It may have been smaller than in years past, but the 2021 edition of Cosmoprof North America—the new-product beauty bonanza held in Las Vegas last week—was certainly not without its superstars. Here are just some of our favorites:
It’s not a brand that’s new to us, but Sonage gets major bonus points for upping its commitment to sustainability in recent months with new packaging, new applications and some new vegan options. Up next: A February 2022 launch that’s the ultimate in under-eye rejuvenation.
Based in Lithuania and created by a microbiologist, this essential oil–inspired line makes a solid case for “beauty shots” with its well-curated line of skin-care enhancers.
Who says good beauty products need to be overly complicated? This Canadian line keeps it simple with two amazing scents—Mia is for floral fans, Olivine offers that warm, vanilla fragrance—that are sure to beg the always-welcomed question, “What are you wearing?”
As the name suggests, this clean line (it was actually made as a COVID response) is designed to “safeguard your skin,” which includes keeping out environmental aggressors, protecting the microbiome and giving its users “peace of mind.”
Sparked by the simple idea of formulating products for skin issues not commonly addressed (under-arm darkness anyone?), this problem solution–oriented brand is breaking barriers.
It’s a candle! It’s a massage oil! It’s CBD! This major multitasker is the wellness staple we never knew we needed.
This family-owned, plant-based line uses chemistry and a focus on community to deliver herbal formulas “you can feel!”
The CBD formulas are solid (and the ingredients come from the company’s farm in Colombia), but the totally sustainable packaging that you can plant, makes it seriously different.
