62 @dayspamagazine • Januar y 2019 FROM TOP: COURTESY JAPONESQUE; COURTESY REPÊCHAGE IN THE NEWS More than 150 Italian beauty pros gathered at EsthetiWorld by Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna in Milan this past October for the How to Be Successful in Professional Skin Care Conference and two-day master class hosted by Repêchage CEO/founder Lydia Sarfati and Repêchage distributor Euracom. The 2018 EsthetiAward for Best Treatment for Sensitive Skin was given to the Repêchage Red-Out Facial with Seaweed Extract and Silver, and Sarfati discussed the latest trends shaping the skincare industry—most notably, the booming sheet mask market and the emerging fi eld of oncology esthetics. According to a report from Transparency Market Research (April 2018), the global sheet mask business is expected to be worth $551.3 million by 2026—a prediction that inspired Sar fati to create express facial ser vices featuring seaweed-infused sheet masks, which are also available for retail. During the two-day master class, she presented the protocols for some of these ser vices. Angela Noviello, Italian director and national coordinator for OTI Oncology Esthetics, also demonstrated a new treatment featuring a Repêchage mask with a customized massage for cancer patients. "It was amazing to spend time with this group and our team, and also to receive recognition from the industr y for our skincare innovations," says Sar fati. "I look for ward to what's in store for 2019!" Ciao, Bella The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced plans to ban the use of toxic lead acetate in consumer hair dyes. The chemical additive, which is already banned in Canada and the EU, slowly darkens gray hair when used every few days, but has been found to increase the level of lead in users' bodies. "A ban on lead acetate in off-the-shelf hair dyes is long overdue," says Melanie Benesh, a legislative attorney at Environmental Working Group (EWG), one of a dozen public interest groups and individuals who petitioned the FDA for the ban. "There is no safe level of lead exposure, which has been linked to developmental issues, reduced fertility, organ system toxicity, cancer and other serious health problems." The FDA will enforce the new ban beginning in October 2019, which will give companies time to reformulate and remove the additive. Hair Dye Detoxifi ed Turning JAPONESQUE This month, beauty industry veteran JAPONESQUE is launching its full line of cosmetics and a select line of brushes to salon professionals throughout the U.S. exclusively via SalonCentric. Formulated to allow users complete control and create a unique look, the cosmetics include foundations, concealers, bronzers and highlighters, along with artist-inspired color palettes and lip colors. Additionally, the brush collection is customized to deliver a professional experience with precise application. "Our heritage comes from creating products for makeup artists, and launching with SalonCentric is the perfect partnership and natural evolution of the brand," says JAPONESQUE marketing director Danielle Devine. "We are thrilled at the opportunity to support the beauty professional and elevate a salon's business with quality cosmetics." ON A ROLL Research from the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine has established that face massage using a roller can increase skin blood fl ow for more than 10 minutes post-treatment, as well as improve longer-term vasodilation (the widening of blood vessels). In the shor t-term experiment, even a fi ve-minute massage using a noninvasive technique called laser speckle fl owgraphy increased blood fl ow in the massaged cheek, with a relative change of up to approximately 25 percent. In the long-term experiment, the researchers examined the effects of daily massage on the right cheek over a fi ve-week period, as well as how facial blood vessels responded to a heating probe set at 40 degrees Celsius. Findings suggested that using a roller improved the so-called vasodilator y response to heat stimulation. One explanation raised by study authors was that endothelial cells in the massaged area produce more nitric oxide, which is known to be a potent vasodilator.
