BY Alaric DeArment

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Specialty Pharmacy Certification Board is requesting that applicants for its credentialing program for specialty pharmacists send in their applications by Sept. 15, the group said Friday.

The SPCB said the due date applies to the first round of Certified Specialty Pharmacy tests, which will be administered in October, and pharmacists can apply online for the test.

"We urge all specialty pharmacists interested in elevating their careers and distinguishing themselves from their peers to consider taking advantage of this unique credentialing opportunity this October," SPCB executive director Gary Cohen said. "CSP represents the only industry-wide opportunity for specialty pharmacists to demonstrate their expertise and skill level to current and prospective employers. Because of the increasing demand for specialty pharmacy by the medical community and its patients, this professional development opportunity will become an important benchmark for those within the specialty pharmacy sector moving forward."

Coty expands fragrance portfolio with new Halle Berry Exotic Jasmine

BY Antoinette Alexander

NEW YORK — Coty Inc. has introduced the new Halle Berry Exotic Jasmine fragrance.

According to the company, the fragrance has a backdrop of wood notes and skin musks that embraces the star note — Jasmine — in its purest form. Top notes of fresh violet leaf, bright neroli and airy cyclamen lead to blossoming jasmine sambac, plumeria blossom and fluid hedione. The fragrance dries down to a warm base of white cedar, soft vetiver and skin musk that lingers on the skin.

"I created a scent that combines two particular intriguing facets of Jasmine that most appeal to me," stated David Apel, Symrise perfurmer who developed the scent. "First, the intoxicating scent of Jasmine in the air, both opulent and transparent at once. Then, the seductive effect of Jasmine on skin, transporting the wearer to a mystical, sensual place." This duality perfectly captures Halle’s own fascinating combination of classic beauty and smoldering allure.

The Halle Berry Exotic Jasmine packaging visually captures the light, feminine floralcy of the fragrance. The pink juice shines through a chic bottle embossed with a jasmine floral pattern. The signature HB monogram discreetly embossed on the top of the bottle serves as a subtle nod to the fragrance’s iconic creator. It is housed in a subtle jasmine-print package.

The new fragrance is available worldwide now.

Wahl on hunt to find best facial hair in the country

BY Antoinette Alexander

STERLING, Ill. — Looking to find the best facial hair in America, Wahl is kicking off its annual Wahl Man of the Year competition and is sending a 30-ft. mobile barbershop city to city.

"For many guys, facial hair is much more than a trend—it’s a badge of honor," stated Steve Yde, marketing director for Wahl. "That’s why the Wahl Man of the Year contest exists. It’s about recognizing and honoring those who not only wear facial hair, but do it with pride."

Dubbed the ultimate facial-hair faceoff and the ‘mane’ event, the Wahl Man of the Year contest gives facial hair enthusiasts the chance to go head to head, or in this case, face to face, against the country’s best beards, mustaches and goatees. Fifteen finalists will win $500 and a Wahl Lithium Ion + Stainless Steel Trimmer. One contestant will emerge the 2013 champion and will receive a $1,000 grand prize. Those who think they have what it takes to compete can enter online at WahlNation.com. The Wahl Man of the Year competition runs through Oct. 28.

To find its next Man of the Year, Wahl is sending its 30-foot mobile barbershop city to city, stopping at major fairs and festivals across the country. Titled the “Face the Day Tour,” those who stop by can enter the contest while also receiving some help getting their facial hair in game shape. Wahl’s team of master barbers will be on hand to provide free facial hair trims. For every facial hair trim performed, Wahl will donate $1 to ZERO, a foundation that is helping to fight against prostate cancer, the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men.

"As a family-owned company, Wahl is always looking for ways to use our products for good — whether it’s supporting charitable organizations based on free trims or donating clippers and trimmers to support head-shaving and facial hair growing events," Yde stated.
