Valmont has updated its Essence of Bees collection, launching September 12. Acknowledging the vital importance of the preservation of bees, l’Elixir des Glaciers launched Essence of Bees in 2017, partnering with suppliers and funding the preservation of beehives.

The team at Valmont has combined the powers of honey, propolis, and royal jelly through a patented, Ecocert-certified lipophilic extraction process. The extraction process generates zero pollution.

The new Essence of Bees range is an exceptional anti-ageing daily routine for dry skin.

Valmont and the Arche des Abeilles Foundation have partnered to protect Switzerland’s honey bees by offering foundational support for 20 hives. The honey was incorporated into the original Essence of Bees collection.

Valmont has partnered with four associations to support honey bee preservation projects and committed to donating US$20 from the sale of every Essence of Bees product to the cause.
Dyson’s aware that the cost of living is going up, so it’s launched its Supersonic Origin, a simplified version of its Supersonic hairdryer. At NZ$599, NZ$100 cheaper than the original, it comes with the smoothing nozzle attachment.

Living Nature has announced its Firming Eye Cream, featuring Bakuchiol, derived from Psorelea corylifolia, which has powerful antioxidant properties. This vegan ingredient has its roots in Indian and Chinese medicine and research shows topical application benefits all skin types. Living Nature has added hyaluronic acid, marine algæ, native New Zealand mānuka honey and harakeke flax gel. The cream meets the Cosmos standard of naturalness. In New Zealand, it’s priced at NZ$39 for 10 ml, available from and selected stockists.
