F a t h e r F i g u r e s G l o b a l M o v e m e n t [ 80 ] • # dayspamagazine • september 2018 The International SPA Association (ISPA) Foundation has announced this year's recipient of the Mary Tabacchi Scholarship. Christine Muchemu from Ithaca, New York, will be presented with the award onstage during the General Session at the 28th annual ISPA Conference & Expo at the Phoenix Co nvention Center in Arizona, taking place from September 24 to 26. Muchemu is currently in her second year in the Master of Business Administration program at Cornell University, where her concentration is in business management. Upon graduation, she plans to establish a family-owned, clean label hair and beauty brand. In addition to a gratis registration, travel stipend and hotel accommodations for the 2018 ISPA Conference & Expo, Muchemu will re ceive $5,000 to off set her education expenses and a one-year ISPA student membership, and will be assigned a mentor to help navigate her career aspirations for the next year. "Christine's educational background and strong work ethic are the exact qualities the scholarship committee looks for when selecting a recipient, and we can't wait to see what she will do in the years to come," says ISPA Foundation chairman Frank Pitsikalis. GRAND PRIZE According to new fi ndings from market research group Mintel, 32 percent of U.S. fathers with one child and 38 percent with two children say they use personal care products to prevent signs of aging, compared to 23 percent of male personal care product users without kids. Also of note: American men spent $4.5 billion on such items last year, and "looking healthy" was their number one goal. Meanwhile, 70 percent reported using sun protection, while 64 percent said they use facial skin care. "Looking ahead, Mintel forecasts slow and steady category sales growth as men aged 35 to 44, and specifi cally dads, help to propel the market forward," says Marissa Gilbert, associate director of health and wellness at Mintel. ther igu re s TOP: © GETTY IMAGES; BOTTOM: COURTESY ISPA World Wellness Weekend (W3) has reported exponential growth for 2018, with an estimated 70 countries and more than 400 properties now expected to join the event on September 22 and 23—a huge leap over the two countries that participated last year.
