PB Radar: The people, places and events Professional Beauty is currently crushing on.
New Salon Brands Launch
Launching this season are two new skincare brands looking to extend their presence in salons across the country. Boutique British brand Jane Scrivner has arrived with a line of natural and organic formulations.
ANZ distributor Georgina Webster describes the award-winning line: “with antioxidant protection and free radical mopping, [the brand] is rebalancing, nurturing, replenishing, nourishing and hydrating, with a totally relaxing treatment that’s specifically designed to complement the retail line.”
Targeting a different skin altogether are the founders of BUTT’NE, Sarah Grace and Kiyomi Booth – Brisbane-based beauty therapists who recently launched with a three-step treatment pack specifically designed to treat acne on clients’ derrières.
“Because our facial skin is thinner than that on the body and the body’s fat layer beneath the skin is thicker, it has a naturally occurring, slower skin cell turnover rate, which often results in drier, thicker, and scalier skin,” explains the duo. “In turn, the perfect environment is created for ingrown hair and clogged pores in unbreathable areas! BUTT’NE is formulated much stronger than regular facial skincare to give power-packed results for the dense, thickened skin on the booty and surrounds. It’s designed by someone who has spent 15 years treating acne in-clinic, so we know exactly what this skin truly needs.”

Made with Macadamia
Macadamia nut oil is an up-and-comer in the skincare and cosmetics space. The oil is presently a sought-after specialist niche product that can be used as a carrying agent for skincare products, aromatherapy and therapeutic oils.
“Macadamia oil is also a sustainable substitute for other oils such as coconut and palm oil, commonly used in cosmetic products, with more manufacturers looking to include macadamia
oil as part of their eco-friendly credentials,” said General Manager of Marquis Marketing Charles Cormack.
Avilla Farm Macadamia Skin Care is a family-owned brand based in Northern New South Wales. The brand stocks multiple products that hero macadamia oil such as a face scrub, hand and body lotion, and face oil.
“Macadamia oil mimics the natural oils on your skin so it suits most skin types. It is
rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E and soaks in easily to your skin to instantly hydrate it. With only one plant based ingredient and nothing added to it, it is so natural you could eat it!” said Avilla Farm about the face oil.
A range of Dr. Hauschka products also contain macadamia nut oil because of the ingredient’s quick-absorbing ability that provides skin with a protective finish and also smooths out imperfections for easy application. Their soothing mask for sensitive and irritated skin promises to provide comfort and radiance to skin prone to stress-induced redness, while their foundation and concealer combines mineral pigments with nourishing botanical ingredients such as pomegranate, macadamia nut oil and coconut oil to hydrate and protect skin.
Sothys Goes Organic
French skincare brand Sothys has released the Sothys Organics line. The range incorporates ingredients like oleo-extract, honeysuckle, raspberry seeds and Camargue rice, and includes four ultra-sensorial products for home use. Many of the products also exclusively use organic plant active ingredients like birch sap, hawthorn floral water, and alfalfa extract.
Sothys products can be used in an organic professional treatment that promises deep relaxation for 30 minutes and includes make-up removal, a scrub, revitalising birch serum, and a modeling massage mask.
The brand is also collaborating with Plastic Bank to make the range plastic neutral by committing to collecting 1 kg of used plastic from the environment for every 1 kg of plastic used in packaging. In addition, the packaging used for the range is 100% recyclable and created with a vegan formula.

MCoBeauty’s Glossy Makeover
MCoBeauty has released a new Glow Lip Balm that combines the best qualities of a high-shine gloss with a hydrating balm. The two-in-one gloss and treatment is available in four flavours: rose, apple, watermelon, and berry. The product also features a plumping and moisturising formula that immediately soothes dry, chapped lips and simultaneously delivers a non-sticky coat of glossy shine. The ingredients used include shea butter, sweet almond oil, coffee seed oil, and glycerin — all of which ensure long-wearing hydration and silky smoothness.
We’re also loving the brand’s UltraStay Flawless Foundation that provides a medium-full coverage base and is packed with skin-loving ingredients like chamomile, and fruit extracts from ginseng root, pomegranate, and calendula. The product is rich in antioxidants and controls oil and shine for up to 24 hours.

KeraFactor Arrives in Australia
KeraFactor by SkinQRI has launched in Australia with Advanced Cosmeceuticals securing distribution rights. A hair and scalp-first treatment system, the formulation combines a patented set of seven biosynthetic polypeptides. The product line-up works in conjunction with various treatment methods, including microneedling, PRP and mesotherapy, as well as the KeraLase treatment to achieve maximum product absorption and optimum results.
KeraFactor contains five biomimetic growth factors and two skin proteins to support scalp and hair using LaseMD Ultra technology. The recommended treatment protocol is one treatment session every month for 3 to 6 months (3-6 total treatments) and patients should apply KeraFactor Scalp Stimulating Solution and Scalp Stimulating Shampoo & Conditioner at home daily, in between treatments.

+ FAST FACT: According to The University of California, the average woman will apply lipstick 2-14 times over a 12-hour period and will unknowingly ingest as much as 87 milligrams of product each day; which, over a lifetime, can equate to over two kilograms.
