Canada’s Pari Beauty opens first storefront location
TORONTO — Prestige cosmetics and skin care brand Pari Beauty has opened its first-ever storefront location in an Ontario mall as part of its expansion strategy, the company has announced.
Located in Scarborough Town Centre in Ontario, the store marks the third of three recent openings that include two mall boutique kiosks in Oakville Place and Vaughan Mills showcasing its line of products.
"We are so pleased to have opened our first inline retail store, which is a big step for our company," stated Ramesh Jolly, chairman at Pari Beauty. "Taking the customer experience to a whole new level with a standalone store was an integral part of our growth strategy, and we’re looking forward to continued expansion in the retail market."
Pari Beauty has 27 locations in shopping centers from British Columbia to Alberta and Quebec. Staffed by trained makeup professionals, consumers can learn about the latest products or participate in one-on-one consultations or makeovers with makeup artists and leave with pro tips and tricks.
The company has strong ties in the cosmetics industry with a dedicated discount program for students and professionals involved in the makeup artistry trade. It also recently made its customization program available to the general public, which allows customers to mix and match palettes of eye shadows, blush, foundations and bronzers to create color sets suited for their individual needs.
"Developing high-performance products and services that cater to the ever-changing beauty needs of professionals and consumers has always been our focus," stated Shawn Jolly, director of operations and finance at Pari Beauty. "From our recyclable packaging to customizable palettes and our newest Pari Naturals line, we continue to innovate so we can service those needs."

Designer Whey announces new Sustained Energy protein mix
LOS ANGELES — Designer Whey, a company that has formulated whey products for more than 20 years, today introduced the first in a series of solution-based products: Sustained Energy, a whey protein mix containing a blend of natural proteins, fiber and vitamins that, the company says, synergistically provides balanced, sustained energy throughout the day.
Formulated with an "endurance blend" of proteins — fast-absorbing whey protein and slower-absorbing soy & casein — Designer Whey Sustained Energy provides a steady supply of essential amino acids over a longer period while also helping control hunger.
Designer Whey Sustained Energy is also naturally flavored and sweetened, Kosher certified, gluten free, stimulant-free, and provides an excellent source of 19 essential vitamins & minerals, calcium & vitamin D as well as fiber, and contains only 100 calories per serving.
According to Designer Whey, fatigue can stem from a myriad of sources — stress, a high sugar diet, dehydration, lack of sleep, or meal skipping — and Designer Whey Sustained Energy can help meet the needs of a balanced diet in an active life. The company recommends using Sustained Energy as part of a breakfast smoothie, post-workout recovery or an afternoon snack for sustained energy and staving off hunger.
Sustained Energy is available in chocolate velvet and vanilla bean at many retail stores nationwide such as Kroger, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, King Soopers, Dillons, Smith’s, Baker’s, Ralphs, QFC, ShopRite, HEB, The Vitamin Shoppe, and many others. Visit designerwhey.com to learn more.
