Citroen & Benefit Cosmetics Create DS3 By Benefit

Their vision is to offer women a complete, affordable cosmetics line that gives them a finished, glamorous look, and also fits the lifestyle of living in Lake Tahoe. These products are made with the highest quality ingredients that create a light and natural feeling and provide a flawless, long-lasting look that is compatible with our mountain climate. For instance, the Brightening Day Protection, a broad spectrum SPF 50 lotion, is great for skiing, hiking, kayaking, and other activities. It is a non greasy, fast absorbing sun protector that shields against UV aggressors with a combination of sunscreens and a potent antioxidant to help prevent premature aging. Our cosmetics have ingredients such as Vitamins C and E, Green Tea, and Keratin. The foundations have a pro barrier complex to help protect and repair skin. These cosmetics are like skin care for your face, Marianna says. We have found that our Lake Tahoe clients need affordable cosmetics that work in the outdoor environment. Suzette understands the travelers needs too: We want to accommodate our visiting clients with special products to use, not only during their visit to Lake Tahoe, but to take home with them. This is a reminder of how important it is to take care of our skin while enjoying the outdoors wherever we go. Marianna Lucido, a longtime Lake Tahoe resident, is a certified cosmetologist and makeup artist and an award winning hair designer.

Probst makes a convincing argument, so for my makeup experiment, I opted to try items from Menaji (the brand takes its name from Scandinavian words for man and power). Like others in this burgeoning industry, Menaji has seen its sales grow by as much as 70% in the past couple of years, according to Probst. A makeup artist by trade, Probst got the idea for the company when an attorney asked her for a little pretrial grooming to help him win over a jury. I thought, Why couldnt I send him somewhere to buy some products? she says. I didnt have quite the same agenda meaning Im not out to impress anyone. OK, thats what I like to tell myself. But the truth of the matter is that even a pudgy, 49-year-old journalist http://www.youtube.com/arganellebeauty doesnt like seeing those bags under his eyes. And for as long as I can remember, Ive had really oily skin. I used to think my shine looked OK until I started doing occasional TV and video assignments.

Mid Cap Losers – Ulta Salon Cosmetics (ULTA), Big Lots (BIG), American Eagle Outfitters (AEO)

Cytotoxic studies have revealed that these lipid-based nanoparticles are well tolerated by cell cultures, with pre-clinical in-vivo trials showing promising results (no immunogenicity, absent toxicity, and great targeting). Capsum Cosmetics are now using this technology for their NeoGouttesTM nano-emulsions used to vectorize an active agent for delivery into specific cells in humans. The system is suitable for lipophilic active ingredients for targeting keratinocytes, fibroblasts and melanocytes from pigmented human epidermis. The aim is to deliver the active drug into the human cell for maximum effect. Healthcare is the primary area where Lipidots can have a significant impact. Lipidots were conceived as a system to encapsulate lipophilic dyes for fluorescent imaging. Leti sees the primary applications for this technology as being in vivo imaging and in vitro diagnosis, so Lipidots potential to improve healthcare is exciting. We believe the technology will help doctors perform biopsies that more accurately identify potentially cancerous areas, and also will improve targeted drug delivery. Other potential uses include delivering active ingredients that address nano-drug specifications, such as anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and photosensitizer requirements.” – Gilles Marchand – Lab Manager at CEA-Leti. The application of Lipidots to design and develop cosmetic products for more efficient transportation of these agents into the cells will set a new standard for the way this industry – one of the leading platforms in the current business sector – will transform the way these products are better applied for maximum customer satisfaction. Cosmetic application is just one of the major investments for Lipidots; this innovative technology transfer method is becoming a key component to boosting pre-clinical development of LipImage 851TM, a liver cancer detection system.

To further expand the domestic halal cosmetics industry, Syed Hussein said said the chamber has proposed to the Taiwanese to convene a special session to forge cooperation between Malaysia and Taiwanese cosmetics producers. Pursuant to the conference, Syed Hussein urged cosmetics entrepreneurs to participate in a seminar which will discuss about the halal cosmetics industry.
