This month, French skin care brand SOTHYS will launch Beauty Garden Organic Range. Approved by Ecocert, the five-item line—which includes a makeup remover, toner, face mask, face cream and body lotion—has as its primary ingredients cherry bud, hawthorn and angelica. “The bud is really the life source of the plant, with the highest level of cell division,” says Brenda Gallagher, vice president of national sales and marketing. “The amount of the active ingredient is much more potent than when you take it from an older plant.” Meanwhile, hawthorn acts as an antioxidant, while angelica targets free radicals to help prevent the first signs of aging. Beauty Garden will retail at select spas; prices range from $30 to $52.
AVEENO adds to its Active Naturals line with Intense Relief Repair Cream for the body. Says Alissa Hsu Lynch, group product director for Aveeno, consumers are looking for a product that has healing moisture benefits. To that end, the cream uses Aveeno’s signature colloidal oatmeal formula to lock in moisture, plus pure oat essence to soothe irritated skin and ceramides to help replenish the skin’s moisture barrier. Launching this month in mass retailers, it’s priced at $12.
