SheaMoisture Launches Call-to-Action to #BreakTheWalls That Divide Beauty

Leading natural beauty brand ignites efforts to bring down beauty walls

For 25 years, Richelieu Dennis, founder and CEO of Sundial Brands, and his family have built their business based on one premise: that the beauty industry should fully serve all women. Recently, SheaMoisture, manufactured by Sundial and one of the industry’s fastest-growing brands, launched its first-ever national awareness platform, #BreakTheWalls—a transformative and revolutionary multimedia effort to highlight the divisive constructs of beauty and move towards the inclusive shopping experience that all women deserve. The first phase includes a 60-second short film, a 30-second spot, #BreakTheWalls digital and social assets and behind-the-scenes footage that highlights everyday women and beauty vloggers raising their voices to ask one simple question: “Why is our beauty not reflected in the beauty aisle?”

“I have often said over the last 20 years that the beauty aisle is the last place in America where segregation is still legal, and separating ‘beauty’ from ‘ethnic’ has only served to further perpetuate narrow standards of what is considered beautiful in our industry and our society—which is why we began leading the efforts to break down those walls” said Dennis. “This movement is about so much more than selling shampoo, or lotion, or cosmetics. We’re advancing a mission and vision to change the social dialogue about how we’re looking at beauty as a society and how those archaic structures and views are debilitating to the establishment of new and more inclusive ways of viewing beauty—whether in the images we see or in the aisles that divide.”

SheaMoisture’s call to “break the walls” is the first of its kind in the beauty industry, but has been imperative for the brand since its inception—even taking 16 years for the brand to come to retail shelves because of Dennis’ refusal to conform to traditional merchandising segmentation and his efforts to ensure that women who had been underserved by the beauty industry had ample access to an assortment of products to meet their lifestyle needs. Creating an enhanced and more inclusive beauty experience has been a charge that SheaMoisture has led directly through engagement with its retail partners and with its diverse community of women around their needs and desired experiences—particularly wanting an experience which didn’t ignore or devalue the needs of women with textured hair, whether wavy, curly, kinky or coily.

Aligned with its community engagement approach, the brand issued an open casting call for the film on its social media channels to its community members—affectionately referred to as SheaFam—who shared their personal hair stories and journeys to self-love and empowerment. The brand also enlisted influential beauty vloggers Naptural85, SunKissAlba, and MahoganyCurls to share their own powerful and inspirational stories in the film.

“With SheaMoisture, we have built a successful brand by recognizing that beauty comes in every hair type, skin tone, shade, and feature, and by honoring the natural beauty of every woman with natural products that address her individual needs and empower her to celebrate her unique journey,” said Dennis. “It is so exciting for us to partner with all of these women who are each, in their own way, leading the conversation with their different stories and common truths about their beauty experiences.”

#BreakTheWalls is an extension of SheaMoisture’s focus on what it has coined as the New General Market and ensuring that all consumers, especially those who have been traditionally underserved, have an enhanced product and shopping experience based on being served according to their needs, not traditional segmentation. This problem-solution approach, defined by inclusion and commonalities via need states, is shifting the way CPG, retail and other consumer companies approach product development, marketing and merchandising to serve all consumers in a much more elevated way. As a result, many retailers have increased efforts to enhance their assortments and merchandising to reflect more inclusion in the near-term, while working with consumers to gain insights and learnings that will help them determine the next level of changes that are ultimately needed to meet their customers’ needs.

“It is also important to recognize our retail partners who—in embracing SheaMoisture, our message of inclusion and our efforts to elevate how all consumers are served in their stores—are indeed embracing the New General Market approach to beauty that is bringing down these arbitrary walls,” said Dennis. “#BreaktheWalls is starting with the beauty industry, but will continue to spur dialogue and action around other societal walls that exist and that serve to divide rather than unite, and this film is only the first of more in exploring these topics.”

SheaMoisture partnered with award-winning creative agency Droga5 to develop the #BreakTheWalls platform and the “Break The Walls” film because of the firm’s ability to understand complicated social issues and constructs, and transform them into compelling, engaging and disruptive calls to action. The effort is both a celebration of the positive changes women are experiencing in the beauty industry and a rallying cry to join together to continue to reshape the beauty landscape—from a dated model of “standardized ideals” to one of inclusive representation at shelf and beyond.

Join SheaMoisture on its journey to #BreakTheWalls and discover how #EveryBodyGetsLove. For more information and to view the film, please visit www.breakthewalls.com.

Fade Resist Hair Color_LowFade Into the Background? No Way!

Dark and Lovely’s #LoveMyColor Campaign Empowers Women to Celebrate Their Diversity and Individuality

Dark and Lovely—the brand that has empowered women for more than 40 years, and the first to create hair color specifically for African-American women—is proud to announce the launch of #LoveMyColor, a celebration created for its Fade Resist Rich Conditioning Color. The “life-changing” campaign gives women a platform to not only embrace their beauty, but to highlight their colorful personalities, which make them who they are.

Dark and Lovely is giving a voice to women everywhere, and encouraging them to visually demonstrate how much they love their color with a user-generated selfie. By uploading a photo to LoveMyColor.com, users are able to describe what their color means to them, by using terms such as “strong,” “rule-breaking,” and “amazing,” to name a few. After customizing, their photos can then be shared on social media as a means of inspiring others to also share their own celebratory selfies using hashtag #LoveMyColor.

“The provocative #LoveMyColor tagline goes beyond being a witty double entendre for women,” says Michelle Ryan, SVP Marketing, Multi-Cultural Beauty Division, L’Oreal USA. “This Dark and Lovely campaign connects with women on every level; their skin color, hair color, and their colorful lives. The look, tone and feel are authentic and anthemic—we hear her voice, we see her moments, and we believe in the hair color that she believes in.”

My Color Is…
#LoveMyColor also consists of real-life “Hair Dyeries” which is a call to action for consumers to share personal testimonies of the things that make them feel powerful, unique and confident. By visiting LoveMyColor.com, viewers will be able to experience the #LoveMyColor selfie generator, Hair Dyeries and the inspiring anthem video—which highlights seven individual profiles of dynamic women. These women span from fashion bloggers to well-known models, but their commonality is refusing to “fade into the background!”

“The #LoveMyColor campaign is so amazing, because it puts women of color in the forefront,” says Claire Sulmers, Editor-in-Chief, FashionBombDaily.com and Dark and Lovely’s campaign ambassador. “It celebrates the vibrant colors that we possess—from our hair colors to the colors of the shoes we wear. Color is a way of showing our personality, so there was no hesitation for me to show it off with Dark and Lovely!”

Dark and Lovely worked collaboratively with TAG Creative, a boutique NYC-based creative agency, to form this visually stunning, powerful and bold campaign that celebrates real women and their individual styles.

Dark and Lovely’s Fade Resist Rich Conditioning Color is a no-drip crème hair color in a low ammonia formula, designed to both color and condition hair. Now, along with a vibrant new Berry Burgundy shade—that has been added to the 19-shade collection—Fade Resist offers a new extra nourishing conditioner in each package. This creamy, moisture-rich conditioner is infused with Triple Fruit Oils—shea, avocado, and olive oils—for extra nourishment and moisture that help to protect color-treated hair. Specially designed for relaxed and natural hair, Fade Resist provides hair with the nutrients it needs to protect it from color damage, while giving users brilliant color and shine. The color is also so rich and ultra-conditioning that it lasts for up to eight weeks.

Dark and Lovely Fade Resist is available for purchase at Walmart, DarkAndLovely.com and other mass retailers nationwide. To join Dark and Lovely’s #LoveMyColor campaign, visit LoveMyColor.com or follow on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.




WAHL 5-Star Barber Combo Pairs the Powerful Legend & Hero Together with Premium Design for Best Overall Value

Utilize two of WAHL’s Top Tools to Perform Precision Cuts

Wahl Professional introduces the new 5-Star Barber Combo, featuring the Legend clipper and Hero trimmer, available in a premium new black and gold look. The Barber Combo from Wahl combines two essential tools for ease and convenience, a sleek design and top mechanics to deliver a barber duo that’s both modern and mighty. The 5-Star Barber Combo is an ideal upgrade for the barber-stylist ready to perform superior cuts with endless possibilities.

Adobe Photoshop PDFAs the name implies, what makes the 5-Star Legend an exceptional tool is the extended blade slide. This lightweight clipper comes with a unique deep-tooth blade and extended lever that allows for a greater cutting range for precision fading. The Legend clipper is equipped with a powerful v9000 electromagnetic motor, built to provide continuous power for the busy user.

“I use the Legend for tapering, fading and even clipper over comb,” says Master Barber Rick Morin, Wahl Education and Artistic Team (W.E.A.T.) member. “The wedge blade and extended lever makes the Legend stand apart from other tools, they’re something we haven’t seen before.”

The wedge blade has “crunch blade technology” unique to the 5-Star line. The cutting blade has a curvature that actually picks up the hair, allowing you to execute an even cut every time.Adobe Photoshop PDF

The 5-Star Hero trimmer is powered by a strong rotary motor and is equipped with a t-blade for precision lining, edging and design. Achieve clean, crisp lines with this sleek, yet sturdy trimmer intended for all hair textures.

“I use the Hero to start my initial line in a bald fade,” says Morin.

The Hero’s powerful motor helps remove the bulk and speed the hair removal when performing a bald fade. Together, barber-stylists gain the Legend and Hero at an overall better value than purchasing the two tools separately.

Any professional comfortable with their clipper techniques will benefit from the Legend clipper and Hero trimmer.

“If you’d like to use the 5-Star Barber Combo but aren’t quite comfortable enough with your clipper techniques, Wahl offers a variety of educational platforms nationwide to help elevate your skill level,” says Wahl Director of Education Laura VanderMoere.

Woodbridge International Closes Sale of van der Hagen to Universal Beauty Products

Woodbridge International, a global mergers and acquisitions firm, is pleased to announce the sale of its client van der Hagen Enterprises, Inc. to Universal Beauty Products, Inc.

Based in Liberty Hill, Texas, van der Hagen manufactures and sells a branded line of traditional wet shave kits and accessories.

Universal viewed the transaction as synergistic with their focus on the over-the-counter (OTC) personal care products. They were attracted to van der Hagen’s well-established brand, wide mass-retail distribution, and loyal customer following.

Headquartered in New Haven, CT, Woodbridge International, a global M&A firm, was founded in 1993 and has 11 offices in the U.S. and 22 offices abroad.




Topiclear Adds New Items to its Line of Topiclear Skin Tone Body Oils!

The name says it all. Topiclear’s Skin Tone Body Oil is the new fast-acting solution for dry skin and uneven skin tone. The major causes of discoloration or dark spots are acne scars and sun damage. Topiclear® is one of the first brands to offer a solution to skin discoloration for more than 20 years. Topiclear® has provided great quality products for the skin and now it introduces a new form of solution to moisturize and even out the skin tone, by using body oils with natural fragrances such as papaya and carrot.Products_Topiclear

Choose between Topiclear Number One Skin Tone Body Oil for a light fragrance, yet with the power to remove skin discoloration while leaving the skin beautifully smooth, or pick Topiclear Number One Papaya Skin Tone Body Oil that has unique papaya properties to help bring the skin back to an even toned complexion with a healthy look. There is also the option of choosing Topiclear Number One Carrot Skin Tone Body Oil that is made with natural carrot root extract that works on rejuvenating the skin and removing dark spots due to scaring or sun damage.

“All three products are created to take away the worries of having dry uneven toned skin or take away the struggle of having to cover up the dark spots with makeup. Here is a product that works to take all of those problems away!”

The benefit of carrot in Topiclear® products is that it contains vitamin A, which protects from sun damage, and helps with pigmentation, blemishes and uneven skin tone. It also acts as an antioxidant to cell damage, helping slow down the aging of cells. Carrot oils improve skin tone, elasticity and prevent premature wrinkling and dry skin. Papaya has been used to heal skin ailments, such as breakouts, dry skin, cellulite and premature aging. These claims come from the powerful enzyme found in papaya called peptin. Peptin is a natural digestive enzyme; when applied typically to the skin it helps to even out the skin tone and leave it with a radiant healthy look. While the carrot and papaya help with skin discoloration, what really makes Topiclear® products work is the 2% of hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is an effective, safe treatment for dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It is known in the beauty industry that products containing hydroquinone are usually the most popular amongst consumers facing skin discoloration.

All three products can be easily added to the daily skin cleansing routine before the start of one’s day or before going to bed. Using it daily will ensure rapid results to a beautiful, smooth and even-toned complexion. www.topiclearinc.com
