TRESemme launches new products for 2008
MELROSE PARK, Ill. Alberto-Culver’s TRESemme brand has announced the launch of several new products for 2008.
TRESemme is extending its Flawless Curls line with three new curl styling items.
- Curl Reactivation Styling Mist, which rejuvenates and springs drooping curls back to life.
- Curl Hydration Lotion Creme, a moisturizing, leave-in creme that hydrates hair and prepares it for curling.
- Curl Definition Jelly, a lightweight, pliable jelly that both adds shine and creates strong curl definition.
In addition to these styling items, a Curl Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner will be added to the line in 32-ounce sizes. All five items will start shipping in January, with a television campaign to begin in March.
In 2007, TRESemme launched its Thermal Creations Styling line. Based on the fact that 74 percent of women use a blower dryer, and 22 percent of women use a flat iron regularly, TRESemme stated that it is adding to the line Thermal Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner for heat damaged hair. These items are 25 ounces, but will have the same height profile and pricing as the 32-ounce shampoos and conditioners. Items will ship in January, with a television campaign beginning April.
Targeting Hispanic consumers, the brand will ship in January its Proteccion Caida Shampoo and Conditioner. Proteccion Caida is fortified with multivitamins and protein to make hair 80 percent stronger after one use, with seven times less hair loss, according to the company.
Mineralogie adopts eco-friendly practices
DALLAS Mineral-based cosmetics company Mineralogie is going green with new biodegradable packaging, rotating “work from home” hours and other eco-friendly practices.
“It’s essential for our industry and others to embrace eco-friendly solutions, and we feel that our healthy approach to cosmetics, combined with our corporate responsibility create a beautiful company,” stated Mary Van, owner.
The company has created new biodegradable packaging for its entire line. By 2008, its packaging will utilize 100 percent organic and/or recycled materials. Some of the packaging is made from corn, other boxes and product wraps are made from recycled papers that come from sustainable tree farms.
Mineralogie utilizes recycled packaging and boxes for shipments whenever possible, as well as milo grain biodegradable peanuts.
In addition, the company rotates “work from home” hours for employees to reduce car emissions. To reduce air pollution, the company has switched to Green Mountain Energy as its electricity provider. It buys recycled papers and reuses scrap paper at the office as note pads.
In addition, the light bulbs in the office are energy-efficient, and the company has purchased additional energy-efficient bulbs for employees to take home.
Going forward, the company plans to have 100 percent biodegradable product containers.
