OPEN DOOR POLICY: Fueling the trend for shampoo and styling aids in department stores, Bloomingdale’s has opened its doors to Italian hair care brand Terax. By the end of October, Terax expects to be available in 13 Bloomingdale’s stores across the country, according to Marco Musumeci, executive vice president of Terax America. Products are being merchandised on the cosmetics floor with other hair care brands carried by Bloomingdale’s, such as Frédéric Fekkai and Charles Worthington’s Dream.

GATEKEEPER: Nature’s Gate is launching a propylene glycol and aluminum chlorohydrate-free deodorant stick. The petroleum derivative, which is used in just about all deodorants to combat odor, is commonly believed to be a skin irritant. Aluminum chlorohydrate is connected with possibly clogging underarm pores, according to the company. Nature’s Gate instead relies on baking soda to neutralize odor, and combines witch hazel, juniper berry, echinacea and rosemary for antibacterial properties. The new deodorants are available in lavender and aloe, lemongrass and clary sage, chamomile and lemon verbena and tea tree and blue cypress scents and are retailing for $5.49 in stores such as Long’s Drug Stores.
