eoStrata Cosmeceutical Experts are among the best in their field. Nominated by their Peers, Vendor or Retailer, they represent the highest standard in skin care consultation. NeoStrata congratulates each winner for their outstanding customer service all year long. ∏

CONGRATULATIONS SARAH SHUPE! NeoStrata Cosmeceutical Expert, Shoppers Drug Mart, Darmouth, Nova Scotia ∏

INNOVATION IS A BIG REASON FOR THE GROWTH IN THE SKIN CARE CATEGORY TODAY. HOW HAS NEOSTRATA SHOWN LEADERSHIP IN THIS AREA?

HOW IMPORTANT IS TRAINING WHEN IT COMES TO THE SKIN CARE CATEGORY?

T

raining is absolutely vital when it comes to the skin care category. Today’s customer is informed, educated, and has high expectations of her beauty advisor. It’s important to establish yourself as the subject matter expert by knowing your ingredients, the results of clinical studies, and the how layering certain ingredients may help – or hinder – their effectiveness. Today’s customer evaluates us carefully, and holds us to an extraordinarily high standard. Rise to that expectation through training and careful study! Expand upon the information she’s already gained in such a way that she never feels diminished, but instead feels as if you and she are working together in a partnership for her best skin.

NeoStrata is always ahead of the curve when it comes to innovation. One of the best examples is the new at-home facial peels. My favorite is the Anti-Aging Peel Solution. It’s cutting edge in that it’s professional-grade, and offers two benefits: an immediate skin smoothing effect and also antiaging benefits. It’s incredible that we’re now able to offer our clients products that were previously only available at a dermatologist’s office or a medi-spa, and that they can expect the same amazing results – with no recovery time. It doesn’t get much more innovative than that! ∏

WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE NEOSTRATA PRODUCT YOU RECOMMEND AND WHY? ∏

We live in an ‘instant’ society. My clients want visible results, and they want them fast. If a product doesn’t deliver, they quickly move on the next industry sweetheart. My favourite NeoStrata product is the product that best fills the needs of my fast-results-oriented clients: All-In-One Night Serum. ∏

This serum uses gold-standard anti-aging ingredients, such as Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid, in highest-in-class percentages. What this means for my client is a visible change in the skin, most notably in fine lines, pore size, and wrinkles, in as little as two weeks. I love that I can attest to the effectiveness of this product because it took years off the look of my own skin, and my clients love the ‘before and after’ clinical photographs on the box.

PARTY TIME! 2017: A Fragrance & Beauty Fest to Remember

WELCOME TO the

summer issue featuring all the finalists and winners of this year’s Canadian Fragrance & Beauty Awards held at the Carlu in downtown Toronto last month (see page 29 for full coverage). Newly expanded categories included makeup and skincare, and the excitement of everyone in the room was electric. Over 300 people joined the celebrations, which included an after party sponsored by Icon Digital, and many more watched online. If you couldn’t be there, you can relive the evening by visiting Cosmeticsmag.com and clicking on the event link. Next year, these awards will become the Canadian Beauty Awards, with even more categories, and the focus will be on product innovation. We will be announcing the new categories soon, so stay tuned. Thanks to everyone who made the event such a great success. Looking forward to next year!

Cool Canadian Beauty: How We’ll Show our National Pride THE ENERGY at the

Fragrance & Beauty Awards a few weeks back was buzzing from start to finish — and with good reason. This year a record number of finalists (55 in total!) got a room full of beauty experts giddy with excitement during the trials, never mind the awards ceremony. Watching the winners being recognized and listening to Christine Dallaire’s incredibly moving Lifetime Achievement Award speech (read about her path from Beauty Advisor to General Manager of Clarins Canada on page 54) served as a perfect reminder of how far passion and perseverance can take us. Now we’re heading into summer with even more to celebrate, including fabulous new launches (starting on page 13) and inspiring Canadian entrepreneurs (page 24). Is there a better way to show your national pride, or celebrate Canada turning 150, I ask you, than sporting the country’s hottest beauty offerings?

TRENDS TO TRY

Trend Nº 2

Tiny yet Mighty

MICRO-BRAIDS

ACROSS THE SS17 runways,

braids were mini but mighty, so this season, we’re swapping thick fishtails for something finer: micro-braids. Mini-plaits punctuated relaxed waves at Roberto Cavalli, poked out of updos at San Andrès Milano, and climbed up the back into tight topknots by Redken global creative director Guido Palau at Dior. For best results, work a defining lotion into the hair to smooth and provide extra grip — Palau opted for Redken Braid Aid 03 at Dior. Finish the look with a hair dryer on a cool setting to beat humidity. — Heather Marrin Clockwise from top: Show: Roberto Cavalli Milan Fashion Week SS17. Look: Centre part with micro-plaits at each side. @roberto_cavalli. Show: San Andrès Milano Milan Fashion Week SS17. Look: Dishevelled updos with very tiny braids. | @sanandresmilano Show: Dior Paris Fashion Week SS17 Look: Slick top knots with micro braiding up the back. | #DiorSS17.

BEST FOR:

Taming flyaways on the court and adding romance to festival looks; the micro-braid is polished yet unpretentious.

Canada is a hotbed of beauty talent. When it comes to female-led businesses in the industry — from well-known success stories like Cargo and Lise Watier, to newer entries such as Province Apothecary, RMS Beauty, Bite Beauty and Nudestix — there are so many game-changing brands to celebrate in this fair land. So what makes Canada such an attractive place to start a cosmetics company? “First, the prestige beauty industry is very healthy in Canada,” says Amy Chung, account specialist with market research firm the NPD Group. “Sales last year were up 14 per cent and climbed over the $2-billion mark.” Comparatively, the Canadian market grew more than two times faster than the U.S. and about five times faster than the European market, says Chung. It’s an appetite housed in very specific areas, because almost 50 per cent of Canadians live in the country’s biggest cities: Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. “Launching in those six CMAs alone gives access to a very broad base,” says Chung. And these cities offer a unique retail landscape. “We have a much more concentrated retailer base, and two of our biggest prestige beauty retailers are Canadian companies,” she adds, referring to Hudson’s Bay and Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix.

But a thriving industry doesn’t mean it’s easy to break through. The key to becoming a successful beauty brand is securing distribution in these retail stores: Without it, sales are limited and, sans sales potential, production is restricted. Recently conglomerates have begun championing up-andcoming beauty brands, offering both mentorship and experience, in return for accessibility and association. Sephora launched its Accelerate Cohort last year, which has championed 18 female-led beauty brands so far and in January L’Oréal announced a partnership with London-based Founders Factory, a global digital accelerator and incubator, to nurture five international startups a year. One of the biggest benefits of these programs is distribution opportunities. Sephora — seen as the holy grail, with 2,300 stores in 33 countries, including 65 in Canada, plus highly successful e-commerce — offers a bootcamp, low-interest loan funding,

“We were thrilled to see that each entrepreneur in last year’s cohort gained traction with her business, and all the businesses with retail product landed retail partnerships for distribution.” As a participant in this year’s Sephora Accelerate Cohort, Mary Futher — founder of Kaia Naturals, an eight-yearold eco-beauty brand, best known for its Juicy Bamboo Cloths, mainly available in spas and boutiques — is especially thankful. “According to TechCrunch, from 2010 to 2015, 90 per cent of all venture capital funding was allocated to businesses founded by men,” she says. “Female entrepreneurs are finally getting exclusive opportunities to grow their businesses beyond niche retailers, thanks to Sephora’s vision.” Julie Clark, who launched natural, organic oil-based skincare line Province Apothecary in 2012, also relies on a network of female entrepreneurs like herself. “Almost all of my best girlfriends own their own

“Female entrepreneurs are finally getting exclusive opportunities to grow their businesses beyond niche retailers.”— Mary Futher grants and shelf-space potential. “Being an entrepreneur is hard, no matter what,” says Corrie Conrad, head of social impact and sustainability for Sephora. “But research shows it’s even harder for women. Women tend to have less access to mentors, networks and funding.” Landing a sweet distribution deal is a measure of success to Conrad:

businesses. I feel so fortunate to be part of our community. We’re always there for one another and love to learn from each other,” says Clark, whose line, which uses ingredients native to every province, is now available in over 50 stores in Canada and the U.S. For Susanne Langmuir, who also launched her latest venture, Bite Beauty, in 2012, scoring a 25

meeting with Sephora was so integral, it resulted in her discontinuing Sula and Sula, a natural beauty line she founded that was stocked at Walgreens and Nordstom in the U.S. It was a difficult decision, but one Langmuir says propelled her new brand forward. “Sephora is such an unbelievable partner that when something’s working well and you’ve got their support, it’s incredible how monumental the growth can be,” she says. It paid off: Bite is now sold at over 700 Sephora stores and is one of the retailer’s best-selling niche brands. The partnership took a while to get off the ground. “I stalked them,” says Langmuir. But after being turned down five times, she developed a lipbased concept. “I needed to double down and focus on being the best in one category. I chose lips because, for me, it’s the most relevant. It’s generally the first product a girl uses and it’s the product that a grandmother still uses.” This specialty, and using natural food-grade ingredients, gave Langmuir a point of difference. Meanwhile, a small in-house lab, a concept she developed when she set up an in-store lipstick lab at the Sephora Yorkdale 26

location, allowed for flexibility. Its success led to the opening of Lip Labs by Bite in SoHo in New York and Queen Street West in Toronto. Langmuir, who sold Avon products in high school and ran an aromatherapy kiosk in Yorkdale (for which she made organic lotions and salves in her kitchen), says the key to being a successful entrepreneur is simple: “Be passionate. Follow your gut. And if those two things are leading you, then finding people to help you, information and ingredients, customers, finding suppliers... all that stuff happens.” The many excellent products with Canadian women behind them, filling shelves and making an impact, are signs of exciting things happening in the industry. “I think Canadians are interested in supporting local businesses,” says Province Apothecary’s Julie Clark. “In Toronto, there’s a strong network of female entrepreneurs that support and help each other.” Sephora’s Conrad agrees: “Our clients love creative, new products, technology and services, and the vast majority of our clients are women,” says Conrad. “Who better to design the future of beauty than women?”

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD Christine Dallaire General Manager, Clarins

known among her co-workers as the “Big Ball of Love,” was born and raised in Montreal. She started her beauty career at the cosmetics department at Simpsons, selling Elizabeth Arden and fragrances, while pursuing a university degree in the evenings. After working at counter level for three years, in 1985, Dallaire joined Lippens as a multi-brand account executive for the Quebec territory, the company that would, in 1995, become Clarins Canada. It was the start of a 32-year journey. “It’s not me that’s successful,” she says, when questioned about her rise through the ranks. (In 1988, Dallaire became the first exclusive Lippens account executive for Canada and, in 1991, she was made national sales director for the country.) “It’s Clarins CHRISTINE DALLAIRE,

that’s successful — successful 33 years ago when they decided to distribute in Canada and when they hired me, a person working behind the counter.” Indeed, Dallaire is known for empowering staff as much as she is generating sales. “My biggest accomplishment is the quality of the team,” she says, some members of which have been with her for 25 years. Dallaire has also pioneered innovations for the company. In 1995, when Lippens became Clarins Canada, she helped introduce skincare demonstrations performed at store level (after the success of which, in 1997, she was appointed vice-president of sales and mar-

TOUCH OF GREEN Superfoods like kale and algae aren’t just for eating. New skincare products put their benefits at your fingertips By Mishal Cazmi

COME WARMER WEATHER, we all

crave greens, and we’ll take them however we can get them—from cold-pressed juices, in salads or via supplements. Now, they’re also available in skincare form, thanks to beauty brands that are tapping into their abundant health benefits. Greens have earned the “super” in superfood for good reason: “Foods like kale, algae and spinach are rich in anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and potent anti-oxidants that can protect the skin from the effects of sun damage and free radical damage,” says Dr. Jennifer Pearlman of Toronto-based PearlMD Rejuvenation. Cruciferous veggies in particular (like cabbage, kale and broccoli) are full of nutrients such as beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, vitamin C, E and K, folate and minerals. In skincare, these nutrients are said to do everything from brightening and hydrating, to reducing inflammation. Beta-carotene, for example, helps protect against harmful free radicals and gives skin a healthy glow, while vitamin C brightens.

But is there any merit to getting your fix from a face cream instead of the old-fashioned way? “The green skincare trend is more than just a marketing fad,” says Dr. Pearlman. “It is based on the realization that a comprehensive beauty plan must start from within, and plant-based, whole-food diets can deliver a full dose of skin-enhancing nutrients.” That said, Dr. Pearlman notes that while superfoods in the diet can have health benefits, it’s less clear if applying them topically is as effective. Beauty brands continue to harness the power of greens in everything from serums and scrubs to face masks. At first, kale, spinach and green tea were at the forefront in launches like Origins’ By All Greens Foaming Deep Cleansing Mask and Nip + Fab’s Kale Fix range, and vegan skincare brands such as Youth to the People. This year, spirulina, sprouts and algae are being harnessed for their skin-boosting properties. The grass certainly seems greener on this side of skincare.

Q

“Parfum is the most concentrated form of fragrance, with a typical perfume-oil-in-alcohol concentration of 23 to 30 per cent.”

Your quarterly resource for boosting sales

Eau de Par f um “An Eau de Parfum measures in at about 18 to 22 per cent perfume oil concentration.”

What’s the difference between a parfum and an eau fraÎche?

“A perfume used to have the same character in all its concentrations, with the variation in personality being a matter of the perfume-oil percentage (see right). That has changed. Today, a perfume can be a completely different combination of ingredients in its EDP (Eau de Parfum) versus its EDT (Eau de Toilette). Take Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir. The two have notes in common, but the EDP is more floral-chypre, the EDT more fruity-gourmand. The idea is that two different Givenchy customers would each be able to find one they love.” — Deborah Fulsang, editorial director, the Whale and the Rose

Eau de Toilet te “Next on the scale is an Eau de Toilette at 13 to 17 per cent.”

Eau de Colog ne “An Eau de Cologne is 2 to 5 per cent.”

Eau Fraîche “Summery Eau Fraîches are the lightest on the perfume spectrum, with a characteristic 1 to 3 per cent perfume oil.”

5 Tips for Selling Fragrance By Marian Bendeth, owner of fragrance consulting company, Sixth Scents.

1. Welcoming eye

contact is important, but avoid highly complimentary introductions which can be construed as artificial. 2. Ascertain if they

are seeking a gift or wanting to experiment with either a

SUMMER 2017 | COSMETICSMAG.COM

new scent or classification altogether. 3. Gather fragrance

names they already wear to guide you in their tastes and to determine which scents they will be offered to test. 4. Find out if they

are ready to exper-

iment with a new fragrance family. New doesn't necessarily mean newly launched. 5. Your counter

should be a place of intrigue and education. Flacons and blotters should look appealing and clean. 67

USE YOUR SKILLS TO DO SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL FOR WOMEN WITH CANCER WRITTEN BY LARISSA CAHUTE

Meet Tanya, a Look Good Feel Better Champion Montreal makeup artist Tanya Saba has been a Look Good Feel Better volunteer since March and she loves it already. For just three hours each month, she helps lead complimentary workshops for women and teens with cancer. As part of the charitable program, she teaches them how to manage the appearance-related effects of cancer and its treatment – like the loss of hair, eyebrows, lashes and excruciatingly dry and sallow skin. “After each workshop, the women leave with renewed energy and a big smile,” Saba said. The most inspiring moments are when she sees women laughing and having fun together.

TANYA SABA

She particularly remembers two young women who developed a friendship during the two-hour session. “One of them said: ‘Wow! It’s been so long since I’ve had this much fun.’ Her friend replied, ‘I haven’t thought of my illness for more than two hours now,’” Tanya recalled. “It was especially moving to watch them develop such a nice bond while supporting each other during this hardship.” Look Good Feel Better is in desperate need of volunteers like Tanya across the country. If you have a passion for beauty, sign up to become a volunteer today and start helping women and teens with cancer feel like themselves again.

ombré hair look, and we’ve been #obsessed since she stole our hearts as Gertie in E.T. in 1982. Now, in her latest show, Santa Clarita Diet, Drew Barrymore even looks beautiful as a zombie. Having started her own beauty line in 2013 (flower beauty.com) and regularly hashtagging her beauty posts #beautyjunkieweek, she’s a natural candidate for our deep creep, and is an inspiring mother, entrepreneur, producer and author to boot. “I’ve never used fillers or tricks yet,” she says, and, well, whatever she’s doing, it’s working. (We suspect owning a wine label helps. )

2. 1. This was taught to me when I was a teenager. It’s what all the big makeup artists used. Especially on the models at fashion shows who would have extreme makeup at times and needed to remove. This is by far the best makeup remover I have ever used... @biodermausa @biodermafrance

2. I defy you to find a better “all in one”. My dad used this to wash his clothes. Brush his teeth. It has many functions. @drbronners can be the miracle natural product you want it to be.

3. There is no end to masks. Don’t mess with your face. I’ve not used fillers or tricks yet. So I turn to innovation in skin care and beauty. Let me turn you on to attainable solutions. Be your best YOU. 4. If you are trying to preserve a blow dry or just-like-sleptin hair, this is the best dry shampoo. Poof and marvel. 5. I once again found a hybrid of wine and beauty. These are lipsticks made from wine pigments. #howcool @flowerbeauty 71
