104 DAYSPA | SEPTEMBER 2016 IN THE NEWS Happy anniversary wishes are in order for Pevonia, which has reached its 25th year of providing quality professional skincare and spa products. Winner of more than 400 consumer and spa industry awards to date, the Daytona Beach, Florida-based company is celebrating the milestone all year long by creating exclusive VIP experiences with its partnering spas; announcing new product launches and promotions; and continuing its charitable efforts. Founded in 1991 by Philippe and Sylvia Hennessy, the company continues to innovate by launching new treatments and products, including its men's collection and a chic, budget-friendly bath and body line, BodyRenew. "We are beyond proud to celebrate Pevonia's 25th anniversary," says president and CEO Philippe Hennessy. "We are passionately focused on enhancing the company and the brand's success. We are welcoming new distributors to our global network, celebrating the loyalty of clients who have been with us since our launch in 1991, expanding support programs to our loyal customers and introducing them to new products that will help increase profi ts and excite their clients." A Youthful 25 Performance Health, a multi-brand supplier of health, wellness and self-care products including Biofreeze and Bon Vital, has announced its two Educators of the Year, bestowed annually in partnership with the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education (AFMTE, to recognize massage and bodywork education excellence. Award winners are chosen for achievement in educational experience, teacher training and ability to meet the AFMTE Core Competency Standards. Thirty-year massage veteran Julie Goodwin, BA, LMT, taught her craft for 20 years before retiring from her post at Pima Community College earlier this year. Goodwin is the author of Touch & Movement: Palpation and Kinesiology for Massage Therapists (Cengage Learning, 2011). A teacher of advanced studies in professional massage therapy since 1986, Dale G. Alexander, PhD, MA, BSEd, LMT, has a multifaceted educational background and has had the opportunity to study with some of the top names in body therapy, such as the pioneer of craniosacral therapy, John Upledger, DO. c ll nc ucat n Medical device manufacturer BioPhotas has announced that it has attained ISO 13485:2003 certifi cation for the design, manufacture and distribution of low-level light therapy devices. This designation is an important distinction in the medical device market, as it indicates that a company has met key quality standards. The company's Celluma PRO and Celluma LITE devices also recently received CE Mark Certifi cation, enabling them to be sold as medical devices in the European Union, and were given a designation as a Dermal Wound Healing device. The FDA had already cleared Celluma to treat acne, facial wrinkles, local blood circulation and several ailments related to muscles and joints, including arthritis. "The esthetic world is well aware of the rejuvenating effect of LED Light Therapy on the skin," comments BioPhotas' president and CEO Patrick Johnson. "What's less well known is its therapeutic power on healing traumatic or intentional dermal wounds. The CE Certifi cation for Dermal Wound Healing is only the most recent step to seeing the Celluma FDA-cleared to treat deep dermal wounds." CERTIFIABLY HEALING Correction: On page 56 of our July issue, Ashley Koff, RD, was misquoted. Although she supports the health benefits of broccoli and glucoraphanin, Koff was mistakenly quoted as saying that glucoraphanin is "broccoli's anticancer and antimicrobial power player." DAYSPA regrets the error.
