK Academy goes digital with three new apps

FEW OF us associate the Internet with our hair stylists yet help in finding gorgeous hair colours and styles to suit is today just a click away for the hairdresser thanks to three new applications recently introduced by the Schwarzkopf ASK Academy – the Hair Expert, Essential looks and House of Colour Apps.

The established brand has been in Thailand for more than four decades and with more than 600 staff here, considers the kingdom the logistics hub for its beauty care line. It also has been running its Schwarzkopf ASK Academy here for the last 15 years and, according to Tim Petzinna, president of Henkel Thailand, trains more than 2,000 hair stylists every year.

“We provide hairdressers not only with the technical skills but also the business skills they need for professional success. Each salon is a little company itself,” he explains.

“ASK stands for Attitude, Skills, and Knowledge or, as we often say, for heart, hands, and head. Attitude comes from the heart, you need good skills and that’s more hands on, and being successful comes through knowledge or what’s in the head. We offer hairdressers the most convenient, inspiring, and motivational education in town with face-to-face training, seminars, in-salon experience and coaching. And now we’ve expanded those services to encompass online, mobile, and e-learning.”

The new module “Hair Expert” application by Schwarzkopf Professional offers specialised solutions for every client’s unique set of needs and wishes and is considered a holistic tool that supports hairdressers day-to-day within the salon. There are four functions. The Expert Diagnosis helps identify individual hair profiles and recommends home regimes. The Client Database focuses on hairdressers and their clients and connects them through more than just business. Cloud-based synchronisation helps them to keep track of their mutual history and improves the consultation process. The Brands and Technologies instruction improves expertise through a detailed overview, and the Therapies support hairdressers’ services with tailor-made therapies and ideas to make their clients’ salon experience special.

The “Essential Looks app” is like an exclusive portal to the latest trends at the fashion weeks of New York, London, Milan and Paris and brings them straight to a mobile device or iPad. The features includes all the detailed information on products and services – in the form of images, text and video content – that are needed to create these amazing looks.

The House of Colour app is a multi-functional assistant developed by colourists for colourists. It also has four functions including creating colour formulas based on clients’ profiles, individual needs and desires. The easy-to-use Client Management; stores information and colour history and allows photos to be added.

“We develop the essential looks internally for two collections a year then inform our business partners and hairdressers. As a market leader in colouring, we are very proud of our premium quality, which has earned us a great reputation. That ensures we have a new module every year, says Petzinna.

There is no charge for the ASK Academy nor for its applications, with hairdressers and salons treated as business partners.

Less is beautiful: cosmetic trends for 2016

Beauty, like fashion, is subject to trends. What’s “hot” changes constantly, as do the procedures in which consumers are interested.

Beauty, like fashion, is subject to trends. What’s “hot” changes constantly, as do the procedures in which consumers are interested. Over the past few years, the demand for minimal or non-invasive procedures has increased.

This trend among people |who want to gain a quiet |confidence is still going strong despite the economic |downturn.

These people are not going under the knife to have a full facelift. Instead, they believe that less invasive cosmetic procedures will make them look a little bit better, less tired, more energetic and younger. Let’s look at what’s new for the upcoming year and which existing non-invasive procedures will continue to gain in popularity.

Non-surgical facelifts – Ever notice how small the faces of female superstars faces are? That’s because an adorably little oval face with a V-shaped chin is deemed beautiful.

To achieve this look, a non-surgical procedure like Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound energy to tighten jowls as well as lift cheeks and brow, is worth a try. Another procedure, Thermage, uses radio frequency energy for similar results.

These are ideal procedures for people who want a V-shaped face and also for those in their 30s who are starting to see |some skin laxity. Skin will |tighten up within a month and continue to firm over the next few months.

Non-surgical facial slimming – Another super popular non-surgical procedure for achieving a V-shaped face is Botulinum Toxin injection, which offers a quick and painless option for a more streamlined chin.

Overly enlarged chewing muscles at the angle of the jaw are a common cause of a wide squarish jaw line. By reducing these bulky muscles, the botulinum toxin injection can deliver jaw-dropping facial slimming results without the knife, and has little to no downtime.

Botulinum toxin or botox is also the most popular procedure used to treat wrinkles in the upper face such as frown lines and crow’s feet as well as for brow and eye lift. For the lower face, fillers are highly effective in treating such signs of ageing as deep lines around the mouth and nose, lost volume and thinning lips.

These minimally invasive or non-invasive alternatives will remain a major trend in 2016 because they usually result in less pain, less scarring, and a quick recovery but make a difference in the patient’s |self-confidence.

Translation? Bye bye shyness, hello beautiful. Stay tuned!

The creme that launched a thousand ships

Sisley’s top-line Supremya Baume might set you back Bt23,000 but it’s worth every satang. Here’s why

THE NIGHT is the best time to repair damage inflicted on the skin during the day and prepare it to fight the stress it will be confronted with again the following day. True beauty, however, comes at a price as the French skincare brand Sisley has underlined with the launch of its new Supremya Baume, an exceptional anti-ageing treatment that carries a massive Bt23,000 tag for just 50 millilitres.

Nicolas Chesnier, Sisley’s regional managing director for Asia-Pacific, who flew to Bangkok for the launch, says the latest addition to the pricey Supremya line is well worth the outlay, pointing to the success of earlier products in the range, which was first introduced to the public in 2009.

“The Baume has new functions in addition to anti-ageing and repair at night, and we have reinforced the barrier function of the skin thus keeping in the intense nourishment and reinforcing protection. There is no single active ingredient but the product works well with the formulation of more than 30 botanicals and we promise a result that’s well worth the price,” he adds.

“Customers can use the Supremya Baume alone after cleansing and need not apply other creams, except for perhaps around the eyes, which is a very specific area.”

The supreme anti-ageing night skin care has been specially developed to meet the specific needs of naturally dry to very dry skin dried out by environmental factors and comes in a deliciously smoothing, easily applied, rich and firm cream texture. At the heart of this formula is Sisley’s patented Phyto-Complex LC12 (12-hour Longevity Concentrate): a powerful combination of four plant-based active ingredients, which works at night – a key moment for cellular regeneration – to offer visible rejuvenation.

Supremya Baume contains an intensive nourishing complex of hazelnut oil, kokum butter and macadamia oil, allowing for deep lipid-replenishing action.

“Phyto-complex LC12, has the capacity to increase the life of the cell. We extend and give it more time, which is very valuable to repair. That’s why it is designed to work at night. But simply giving more time is not enough, so we offer the tools for a proper repair of the skin and this shows a stronger improvement on all signs of ageing. This is a very innovative concept and was already very advanced when we launched the Supremya at Night line in 2009. Supremya Baume nourishes, repairs and restructures, which is totally new,” he says.

Chesnier shrugs off criticisms that the product is perhaps too expensive, pointing out that Sisley is not the only brand to charge for quality.

He is, of course, correct. World-renowned skincare brand La Mer, for example, which recently celebrated its legendary Creme de la Mer with the introduction of the limited edition Amber Heritage Creme de la Mer, set the price at Bt87,000 for a 500ml jar with the standard 60ml cr

 

Getting rid of redness

A new product from Eucerin is especially designed to help women with Hypersensitive skin

THAILAND’S WINTER is on its way and despite the tropical climate, the cooler, drier air can be a major problem for anyone with sensitive skin.

A recent study by Eucerin revealed that 90 per cent of Asian women suffer from sensitive skin to a greater or lesser degree, with their skin easily irritated by chemicals contained in cosmetics and nourishment products, as well as by pollution and other factors.

Changing cosmetic brands or skincare products does not alleviate the problem as their skin continues to be as sensitive as before. To make matters worse, the constant change leads women to have what is called “hypersensitive skin”, a condition when only a small touch of dust or chemicals causes irritation. And with the effects of sensitive skin often so visible that no concealer can hide them, many women lose confidence in the way they look.

“A lot of people do not know that sensitive skin can easily develop into hypersensitive skin, due to the fact that it is harmed continually until it becomes damaged at the molecular level,” says Associate Professor Noppadol Noppakun of Chulalongkorn University and director of the Dermatological Society of Thailand.

“When your skin is weak due to previous unhealthy practices, external factors from pollution and sunlight to chemicals can and will easily harm your skin. It can worsen your skin by agitating the sensitive areas.”

Dr Poohglin Tresukosol of the Institute of Dermatology confirms that patients who are diagnosed with sensitive skin usually have allergies to the fragrance or preservatives in cosmetic products – including shower gels – but are not aware of these until they break out in a rash.

“Most go from brand to brand hoping they will find a product that doesn’t hurt their skin. When this fails, they consult a dermatologist. We can provide treatment but it takes a long time and we can only recommend they use skincare products or moisturisers containing no fragrances or preservatives.”

One of these is the new Eucerin Ultra Sensitive range, which is especially formulated for hypersensitive skin.

“We are really proud of this product, which is the result of long and extensive research,” says Kai-Boris Bendix, managing director of Beiersdorf.

Eucerin’s latest SymSitive innovation claims to act instantly on irritated skin, helping the skin stay protected from harm, and slowing down its reaction to sunlight, pollution and other harmful factors. Arginine acts as helper in adding moisture while making the skin soft and safeguarding the skin from returning to its past sensitive or irritated condition. For its part, Licochalcone A is an anti-oxidant that helps lessen irritation on the surface level. Red marks will be reduced, promoting a better chance of glowing skin.

– For every purchase of Eucerin Ultra Sensitive at Eucerin counters and Boots, Bt100 will be donated to the Dermatolo-gical Society of Thailand.

Miu Miu’s debut fragrance arrives in Bangkok

LEADING Italian brand Miu Miu joins other top designer labels on the fragrance market with the launch of its namesake perfume by Daniela Roche Andrier, who is known for her creations for the house of Prada, Miu Miu’s big sister.

A master of the counterintuitive, designer Miuccia Prada mixes the common and the ultra-refined to create something surprising and knowing yet never contrived. Drawing on Prada’s inspiration, Andrier has created a study in contrasts. She starts with an elegant, sensual lily of the valley, real jasmine, real rose absolute then adds synthetic green notes. The soft and fresh scent is set against the deep wood and pepper tone of akigalawood, an extract of patchouli. The akigalawood adds a brooding mystery to the subtle floral sparkle and the surprising combination feels natural and timeless. The effect created by the multi-faceted process is utterly contemporary and the effect is both scintillating and a little defiant – very Miu Miu.

Beyond that, the story of Miu Miu fragrance is being portrayed by Stacy Martin, a talented actress with a playful intelligence that is the essence of the brand. Her style is the embodiment of the perfume’s qualities, at once delicate and forceful, refined and raw, demure and outrageous.

Like the fragrance itself, the bottle is reminiscent of Miu Miu’s signature matelasse and comes with a white matte collar that’s simultaneously traditional and pop. The translucent red disk gives a playful quality with the warm tone complementing the cool of the bottle. The overall effect is youthful and feminine but also that of a slightly exaggerated elegance; a vaguely remembered dream re-rendered in vivid Technicolor.

– Miu Miu Eau De Parfum this month exclusively at Siam Paragon Department Store and Emporium Department Store and in November at Central Chidlom and Miu Miu Boutiques. It comes in three sizes: 30 ml (Bt3,100), 50ml (Bt4,000) |and 75ml (Bt4,900).

Herbs and flowers cultivated according to the cycle of the moon allow Australian skincare brand Jurlique to make the very most of nature

Founded in 1985, leading Australian skincare brand Jurlique has a very simple philosophy: Nature is the answer. A pioneer in organic lotions, creams and serums, its mission is to bring to vitality and youthfulness to the skin of every woman.

Emmanuel Ruelland, managing director for the brand’s international and Hong Kong division, stopped off in Bangkok recently to celebrate Jurlique’s 30th anniversary and launch three new products to complete the Nutri-Define ritual: Eye Contour Balm, Foaming Cleanser, and Essential Conditioning Lotion.

“Our aim is to create the purest, most effective skin care on Earth and in this we are inspired by the well-being of our customers. At Jurlique, we control everything from the seeds to the cultivation through to the final product. Our founders, Dr Jurgen and Ulrike Klein had searched long and hard for a place where they could realise their dreams and when they arrived in the unspoiled Adelaide Hills in South Australia, they knew they had found Jurlique’s natural home,” Ruelland explains.

“Bio-dynamic is how we describe the step beyond organic. We grow all our own herbs and flowers at the farm in an organic way without pesticides and in relation to the cycle of the moon as this has an important effect on the vitality of the plant. We follow the moon calendar in our farming, planting the seeds at low tide and harvesting at the best time of the cycle when the vitality of the plant is at its maximum. This is one of the principles of the bio-dynamic method. And we use worms as a natural rich fertiliser,” he says.

“We’ve compared the vitality and potency of the plants we grow using the bio-dynamic method to regular plants. We have found some very interesting results and we are working to officially prove them as the system requires some accreditation. The farm is a very strong aspect of the brand.”

Jurlique is also credited with developing the bio-intrinsic method of extraction. “This is an important step and is inspired from the ancient Egyptian perfume methodology. It is essentially a three-step process. We first distill the plant, then burn and husk the minerals before putting the husks back in the soil to make it rich. The method makes our plants much more potent and while the extraction only takes a few days, the entire process is spread over years.”

The brand’s new Nutri-Define line boasts a natural liposome technology called Biosome that’s made from a perfectly harmonised combination of natural active ingredients, each demonstrating superior anti-ageing and skin wellness efficacy.

“We drew on our decades of experience in biodynamic farming to select the five key anti-ageing botanicals that drive the entire Nutri-Define range, namely horseradish, rosemary, peppermint, mulberry and glycogen. And following months of testing, our scientists developed a new, naturally derived liposome that would safely deliver this luscious blend to the skin,” he adds.

The range is free from petrochemicals, parabens, silicones, artificial colours and fragrances. It’s available at Jurlique stores and online at http://www.Jurlique.com.au.

 

Elca thinks pink to help save lives

Part of the profits from an array of beauty products are this month going to the battle against breast cancer

WITH Breast Cancer Awareness Month underway, Elca (Thailand) is devoting to the cause part of the proceeds from sales of its beauty brands Aveda, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Estee Lauder, La Mer, Lab Series and Origins.

And managing director Ampornpim Vajrabhaya recently hosted an event aimed at encouraging healthy diet and exercise at which the firm donated Bt1.5 million for research and treatment to the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation and the National Cancer Institute.

Foundation chairman Associate Professor Dr Kris Chatamra and institute director Dr Weerawut Imsamran joined a slew of celebrities at the event, which had as its theme “We Dance Together”, since dancing is also a good way to keep healthy.

Elca is part of the Estee Lauder Group, which initiated the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign in 1996 in honour of its late founder, Evelyn Lauder, co-creator of the Pink Ribbon driver and the woman who established the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The campaigns now extend to more than 70 countries, encouraging men as well as women to be alert to signs of the disease and offering aid when it strikes. In two decades it has helped save millions of lives and raised more than US$58 million (Bt2.1 billion) for research, education and medical services.

Entertainers and other celebrities wore pink shirts and pink shoes for a “Body Combat Dance” at the Bangkok event, led by Yupapak Vajrabhaya, Kornkanok Yongsakul and Anorma Saransikarin. There was a mini-concert by Hun The Star and Max The Voice that lent a fun vibe to the “workout”.

Meanwhile everyone is invited to dress in pink and post their pictures on the social media using the hashtag “#BCAstrength”.

“This year we want to focus on the importance of exercise,” Ampornpim announced. “We want to encourage men and women to take care of themselves by exercising regularly in order to prevent illness.”

While Jo Malone London is donating Bt50,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in Thailand, the Elca (Thailand) beauty brands are sharing their profits as follows:

AVEDA: $318,000 from sales of BCA Hand Relief Moisturising Creme Limited Edition (Bt1,200);

BOBBI BROWN: Special pink blush set (Bt2,250);

CLINIQUE: Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+200ml limited edition comes with a pink-ribbon pin (Bt1,950); Limited Edition Cheek Pop (Bt900);

LA MER: Lip Balm (9g for Bt2,650);

ESTEE LAUDER: Resilience Lift Night Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme with pink-ribbon bracelet (Bt4,200); 20 per cent of the suggested retail price goes to the BCRF;

EVELYN LAUDER: Elizabeth Hurley Dream Pink Collection in a pink bag (Bt1,600);

LAB SERIES: Age Rescue and Face Lotion plus Ginseng (50ml for Bt2,550);

Temperature cools, hair heats up

Eco-brand Aveda says now is the time to bring on the colours, and even its wildest hues are as natural as can be

AS THE WORLD gets paler and greyer this autumn and winter, you should consider adding extra colour to your hair, says Ian Michael Black, “technical director” at the US-based beauty-product firm Aveda. He and his team were in Bangkok last week to suggest not only more natural earth tones but also a rainbow of pastels.

Aveda’s 2015 Full Spectrum Hair Colour offerings cover just about every style and hue you can imagine, from straight cuts to defined and short fringes, centre parted, side parted, bobbed, |curled, frizzy, pigtails, plaits, afros and ringlets through blue, yellow, platinum and pink.

Black was quick to point out that Thai women are lucky to have such beautiful skin tones, easily matched to any hair colour. The tip to choosing the right shade, he said, is to dab a little on the forehead to see how it looks on your skin and if it goes with your eye colour.

Black unveiled the latest collection, “Sublime Spirit”, which draws its influences from the way people had their hair styled – and coloured – in portraits down through different periods in history. Those looks have been updated in this collection.

Picture, for example, a woman of bygone times wearing a hair net. The netting creates its own texture in the hair. “We’ve reinterpreted that to make the look modern and relevant,” said Black, who’s known as a true innovator in hair-colouring techniques.

“We have colours that are more ‘commercial’ for everyday hairstyling, but also looks that are much more inspirational,” he said. “It’s always important to show people something to inspire and excite them about how they might colour their hair – colours they rarely see in hair, something unexpected.

“Aveda is an eco-brand, so people think it’s all going to be brown and boring, but we’re actually very much a fashion brand, full of colour. And the most important thing is being confident in your look. What’s most fashionable is looking |good!”

Black said the predominant trend for the coming cool season leans to subdued, even greyish tones, but he notes that not everyone will abide by that. “There are always specific trends in fashion, but that doesn’t mean that everything else is unfashionable. You should only follow a trend if it looks good on you.”

Aveda’s Full Spectrum is like an artist’s palette, he said – different shades to suit every mood and occasion.

“The idea is that, if you come to the salon and get your hair dyed, you won’t have exactly the same colour as everybody else. We can tailor it just for you, as though you’re the only person in the world. And it’s more fun for me as a hairdresser to use a little bit more brain and really enjoy an artistic colour palette.

If a client says, ‘I want a little bit more red,’ I say, ‘I can do a something in between the red shades.’ There’s no limit to what I can do.”

With various hues to choose among, hair is now an “accessory” in itself, another way of expressing yourself in creative and fashionable ways. Aveda’s permanent colours come in endless choices, from outrageous to purely natural. Regardless, the ingredients in its fade-resistant formulas are almost entirely natural, guarding against damage. It primarily uses the oils of sunflower, castor and jojoba.

And the ammonia-free “demi-permanent” hair colour is even gentler to the follicles, from a formula that’s 99 per cent natural. It actually improves the condition of damaged hair. The beautiful, rich shade lasts up to eight weeks before gradually fading – the perfect gloss.

Aveda’s “enlightener blonding” service even adds the aromas of rose, lemon, peppermint and other plants. It’s all thanks to organic farming, products from which are utilised at Aveda’s laboratory on a registered wildlife habitat in Blaine, Minnesota.

Babassu oil, as an example, comes from nuts gathered by the women of Maranhao, Brazil, whose salaries support their families and strengthening their communities. Aveda also helps protect the rainforest ecosystem as a shield against climate change, using only recycled fibre, and it’s America’s first such company to rely completely on wind power in its production.
