New Lumene Sensitive Touch 5 Min SOS cream to hit CVS shelves in October
NEW YORK — Lumene, a beauty brand from Finland that came to the U.S. beauty market in 2003 through an exclusive deal with CVS/pharmacy, has announced that its new Sensitive Touch 5 Min SOS cream will be available at CVS/pharmacy in October.
Developed in cooperation with the Finnish Allergy and Asthma Federation, the cream is designed to heal rough, irritated skin and provide immediate relief. The cream helps to restore the skin’s wellbeing in five minutes with skin-calming technology that moisturizes and conditions the skin to relieve irritation and discomfort, the company stated. With continued use, the skin’s tolerance toward external irritants is expected to improve over time. The cream also reduces the redness and irritation associated with sunburn and is ideal for climates with rapidly changing weather conditions.
It is infused with organic linen seed extract to soothe and strengthen the skin, protecting it against external irritants. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and its natural polysaccharides form a microfilm on the skin’s surface to help prevent the penetration of allergens, so skin is less irritated. It is alcohol-free, colorant-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free and silicone-free.
Lumene Sensitive Touch 5 Min SOS cream has a suggested retail price of $19.99.
Alba Botanica to launch reformulated Hawaiian Hair Care collection
MELVILLE, N.Y. — Alba Botanica, a Hain Celestial Group brand, is launching in October its new and improved Alba Botanica Hawaiian Hair Care collection.
The shampoos and conditioners have been reformulated to address six specific hair concerns: dry, brittle, frizz, fly-aways, dull, limp locks and everything in between. The formulas are infused with such tropical ingredients as papaya, macadamia nut oil, jojoba, awapuhi and panthenol to hydrate, strengthen and protect tresses.
Made with 100% vegetarian ingredients, Alba Botanica Natural Hawaiian Hair Care products are free of artificial colors, sulfates, parabens and phthalates and are not tested on animals.
The collection, priced at $10.50 each, includes:
Colorific Plumeria Natural Hawaiian shampoo and conditioner: Vitamin-rich plumeria, pineapple and papaya nourish the hair cuticle, while tropical oils of jojoba, kukui and macadamia replenish moisture. Free of color-stripping sulfates and drying salts, color stays vibrant and hair feels naturally healthy.
Body Builder Mango Natural Hawaiian shampoo and conditioner: Exotic extracts and weightless botanical oils nourish even over-processed hair without heaviness. The result is boosted volume and beautiful bounce.
Drink It Up Coconut Milk Natural Hawaiian shampoo and conditioner: High in fatty acids and protein, coconut milk seals in moisture to strengthen the cuticle and reduce breakage and split ends. Aloe, calendula and tropical oils nourish and protect from daily stress and heat styling.
So Smooth Gardenia Natural Hawaiian shampoo and conditioner: Gardenia extract, soy protein and light tropical oils calm the cuticle and protect against humidity for frizz control that gives a sleek polished look with no oily residue.
Gloss Boss Honeydew Natural Hawaiian shampoo and conditioner: Honeydew extract, awapuhi and pineapple nourish and revive hair. Hydrolyzed proteins, jojoba oil and panthenol bind the hair cuticle for a high-gloss shine.
