Creme of Nature with Argan Oil product line expands
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Ethnic hair care brand Creme of Nature has added the Creme of Nature with Argan Oil no-lye relaxer to its portfolio of argan oil hair care products.
The product is available at mass-market retailers and beauty supply stores in October, and it joins the five Creme of Nature with Argan Oil moisture-enriched shine products that debuted earlier this summer.
The relaxer system is infused with nutrient-rich certified organic argan oil from Morocco with advanced straightening performance. Packaged in new, Moroccan-themed kits, the relaxer will be available in regular and super strengths to meet the needs of varying hair textures.
The creamy emollient formula is designed to be easy to mix and apply.

In addition to these two products, the kit also will include a neutralizing shampoo and step-by-step directions for application.
"The Creme of Nature with Argan Oil relaxer incorporates the healing, moisturizing and conditioning properties of argan oil to offer a relaxer to consumers that is one-of-a-kind, yet affordable," stated Colomer USA multicultural VP marketing Shawn Tollerson. "We have received a great response from consumers with the launch of argan oil shine hair care products. So now, women who relax their hair can enjoy the benefits of argan oil during this process, from start to finish."
The Skin Cancer Foundation salutes two executives at gala
NEW YORK The Skin Cancer Foundation held its annual Skin Sense Award Gala on Oct. 12, honoring Al Robertson, general manager and CMO of Energizer Personal Care, and Gabriel Tanbourgi, president of BASF Care Chemicals, for their leadership roles in promoting skin health.
The event, held at the Pierre Hotel in New York, attracted roughly 350 people.
“The Skin Sense Award Gala is always a very special night for the foundation, and we deeply appreciate everyone’s support in making the evening a success,” stated Perry Robins, president of The Skin Cancer Foundation. “We know that people are well-aware of the dangers of the sun. However, our research tells us that most people still resist making sun protection a part of their lifestyle. Clearly, there is much work to be done, which is why the Gala is so important.”
Showing their support for the cause were actors Kevin Navayne of “CSI: New York” and Tony Sirico, formerly of “The Sopranos,” and an array of notable guests from the fashion, music, food and reality TV industries. Attendees included acclaimed food critic Gael Greene, musicians Sylvia Tosun and Matt White and fashion insiders Richie Rich and Nole Marin.
Sam Champion, weather anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” hosted the night’s festivities. Champion has battled skin cancer and has done much to raise awareness about the disease.
The program also included a special performance by piano iconoclast ELEW, known for his melding of ragtime, rock and pop, called rockjazz. For the first time, the Gala included an exclusive after party.
