Hello oral care graces Times Square via People magazine partnership
NEW YORK — Hello oral care has partnered with People magazine to bring its “Sexiest Man Alive” issue to life through an interactive activation in Times Square.
On Wednesday, tourists and New Yorkers who are visiting the “Crossroads of the World” are not only able to stop by the “Sexiest Man Alive” area to sample Hello products, but they also can get their picture on one of the largest Time Square billboards. All visitors who stop by and test out Hello will be able to freshen-up before having their “cover shot” displayed on a billboard next to Adam Levine — the “Sexiest Man Alive.”
This partnership is yet another display of how brands are finding unique ways to engage consumers, sample products and reach a mass audience.

Organix-South develops new Purifying Neem Facial Mask
BOWLING GREEN, Fla. — Organix-South has announced the introduction of TheraNeem Naturals Purifying Neem Facial Mask, which has the triple-power of neem leaf, oil and bark to detoxify, clarify and purify the face and neck.
This mask combines French green, bentonite and kaolin clays to cleanse and exfoliate the skin, along with botanicals that support and nourish the dermis. The product is paraben free and gluten free.
“Neem acts as a natural drawing poultice for impurities. Neem’s gentle astringent qualities help reduce the appearance of pores and tighten the skin. This mask can be used not only on the face, but the neck, throat and any other areas that may need purifying. I recommend using weekly or as needed, or utilize as a spot treatment when challenges occur,” Autumn Blum, Organix-South founder and formulating chemist said.
Purifying Mask contains TheraNeem Naturals exclusive adaptogen blend, containing antioxidant-rich botanicals such as holy basil, ashwagndha and turmeric. In skin care, adaptogens help the skin respond to the effects of external stressors, keeping the skin looking healthy and vibrant, the manufacturer stated.
“In addition, this mask has been formulated with certified organic supercritical extracts of neem leaf and bark to provide the kind of strength that women expect from a mask treatment,” Autumn added.
Based in central Florida, Organix-South, a division of Nutraceutical Corp., offers a range of products including the brands TheraNeem Naturals and Naked Organix.
