Conscious beauty products

Published

on

I’m Nana, the cofounder of Lunalis Cosmetics. My sister Laila and I created our own brand of natural, radiance-boosting skin care—one that is both run and powered by the female spirit—after navigating a personal hardship: losing our mother.

When we first learned that our Mom had been diagnosed with malignant brain cancer, it was a total shock to us. We wanted to do everything possible to save her. Through her journey, we learned a lot about cancer and the cancerous products we’re exposed to on a daily basis, as well as a more holistic approach to health.

The loss of our Mom took quite a toll on us, and shortly after we felt the need to go back to our native Morocco to reconnect with our roots. We took a trip during the summertime when conditions are especially dry and harsh, visiting the rural, mountainous areas of our home country. During our trip, we encountered the many women who make their living by working in these mountains, many times for just pennies for importers from abroad. Even in the most treacherous and dry environments, they possessed the most radiant hair and glowing skin. But how?

These women then shared with us their secret to healthy skin and hair that had been passed along for generations: the Opuntia Prickly Pear plant. Considered a “miracle crop” since ancient times, the Prickly Pear’s ability to grow abundantly in warm, dry climates without any irrigation has earned it a reputation for being strong and resilient, a sentiment that greatly resonated with me on a personal level. At that moment, I suddenly felt deeply connected to this plant-strong, adaptable, and impenetrable on the outside, protecting its soft, rich, and precious inside. Thriving in even the most seemingly impossible conditions, this cactus persisted. And for me? Even after experiencing a devastating and heartbreaking loss, I, too, persisted. This plant was a symbol of my own determination, conviction, and fortitude.

I knew I wanted to create my own line of skin care with it, a line that was safe and toxin-free but still delivered potent, powerful results. At the same time, I also wanted to help these women by sourcing this wonder plant from them while paying them a livable wage. From there, the idea for Lunalis was born—a symbol of hope and metamorphosis, with Prickly Pear Seed Oil as the hero ingredient of all of its products.

We went to work, and after rigorously testing and perfecting the products over the course of two years, Lunalis embodies everything Laila and I have ever dreamed of.

Through a special cold-press process, the Prickly Pear’s precious oil is extracted from its seeds to produce a product that’s extremely high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (60% concentration), vitamins E and K, Omega 6 fatty acids, and numerous minerals. Regular users will vouch that its powerful effects are guaranteed as it noticeably illuminates the skin from the inside out while tightening the pores, reducing dark circles, smoothing fine lines and countering redness and rosacea. It also transforms the skin’s texture, leaving behind a complexion that’s soft, supple, and hydrated.

Collaborating with others of the same ilk, we’re working to transform the lives of the women, families, and villages of Morocco—and soon, all over the world. We hope you’ll try our clean, natural products, so that you, too, can witness a total transformation of your skin.

Improving digital experience is everything

Published

on

All eyes are now on businesses as they navigate the online world.

Organisations are trying to optimise their website, social media and mobile applications to capture customers, and provide a flawless digital experience.

But, how can this be done?

“There is a real thirst for leveraging the data of customer behaviour,” Optimizely‘s Paul North revealed to Ticker News. “This is all a part of the customer digital experience online.”

North also spoke about the importance of the company’s ‘data core service’ – a free service for clients, to better understand customers and how it can help businesses to grow.

“We are getting queries from our customers, about what their customers are doing online,” he adds. “every touchpoint you ave with a customer is a chance to get to know them better.

“You also get the chance to understand them, the content they are interested in, and to enrich their experience.”

North also went on to detail why a personalised aspect is crucial in a fast-paced world.

“Everyone in the digital space talks about the three-second flicker,” he continues. “If you don’t have the engagement in real-time, you lose them to another digital property.

“This could be your competitor, or another service, or another avenue of interest that the end user may have.

“Our aim is to help organisations contextualise customer experiences in real-time using Artificial Intelligence and a data bank built up, and by doing this, the experience become relevant and contextualised, keeping people engaged with your brand.”

The way people train and take care of their body has significantly changed over the years, with bodyweight calisthenics becoming a popular choice for many.

Maximum Potential Calisthenics‘ Nathan Leith says there has been a boom over the past 12-24 months in the industry.

“There has been a decrease over the past decade of people wanting to go to the gym,” Leith points out on Ticker News. “They don’t want to build that huge, massive physique.

“A structural shift towards functional training has been seen.

“People want to stay mobile, build strength and learn a few more skills.”

Leith argues there are benefits for people to get into Calisthenics, as it appeals to anyone.

“There is no need for weights, or a gym,” he highlights. “It can be done outside and people seem to love it.”

“Anybody is able to do it, especially if people are able to do the moves and then improve on it.”

Leith also points out form and safety are paramount when doing the exercises, which is why they keep their class sizes small.

“People want to get their form and detail correct,” Leith adds. “Before anyone signs up, we will assess how people perform certain actions. and history.”
