Whether it's the world's first anti-aging beauty chocolate, mineral water dispensers infused with precious gemstones, exclusive niche fragrances, or organic skincare products made from native Hawaiian plants, Beautyworld Middle East will once again be the annual platform of choice for global manufacturers to introduce their newest wares.
Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor will also launch a product-line for Indian manufacturer Olivia Cosmetics on the 2nd day of the annual showcase. Meanwhile, here's ten products to look out for, as the global wellbeing industry converges at the crossroads of beauty and success.
Davines by EIDEAL (UAE)
UAE Company EIDEAL is a regular Beautyworld Middle East exhibitor and a leading manufacturer and distributor of premium hair solutions across the Middle East and North Africa. This year, EIDEAL is launching davines, an Italian eco haircare brand with its roots founded on sustainable beauty.
EIDEAL will also have a shampoo lab at its stand, where a chemist will be on hand to customise a davines' shampoo product based on a visitor's needs and scent preferences.
A guilt-free pleasure that improves health rather than hinders it, Esthechoc is the world's first anti-aging beauty chocolate. According to inventor, Dr. Ivan Mikhailovich Petyaev, a former scientist at Cambridge University, the so-called ‘nutricosmetic' slows down the skin's aging process through a combination of highly potent active substances: Astaxanthin – the most powerful antioxidant known to science – and Cocoa polyphenolic epicatechins, which are found naturally in chocolate.
Dr. Petyaev says one bar of Esthechoc (7.5g, 38 kcal) per day helps to regain skin health and slow down the ageing process in three weeks. And after 10 years of intensive research and clinical trials, it's finally at Beautyworld Middle East 2017.
EVY Professional (Australia)
An Australian-owned brand, EVY Professional is a hair tool range featuring unique patented Japanese mineral technology. Each of the EVY products feature 32 natural negative ion-generating minerals.
