JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Ethnic hair care brand Creme of Nature has added the Creme of Nature with Argan Oil no-lye relaxer to its portfolio of argan oil hair care products.

The product is available at mass-market retailers and beauty supply stores in October, and it joins the five Creme of Nature with Argan Oil moisture-enriched shine products that debuted earlier this summer.

The relaxer system is infused with nutrient-rich certified organic argan oil from Morocco with advanced straightening performance. Packaged in new, Moroccan-themed kits, the relaxer will be available in regular and super strengths to meet the needs of varying hair textures.

The creamy emollient formula is designed to be easy to mix and apply. The kit includes the Creme of Nature with Argan Oil intensive conditioning treatment and the Creme of Nature with Argan Oil gloss and shine polisher. In addition to these two products, the kit also will include a neutralizing shampoo and step-by-step directions for application.

"The Creme of Nature with Argan Oil relaxer incorporates the healing, moisturizing and conditioning properties of argan oil to offer a relaxer to consumers that is one-of-a-kind, yet affordable," stated Colomer USA multicultural VP marketing Shawn Tollerson. "We have received a great response from consumers with the launch of argan oil shine hair care products. So now, women who relax their hair can enjoy the benefits of argan oil during this process, from start to finish."

The Skin Cancer Foundation salutes two executives at gala

BY Antoinette Alexander

NEW YORK The Skin Cancer Foundation held its annual Skin Sense Award Gala on Oct. 12, honoring Al Robertson, general manager and CMO of Energizer Personal Care, and Gabriel Tanbourgi, president of BASF Care Chemicals, for their leadership roles in promoting skin health.

The event, held at the Pierre Hotel in New York, attracted roughly 350 people.

“The Skin Sense Award Gala is always a very special night for the foundation, and we deeply appreciate everyone’s support in making the evening a success,” stated Perry Robins, president of The Skin Cancer Foundation. “We know that people are well-aware of the dangers of the sun. However, our research tells us that most people still resist making sun protection a part of their lifestyle. Clearly, there is much work to be done, which is why the Gala is so important.”

Showing their support for the cause were actors Kevin Navayne of “CSI: New York” and Tony Sirico, formerly of “The Sopranos,” and an array of notable guests from the fashion, music, food and reality TV industries. Attendees included acclaimed food critic Gael Greene, musicians Sylvia Tosun and Matt White and fashion insiders Richie Rich and Nole Marin.

Sam Champion, weather anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” hosted the night’s festivities. Champion has battled skin cancer and has done much to raise awareness about the disease.

The program also included a special performance by piano iconoclast ELEW, known for his melding of ragtime, rock and pop, called rockjazz. For the first time, the Gala included an exclusive after party.

Vaseline turns 140

BY Antoinette Alexander

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. Vaseline petroleum jelly, which is a Unilever brand, is celebrating its 140th anniversary with a new online campaign and the launch of a new cocoa butter variant, as well as new packaging.

Vaseline petroleum jelly was first discovered in 1859 by Robert Chesebrough, a 22-year-old chemist from Brooklyn, N.Y. Chesebrough traveled to Pennsylvania to study the oil extraction and refinement process and was drawn to a byproduct of the oil refinery process used by the riggers to help aid the healing of cuts and burns: petrolatum. He took some of the substance home with him and, after testing, discovered he could extract a skin-friendly version of the material. In 1870, Chesebrough introduced the product to the public as Vaseline petroleum jelly, and by 1974, it was being sold nationwide at the rate of a jar a minute.

To celebrate its history, Vaseline is compiling the ultimate list of uses by inviting fans to share how they flip for Vaseline petroleum jelly. The campaign coincides with the launch of new packaging that features a flip cap, making it easy to use with one hand. In addition, a new Vaseline petroleum jelly rich condition cocoa butter variant is joining original Vaseline petroleum jelly and Vaseline petroleum jelly baby on store shelves.

The success of Vaseline petroleum jelly can be attributed to its many uses, which range from skin care and beauty to athletic, household and more. In beauty, makeup artists keep the product handy to set makeup in place and prevent red lipstick from sticking to teeth. It can be applied to skin after shaving to soothe legs, to eyelids as a daily moisturizer and all over the body to act as a protective barrier.
