Beauty brand (seed) debuts new lip oils
PRINCETON, N.J. — First, facial oils took the beauty industry by storm. Now, plant-based skin care brand (seed) is looking to rock the industry with its 100% plant-based lip oils.
“Like all of our products, the lip oils are infused with grape seed oil, which is packed with age-fighting antioxidants,” said (seed) co-founder Rebecca Gournay. “They instantly nourish and moisturize using only plant-derived ingredients.”
The new (seed) lip oils are paraben- and phthalate-free, as well as free of such known toxins and allergens as gluten, dairy and soy. Even the aromatherapy scents are courtesy of essential oils, rather than synthetic fragrance.
“Many times people who have sensitivities to what goes into their bodies also have sensitivities to what goes on their bodies,” Gournay said. “We want to make sure everyone can safely enjoy our products.”
The new lip oils are available in therapeutic and smoothing formulas, and retail for about $5 each.
Price Chopper revises, expands coupon policy
SCHNECTADY, N.Y. — Price Chopper Supermarkets, a Golub Corp. company, is revising and expanding its coupon policy in response to ever-evolving couponing trends.
The updated policy, which will go into effect in conjunction with the chain’s weekly ad on Sept. 14, includes changes and clarifications, such as:
- Price Chopper will match competitive paper coupons for store brands with its own Price Chopper brand products of the same size and weight (Price Chopper has been matching paper coupons for store brands for several months now, but given their relative newness to the marketplace, they were not included in the last iteration of our coupon policy.)
- Price Chopper has expanded its AdvantEdge e-coupon offerings, which can be loaded to a customer’s AdvantEdge card through pricechopper.com or the Price Chopper mobile app
- Price Chopper will accept one paper competitor “dollars off a category” coupon from other supermarkets and mass retailers, the value of which may not exceed 50% of the order (Price Chopper has been matching such paper competitor “dollars off a category” coupons for several months now, but given their relative newness to the marketplace, they were not included in the last version of the company’s coupon policy.)
“This newest iteration of our coupon policy builds on an already robust savings platform that honors double coupons up to and including 99 cents, matches competitors’ coupons and offers cumulative fuel and bonus fuel rewards based on whole order and single item purchases. Some of the revisions formalize the honoring of coupons we’ve been accepting for some time and others help to clarify our policies for ease of use,” said Mona Golub, Price Chopper’s VP of public relations and consumer services. “And, the addition of store brand product coupons in the new policy simply gives customers the opportunity to save more money while enjoying the added value of our high quality Price Chopper brand.”
