Staying Fresh on the go
DETROIT — As new wipes for removing makeup and dirt continue to hit the beauty shelves, one company is taking a “swipe” at a different segment. Enter Forever Fresh’s Swipe deodorant wipes.
The single-use wipes were designed to offer consumers the convenience to travel without a bulky stick of deodorant. Each pocket-sized deodorant wipe is individually wrapped and 100% biodegradable.
Infused with natural tea tree extract, Swipe applies a new layer of deodorant protection and eliminates body odor in the process, the company said.
Made in the United States, Swipe currently is sold online on Amazon and eBay. Forever Fresh noted that it is working to partner with additional retailers to make Swipe available in stores nationwide.
Wipes, towelettes freshen up category
From removing makeup to cleaning “boogies” from a baby’s nose, wipes and moist towelettes continue to strengthen their foothold in beauty and personal care.
The reason for the greater attention is pretty simple — busy consumers seek products that offer on-the-go convenience.
Beauty and personal care brands are heeding the call. For example, b-lēve skincare has developed its new b-nourished Facial Cleansing Cloths, which are cleansing wipes that remove makeup and impurities while leaving skin hydrated and refreshed. The cloths are infused with safflower seed oleosomes and jojoba oil to moisturize, while soap tree bark soothes and refreshes.
Meanwhile, La Fresh Group recently announced the launch of Eco-Beauty Be Good, a line of skin care products made with a natural anti-aging botanical complex of maqui berry, licorice root, ginkgo leaf, grape seed and hickory bark.
In addition, ethnic beauty brand Ambi has launched its new Even & Clear Makeup Removing Cleansing Cloths for women of color. The cloths provide a soap-free formula with moisturizing ingredients.
Bioré harnesses power of charcoal for new line
CINCINNATI — Bioré, a Kao USA beauty brand, is leveraging the power of charcoal with its new Bioré Skincare line, which includes a self-heating, one-minute facial mask.
Known for its ability to attract and absorb pollutants, black charcoal has been a skin care staple for years. Harnessing the power of natural charcoal and combining it with skin purifying technology, Bioré has developed the new Bioré Skincare Self Heating One Minute Mask and Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser to ring in a new era in clean.
The thermal mask warms to open pores and draws out and dissolves 2.5 times more dirt, oil and surface toxins than a basic cleanser, the company stated.
